  1. The three parallel love stories of daughter and dad, girlfriend and boyfriend, sister and brother, are nicely handled. Robinson is a sympathetic director of actors, allowing almost everyone their dignity. For the most part, she keeps this emotionally charged story in the schmaltz-free zone.
  2. Yet another movie marketed with the line “From the author of The Notebook,” The Last Song is distinguished from other Nicholas Sparks adaptations because it’s the first screenplay the best-selling novelist has written himself.
  3. Takes a sharp turn for the better when Ronnie and a poor big rich boy played by Liam Hemsworth fall in love.
  4. The movie so deftly mixes sentimentality, romance and bathos in just the right measures that her fans and maybe new ones will enjoy the new Miley.
  5. One of those maudlin romantic melodramas you just can't warn folks off.
  6. 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.
  7. 0
    The only tragedy you'll face is paying good money to this swill.

    The Last Song is a great book adaptation. I think they could have chosen someone else besides Miley Cyrus, but she gives a solid performanceThe Last Song is a great book adaptation. I think they could have chosen someone else besides Miley Cyrus, but she gives a solid performance as rebellious teen Ronnie. Liam Hemsworth also performs well as Will, and thier romance definitely struck a chord with me. Similarly, Ronnie's relationship with her dad was very emotional for me to watch. I loved everything about this film and it will always be a favorite. Expand

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Miley Cyrus stars in this movie full of bad acting. Basically, she meets her father, feels like she's about to kill him when she discovers he has cancer and he never told her about a month later, she breaks up with her boyfriend because he's a chick magnet, her rage over her father grows excruciatingly, then all of a sudden her father dies and she suddenly feels sorry for him and decides to beat on her boyfriend in a PG rated fashion in her PMS-ic anger. Did I mention the acting is awful? Expand

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