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

3Wicked

4The 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!

5Hairspray
This is a GREAT movie and musical. It's very funny and has a great message.

6Les 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*

7Music Man

8Rent
WHEN THE RENT REVIVAL HAPPENS I WILL BE A PART OF IT! ¬°Viva La Vie Boheme!

9Hair
Great music, fine acting, important issues and brilliant film director.

10Mamma Mia!

The Contenders

11West Side Story
My favorite movie ever. If you voted for anything else, you probably haven't seen this movie, or musical. Pure perfection

14The Lion King

15Singin' In The Rain

16The Sound of Music
It's a musical that my entire family loved growing up and they showed it in school a lot too.

17Les Misérables

18Cats
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.

19Legally Blonde

20Funny Girl
One of the most interesting Broadway musicals I know. Barbra Streisand is amazing.

21Shrek The Musical

22Saturday Night Fever

23Into The Woods

24Oliver!

25My Fair Lady

26Jesus Christ Superstar

27The Wonderful Wizard of Oz

28The Little Mermaid

29High School Musical

30Tenacious D: The Pick of Destiny
The greatest film in the world

31Little Shop Of Horrors
My favourite musical (except possibly Les Mis), how is this not on the list? Ellen Greene was amazing, and the movie actually improved on the stage production with the song Mean Green Mother From Outer Space!
This is incredible one of the best musicals and songs like
Feed me Seymour (git it)
Meen green mother
And a lot more and 2 endings the original and darker one and the theatrical and brighter one

32South Park: Bigger, Longer and Uncut

33Carousel

34State Fair

35Chicago

36Hello, Dolly!

37Bedknobs & Broomsticks
Take the ingrediants of Sound of Music and pepper them with animated dancing fish, flamenco lobsters abnd one crazy soccer game and you get this much more superior offering.

38Fame

39Chitty Chitty Bang Bang

4013

41The King and I (1956)

42Across the Universe

43Frozen (2013)

44Sunshine on Leith
If Les Miserables was the big sweeping epic, Sunshine on Leith is the plucky indie darling.
Arguably the greatest British musical since Oliver!

45The Book of Mormon

46Rocky Horror Picture Show

47Kiss Me, Kate
The whole thing- from the hilarious plot, to the colorful characters- and not to mention the sensational score by Cole Porter- is so 'Wunderbar', I know not what else to say. Oh, aside from the fact that it's partially based off one of the best Shakespeare comedies of all time. Bonus.
So sweet and beautiful! Lovely.

48Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street

49Newsies
I love Newsies so much, it is truly underrated.

50Scrooge
Albert Finney stars in this musical adaptation of A Christmas Carol

51Spice World

52Annie
This is a musical I watched as a kid and still continue to LOVE it.
