    I’m glad that you got all the historical inaccuracies in there because that’s why I decided not to see it

    It's not fair to judge the enjoyment of a movie based on historical accuracy, that's the point of creativity; to take something whether that's from inspiration or your own imagination and make something wonderful from it. This movie left me leaving the cinema with a smile on my face and the feeling of wanting to dance. The plot was pretty average but the feeling you get from watching this movie is nothing but positive.

  • Miranda Melodie Miller
    Miranda Melodie Miller 11 hours ago

    If you ignore the fact that it's far from reality, it was actually quite enjoyable and I shed a few tears. Simply because the movie celebrates differences and it's difficult to grow up and love them. But, yeah. Historical seen he was absolute garbage and shouldn't be celebrated AT ALL.

    TheStockwell 15 hours ago

    This musical about P.T. Barnum starring Hugh Jackman wasn't historically accurate? You're kidding me! I enjoyed it because I thought it was the latest Ken Burns PBS documentary.
    Next, you'll be telling me "The Flintstones" wasn't a reality show depicting the joyful interactions between our Paleolithic ancestors and dinosaurs.

    Am I the only one who realised in order for the Beard chick to stop being an outcast she needed to shave? Like most of the men don't have beards so there is clearly equipment available.

  • Valentine Valentino

    I liked the movie (and still have some hangover weeks later) but NEVER GOT OFFENDED by this video. Why is everyone going crazy that it mentioned that it's not historically accurate? The video isn't bashing the movie, it's just being honest. Hello, it said "Honest Trailer".

    Now imagine if PT referred to the other dude who might use such initials.
    You know, the one who sits in an office with no corners and sends messages with a limited character count.

    P.t Barnum was a real person in the early 1920s I think apparently he hung an elephant by a crane.
    But I Absolutely love this movie and how it's made

    I know this is a joke and it's funny. But are people really mad they added love stories and affairs that didnt really happen. Did you all think Titanic was way out of line as well? Or did you not know Jack's character never really existed.

    Oh, she's gonna kill me if she reads this.

    Who cares if it’s historically accurate? It’s entertainment that’s supposed to teach kids to be accepting of themselves and others and their strengths! And honestly, if you’re actually interested in the true history go research it on your own. Plus, who can fault the writers from including Zac Effron in tight pants?

    Was Barnum any worse than anybody else back then, though? He may have owned “a” slave, but he also supported abolition.

    They should have parodied The Other Side: tvclip.biz/video/Wk008ADh4iY/video.html specifically 0:34 to 1:01
    Parody version:
    Oh ZaAc, isn't it okay, to keep a blaAck woman as a slave?
    She gives me, what I need. My money's worth more than her life.
    Come on just please don't tell my wife.
    So you can be a good dude,
    or you can be like me.
    Ain't in a cage, but these hairy freaks are, you see.
    Oh damn! Can't you see we won't get fined.
    Who cares how far we cross the line.
    Real version:
    Don't you wanna get away from the same old part you gotta play
    'Cause I got what you need, so come with me and take the ride
    It'll take you to the other side
    'Cause you can do like you do
    Or you can do like me
    Stay in the cage, or you'll finally take the key
    Oh, damn! Suddenly you're free to fly
    It'll take you to the other side
