Best Musical Movies of All Time


The Contenders: Page 3XW

43An American in Paris
44The Book of Mormon
45Rock of Ages

WHAT45! This movie has the greatest music from the greatest generation. The songs are legendary, the acting is amazing, and the vocals are out of this world. Even Tom Cruise was good in this movie.


Joel Grey with one of the best performances in film history.


This movie is so awesome! It reminds us that no matter what we look like, character is what matters.

48Into the Woods
49Sunshine On Leith

Dexter Fletcher from Bugsy Malone makes a cameo in this musical movie as a stumbling farting drunk falling out of a pub during the Over and Done With number.

With a songbook that features 500 Miles, (Oh) Jean, Misery to Happiness, Over and Done With, and Let's Get Married, you can't go wrong

If you know anything about The Proclaimers (Sunshine on Leith is based around songs from The Proclaimers) you could go "OK someone will promise to walk 500 miles, someone will go to America to send back a letter, someone will be called (Oh) Jean who very probably should have been loves and someone will be on a journey from misery to happiness.

But all that doesn't matter as you will be entertained reguardless.

Unlike the other musical movies on this list, Sunshine on Leith is subtle.

Beautiful music great story and culture

51Annie Get Your Gun
52Mr. Toad's Wild Ride

Eric Idle, Terry Jones, Steve Coogan, John Cleese, Michael Palin, Bernard Hill, Victoria Wood and even Stephen Fry is in this movie adaptation.

Slight Error: this is the version of Wind in the Willows that features songs like Mr Toad and It's our Secret of Survival in a Very Nasty World. - Skinner

The world is full of heroes as history books have shown, but never a name goes down to fame compared to that of Toad.

If there was ever a case in point that the villains get all the best musical numbers in a musical, this is one of those cases.

This is brilliant, Oliver should be higher than this, the songs are really catchy and great!

For heartfelt musical movies, Britain seems to be the way to go. Oliver! Created this trend while Sunshine on Leith reinvented it.
