A beautifully done movie! The lighting was fantastic, the costume design beautiful and the sets were gorgeous, so much hard work went into this movie and it really shows through out! I loved the musical numbers so much I bought the soundtrack! I would highly recommend it to anyone and everyone!

Can't agree less with the Squirrel's comment. I thought this musical was fabulous, story and music was amazing, even if the music was modern, the message contained within the scenes was fantastic. Hugh Jackman never fails to impress me, he is the consummate actor due to the fact he can sing and dance. Kudos to the 2 songwriters who came up with the tunes, wow, I understood every word and got the message. It was about tolerance, family, comaraderie and humanity, just wonderful. Have watched it twice now and will watch it again.

This is one of the best musicals I'd seen. The music, songs, dancing, & choreography are incredible. Besides being a biography and love story, this movie is about humanity and is so relevant today. I can't help seeing the hatred in the mob reminding me of how our nation is so divided now. Hating people being different back then is still happening now.

Is it possible to get movies via digital stream for a rental like Ebooks?

An over-produced bore. Costuming, production design, and art direction were wonderful. First rate. However, the story is little more than a formulaic poor boy makes it big kind of thing. As a biography, it's a failure. There's barely any depth to the man or his story. The acting was fair and the direction okay but where I found this musical lacking was its music and musical numbers. They were all wrong for this period-piece movie. Far too contemporary, bordering on the ridiculous.

A lot of glitter and fluff without much substance.

Sir, people don't wanna admit it... but they are fascinated with the exotic and the... is why we stare at it.

Why would a bank loan us 10,000 dollars?

"Shame of the city". The protests amend Mr. Barnum's reputation... as a previewer of the offensive and indecent.

Now, I know that sounds like Barnum humbug... but I have a 100 bottles of good champagne on ice that says that this is not just another sideshow novelty.

You are the American. I believe I might have heard of you.
-Oh well, If you've heard of me all the way over here, I must have been doing something right.
That, or something very wrong.

I believe those are the words of a scoundrel, Mr Barnum.

I never liked your show. But I always thought the people did.
-They do.
Mind you, I wouldn't call it art.
-Of course not.
But... Putting folks of all kinds on stage. All colors, shapes, sizes. Presenting them as equals. Another critic might have even called it 'a celebration of humanity'.

You don't need everyone to love you, Phin. Just a few good people.

Tell me, Mr. Barnum, does it bother you that everything you're selling is fake?
-Do these smiles seem fake? It doesn't matter where they come from. The joy is real.
So you are a philanthropist?
-Well, hyperbole isn't the worst crime. Men suffer more from imagining too little than too much.
The creed of a true fraud.
-Mr Bennett, when was the last time you smiled? Or had a good laugh? A real laugh. A theater critic who can't find joy in the theater. Now who is the fraud?

P.T. Barnum: It looks like you have a knack for show business.
Phillip: Show business? I've never heard of it.
P.T. Barnum: That's because I just invented it.
