Storyline

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 KGF Vissers

Quotes

12 Year-Old Roy: [the other guys can't come up with a decent letter to Marilyn Monroe, so Roy suggest his version] OK, how 'bout this: 'We're your biggest fans. You don't have any bigger fans in the whole world. We love you, and we especially love your big, pointy tits. They're like missiles... '
12-Year-Old Scott: No, uh-uh.
12-Year-Old Ned: Roy, we can't say that to her.
12 Year-Old Roy: [defensive] Ladies love to hear that stuff, 'cause they got 'em, and they don't think about 'em as much as we do. We *have* to let 'em know.

Pleasant Teen Movie About Growing Up
19 March 2005 | by Scoval71See all my reviews

A pleasant and amusing story about three senior high school students (although all look way older than that) who are infatuated with Marilyn Monroe. (so am I am and who isn't or wasn't?) It is a nice movie about the importance of the value of good friends. There are various sub plots here. Jason Priestley's character learns to reconnect with his estranged father and all three young men learn and grow by the end of the movie. It is funny and amusing and really rather sweet. I enjoyed it and I recommend it. Jason Priestly does a good job, but he is so much shorter, he is 5'6 or 5'7, than the other two boys who are 6 ft, and he is always looking so short--they even hold him up to see an event in the movie. Anyway, it is an enjoyable movie and one especially suited to teenagers, and, of course, all us Marilyn Monroe fans. There are various clips from Marilyn's movies. Lest we forget.
