The whole premise of the film seems built around the idea that Barnum is creating something fun for the mass that stuffy critics just dont get because they dont know how to have fun and I think the makers of this film firmly believe thats what they are doing with this film.
Phinneas Taylor was the subject of a 1980 Broadway musical called Barnum which starred Jim Dale as Barnum and Glenn Close as his wife Charity that ran for 854 performances, but bringing the story to the big screen opened up the story to maximum effect.
