  • This is by far the best Starring ever

  • Zac Efron’s character (Bailey) was actually a real person. Zendaya’s, however is fictional

  • I watch this vid a lot of times but so not here for the talkie bits.

  • The entire movie i thought i was watching wolverine

  • M’Logan

  • Love Simon. Love Simon. Love Simon. Love Simon. Love Simon. Love Simon. Love Simon. Love Simon. Love Simon. Love Simon. Love Simon. Love Simon. Love Simon. Love Simon. Love Simon. Love Simon. Love Simon. Love Simon. Love Simon. Love Simon. Love Simon. Love Simon. Love Simon. Love Simon. Love Simon. Love Simon. Love Simon. Love Simon. Love Simon. Love Simon. Love Simon. Love Simon. Love Simon. Love Simon. Love Simon. Love Simon. Love Simon. Love Simon. Love Simon. Love Simon. Love Simon. Love Simon. Love Simon. Love Simon. Love Simon. Love Simon. Love Simon. Love Simon.

  • Actually Zendaya did most of her trapeze stunts.

  • Yo Zenday did her own stunts and the girl who played Jenny Lind wasn't lip sining normal I like these but some of the facts in this just arn't true and it's not that great sorry

  • At least all the animals in the movie are CGI 😅

  • Rewrite the Stars: 👌 “So all of your cash would be ours...”

  • That was awesome. Bravo!! Bravo!

  • Whats honest trailer

  • The greatest showman like 9870098 time

  • I honestly just wish they would’ve given all the characters fake names and just made it a cool circus movie.

  • Your Jenny Lind sounds better than the autotuned one in the film!

  • Wow almost like they never claimed it was historically accurate and they just wanted to entertain people 🤔

  • Somestimes honest trailers is better than the movie itself lolll i like that!!!

  • My favourite character was for sure the bartender

  • Honest trailer for Mama Mia?

  • pleaseeee do an Honest Trailer of I, Tonya

  • Dogman should've been there "the furry who took it too far!"

  • i heard Zandeya never had a body double in this movie, she did that all

  • Now I know why you should not watch Honest Trailers when deciding whether to watch a movie or not!!!

  • Do an honest trailer for The Sound of Music (1965)!!!!

  • This was hilarious!!!

  • Clearly you did not understand the subtext of this movie. It is clearly meant to be the first in the line of wolverine origins movies. He even forms a group of X men.

  • Old school musical that’s a classic 😂🤣

  • Wow, the lyrics in this were hilarious. Jerk du Soleil is pretty good, too. Moulin Scrooge would have worked too.

  • Hugh JazzHands🤣🤣🤣 I’m dying

  • Wait, but Zendaya did all of her own stunts and so did Zac.

  • Please do Karate Kid!!!

  • elephant never forgets 👏👏👏

  • Jerk du Soleil lmao

  • Young man Logan xD

  • I loved the movie but I also loved this trailer so

  • I love it when he sings during the trailers

  • I don’t care what critics say or how untrue it is. Both high school musical and Annie have RT scores in the 50s like this. It will be a classic.

  • [oh dear God, what is next] LMFAO

  • Btw: Zendaya actually did all her trapeze stunts. They did not use any body dubbles for her scenes. Other than that, although I trully loved the movies, this video was great xD

  • plz do storks

  • do Supernatural PLEASE

  • these songs are stuck in my head

  • Much better!

  • Real steel plsss

  • 🎩 M LOGAN


  • You are so good at singer

  • And then the owner of all the top hats XD

  • While knowing the history I am not going to tell my parents and my friends or their life would be ruined by hearing the real story behind P.T Barnum..not ever..their so happy and I was happy until I searched it...damn I was ruined..lol

  • ACTUALLY, Zendaya did all the tricks herself

  • Damn, the songs were parodied perfectly, it sounds like it was in the movie

  • Do Mamma Mia plzzz!

  • Out of all the great musicals they could have made into movies....they decide....to make this instead....

  • My favourite characters were Elsa and Old School Musical but really PT an elephant never forgets dodo dodo

  • I love those new songs 🙇😝😝 #NotP.T please do a Mean Girls trailer

  • This is my favorite HT review. Well done and thank you HT, was apprehensive because it was a great movie but you knocked it out of the park!

