Awful movies we wish were musicals

Waterworld: The Musical? Yes, please!


Sea battles, giant props, floating communities all staged on water … what could possibly go wrong?

Speed 2: Cruise Control

Poor dialogue enhanced by explosives, lighting techniques and stunts—aka the perfect Vegas production.


Never mind ridiculous turns and a nonsensical plot; physical comedy and semi-hilarious lines beg for a live and unarmed audience.

Battlefield Earth

Worse things have happened.

Tammy and the T-Rex

An animatronic dinosaur, murder, teenage romance and vengeance. Like a Disney Broadway Musical.
