"Party Girl" is slated to be re-released on DVD by Columbia TriStar Home =
Entertainment on July 1. Here's "Video Librarian"'s original review from =
1996:

Party Girl **1/2
(Columbia TriStar, 94 min., R)
"He's not a dick, he's a patron," godmother-librarian Judy corrects her =
NYC party-hardy goddaughter Mary (Parker Posey), who has been hired as a =
library clerk. It's one of the funnier lines in an otherwise uneven film =
about a club-hopping deb-wannabe who tries to balance her chaotic =
personal life with the ordered world of Melvil Dewey. If you're going to =
make one frivolous purchase this year, this is a funnier and much more =
appealing portrait of the library world than the idiotic 1992 effort The =
Gun in Betty-Lou's Handbag. A strong optional purchase. (R. Pitman)

Best,

Randy

I thought that it was really funny at times "he-he-hello!" but the =

nice to see a movie depiction of librarians' work being cool AND useful. =
*Loved* the scene where she catalogs the LPs :)