  • you should have added dogboy to the list and called him cheap chewbacca

  • honest trailer for Coraline!!

  • The Marvel version of American Horror Story

  • Please write full parodies for all the songs, I wanna hear them all.

  • The songs with the different lyrics were hilarious 😂

  • unfunny

  • This has to be the best god damn Honest Trailer ever! Nice job!

  • I'm so surprised you didn't do a sung version of A Million Dreams or The Other Side.

  • Bad lip reading

  • Help. My stomach....i...cant...

  • I agree with another poster... do Sing!

  • I legit thought that these were the songs for 5 seconds.

  • Ahahhahaha wtf

  • "The these two people didn't even exist song", Hahahahaha!

  • Well, I mean, 2 of the whales weren't his fault. They accidentally got boiled alive during that fire

  • Just saying P.T didn't actually have snobby parents, his dad was a designer and those were his clients. Charity had snobby parents, not PT. Zac Efron's character, Carlisle, however did have snobby parents

    • Seriously though this was the funniest honest trailer yet. Keep up the great work guys

  • The thing about these things is you can't take offence, you just have to enjoy it for what it is.

  • wakakakakakakakakakakaka

  • “Old school musical” Clap clap clap

  • When I first saw the trailer for this movie I thought it was about the guy starting a circus for his daughter or something

  • Oo if I may Zendaya did A LOT of her own stunts

  • I just come here waiting for a High School Musical joke

  • I wish you guys released the songs from the video digitally for download

  • Kind of glad I didn't see it now

  • This is how I felt about The Greatest Showman: Ok, so before I saw this movie all of my friends were talking about it and around me it was kinda overhyped. So, when I went into the theatre I sat down with my popcorn and my soda and I was 100% ready to see this amazing movie I had been waiting for. And you know what I got? A salad. A salad you may ask? This is what I mean by this: I was prepared for a three course meal that everyone was saying was amazing, but I only got one course, which was the little salad and maybe an iced tea. I mean, a salad isn't bad, but it isn't an AMAZING three course meal that I thought I would get. I mean I was ready for the steak and mashed potatoes, and the big slice of chocolate cake, but I only got a light salad. So was it terrible? No. But it wasn't a movie that grabbed me into the story like three course meal movies do. Ok sry about this prbly no one is seeing this comment or cares about my dumb opinion lol

  • I need a supernatural honest trailer

  • Actually not usually a body double. Zendaya did a crapload of her own stunts

  • I love this film and usually don't like parodies, but this one is pretty good

  • I hate how everybody keeps yelling at the ringleader that its all fake! And he admits its fake! Whats fake about it!?

  • Whoa, whoa, whoa...so this a musical about a guy from the past who grew up and wanted to make something of himself, so he grows up, takes every chance he can get, acheives his dream only to be brought down by an affair. Original.

    • I mean that doesn't sound very entertaining.

    • As to that point, he didn't actually have an affair. He became obsessed with the fame that the singer was bringing him, ignoring his family and other work. In the film the singer fell for him but was rejected; to get even, she kissed him right before a picture was taken of them so that the papers would run a story on the affair.

  • lol top hat enthusiast

  • Giving Jenny Lind a song called Never Enough is especially galling since she donated all of her profits from that tour to charity in real life. Just saying.


  • Young man Logan jesus christ =]]]

  • THANK YOU. I was so angry that the movie focused on this manipulative rich white man and his sad relationship drama (that he causes himself) instead of the diverse and oppressed circus people???

  • Give us complete honest covers PLSPLSPLS :D

  • "These characters didn't even exist song" Killed me 😂

  • Am I the only one who thought it was the great snowman honest trailer

  • Do a Sing Honest Trailer. Buster Moon is the Danny Ocean of that idol cast

  • I’m i the only one who sees a Hamilton in this entire story? Just switch up the time periods it’s the exact same thing.

  • Stunts

  • Zen days actually did her own stunys

  • Do love simon

  • This trailer movie reminds of Moulin Rouge , so I guess I'm thankful that Jenny Lind wasn't puking up blood all the time.
