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

3Grease

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

4Les Miserables

Out of all the musicals it has the most powerful message and music. Watching it live is so powerful

8West Side Story

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

I've seen this movie to many times. I don't have positive memories of it, but I don't know why.

9The Lion King
10Hairspray

The Contenders

11Mary Poppins
12Les Misérables
13Hair

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

14Burlesque
15Singin' In The Rain
16Mamma Mia!
17Cats

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.

18Funny Girl

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