Whether it came from a stage or not has absolutely nothing to do with whether something is a musical.
There are countless plays that are not musicals but are stage performances.

Likewise, there are lots of movies that have signing and dancing that weren't originally stage productions (Moulin Rouge, for one).

@pankate: Hence the "or in similar style"

What do you mean by "originated in similar style to stage" then? I don't see how Moulin Rouge originated in any style similar to stage. It was a movie first. Maybe I'm missing something in your question.

Of course Blues Brothers is a musical! but did anyone else think it was kind of racist?
