So Bad It's Worth Watching

Sweethearts of the U.S.A. (1944)

* (out of 4)

Defense worker Patsy Wilkins (Una Merkel) gets a knock on the head and then dreams that she's in some sort of universe with her boyfriend (Harry Parke) and various musical acts. SWEETHEARTS OF THE U.S.A. is a highly recommended movie for film buffs not because it's great or even good. No, this film here is highly recommended because it's one of the worst you're ever going to see of its type. The film could certainly have enjoyed a BOMB rating if it wasn't for Merkel and the fact that the thing is so bad and so surreal that you can't help but keep watching it. I'm really not sure what the plot is supposed to be. I'm really not sure why we're in this dream. I'm not sure what's up with the musical numbers. I'm really not sure what's up with the boyfriend and his so-called detective material. This entire movie is just one really bad, really strange trip that should appeal to those who like to light up while watching strange movies. The musical numbers range from poor to bad and the dance sequences really aren't any better. Monogram was always known for making "C" grade material but even this here is rather embarrassing. As I said, it's somewhat fun but also sad seeing Merkel having to do material but fans of her should at least enjoy seeing her. The supporting cast is pretty much forgettable as is the rest of the film.
