Thomas Jay Ryan,
Party Girl follows a twentysomething Schwartz, as she navigates adulthood while working with a band of quirky co-workers at a Los Angeles party company that specializes in themed birthdays. Loosely based on her real life experiences.
Mary is a free-spirited young woman with a run-down New York apartment and a high fashion wardrobe. She calls her godmother, a librarian, for bail money after being arrested for throwing an illegal party. To repay the loan, she begins working as a library clerk. At first she hates it, but when challenged decides to master the Dewey Decimal System and become a great library clerk, while romancing a falafel vendor and helping her roommate in his goal to become a professional DJ.

In the Spring 1995 edition of RQ (Reference & User Services Quarterly) an article by Dewdney & Mitchell appeared titled "Oranges and Peaches: Understanding Communication Accidents in the Reference Interview" details a reference interview at a library where the Origin of Species is mistaken for Oranges and Peaches, as in the film. According to the article's footnotes, the story was taken from a discussion on the LIBREF-L list (p. 534). It's unclear whether the script or the LIBREF-L discussion/article came first. See more »
I may have made a mistake but that is no reason to patronize me. It is dismaying that your expectations are based on the performance of a lesser primate, and also revelatory of a managerial style which is sadly lacking. Is it any wonder then that I've chosen not to learn the intricacies of an antiquated and idiotic system
i think not!
If you had really loved my mother, you wouldn't treat me like this.

I remember seeing this years ago when it first came out and I was floored by Parker Posey's performance. And the movie was pretty good also. For anyone who's spent a little too much time in the nightclub/after-hours scene, this movie will have a special charm for you. Not too serious, mostly funny, and Parker Posey definitely blazes her talented way through this indie gem.
I especially liked the Diaz character (reminded me of every single struggling DJ I've ever known). And many other movies could take a cue from this movie on how to preach the virtue of responsibility without being boring and bland about it.
