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

2Hairspray
This is a GREAT movie and musical. It's very funny and has a great message.

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!

4The Wizard of Oz

5Wicked

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*

14Singin' In The Rain

15The Lion King

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.

17Funny Girl
One of the most interesting Broadway musicals I know. Barbra Streisand is amazing.

18Saturday Night Fever

19Legally Blonde

20Shrek The Musical

21The Wonderful Wizard of Oz

22Jesus Christ Superstar

23Oliver!

24High School Musical

25Tenacious D: The Pick of Destiny
The greatest film in the world

26Chicago

27Hello, Dolly!

28The Sound of Music
It's a musical that my entire family loved growing up and they showed it in school a lot too.

29Little 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!

30Bedknobs & 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.

31Fame

32Chitty Chitty Bang Bang

3313

34The King and I (1956)

35Across the Universe

36Frozen (2013)

37Sunshine 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!

38South Park: Bigger, Longer and Uncut

39The Book of Mormon

40Rocky Horror Picture Show

41Kiss 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.

42Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street

43Annie
This is a musical I watched as a kid and still continue to LOVE it.

44Barbie as the Princess and the Pauper

48We Will Rock You
