Not sure what the hullabaloo is about; I enjoyed it!
Trickiest part for me, I guess, is looking at Hugh and not seeing P.T. Barnum...and Rebecca and not seeing Jenny Lind!
Same problem with watching Crazy, Stupid, Love starring Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone and not seeing La La Land's Sebastian and Mia, am I right?
Frankly, it's the problem with nearly every great duo recast in film after film: Johnny Depp + Helena Bonham Carter, Humphrey Bogart + Bette Davis, Bradley Cooper + Jennifer Lawrence, Chris Evans + Scarlett Johansson, Drew Barrymore + Adam Sandler and, heck, for that matter even Ben Stiller + Owen Wilson, Matt Damon + Ben Affleck, Vince Vaughn + Jon Favreau, Al Pacino + Robert De Niro, Seth Rogen + James Franco, Matthew McConaughey + Woody Harrelson, and Paul Newman + Robert Redford!
Oh well, talent is talent; fun is fun; good is good.
Go get 'em, you two!!
