The Last Song Reviews

Page 1 of 6
December 25, 2012
A predictable but sweet old-fashioned teen romance.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.0/5
April 21, 2012
Cyrus and Hemsworth... represent some kind of theoretical low for how terrible two romantic leads can be, together and separately.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/10
February 10, 2012
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.

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.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/5

How do I find thee ridiculous, The Last Song? Let me count the ways...[Blu-ray]
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4
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!
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5
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.

July 4, 2010
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 0/4
May 6, 2010
As Nicholas Sparks adaptations go, this one's both endearingly join-the-dots and surprisingly un-crass.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
May 6, 2010
Peddles banal truisms ("Love is fragile, and we're not always the best caretakers!") as if they're freshly minted.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
May 3, 2010
The Georgia locations are handsome and the people are pretty but any resemblance to real life is purely coincidental.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
May 3, 2010
Miley Cyrus makes a pathetic attempt to demonstrate her non-existent dramatic skills in this latest Nicholas Sparks-penned story.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5
April 30, 2010
The "last song"? In all conscience, that should really have been Billy Ray's Achy Breaky Heart in a brooding minor key. You'll feel the ache and hear the break.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5
April 30, 2010
Disney starlet Miley Cyrus becomes an early contender for worst actress of the decade in this painful attempt at a romantic tear-jerker.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5
April 30, 2010
While it's quite watchable, The Last Song doesn't feel like a film that's been made so much as assembled from standard teen movie clichés.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
