  1. The bottom line here is that Cyrus is ghastly in The Last Song, bad not just in one or two ways, but in all kinds of ways.
  2. 25
    The Last Song, yet another maudlin remake of a Nicholas Sparks bestseller.
  3. 25
    Offers a taming-of-the-shrew scenario so relentlessly bland and old-fashioned it makes "Dear John," the Sparks adaptation from two months ago, look like "Last Tango In Paris."
  4. 30
    A movie that is as stuffed with bogus feeling and overwrought incident as a fast-food burrito.
  5. Years on the Hannah Montana TV series have not adequately prepared Miley Cyrus for screen acting.
  6. Sadly, The Last Song is badly out of tune with real filmmaking.
  7. 0
    The only tragedy you'll face is paying good money to this swill.
  8. The title, The Last Song, may be wishful thinking for some, but the best they can probably hope for is the close of the era of Hannah Montana movies.
  9. 0
    It's the worst of both worlds as Disney cash cow Miley Cyrus makes the most dubious "dramatic" debut of any singer since Britney Spears.
  10. 20
    Maybe I'm expecting too much of Cyrus. But The Last Song rests heavily on her alleged appeal, and I can't remember the last time I came across such a singularly charmless teenage performer. I hesitate to even use the word "actress."

And it tries to make you cry too hard. I give this movie 8%. Full Review »
