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.


shes been doing well in acting if not she wont be as famous as she is now cuz she became famous due to hannah montana. if she isnt good at acting how do u explain her fame?


can any body take me as a student


I believe Miley has performed well. Admitting there was akward moments but she is a natural. It looks like everything that happened in that movie was happening to her, every single moves it is like Miley in real life and not a movie. Critics had very high expectations and gladly bash anybody that tries out. She will get better hoping that she won´t lose that natural thing about her, Good job Miley.


The little boy is such a good actor, every time he cried i cried!! He was the star of the movie!
Miley Cyrus in the other hand was horrible... If it was another actress in the movie, the movie could be a hit!


i have to agree with all of the critics cuz she really cant act ,she can sing but when she acts its really unconvencing i didnt watch the movie yet but i know she cant act from hannah montana and hm the movie sooo they were all right !!!!!!!!!!!!!!


fuk ya she a good acter all u bitches better take another look at the movie cuz it was great


i don't care what all u say i think she did great and if she couldn't act then why would she have done Hannah for so many years all i knows is shes not perfect but shes not that bad


I LOVE watching it ryt now..the kissing scene is soooooo intense...cumon guys, hu els could hav played a better snot nosed, bratty teen??


i am so unimpressed with this movie. i read the book and cried my eyes out, the book was so beautiful and it really hleped me seeing miley as the character in the book. i wish i would have never watched the movie because it ruined the whole experience for me. miley did not do a good job at all to me, i only liked 2 scenes, but they were very short. whoever directed the movie DEFINTALEY needs to be fired and they need to get a real directior with a TALENTEd ronnie. im not really a big fan of miley, but she ruined the movie for me and i did not shead a tear.


i do not neessarily adore miley, but i think she has done a tremendous job in the what if she cant act!atleast some good came out of it.a boyfriend.stop hatin.get your own.
