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.


nikki says: im not much for actors, and i am definetely not much for miley cyrus, as is appears on camera shes a slut, a hoe, and a skank. but no one knows the real miley, cameras just catch people at the wrong time. so no one can judge her from what magazines say. i didnt want to go see the last song when i found out miley cyrus was staring in the movie, but i went anyways and fell in love with it! i dont think anybody else could have done better for this part. ;)


I don't care how much you like Miley Cyrus: She simply is not a good actor.
They might have well plucked a random person off the streets to play this part.
Did you know that, at the time this movie was released, she had not even had any acting classes? Something's wrong with that. Save the roles for people who have REAL talent and put in REAL effort.


i went to see the last song and i thought it was amazing. it made me cry!!!!!
i loved it and im going to buy it when it comes out on dvd. a lot of my friends saw it more than once and they loved it too.
i think miley is really growing up and and showing people that she can get out of her disney channel everyday hannah montana life. i gotta admit shes made some mistakes. but thats part of life. shes living and learning. shes beautiful and very talented. and she wouldnt be in the show business if she wasnt talented. and she isnt a substitute mother. she is still just a teen. and she has to grow up sooner or later she isnt going to be 12 forever and she cant be hannah montana forever either. i think for her VERY FIRST MATURE role she did and amazing job!!!


It doesn't seem to matter what Miley does, the bashers are always there. Let me tell you guys, as a grandmother of 11, a college graduate, and high official of the company I work for, I think Miley is very talented and there seems to be alot of jealousy out there. What amazes me is the hatefulness, the critics report, but yet this young lady has done so well for herself and her family. Appears to me bashers and media critics who are so unfair, there are more fans than bashers out there. Good luck Miley, you are a very talented young lady in both singing and acting. By the way guys, when young ladies reach Mileys age and want to be that age, why should she have to hold on to the little girl, tween image that was portrayed in Hannah Montana? She has the right to be herself. The role model for someone kids is all we hear, parents raise your own child. You need to be the role model.


your so talented and you know to rock your good at singing you had a lot of fans and I'm one of theme.... have a nice day!!!!


hi my name, is nichole leach and i am from princetin tx 75407 at 10020 €llis rd and i was just want to now i want to see your movie


Well, i'm reading the book write's VERY good...i will probably end up seeing the movie at some point...ugh...but i simply cannot see miley cyrus acting as ronnie...even without me seeing it, it's superficial...envisioning miley cyrus as ronnie just ruins my whole concept of what she'd be like...yes, i get into my books...i know nicholas sparks wrote the book for her, but ronnie is nothing like her...i haven't been very happy with miley and her attitude as of late...frankly, i wouldn't be surprised if the movie is no good...luv the story anyway...i suggest that u read's 4 opinion of her is not getting any higher...i've lost respect over the years...if's getting lower...

April 10th, 2010 1:37 AM I didnt mind the movie.. it was tolerable
But seriously she cant act, nothing natural about the way she is on-screen. ...Plus the guys way too hot for her haha! ********** Too bad they are dating in real life! Great show. Don't be haters - worth the $$$ spent.


Loved it! I'm not a huge MILEY fan but this was a great movie. An all around good movie that had substance and not raunchy. Definite go see.


The movie was ok but if you if want the whole story READ THE BOOK!!!!!! SO MUCH BETTER. Really miley didnt do so bad but she could have done better.
