The Top Ten

1
Grease
Grease is my favorite musical, and it would be my favorite movie if not for "American Graffiti". I like the original Broadway performance better than the movie and it irks me when people say Sandy has to be a blonde Australian onstage... When in the original, she's an all-American brunette. :) But, all that aside, Grease is definitely a classic. It might be a bit mature for some audiences though.
Lion King is the greatest movie with an incredible score and great songs. But unless you're talking about the west end show, the film doesn't really count as a musical. Because the story is so great. Grease will always be the greatest musical
A litle bit inappropriate for kids but great move

2The Wizard of Oz
This is the best movie, let alone musical of all time

3The Phantom of the Opera
THIS MUSICAL SHOULD BE ABOVE THE OTHERS ITS WAY BETTER

Awesome movie! They picked amazing singers and it really made the musical!

4Wicked

5Les Miserables
Out of all the musicals it has the most powerful message and music. Watching it live is so powerful
It's the best stage musical. The score is powerful and uplifting. It gets into your heart and soothes your soul. For musical films it has to be Singin' In The Rain - Gene Kelly...*sigh*

12Singin' In The Rain

13Hair
Great music, fine acting, important issues and brilliant film director.

14The Sound of Music
It's a musical that my entire family loved growing up and they showed it in school a lot too.

15Les Misérables

16Cats
Absolutely incredible. The score superb (Memory, Macavity: The Mystery Cat... look it up, they're all amazing), the dances are awesome (yay for Gillian Lynn! ), and the costumes and set design simply cannot be beaten (They're cats dancing in an oversized junkyard! It's so cool! ). And although we're talking about the stage show, the movie was absolutely phenomenal- finally, a movie-musical from the last 20 years that casts people because they're actually good instead of famous! Pure brilliance.

17Mamma Mia!

18Funny Girl
One of the most interesting Broadway musicals I know. Barbra Streisand is amazing.

19Saturday Night Fever

20Into The Woods
