    I didn't like the music at all, top 40 formulaic garbage for mindless listeners. Also, it really didn't fit well with the period.

    They should have decided on a century and stuck with it. It would have been fine as an 1800's piece or a 2000's piece but not a mix of both.

    The acting and emotion was great with a strong cast.

    The story wasn't great and the depiction of PT Barnum wasn't exactly accurate, but those aren't the reasons you watch a musical. The music is fun, even if it wasn't what I expected. As someone else pointed it, it's a strange mesh of 1800s aesthetic and modern music. But I actually thought that was fun and unique instead of being a bad thing. The choreography was a lot of fun to watch, too. The bar scene between Jackman and Efron and the trapeze scene with Efron and Zendaya were my two favorite parts of the movie. Sure, the story is predictable, but musicals aren't exactly known for having deep twist-and-turn plots. If you just relax and enjoy the spectacle - like you might do at a circus - it's a fun movie. 9 months 2 weeks ago
