  1. Handles the strained daddy/daughter bond with sufficient lightness and laughs so that fathers won't mind accompanying their spawn.
  2. It's just as awesome as the tv show only bigger and prettier.
  3. There are sufficient pratfalls and Miley/Hannah quick-changes to satisfy the fans, while Cyrus retains that natural, unforced likability that made her a star in the first place.
  4. Cornpone caricatures abound (witness "Hoedown Throwdown," in which Miley sunnily urges us to "pop it, lock it, polka dot it"), but so do worthy messages about responsibility – to family, community, even Mother Earth.

    The only folks Montana is interested in pleasing are prepubescent girls and Disney stockholders.

    Perhaps the thing that most surprised me is how fingernails-on-blackboard awful the music is.

    The most shocking thing here is the fact that Peter Chelsom directed it. His 1995 movie, "Funny Bones," is a genuinely transgressive piece of dark comedy. I can't detect a trace of Chelsom in Hannah Montana, which means he won't have to wear a blonde wig to hide his shame.

    It was a fantastic movie. It just satisfies kids. The adults may not like it, but Miley's fans would definitely love it!
