My wife and I just saw The Greatest Showman and Hugh Jackman does indeed do a very good job portraying P.T. Barnum. I was expecting the character to be a flamboyant huckster and hustler but Jackman played him as an enterprising businessman who just "gives the people what they want." The musical numbers were a bit overwhelming, though, and there were too many of them. Every five minutes, someone broke out in song. The numbers with Zac Efron and Zendaya Coleman, for obvious reasons, came across as scenes from a circus-themed High School Musical. And the movie was overly preachy. Many of the songs and much of the dialogue dealt with the importance of accepting others who are different. I give The Greatest Showman a 9.
