Doris Day Becomes Radioactive

The three stages in the life of a Netflix subscriber:

1.  Wow, look at all of these great movies I've always wanted to see! I think I'll rent all of them!
2.  Hmm, I didn't get a chance to see this when it came out last summer. Now I can finally watch it.
3.  Well, there's nothing I really want to watch. I guess I'll just pick something at random and see if it's any good.

We have, unfortunately, been mired at stage 3 for quite some time. Thus it was that, after working our way through all of the classic Gene Kelly and Fred Astaire musicals, we found ourselves watching Doris Day in My Dream is Yours. It's an insipid and derivative musical comedy, and hardly worth your time, except, early in the movie, when Doris Day goes nuclear.
