Musicals are some of the best comfort movies and often we end up memorizing every song. This is a list of musical movies we keep watching, even when there are newer, more acclaimed, or overall better musicals to watch. Because it doesn't have to be good to be a rewatchable movie musical, you just have to love it.

These are the movies we own multiple copies of, so if they're not available on streaming, we can still get our fix. Some of the greatest musical movies, like Grease and Chicago, have obvious rewatch value. Or, they're classic movie musicals and watching West Side Story and The Wizard of Oz is as regular as breathing. But then there are movies like Rock of Ages that are just much-loved guilty pleasures.

It doesn't matter why you like rewatching movie musicals, only that you love to watch them again and again. What musicals do you think are the best to rewatch?
