Trivia:
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 Wish Parker Posey Would Get More Star Vehicles Like This, 12 July 2006
Author: evanston_dad from United States

Parker Posey flashes her 1,000-kilowatt smile frequently in this film, and your enjoyment of the movie will rely primarily on how smitten you are by Posey's quirky charm.

Count me as a follower. I think Posey is a hoot in everything she's in, incapable of giving an ordinary performance. I have a feeling that in "Party Girl" she plays a variation of herself, but that's just fine with me. She appears in virtually every frame of the film, but the movie isn't much of anything without her, so I welcomed the overdose of Posey.

The script for "Party Girl" feels half-assed, though I did appreciate the existential crisis faced by Posey's character and the shelter she seeks in the Dewey Decimal System as a way of bringing order to her chaotic existence. I wish the screenwriters had taken clever hooks like that further. And the ending had a conventional, all-loose-ends-tied-up quality that would better suit a television sitcom than an out-there indie film.

But none of these faults take anything away from Posey herself, so really, how serious can they be?

Grade: B
