Musical Monday: West Side Story - I Feel Pretty (#46).

[Every Monday, I'm going to be counting down my 52 favorite musical numbers from musical movies and TV shows. I might not like the full movie/show, but the number makes the list for various reasons: 1) I have to like the song, 2) the visual of how the number is performed is most likely unique or fun, 3) both song and visual mixes well to create an exciting or powerful number. So let's get to the next on the list.]

This is a movie that's kind of "in between" for me. It's a 'modernized' version of Romeo and Juliet, and it's alright on the whole. It's very cheesy and whatnot, but considering it's also R&J, that does make sense. There are plenty of good songs in the film, too, but there's one that I always seem to go back to. This is a song I'll randomly start singing if something reminds me of it. It's probably one of the most famous songs in the movie. It was most notably used as a big joke in Adam Sandler's Anger Management with Jack Nicholson. And the song? "I Feel Pretty."

  1. I love this scene. So many great songs from the movie, but I love this song every time it's done.
