Great movie with amazing energy and beautiful soundtrack. Not sure why so many critics disliked it. Perhaps it's because critics are useless. Some of the movies they rave about are as interesting as a piece of plywood. The greatest showman is also loved by children and adults, which is rare for a movie these days. I only had a couple issues with the movie. First, the casting of Michelle Williams, she was not a good fit to play Jackman's wife. She's a bit young for him, which aged Hugh Jackman a bit. Also, Zak Efron's character and storyline did not fit well into the movie and seemed to be an attempt to add more depth to the story, which it did not. However, the songs, the dancing, the eclectic cast, and the sweet wholesome story made for an incredible film that left me wanting more. It may not have received the awards and critical acclaim it deserved, but it is still a classic that will be enjoyed by many for generations to come.
