Critics Slam Miley Cyrus, The Last Song

by at . Comments

On more than one recent occasion, Miley Cyrus has said she plans on taking a hiatus from music to focus on acting.

Let's hope her future efforts on the big screen go better than The Last Song.

A majority of film critics have come down hard on the movie, specifically citing Miley's acting as "stiff" and "unconvincing." Here are excerpts of what they had to say about the flick, which opens this week...

A more convincing star could make this a degree more tolerable, although in Cyrus's defense not much more. Allegedly, this is the film in which Cyrus gets all, like, dramatic. If by 'dramatic' one means pouty, sullen, and cute, then OK. -- The Boston Globe

Acting, for the moment at least, seems almost entirely beyond her... she pouts, slouches, storms in and out of rooms and occasionally cracks a snaggle-toothed smile, but most of the time she seems to be mugging for the camera, play-acting rather than exploring the motives and feelings of her character. -- The New York Times

Miley Cyrus met boyfriend Liam Hemsworth on the set of The Last Song. That's about the only positive thing to come from the movie.

It's the worst of both worlds as Disney cash cow Miley Cyrus makes the most dubious "dramatic" debut of any singer since Britney Spears. -- The New York Post

As likable a performer as she is, Cyrus simply can't act. Even Sparks' formulaic material proves too challenging for her. -- The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

All the obvious elements combine to manipulate the audience into a weepy time at the movies - again. -- USA Today

Will you go see The Last Song? If so, write in and share your opinion on the movie... and/or your advice as to what field Miley might wish to consider next.

I loved this book and liked and own the movie. But it is true that mileys acting was unbelievable and awkward. All the actors did a great job. Mileys song is good tho. Re boy who played jona was awesome. Wow I think either u have it or u don't.

Mileys acting was poor. I wish they would have cast the movie better. Liam was good (hot). The movie had such potential. Why they chose her is beyond me.

The Last Song is a dramatic movie type which was I supposed to liked but when I saw that Miley is gonna be the lead girl in this movie I have a thought that this movie is gonna be suck! And yes, I was right,I try to watch it but I get bored cause Miley didn't pull it together as her character in the movie.I didn't get the emotion. So one thing for sure, it could be great movie if it's not Miley Cyrus.

I think this movie was awesome. Miley cyrus did in fact make a good actress. I think the slouching and stuff was apart of the role. I love this movie she did an awesome job(: as for the little boy he did okay. I couldnt connect to him. He seemed more jokingly through the movie even i sad parts. I cried when everyone did but him.
