I can't believe that this thread has got to 4 pages and no-one has said "South Park: The Movie".  So I will!

Mrs Nerd is a big musical fan so, while I hadn't seen many musicals before we started going out, I've seen plenty over the past 5 years.

Favourites for me: Chicago (film or stage, they're very similar), Little Shop of Horrors (film version) and Avenue Q (stage).  Along with South Park, of course.

Least favourite: Moulin Rouge and Rocky Horror Picture Show (I think you had to be there at the time for RHPS, nowadays it just seems like a bunch of students acting badly and trying to shock).

The first 15 minutes of the Tenacious D movie is almost the best musical ever.  The film heads downhill pretty quickly, though.

[edit] Oh, and in a more traditional way, Godspell. I was in the cast for a local production when I was 16!

There are musical elements in 'Team America World Police'. I did an LEL training video to one of the songs.

I worked with Howard Keel once.  He was pretty old, but he still had a wonderful voice.  Nice guy.
Getting there...

We went to Jersey Boys last night.  I expected to be wowed (after all the hype) and was a bit disappointed. VeloYellow expected to be totally bored and thought it was "quite good" (and far better than Phantom which is his low benchmark).

It doesn't make it onto my list of favourites.

Yes.  West Side Story.  Both stage and film.

And (please don't tell any of my mates) Singin' in the Rain.

This, although the stage West Side Story edges out the film, mostly because I'm more familiar with stage versions.

I love Singin' in the Rain. I love the way they make the dancing look so effortless.

The Sound of Music
Chitty Chitty Bang Bang
Evita
Joseph

To be fair, I like most musicals, but those would be my faves.

Team America World Police

The follow up (well same writers) book of Mormon by all accounts is very good too

I did have a go at producing a musical version of LEL, but the dancing was poor. The soundtrack featured songs from South Pacific, The Wizard of Oz and Okalahoma, the trailer was to a tune from Team America World Police.
The 2013 LEL might be made to Dogme rules, to conform to the recent fashion for Danish drama.

Probably Gentlemen Prefer Blondes - not just the music, but the dialogue.  :thumbsup:

Pal Joey. The film. Does it count? The music is truly fab.
