As pretty as James Dean holograms, the hunky stars of Beverly Hills, 90210 lack the charismatic heft necessary to register on the big screen. Luke Perry barely reflected light in Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and now Jason Priestly — the more talented of the two — leers innocuously and tilts his beautiful eyebrows in this synthetic piffle about a trio of teens who drive to L.A. in 1962 to get a date with Marilyn Monroe. Calendar Girl revives the voyeuristic smarminess of early-’80s spring-break comedies, only here, with a PG-13 rating and the obligatory period hits on the soundtrack (some of which didn’t actually come out until later in the ’60s), an attempt has been made to pass it off as soulful nostalgia. Is anything more depressing than sanitized exploitation. D
