When the FBI hires her to go undercover at a college sorority, Molly Morris (Miley Cyrus) must transform herself from a tough, streetwise private investigator to a refined, sophisticated university girl to help protect the daughter of a one-time Mobster. With several suspects on her list, Molly unexpectedly discovers that not everyone is who they appear to be, including herself. -- (C) Weinstein

Cyrus seems to be playing dress-up when she dons the biker gear that is supposedly her second skin. Not-especially-high high jinks ensue.
To keep up her cover, Miley Cyrus's private eye has to spout nonsense like 'Totes!' and 'Amazeballs!' while pretending to be an empty-headed ditz... when the story finally gets wrapped up, 'Amazeballs' will not be the word that comes to your lips.
Endeavoring to reveal more sides to Cyrus as she moves over to twentysomething pursuits, So Undercover isn't ambitious and brave enough to truly shake up her career in new and exciting ways.
A more convincing star could have saved this, although to be fair to Cyrus, she hasn't much to work with.
There's no sign as yet that the perky but otherwise unremarkable Ms Cyrus is going to find it easy graduating from teen star to grown-up actress.
So Undercover has a by-the-numbers script which cannibalises most of its ideas from other American college campus films.
A turkey that may serve a useful function in being the last nail in the coffin of Miley Cyrus's acting career.
Kelly Osbourne's peculiar turn as her sassy roommate doesn't up the fizz.
As Miley Cyrus vehicles go, this is entirely watchable fluff, enlivened by likeable performances and some decent one-liners.
You know something really bad has happened when the FBI are forced to call in Miley Cyrus.
Its target audience will lap it up...but the rest of us will be searching for deep cover.
