Remember when Legally Blonde became a musical and all of a sudden, in just a bend and a snap, everything was right with the world? Seeing Elle Woods come to life on stage to the beat of sugar-coated original showtunes was what dreams are made of.

No people, not Wonder Woman or Iron Man (sorry), but thoughtful and quirky films that require another layer of deep introspection. Something that only an emotionally-rooted song sung in A minor and accompanied by a well-choreographed Fosse-style dance number. Jazz hands with a side of one, two shuffle has Wes Anderson films written all over it.
