The Greatest Showman {Movie Review}

Yes, I’m still on hiatus.

But this movie is just too good to pass up! And yes, I finally watched this amazing movie. Without further ado, The Greatest Showman, ladies and gentlemen!


yeah yeah… it came out last year. But I’m a slow watcher, kay? I stay outdated

Inspired by the imagination of P. T. Barnum, The Greatest Showman is an original musical that celebrates the birth of show business & tells of a visionary who rose from nothing to create a spectacle that became a worldwide sensation.





Cast: Hugh Jackman ( ❀ ), Zac Efron, Zendaya, Michelle Williams, Rebecca Ferguson

Overall rating: 5/5 stars

The Review

Plot/flow of the movie: The plot was really good. I think it went a little bit fast, though. At first I didn’t really like how he was promoting the people in his circus and showing them to the world just to make money, but then I realized it was giving those people a family and a place to be themselves. I also liked it how the people in the circus weren’t only there because of how they looked (like Lettie), but also their backround; where they come from, and who their family is (like Anne Wheeler). I just aaaaaah love this movie so much. *gushes over how awesome it is*

Characters & dialogue: I loved them SO much. They were just AMAZING. I loved their dialogue; it was so inspiring and encouraging (especially Charity Barnum’s dialogue). Charity never complained, and she is so supportive of her husband, and soooo sweet. My favorite characters were Charity Barnum and Phillip Carlyle. Phillip is so sweet and he’s an AMAZING singer. And of course Hugh Jackman was awesome as always! I loved his character; especially his Dad role. His two little girls were just precious as well.

And even though that critic guy didn’t like Barnum’s show, I liked how he still played a bigger role in the movie and was kind of like a help to Barnum in a way.

Music: Obviously I have to add music in, since this is a musical after all.

Come Alive

A Million Dreams

The Other Side

Rewrite The Stars

Never Enough

This is Me

Tightrope (this song is too underrated. It’s beautiful!)

From Now On

Greatest Show

The music was probably the best part of the movie! I’m learning them on piano now. πŸ˜‰ The lyrics of the songs are so beautiful.


Overall, this movie is a must watch if you haven’t watched it already. I love the message it sends, the dialogue, the characters, the acting is amazing, the music, everything about it, and just to show you how superb it is, I watched it twice, two days in a row! πŸ˜€


And that is the end of my very first movie review! πŸ™‚ I hope you enjoyed it!

I also just realized I still haven’t posted that awards post. πŸ˜› I guess I’ll have to do that soon. :/ πŸ˜‰ Sorry to the people who tagged me and I haven’t done the tags yet!!

  1. Yes, yes, and yes! Loved The Greatest Showman!! I did a review on it yesterday, and I’m like, “I’m a year behind, but I don’t care!” Lol. I watched it last year, but I’ve been offline from blogging for a few months πŸ˜“ I’m not typically one for musicals, but this was beautiful. Love the soundtrack.

  2. I had high aspirations for the movie but for me, it didn’t deliver fully. I found the characters too shallow and the story-telling was too hasty. The songs were great, though. It could be a different perspective from a different age group. Just my two cents, though.

  3. I agree! I love the soundtrack of this movie! I was also homeschooled growing up and I’m a Christian, too. My church back in my hometown recently did a message about The Greatest Showman (Okay, I know it sounds weird, but hand in there) and the pastor talked about how P.T. Barnum kept chasing fame and fortune and as a result, ruined his life! That, the happiest he found himself was when he didn’t have much, but was with his family, and found happiness in the mundane! I just thought I’d share! Also, it looks like we have similar interests! If you want, come check out my blog! I’m a few years older than you, but I’m kind of on the other side of homeschooling (the employed, married life). Anyway, I’m so excited I found your blog!

  4. My friends and I are having a movie night since one of them owns it, and I’m very excited since I haven’t seen it yet! πŸ˜€ Another of my friends who saw it decided to show me all. Of. The Songs. Therefore, my brain has decided to play ALL OF THEM. ON REPEAT. ARGH. XD Not that they’re not amazing, of course. πŸ˜‰ I think my favorite is probably The Greatest Show, Rewrite the Stars, This is Me, and Tightrope. Yes, I know that that’s a lot. XD Though, Tightrope is currently stuck in my head, so I’m considerably less fond of it right now. -_-
