A story of life, death, transition, growth and above all, love of family, it is impossible not to be swept into the emotion and heart of The Last Song.
August 13, 2018
It has too many verses and dramatic flourishes, including more than a few eye-rolling embellishments, but The Last Song hits enough right notes to induce laughter, tears and fond feelings toward families and first loves.
December 25, 2012
A predictable but sweet old-fashioned teen romance.
April 21, 2012
Cyrus and Hemsworth... represent some kind of theoretical low for how terrible two romantic leads can be, together and separately.

It's an entire season's worth of a teen soap opera crammed into a feature film.
September 7, 2011
Here's the revelation: Miley Cyrus is a really interesting movie star in the making, with an intriguing echo-of-foghorn speaking voice, and a scuffed-up tomboyish physicality (in the Kristen Stewart mode) that sets her apart from daintier girls.
August 31, 2011
The latest in a growing number of weepy films based on Nicholas Sparks novels that don't come anywhere close to The Notebook.
April 4, 2011
This film is kind of a brilliant move on the part of the Cyrus Corporation.

How do I find thee ridiculous, The Last Song? Let me count the ways...[Blu-ray]
August 5, 2010
As a vehicle to extend the Miley Cyrus $$$billion$$$ dollar phenomenon of pre-teen fandom into a young adult starlet of seventeen, no production value was denied. But it ain't this year's discovery!
August 4, 2010
A melodrama that's aimed at teen girls, but the cinematography and performances make it palatable for others as well--if you don't mind someone toying with your emotions.

This is piano-key-tinkling melodrama that pulls out just about every cliché in the book.
May 16, 2010
An obvious bid for the teen queen to extend beyond her comfort zone only to then clearly show her limits and need for further development.
May 6, 2010
As Nicholas Sparks adaptations go, this one's both endearingly join-the-dots and surprisingly un-crass.
May 6, 2010
Novelist Sparks turns screenwriter with this film, which combines his usual themes (beaches, grieving teens, cancer) as a vehicle for Cyrus to put her childhood career behind her. It's exactly what we expect, but it's also fairly watchable.
May 6, 2010
Peddles banal truisms ("Love is fragile, and we're not always the best caretakers!") as if they're freshly minted.
May 3, 2010
The Georgia locations are handsome and the people are pretty but any resemblance to real life is purely coincidental.
May 3, 2010
Miley Cyrus makes a pathetic attempt to demonstrate her non-existent dramatic skills in this latest Nicholas Sparks-penned story.
