    The Wizard of Oz is my favourite. Dont like musicals on the whole though, in fact I tend to avoid them at all costs.

    Grease, Wizard of Oz, Mary Poppins, Sound of Music and Willy Wonka are ACCEPTABLE... but would be BETTER without the songs

    Grease :D

    Is Willy Wonka a musical? I mean, it has plenty of songs- but a musical as such?

    Hmm, I think I actually get along fairly well with musicals. Not as bad as some people... A top 5:

    01 The Lion King (cheating, but whatever)
    02 Moulin Rouge!
    03 The Umbrellas of Cherbourg
    04 Le Million
    05 Dancer in the Dark

    I think Singin' in the Rain is really really good (the title sequence is one of my favourite scenes EVER) but don't really *love* it like so many others do. Meet Me In St. Louis was another kewl MGM musical IMO.

    To each their own. I thought it was cute, charming and ultimately bittersweet, and Catherine Deneuve was adorable. Took me a while to get used to the style but once I did it was all sweet fun. Nevertheless, I didn't originally think *THAT* much of it after viewing (wouldn't have put it above Le Million, for example), but the more I reflect upon it the higher I think of it.

    Adorable? She was a slut! The most detestable character on screen I've seen for ages. She was nothing but a silly little prissy BITCH!

    A slut?! That's a bit of a stretch? She got pregnant and married another man. Her mother was the silly little prissy BITCH.

    No, she was a stupid 17 year old slut. The father of her baby goes to war and the little Madam marries some old dude and pisses off just because she can't wait for him to return. She leaves, not even informing her b/f's friends and family where she's going. She could have at least told Madelaine and given her a forwarding address. But no, assumed dead boyfriend returns to find his girlfriend and baby have buggered off, aunt dead, mother-in-law dead and he falls apart.

    Then at the end you find Catherine Deneuve has left her child with her grandmother and is only popping back to town to pick her up... how long was she gone if she hadn't been back yet her child was just dumped on someone else? BAD MOTHER. SLUT.

    Oh, and the music was rubbish.

    Grease is amazing. As is Grease 2, NOT ENOUGH PEOPLE APPRECIATE GREASE 2!!!!

    Moulin Rouge is fantastic! Wizard of Oz is amazing too.

    I do love a West End musical too!

    Grease 2 is totally awful but in a good way, you can't beat a bit of Michelle Pfeiffer singing "Cool rider"
