The debut feature from director Daisy von Scherler Mayer, Party Girl pretty much cemented Parker Posey's status as the indie-film "it girl" of the 1990s. Posey stars as Mary, a fun-loving and irresponsible twentysomething New Yorker who prefers throwing bashes at her loft to pay the rent over getting a real job. But when one of her shindigs gets broken up by the cops, Mary lands in the slammer and is forced to enlist the help of her librarian godmother, Judy (Sasha von Scherler, the director's mother). In order to prove that she's not the layabout she seems to be, Mary begins working at the library with Judy. Party Girl was nominated for the Grand Jury Prize at the 1995 Sundance Film Festival and was later turned into a short-lived Fox sitcom. ~ Matthew Tobey, All Movie Guide

This is a great and funny and charming film! by larbeck October 28, 2003 - 9:59 AM PST

This was my introduction to Parker Posey! She is wonderful as a party girl who learns to appreciate a career at the Holy Temple of Knowledge - a library! Seriously, it may sound lame to some (but never to me, libraries have always been sacred to me - it is where I discovered the _Electric_Acid_Kool-Aid_Test_ and the Tao and much more coolness and that is ANYTHING but lame!)!. But this film works, it really works. And I have never seen her in any role as fun or as charming or as freaking cool as this since one. She could be the most overlooked actor in films today. Someone PLEASE cast her again in a leading role! Give her a five picture deal, quick!

Highlight the blacked out text with your mouse for spoiler information. Hamano showed me how, thank you!

Over The Top & Out Of This World !!!
Just when you thought you've seen it all, here is something completly different. Movies that are off beat, over the top, or just plain "campy". Recomended for a Friday or Saturday night.
Eclectic Taste ~ Always a WIP
Such a lame title for a list, but an eclectic taste deserves an eclectic list. Be forewarned, I have superficial tastes.
