Top Ten Movie Musicals

Top Ten Movie Musicals

You know you’re bored when you start picking your list of greatest musicals. What can I say? I love a good showtune! Below are my list of the greatest movie musicals of the past 60 years. Keep in mind that this is just my opinion. Everyone will have their own list. I took into how good the songs are, does the cast sing (or lipsync), is there some really good group choreography in it, and do I just like it. Is everyone going to agree with me? Oh hell no! They’ll just have to post their own Top Ten then. What’s yours?
