Hannah Montana: The Movie

Jays Rating:
Actors: / /

Miley Cyrus continues her hit show from the Disney Channel in Hanna Montana: the Movie. Miley Stewart (Miley Cyrus) is a 16 year old girl who plays the part of a blond pop star named Hanna Montana. When the character of Hanna Montana begins taking over Miley’s life, her dad Robby Ray Stewart (Bobby Ray Cyrus) takes her back to the family farm in Crawley Corner, Tennessee for a reality check. Miley doesn’t want to go and she’s miserable – until she meets a young cowboy named Travis (Lucas Till) who works on the farm. They begin talking, riding horses and building a chicken coup together. Meanwhile, part of Crawley Corners is bought by developers to build shopping malls and offices. Miley’s friend Lily (Emily Osment) Mentions that she is a friend of Hanna Montana and said she will ask the pop star to come to Crawley Corners to do a benefit concert and save the town. (Sounds to me like one of the shows on the Brady Bunch.) There are no big surprises when Hanna Montana shows up and Miley has a date with Travis, sings in the concert and makes up with her dad for taking her back to Tennessee. I have to admit I was dreading going to this movie but since I’m blind I accidentally went into the wrong theater. (That’s my story and I’m sticking to it.) On the bright side, this film is cute, innocent and had some really catchy tunes. There were great cameos and songs by Taylor Swift and Rascal Flatts. Miley Cyrus has talent but is lacking in the acting and singing departments. She isn’t totally bad and her target audience of teen and preteen girls love her. On the other hand, this film has no real depth, none of the acting is that great, and the story is just lame and a little corny. (I’m not saying this movie is juvenile but I believe I lost 20 points of my I.Q during this hour and a half.) Of course, this film isn’t supposed to win any Academy Awards and I’m not the target audience. I’m happy that there are still clean family movies out there so I will bump it up to a C- rating..

This movie has been given a G rating by the MPAA

Although I am blind, I can appreciate a good movie as well as sighted individuals.
I rely more on a good story line than special effects.
