...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...
Hannah Montana: The Movie isn't exactly high art, but that's not really the point, is it?
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.
| Original Score: 6/10
A tweener-mesmerizing mix of music-induced mass hysteria coupled with some homespun cordiality courtesy of a colorful collection of harmless hicks.
| Original Score: 3/4
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.
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.

| Original Score: 3.5/5
A perpetual Disney identity crisis that involves a blonde wig, a prepubescent Vertigo-meets Jekyll and Hyde-meets High School Musical.
| Original Score: 2.5/5
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.
| Original Score: 4/5
Kevin Irwin - As cynical exercises in teen marketing go, it's all relatively painless and, whisper it, great fun at times.
| Original Score: 5/5
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.
