Movies That Everyone Mistakes for Musicals

Genres are hard to categorise absolutely, but I think a musical is a movie with at least one nondiegetic musical number sung by the characters. Some of these are on here because all of the musical numbers are diegetic, or because they are dance movies where the characters do not actually sing. The only one I am willing to budge on is All That Jazz, which is just hard to determine because how do you categorise musical numbers happening in a character's hallucination all clustered at the end of the movie? It's up to the individual but for me I don't think of All That Jazz as a real musical -- just a movie about a musical director and his work.
