The Press Reviews

  • The sawdust and sequins are laid on thick, the period flashbulbs pop and the champagne flows in The Greatest Showman, yet this ersatz portrait of American big-top tent impresario P.T. Barnum is all smoke and mirrors, no substance. Full Review

  • "The Greatest Showman," for all its celebratory razzle-dazzle, in the end feels curiously lacking in conviction. Full Review

  • An amusement park version of P.T. Barnum is fine, as far as that goes, but if you are going to aim for family-friendly fun, you need to get the fun part right. Full Review

  • Amazingly, a virtuoso Hugh Jackman as P.T. Barnum, spare-no-expense production values and a score by Oscar (La La Land) and Tony (Dear Evan Hansen) winners Ben Pasek and Justin Paul add up to a shrill blast of nothing. Full Review

  • An old-fashioned musical with a none-more-zeitgeisty songsheet, it may not be a flawless piece of storytelling, but it's a pretty decent show. Full Review

  • "The Greatest Showman" wants to give you a splashy good time, and does, and it's got something that takes you by surprise: a genuine romantic spirit. Full Review

  • By the end, I found myself exhausted by the idea of wonder, not to mention the film's notion that critics - those evil, fun-hating critics - are immune to it. Full Review
