The Greatest Showman is a jolly good movie for the whole family during this Christmas season. The songs were awesome, and that comes as no surprise since the music was done by the same team that gave us La La Land. I think the sound track is going to end up in a lot of stockings this year. The musical number between Zac Efron and Zendaya alone is worth the price of admission, but the song, This Is Me, belted out by the ‘Bearded Lady’ (Lettie Lutz), will leave you breathless.
The obvious plot of the movie – that all God’s children are perfect – certainly resonates for the holidays.
About The Peetimes: There were so many great songs in this film, and in between the musical numbers was some pretty good dialog, making good Peetimes difficult to find. I’ve designated the 1st Peetime as an ’emergency’, because half way into the break we hear Jenny Lind (Rebecca Ferguson) sing. So if you don’t want to miss the 1st half of her performance, I suggest you wait for the 2nd Peetime.
There are no extra scenes during, or after, the end credits of The Greatest Showman. (What we mean by Anything Extra.)
Rated (PG) for thematic elements including a brawl
