Calendar Girl Reviews
3 friends who's lives are about to change embark on a fantasy road trip to do what they dreamed of doing ever since they were kids. To meet Marilyn Monroe. While in California, the trio begin to discover things about eachother and themselves that they have always underminded. This movie might be using a very cliche theme, especially in it's time, but it's a good theme. And what better way of representing that theme than have the story be about meeting a woman who in her time had always been underminded of her potential and seriousness. What makes this movie even more dramatic is when the boys look at Marilyn's photos of her naked in the pool, which any Marilyn fan would know that it would only be a short time afterwards that she will die. But as good as that plot may be, the theme doesn't have anything new to say, and there's some cheesy story about being chased my mobsters. So the movie isn't entirely serious or original, and at times doesn't even make sence at all.
Calendar Girl is done as a dramedy. I was mislead by a lot of critics about the quality of the movie. The movie has a very enjoyable pace to it that mixes it's themes and genres quite nicely. At least at that aspect the movie can be enjoyed. But the whole nostalgic '60s setting is not impressive, nor well done. And it could have had an amazing soundtrack, but it doesn't. The scenes are filmed well. Better than expected. And there's some creative choices as well. But overall it's nothing that you haven't seen already.
My opinion: it's not a great movie, nor an original, but it's certianly better than what I've heard about it. At times the story might not make sence, or it might be silly, but it's a journey movie that has a great theme, and a so-so character study that's lame, but fits well. The actors give an enjoyable preformance which gives the movie a few good moments. It's not that great, but it's a good watch anyways.
auqneu no aves con excelentes resultados, pero almenso si con unos entreteenidoss momentos como los de esta moviee!
who wants that Jerry O'Connell money!!?
"Calendar Girl" isn't a good movie. The reason I didn't like it is because it gets old just watching the three chase Marilyn Monroe the whole movie and mainly because the movie doesn't have good acting. Even the bad guys in the movie are unconvincing as the villains who try to get in Roy's way. I wouldn't recommend watching "Calendar Girl" unless you're real bored and there's nothing else on Tv. When the most memorable part of a movie is a nude scene and people only remember the movie by name because they skip forward to the nude beach scene to check out your buck naked butt, that's never a sign of a good movie. Stick to TV shows, Jason
