Top 10 Worst Musical Movies of All Time

The Top Ten
1 High School Musical

High School Musical is a film that some people like and some people hate. And for some reason, it has three movies (one of which made it into theaters), and there's a 4th one coming! I hate Kenny Ortega so much! Not as much as I hate Joe Rohde or Justin Bieber, but close.

This is the most unrealistic movie I have ever seen! Why are there random musical numbers in a high school!? When I went to high school, this never happened! Some of the songs are okay, I guess, but sometimes they come out of nowhere! Also, Zac Efron lip-syncs for most of the movie! In Breaking Free, he starts singing terribly, then seconds later, he suddenly sings better!

I discussed how much I hate Troy and Gabriella when I was talking about the worst Disney movie couples. Each movie has them experiencing conflict with their relationship. This movie is also filled with stereotypes! For example, there's a character named Sharpay, who is a mean girl and thinks she is better than everyone else! And she can't sing if her life depended on it! This movie makes zero sense!

2 Grease 2

It was painful enough the first time. Travolta was girlier than Newton-John.

This is, by far, the worst musical in history!

Who even likes either Grease movie?

3 Hannah Montana: The Movie
4 Annie (2014)

I felt like my ears were bleeding during this movie! I was really surprised by how bad this movie was! I didn't think it was gonna be good, but I also didn't think it was gonna be HORRIBLE! It's such a terrible remake of an already good musical! Even as its own thing, it's still awful!

Whenever Annie sings, you can tell her voice is auto-tuned! It sounds terrible! Also, Cameron Diaz is in this movie, and this is probably her worst performance yet! I can't stand her in this! I also found this movie to be very predictable! Honestly, even Jamie Foxx couldn't save this movie!

5 Once Upon a Mattress
6 Rent

Time to rant about Rent! It sucks! I haven't seen the Broadway musical, but after watching this movie, I don't think I want to see it! People might be saying that the play is better, but I doubt it since I absolutely hate these songs! Except for Seasons of Love.

The songs are very bland, uninteresting, and repetitive! This is the first time I have ever hated a character played by Idina Menzel! Although, my favorite part of the movie involved her character, but I'm not going to say what it is because... reasons. Another problem I have is that the movie seems to keep adding in pointless moments as if they're trying to make the film longer than it deserves to be! This movie felt like it was 525,600 minutes long! I'm still debating on whether I should see the play when it comes to San Diego in January!

7 High School Musical 2
8 High School Musical 3: Senior Year
9 From Justin to Kelly
10 Glitter
The Contenders
11 Home on the Range

This is the worst Disney animated movie ever made! To sum it up, the characters are annoying, the villain hypnotizes the cows by yodeling, and this movie has the absolute most forgettable songs ever put in ANY movie! That's pretty sad since the songs are written by Alan Menken. The songs in Hercules aren't good, but at least they are memorable to some extent!

12 The Rocky Horror Picture Show

I'm gonna be honest here. This is one of the worst movies I have ever seen! I was absolutely amazed by how bad this film was! So much cringe! It was very painful to watch! It made me wonder why it was so popular.

Apparently, back in the 70s, they would have special midnight showings in which people would dress up as the characters, bring props, and dance along to the songs! So it's not even the movie itself that's popular! It's only popular because of audience participation. When I watched this movie, I wanted to turn it off within 20 minutes, but unfortunately, I had to watch the whole thing for homework.

Tim Curry plays a pansexual scientist, which is beyond weird! My least favorite song is Creature of the Night! I don't really want to talk about that song because it is random and horrible. For some reason, this movie is getting a remake, starring Victoria Justice and the guy that plays Diggie from Liv and Maddie. I don't understand how this movie got a remake! It is so bad!

13 The Pirate Movie
14 Teen Beach Movie

Wow! There are NO good Disney Channel Original Movies! That's pretty sad. And there's been 100 of them already. Teen Beach Movie is, in my opinion, the worst of them! And since there are 99 other terrible ones, that says A LOT!

