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.

The producers thus having their apple pie and eating it.

My own idea of hell on earth but, for girls of a certain age, this is more appealing than just about anything else on the planet.

There's a predictable plot, a few catchy songs and a shoe fight with Tyra Banks. In short: lazy but functional tween fare.

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

Remember where you were when you first saw the 'Hit Me Baby, One More Time' video? For just 102 minutes of your time now you'll be rewarded with a lifetime's-worth of satisfying star-watching.

You have to be true to yourself and your roots, particularly if you live a lie. As moral messages go, the one peddled by Hannah Montana the Movie could do with some fine-tuning.

This parent-child love story, glancingly expressed through the potent medium of country music, often had me wondering if anyone in the cinema had a number for Tennessee social services.

Blackpool's own Peter Chelsom gets stuck in behind the camera - or should that be stuck? At least this follow-your-heart pap throws out the odd stray zinger: "Fabulous news - Beyoncé has double pneumonia!"

You might be rather surprised at just how likeable the bubblegum teen romance of Hannah Montana: The Movie actually is. And this is due in no small part to the superior comic acting chops of amiable bow-legged songbird, Miley Cyrus.

A commercial product it may be, but there's a lot to like in this well-crafted Disney confection, which presents a positive role model who learns the value of family, friendship and the perils of losing that to fame and popularity.

Fans will love this bright if bland romp, but it lacks that crossover appeal to make it a guilty adult pleasure.

Extolling the virtues of honesty, decency, friendship and family while portraying capitalism as the root of all evil, this big-screen outing for Disney's latest pop princess is a wholesome treat for her legions of young fans.

With its kid-friendly mix of tunes and chaste romance, this is sure to leave its target demographic grinning widely.

Kids will love this, put adults might find this a bit too much.

It's all good, clean fun but bland, corny and forgettable, too.

Admittedly I'm not the target audience, but this heavy-handed tale of cute 'n' spunky young Miley getting back to her rural roots is tough to swallow.

Even primary school age children will have seen this "finding your true self" story before - and will also be familiar with the falling-off-ladders type of humour which dominates.

The film ends in infectious good-humour. It seems perfectly calculated for its intended market, unlike Wolverine.

This Disney film is a hand-tooled, eight-cylinder charm offensive: the landscape is ravishingly shot, the songs are cute and the plot moves from slapstick to romance at a cracking pace. Your 13-year-old daughter will utterly love it.
