    I’m doing a project for school about Pt Barnum and literally he was so horrible. Like incredibly racist, sexist, and exploited people for cash. He drank too much and he remarried super quickly after the wife portrayed in the movie died. Plus the woman was half his age lol. He never saw his children and missed the death of his two year old daughter. All around a bad guy. Good movie tho 😂

    I like how you managed to include the real P.T. Barnum history. This is him in an alternate universeee.

    Why didn't they just say it was someone else since most of this movie has very little to do with the real life character.

    Even though the real story is actually one of pain, suffering and cruelty, I still think that this adaptation of real life events is a beautiful story that was important to tell.

    Love this video! Shedding light on the fact that he was not a very good man while making it funny and lighthearted. P.T. Barnum is my great, great, great grandfather (my grandmother’s maiden name was Barnum), but whenever I tell people that, they are impressed and happy. I end up having to explain to them that this movie, while great, doesn’t she’d light on the side of Phineas my family knows. Before it closed, I went to the Wringling Brothers circus, and it was disappointing that the same ways Phineas and Bailey treated their animals was being administered. Not exactly proud to be related to him, but still pretty cool! Great job guys!

    I'm kinda disappointed in you guys for not saying the movie is historically inaccurate because real life isn't a musical. Kinda missed that.

  • John C John
    John C John 15 hours ago

    Boy you guys are hugging history way too much. If the movie was a truly fictional (not of P.T), then you guys would be stuck with High School Musical and Wolverine jokes.

    P.T. Flea from A Bug's Life is more accurate to the real life P.T. Barnum than this film's version xD.

  • Ricardo Pramana Suranta

    In serious terms, I still think this movie is a great one - especially for the message and the timely release :)

  • I don’t have a good name

    I went into the movie knowing nothing about it and loved it

  • Brooklynn Tomlin
    Brooklynn Tomlin 19 hours ago

    Ok. You’re just hating because you know you can never be as creative and amazing as that, I know it is not historically accurate, but it’s not like they wanted it to be 100% correct either. This Is Me is actually a very powerful song, and applies to my life in many ways, so it makes me really upset that you hated on that song.

  • Anna Mogilevski
    Anna Mogilevski Day ago

    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.

    as much as I love the greatest showman the parodies were the funniest thing

  • Miranda Melodie Miller

    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.

    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".

    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.

    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?
