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.


the movie was amazing! i cried and laughed and the little brother was made the movie haha but miley was really good i really enjoyed it! i think the critics are wrong! sooooo wrong!!!


I went and saw it for curiosity sake...I wasted my money. I have seen better movies, and acting, on The Lifetime Channel. She comes off as play acting and stiff, NOTHING natural about her acting abilities at all. Put it this way, she will never be the next child star turned into a Jodie Foster type caliber actress. And the younger Dakota Fanning can act circles around Miley Cyrus. I don't know if she really thinks she is capable of getting an Oscar someday, who knows, but unless you are born with that ability, she does not have that natural ease for acting that the greats have that make them Oscar winning actors and actresses. (Please no tween girls attack me, you probably still will, but whatever. i was just giving my honest opinion. You are still entitled to yours.)


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!


i have NOTHING against miley cyrus, really, im not trying to be mean but the acting wasn't good. AT ALL. but cut her some slack, the plot was predictable and stupid. Worst movie of the year so far. Sorry :P


Omg!!!!!!!!!!!!! Worst movie ever!!!!!!!! i had no choice but to watch it because the dragons one was sold out so me and my friend saw it. YEA SHE CANT ACT SHE SUCKS BIG TIME. BUT I DID LIKE THE STORY LINE THOUGH BUT I DO THINK THE MOVIE WAS A BIT SCKETCHY. THEY WERE MISSING PARTS TO IT. LIKE IT HAD HOLES IN IT .


the movie was alright, but ms. miley was HORRIBLE in it. she needs acting lessons asap. BUT, she IS laughing all the way to the bank-- horribly bad actress or not, so good for her on that. any of us would do the same thing given the chance to make the kind of money she is making right now.


way don't you what to be hannah anymore?i am going to miss you sorry for your lostwere were do you live and can you tale me your address i was crying in the movie wene he died and wane your brother was crying the funnyies part is was you said the b word


@jennieh! Learn how to talk properly. You will never receive a well paying job with grammar like that.




I saw the movie and honestly at the beginning I thought it was terrible. (Just like Mileys acting) There wasn't much to it. Than as the story began to unfold it became much better. (Just like Mileys acting) Sure Miley isnt the best actress, but she is still learning. Overall I think she did a good job. Hopefully she will do better in Wings.
