I never stopped smiling. For the parent of a handicapped child, this battle for acceptance and eventual overcoming of prejudice was one of the best feel-good movies produced in a long time. That's the whole point. Negative words regarding the finer points of Barnum's history, have missed the mark. Step outside the box and enjoy the ride that was intended. And if "This Is Me" doesn't really get to you, you're stone cold. Sad to see other reviews here that completely missed the point. Music was uplifting, movie was good for the soul.

A family favorite! One of the best feel good movies I have seen in a long time, its a wonderful story and through it I got goosebumps, laughed, smiled and cried happy tears. The music is so uplifting it makes you want to get up and dance! My family is a little obsessed with this movie and its soundtrack.The kids have watched and listened to the songs so much even my husband walks around singing them, hopefully we will see more movies like this come out in the future 😍

I LOVE THIS MOVIE! The trailer doesnt show much and if I was a buyer who didnt know much about this i wouldnt buy it, so I'm speaking to those people right now. This movie is all about chasing your dreams and also trying to still be a family. This movie i'd say is almost a musical. The music is AWESOME and everyone whos apart of it sings at one point in the movie. If your not sure if you should buy it or not, get it! You'll be glad you did! Its one of my go to movies for ANY occasion. As someone getting into circus sports, I feel energized everytime I watch this movie. It makes me want to go and practise my silks or lyra lol.
