When you go to see a musical, you fully expect characters to sing, because that's literally the whole point. Much less expected are musical scenes in non-musical movies. When you sit down for a drama or a comedy and someone on screen suddenly bursts into song, it can be a little shocking. Especially if they're not integrated into the story well, these sequences can leave you baffled.
The following movies all have a singing scene that comes in from left field. Several of those scenes, despite being unanticipated, actually serve some kind of valid purpose within the plot. Others are merely awkward, as they don't particularly gel with everything else. Regardless of function, these examples of characters singing in movies that aren't musicals are worth a closer look.
