The reason I don't like musicals (with the the honourable exception of Gentlemen Prefer Blondes and Li'l Abner), is the idea that a bunch of people will suddenly and spontaneously start singing and dancing in the street to one song they somehow all know is too ridiculous to enjoy.

Watch "Once"--it's the "realistic" musical.
