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 »

"Party Girl" is one of my all time favorite movies. The movie portrayed early 90's raving very well. Raves became distorted in later movies and television shows trying to depict that era of clubbing. The only show I can think of at the moment is "Saved by the Bell: The College Years" where Zack, wearing all plaid, has an idea to have a rave on campus, decked out with black lights, horrible music, and "whip-its."
"Party Girl" set itself apart from these stereotypical rave-umentaries by showing how raves (true raves) were not glow-stick, lolly-sucking teenage rebellion-fests. Posey, showing style and attitude, portrayed an over-the-top character who isn't necessarily perfect, but plays her part well. The movie isn't all about drugs, like other genre movies such as "Playing Mona Lisa." Posey played a girl that I know many of.
The movie epitomized the early 90's rave era. Watch this movie at least once just for Posey's performance.
