Monday Movie Meme

Feature Presentation...


This week Molly and Andy at the Bumbles Blog ask about our favorite movie musicals, so here goes with my list:

  • Little Shop Of Horrors - Love Steve Martin's Dentist song. Great musical despite the songs getting worse as it goes along.

  • The Blues Brothers - Endlessly rewatchable. More musicals should have car crashes.

  • Beauty and the Beast - Like Little Shop, another great set of Ashmen & Menken songs.

  • Carousel - Far from perfect, but the fantasy element, along with My Boy Bill and You'll Never Walk Alone earn it a place in my top five.

  • Paint Your Wagon - Songs about beans and wind, and the sublime Wanderin' Star.

Also, as far as musicals that might have been, I wouldn't mind seeing James L Brooks's I'll Do Anything with its musical numbers reinstated.

DUH!!! I cannot believe we didn't list "Little Shop of Horrors." I absolutely love that movie - Steve Martin was indeed a particular favorite. Thanks for playing - come back often.

And by the way - your first post below was terrific! Too funny.
