I know Zimmer rips Mozart in his romantic comedies, but if it comes to film scores, Zimmer was first to note that Mozart's style fits the genre. In fact when I gave Zimmer's Nine Months to my pal one day he told me the score was written by Mozart not Zimmer and he rather liked it, even though he disliked the Clarinet Concerto Zimmer modelled on. Zimmer does credit the composers he models on/rips off from, but not on his CD. He talks about it widely in his interviews
