Confused hulking homeless superhero The Maxx tries to protect his social worker and friend Julie from an omniscient serial killer Mr. Gone both in the real world, which may or may not actually be real, and the subconscious fantasy world.
Like many adolescent boys, Roy Darpinian had the hots for movie divas, and one in particular was his wet dream as half of America's in the 1950s: Marilyn Monroe. The difference is, one summer holiday he actually decided to enlist his spineless buddies, Scott Foreman and Ned Bleuer, to actually drive all the way to Hollywood and make as many desperate attempts as it takes to meet her or get arrested trying, and no setback or embarrassment (even publicly bare-ass) can stop or distract him. Against all odds, he finally even got a chance to help her... Written by
Despite this film getting its title from Neil Sedaka's hit song from the early Sixties, Calendar Girl which does take place at that time is about three teen males with raging hormones wanting to meet that ultimate of Calendar Girls, Marilyn Monroe. If you remember Marilyn did the ultimate calendar photos back before these kids reached puberty, but they do discover here and she kind of brings the male out in all three of them.
Anyway our three teens are Jason Priestley, Jerry O'Connell, and Gabriel Olds who decide to take a trip to Hollywood to meet the girl of their wet dreams. Interesting they chose Marilyn, back then which was when I was that age, your typical heterosexual budding teen male fantasized more about Annette Funnicello than Marilyn Monroe. But these kids certainly had mature tastes.
Olds narrates the film which is seen through his character eyes and frankly when you come right down to it, it's about stalking. Of course the term hadn't been invented yet. But now a film star of the magnitude of Marilyn Monroe would not be so accommodating. We've heard real stories about people like Brad Pitt and David Letterman dealing with stalking fans.
Still it's a harmless teenage comedy and will no doubt please the fans of the leads.