Two teenagers go surfing, and then a giant wave makes them end up in the beach musical they were watching earlier in the film! I have no idea how that is possible. Throughout the movie, Mack and Brady have no choice but to sing. This movie actually seems to make fun of musicals in a way. Mack and Brady are aware that randomly breaking into song and dance is weird. That's a pretty good idea, but they totally ruin it when they have a musical number at the very end of the film, even though they went back to the real world!

If I were trapped in that beach musical, I would go insane because the characters are irritating, and they do nothing but sing! I have no idea how this movie got a sequel. But the strange thing is, the sequel is actually better. It's still bad, but it has a much better story and some pretty funny and emotional moments. I would rather watch that again than this!

15 Hamilton
16 At Long Last Love

Peter Bogdanovich's tribute to Cole Porter musicals starring Cybill Shepherd and Burt Reynolds?

It's a dreary waste of time.

17 Hairspray

It has Zac Efron and Ariana Grande in its recent remakes. What more could you despise?

Also, its songs are uncatchy, and your best friend does not have to be the same gender as you, for God's sake! I give Hairspray a 3/10.

18 South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut

I'm gonna get a lot of hate for this, but South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut is terrible! I'm a huge fan of the show. It's very funny and enjoyable! The movie, however, not so much.

The four main kids go to see an R-rated movie, and after watching it, they can't stop swearing! For some reason, the kids seemed well-behaved before watching the movie, even though in previous episodes, they also had a thing for swearing. Because of the movie's negative effect on children, the parents of South Park decide to "blame Canada!" They even sing a song that gets nominated for an Oscar. It's a good thing Phil Collins wrote an awesome soundtrack for Tarzan! He totally deserved that win.

Why is this movie even a musical? It seems like the songs were added in because they needed to fill up time. The songs have literally no purpose, and some of them are parodies of Disney songs. Also, the parents have no reason to blame Canada for making an R-rated movie! It's not like they wanted kids to watch it. I know it's a joke, but Kyle's mom has never been this stupid!

I feel like I'm the only one who hates this movie! At least Sausage Party was much better!

19 Descendants

They actually found a way to ruin some of the best Disney villains ever! A little fun fact: Descendants wasn't originally going to be a musical. But then High School Musical director Kenny Ortega came in to direct!

The genres of songs they use in this film don't really work well. For example, THEY TURNED BE OUR GUEST INTO A RAP SONG! Why would they do that? I like rap, but they pretty much ruined a perfectly good song! I loved these Disney villains in their respective movies, but here they are just hateful! And not in a good way! Why would they cast Glinda from Wicked as Maleficent? At least we get to see Maleficent as a dragon in this movie! Unfortunately, the CGI is some of the worst I've seen!

Their kids are no better! I have absolutely no idea why Jafar's son, Jay, is a thief! He's supposed to be Jafar's son! Not Aladdin's son! This movie is somehow getting a sequel, which means people actually like this film! I hope it's better because I can't stand this film!

20 Xanadu
21 Moulin Rouge!

This movie is awful. It sucks, and I hate it. It has a lot of swearing in it, and it's a terrible movie.

Go watch The Greatest Showman instead. It's way better than this awful movie. Created by Calum Morrison

22 Shrek the Musical

It just feels wrong without the original cast. Aside from that, it's fine, I guess.

Kinda duller than the movie.

So! Stupid! I couldn't bear to watch it for very long.

23 Bratz the Movie (2007)

It makes High School Musical blush in every way!

24 The Phantom of the Opera

I still haven't seen the actual Broadway play. But from what I've heard, the play is MUCH better than the movie! I hope so because this movie is kind of stupid! Mainly because of the acting! I just couldn't get into these actors' performances! They weren't even trying! I absolutely hated Gerard Butler as the Phantom! Also, Gerard Butler CAN'T SING!

Some of the lip-syncing is also pretty bad! Sometimes it would look like a character's mouth is trying to sing something completely different. I really need to watch the play sometime because I would probably like it more.

25 Into the Woods

An excellent cast with a very interesting story, but it doesn't pay off very well in the end.

Just watch the actual play if you want to see this but actually good.

Very overrated. That's all I can say.
