Ladies and gents, this is the Hugh Jackman musical moment you’ve waited for…


An alternative take on the Barnum story, in a musical with that lovely Hugh Jackman.

  1. I loved Greatest Showman. Hugh Jackman shined as P.T. Barnum (I believe he makes a better Barnum than Jean Valjean). I loved the songs- that is key in a musical- you have to appreciate the songs in order to like or love a musical

  2. Many reviewers were tough with this movie, but I liked it – probably because I knew very little about Barnum. If we suspend belief and only enjoy the show, we come up with a nice fell-good movie with cool songs and a great Hugh Jackman – a skilled performer, as you said. And what else can we ask for?
    Great review!

  3. Ah, Hugh Jackman. The man is an icon. It sounds like the film could have definitely been better, though. I wonder if it would have been more interesting to have “Showman” be a one-man show type of thing, with Barnum’s life happening like it’s a three ring circus. Oh well. Great review, and thanks again for joining, Gill! I enjoyed reading this. 🙂

  4. I loved this film so much I paid to see it in the theater three times. The first time I had no idea it was a musical. One song in, I leaned over to my sister and told her I was buying the soundtrack. I’m so glad you had the chance to discover and enjoy it.
