Jim Judy quote iconI'll admit I wasn't expecting much from this film (mainly because the studio didn't show it for award voting purposes to any critics groups outside of the Globes), but I was blown away from beginning to end.

Tomatometer quote iconThe Greatest Showman tries hard to dazzle the audience with a Barnum-style sense of wonder -- but at the expense of its complex subject's far more intriguing real-life story.
