    Y'all really need to release a Honest Trailers soundtrack with all your "fixed" songs. Doesn't matter if half the songs aren't complete.

    No one gonna point out the age gap between Zac and Zendaya? I mean I guess 9 years isn’t to the point where it’s creepy, but while he was 18 in high school musical she was still 11. She probably grew up watching his movies and singing the songs from it and then they had a romantic relationship in this movie. Just felt weird for me

    Did anyone else not think Hugh Jackman's character was in love with the singer lady? I thought he was attracted to the stardom and talent and she had and how it would lift off his career.

    If they didn't attempt to base it on reality.... this would be a great movie. But if you are going to say it's based on historical events.... then .... base it on historical events? You can't just make it up, and say it was real.

    Zendaya actually learned to trapeze; the director wanted her to do as many of her stunts as possible so she actually did most of them and used a stunt double as little as possible

    As someone who works in a bookstore, I can verify a shocking amount of people get their history from Hollywood. They would absolutely need to be told in small words this film was inaccurate.

    Rebecca Ferguson (Jenny Lin) played Ilsa Faust on Mission impossible. So that's why they called her lip sync impossible

  • Eva Blume

    I really find it funny but some of the information is not right. Zendaya did the stunts herself and even more important the man who slaps him isn't P.T.'s father but his wife's.
    But despite that tge way you changed those song lyrics was hilarious😂
    I still love the movie 🤷‍♀️

    Can I just say something please? I am a huge fan of musicals but I never understood why everyone liked this movie so much. The music was okayish. It just felt like the same song and same scenes played over and over again. P.T. Barnum was a horrible person who exploited people for money. They also trashed poor Jenny Lind’s memory with depicting her as having an affair with Barnum. Sure, it was well acted, but let’s be honest. Why did you make a movie about this guy? Just my two cents.

  • Myles Hoglund
    Myles Hoglund 3 months ago

    I wasn’t really looking for historical accuracy going in but after seeing it, maybe a musical that looked at the darker side of Barnum would’ve been better. At least better than a bland and generic follow your dreams musical.

    Brilliant. Not that one would expect Hollywood to villanize a white, rich male when they, you know, turn him into a hero... But would pay for your version so hard!
