Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Sweet and airy and pleasantly nostalgic, Jason Priestley's first starring vehicle is cotton-candy entertainment for summer's end."
‑ John Hartl, Seattle Times
"On film, the story's charm fades fast."
‑ Johanna Steinmetz, Chicago Tribune
"A hackneyed period comedy."
‑ , TV Guide's Movie Guide
"You've seen it all before."
‑ , Film4
"The filmmakers, bound and determined to bring back the "horny teenager" genre of the early '80s, offer something offensive at every turn."
‑ Chris Hicks, Deseret News, Salt Lake City
"As such, it's a cute picture; if you were looking for the ideal word to describe Calendar Girl, it might be watchable."
‑ Michael Wilmington, Los Angeles Times
"The film revives the voyeuristic smarminess of early-'80s spring-break comedies, only now it's passed off as soulful nostalgia."
‑ Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly
"In this meant-to-be-charming saga of youthful adventure set in 1962, Priestley is the dead weight."
‑ Candice Russell, South Florida Sun-Sentinel
"Unfunny, unconvincing nostalgia trip"
‑ James Sanford, Kalamazoo Gazette
"When so few brain cells have been shed during the making of a movie, it seems foolish for others to expend more than their share figuring things out after the fact."
‑ Marjorie Baumgarten, Austin Chronicle
"Can't we just agree to let Marilyn Monroe rest in peace?"
‑ Carrie Rickey, Philadelphia Inquirer
"Masquerading as a wild romantic adventure, Calendar Girl is actually a dull, sanctimonious morality tale about the meaning of friendship and manhood in the manner of James Dean's melodramas."
‑ Emanuel Levy, Variety
"Poor teen period piece. Not enough Marilyn Monroe, and a god-awful chase subplot."
‑ Fred Topel,
"As good as any movie can be with Jason Priestley in the lead."
‑ Scott Weinberg,
