The Last Song

2

Hannah Montana grows up...

Miley Cyrus’ transition from teenage starlet to adult actress begins with a soppy Nicholas Sparks-scripted romance that sees her as a stroppy New Yorker less than thrilled to be spending the summer with her estranged dad (Greg Kinnear) at his Georgia beach house.

The moment beefy jock Will (Liam Hemsworth) hoves into view, you know it’s only a matter of time before they’re frolicking in the surf and carving their initials on trees.

Clumsily incorporating Hannah Montana tropes (a dress-up montage, an aggravating kid brother) into a mawkish story of family reconciliation, Julie Anne Robinson’s film peddles banal truisms (“Love is fragile, and we’re not always the best caretakers!”) as if they’re freshly minted.

Miley, meanwhile, remains chastely virginal throughout, the movie’s prim timidity established early by Kinnear drawing a literal line in the sand to keep her and Hemsworth apart as they share a night on the dunes.

      It just annoys me that this film is the EXACT same plot as 'The Hannah Montana' movie. Miley has only been cast into this film because she has millions of 8-14 year olds that will follow her every move. I hope the next film she's in she ACTUALLY gets laid.

      The last song was a good average movie based on the selling novelist Nicholas Sparks, I haven't watched this movie, but this has a good clean script with a nice plot where a father gets a chance to spend the summer with his teenage daughter which was played by Miley Cyrus, it was a good work by the director Julie Anne. profitable niches

      I personally am nt seeing this as Hannah Montana "growing up" even though i did enjoy the movie itself. cheesy acting and a predictable plot line which, lets face it, thats what most of us want. vintage lamp shades
