Bringing Up Baby (1938)

—4 STARS— 

Recently, I’ve been feeling like watching an old movie, so when I saw that Bringing Up Baby was free with Amazon Prime, I went ahead and enjoyed the show.

At first, I was a little surprised and maybe a little disappointed with the nonsensical style of humor, but then I relaxed and accepted that older shows definitely differ from the modern styles of cinema. (A lot of the movie was definitely slap-stick humor.) Sometimes, a change in entertainment is nice. Plus, I always enjoy seeing the styles of fashion for different eras; the costumes were great!

All in all, the whole story was really cute. It was about an engaged zoologist (“David”) who was looking for funding for his museum and a random, tipsy woman (“Susan”) who falls in love with him and gets him into tons of trouble. (Susan is not his fiancee.) The movie ends with David and Susan trying to catch Susan’s pet leopard (“Baby”) who has escaped and is running around town loose. What both of them fail to realize is that Baby isn’t the only leopard out in the night and that this other leopard might not be so sweet… 🙂

Reminded me of: the movie Duck Soup (because of the style of humor; Bringing Up Baby wasn’t quite that extreme, though); Cary Grant reminded me of Gregory Peck (I think they both look really similar)
