Like Barnum himself, it's an elegant fraud, nice enough to look at as long as you don't look too close.

A film that's as big and extravagant as musicals get. Run away to the circus and let it win you over.

If you're a fan of movie musicals, this will be straight up your alley. If you're looking for a biographical storytelling of P.T. Barnum's life, you're not going to get it.

As genuinely if superficially enjoyable as The Greatest Showman is, there is something unseemly in embracing so tidy a view.

The Greatest Showman aims to be a old-school musical in every best sense of the word. Hugh Jackman shines and catchy lyrics make for a great extragavaganza

While maybe not the greatest show, it is one of the best musicals of the last decade.

The irony is that while LA LA LAND probably enabled THE GREATEST SHOWMAN to be made, THE GREATEST SHOWMAN is by far the better musical.

I will personally be watching Zac Efron and Zendaya doing aerial acrobatics on "Rewrite the Stars" quite a few more times between now and whenever either the rental period runs out or The Greatest Showman is sent to jail for crimes against chill-ness.

I love beautiful, well-crafted, profound musicals with cleverly rhymed lyrics. Fortunately, I also enjoy shallow throwaway puff pieces with catchy tunes, lyrics that are purely functional, and dead-end subplots.

I may have gotten tired of just listening to the songs, but I could watch the cast dance to them over and over, simply because they make it look so effortless and fun.
