Overall good messages of belonging, honesty, and loyalty. Some of these lessons P.T. had to learn the hard way, but learn them he did. For example, though he lied sometimes, those lies eventually caught up with him. We appreciated his confession of pride to his wife, "I wanted to be more than I was." Song messages good within the context of the story. Some of those words, though, in other contexts would be dangerously self-deceiving. The movie contained slight scenes of violence, tastefully played so appropriate still for young children perhaps, and a few bad words that were unnecessary. Our family (ages 9 to 48) gives it four stars.

It doesn't matter that the movie is not the real life story of P.T.Barnum. The only thing that matters is the message of love, belonging and acceptance that comes with it. I watched it 10 times ( I'm not kidding) and never did I feel that it was enough. Hugh Jackman, Zac Efron, Zendaya, Keala Seattle all did a wonderful job establishing a much needed message for our times. I would give it five thousand stars if I could.
