Foul-mouthed mutant mercenary Wade Wilson (AKA. Deadpool), brings together a team of fellow mutant rogues to protect a young boy with supernatural abilities from the brutal, time-traveling cyborg, Cable.
Orphaned, penniless but ambitious and with a mind crammed with imagination and fresh ideas, the American Phineas Taylor Barnum will always be remembered as the man with the gift to effortlessly blur the line between reality and fiction. Thirsty for innovation and hungry for success, the son of a tailor will manage to open a wax museum but will soon shift focus to the unique and peculiar, introducing extraordinary, never-seen-before live acts on the circus stage. Some will call Barnum's wide collection of oddities, a freak show; however, when the obsessed showman gambles everything on the opera singer Jenny Lind to appeal to a high-brow audience, he will somehow lose sight of the most important aspect of his life: his family. Will Barnum risk it all to be accepted?Written by
P.T. Barnum was born in Bethel, CT, and lived Bridgeport until he died at 80. He is buried at Mt. Grove Cemetery in Bridgeport. Tom Thumb was a lifelong resident of Bridgeport. See more »
General Tom Thumb, real name Charles Sherwood Stratton, was only four years old when Barnum hired him. Not twenty-two as the movie claims. Also the movie fails to point out that Stratton and Barnum were actually related (They were distant cousins.). See more »
No one ever made a difference by being like everyone else.

This is possibly one of the best films I have ever seen in this genre.
From the start to finish, I felt that there was some inaudible and invisible metronome setting the overall pace of the film, a consistent rhythm within many rhythms, if that makes sense. Everything about this film had perfect timing. Editing was seamless. Attention to detail was mind blowing, costumes outstanding. Special effects... whoa. Acting was flawless. I really can't find anything to criticize.
To summarize in a sentence, first class family entertainment.
