2.5: The plots in some classic Hollywood pictures could get pretty ridiculous. In many ways films like this, and other numerous screwball/romantic/musical comedies from the same era, are the antecedents of films like The Hangover and Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle. I can't quite imagine the modern versions without films like Bringing Up Baby, as much as I hate to compare them. Granted, Music in my Heart is also not worthy of comparison with pictures like Bringing Up Baby or Monkey Business either, but it does have a suitably ridiculous plot. It is lighthearted fluff. Seriously, nothing even remotely less than wonderful could ever happen to these characters. There is no room for anything but happiness in this world. Plus, it stars Rita Hayworth. She hadn't quite figured out how to maximize her sex appeal yet, but she certainly isn't an eyesore. Reasonably entertaining.
