Calendar Girl | 1993 | PG-13 | - 5.3.5

Jason Priestley and buddies travel to California in 1962 to meet their idol, Marilyn Monroe.

SEX/NUDITY 5 - Three close-up scenes of Marilyn Monroe's nude 1950's calendar shot (only her breasts are shown in the photo). One scene where a couple is interrupted while in bed; they are covered up and nothing is shown. There is a long nude beach scene where many male and female buttocks are obvious and many breasts are shown -- although not up close. There is some sexually explicit language and conversations about sex.

VIOLENCE/GORE 3 - Two boxing scenes, one brief and one rather long with many punches but no gore. There is a brief scene where a man is punched by gangsters a few times, and another where a man is threatened by said gangsters and thrown around; nothing graphic is shown. There is a fistfight between two men; one's mouth and nose are bloodied. A man is supposedly shot and bleeding but is really just fine.

LANGUAGE 5 - Three F-words, as well as some scatological references and a few mild profanities. There are also several scenes containing sexually explicit language.

DISCUSSION TOPICS - Lack of closeness between parent and son, the importance of friendships.

MESSAGE - Loyalty and friendship are the most important things in life and your own desires should take a back seat, when necessary.

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
