While youthful Miley fans won't complain, Hannah Montana the Movie is little more than a formulaic Disney Channel episode stretched thin.

Anxious to get Miley back to her roots, her manager/father (Billy Ray Cyrus), whisks her away to their hometown in Tennessee, where he hopes grandma

While Cyrus's droll performance (Miley's not Billy Ray's) deserves better material, this is still amply entertaining.

Cyrus, as always, is a professional charmer (it's hard to resist when she leads a hip-hop hoedown), and the crusty folkiness of Billy Ray Cyrus as her real-life dad is as welcome as ever.

Aside from a few cameos and a big benefit concert to save her hometown from evil land developers, there's nothing really that makes the movie stand out from the TV show.

Thin as a flip-flop and as complicated as a scrunchy, the plot is barely enough for half a movie. At the 45-minute point, things are pretty much wrapped up.

The rest of the time it's up to Cyrus to keep things light, and her undeniable charisma radiates from the big screen as strongly as it does on the small one.

Basically super-sizes the formula of the successful television series for a Hannah-hungry audience of multiplex moppets.

...More bittersweet, even melancholy, than it has any right to be.

Best approached as a test as to whether Cyrus has a future career once the hype inevitably blows out. And the answer is...

As a fan film, Hannah Montana: The Movie rates a 7 or 8 out of 10, but if you judge it straight-up it's probably closer to a 6.

A tweener-mesmerizing mix of music-induced mass hysteria coupled with some homespun cordiality courtesy of a colorful collection of harmless hicks.

The film is sweet and innocent, just as one might expect. While not horrible, I can't heap praise on it either.

...Hannah Montana: The Movie, its light and empty, cotton candy made out of sugar substitute, not the real sweet deal.

August 16, 2009 Full Review Source: PopMatters

It's predictable, it's overacted, it's little more than a longer version of the TV show -- and it's a guaranteed hit among loyal fans of the fictional pop star.

The way this movie ends is so wrong that it doesn't deserve a pass as frothy entertainment. Why? Because it's actively sending a bad message to kids. [Blu-ray]

You would think after all these decades of making these kinds of movies Disney would do a better job with this, but it really is terrible.

It's wholesome hokum, to be sure, but of a very high standard.

The perfect combination of old and new versions of the American Dream: country girl riding out into the misty wilderness by day, and teen pop phenomenon by night.

A perpetual Disney identity crisis that involves a blonde wig, a prepubescent Vertigo-meets Jekyll and Hyde-meets High School Musical.

Won't shake up the movie world, but it is a family film that's easy enough to like while overlooking the fact it sprouts corn and movie cliches.

Older viewers will find plenty to smile at, even if it is simply recognising that you would have absolutely loved this movie when you were twelve-years-old.

Fans will be ecstatic about Miley's cinematic adventure. For everybody else, the humour will be cheesy, the romance at a primary school level, but this light, nice movie is undeniably likeable all the same.

Kevin Irwin - As cynical exercises in teen marketing go, it's all relatively painless and, whisper it, great fun at times.

The film slips into American schmaltz at times, but it's really a thing of wonder - an infectious and irresistible fantasy that all the family can enjoy.

Audience Reviews for Hannah Montana: The Movie

I really dislike Hannah Montanna, I dislike Miley Cyrus as she's been made into something she's not (an idol and a brilliant singer/actress). I really hope she goes away as she's a really poor role model for children. Won't bother seeing this.

Even worse than the unoriginal, boring 3D concert film. If this one had used the 3D aspect, I would have given this a half a star (no point in 3D) and declared Miley Cyrus the real world Krusty the Clown--in a way that she wants to scam everybody in order to become wealthy.
