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.

Finally!! People are starting to see throught this girl. I have 3 girls at home who LOVE her. I always thought she was a girl with zero talent and I have never liked my girls watching Hannah Montana because she is rude to her father....I have recently stopped buying anything that has her name on it and I have told my girls that she's not a positive role model for them. Why does Disney continue to support this girl???

Well DUH!!!!! Come on, its MILEY CYRUS, the most overrated & untalented girl ever. What did you expect? That it would actually be GOOD? Ha Ha, yah right. Girlfriend cant sing to save her life and her voice sounds like a boy who smokes a pack a day. Thanks to millions of little girls who dont know any better, this girl is famous. UGH, Miley please go away. Hannah Montana is done, why cant you be? Spare us all. And get your ugly little sister to act her age.

This was probably one of the worst movies I have seen. No substance, and the only thing I was staring at was hot boy (Liam) with his shirt off, and Mileys "not so straight teeth" (seriously whats up with that she has all this money and she wont fix that damn tooth). The storyline was horrible, they fall in love probably in like 4 days. It was horrible and I thought I was going to enjoy it but it "SUCKED"!!! I felt terrible but I could not help but laugh everytime they zoomed into Miley's face. She maintained this horrible grouchy look throughout the movie, and I could not help but laugh. Well the only if I were anyone to go see this movie, would be to see Liam (THE HOT DUDE) without his shirt off. Let me tell you his is SEXY!!

She always has a ' robotic butch' look to her. Not very feminine.

i too cant wait to watch it....
but i kinda disagree with the critics....even tho i havent seen the movie yet, i've seen all the trailors and teasers....and i liked her acting in every one of them.....i know those critics do actually know what they r doing.....so they must be right....but anyway, miley will improve a lot for sure.....
right now i'm excited abt the movie....

I just saw it and I agree with everything the critics said. The best acting of the movie was the 10 year old boy who played Jonah. I have to say as a writer Sparks is amazing, especially with the book The Last Song. Not every book he writes needs to be made into a crappy film version (even though he was a write of the screenplay the movie still sucked and wasn't true to the book at all.) The Notebook and a Walk to Remember might be the only good ones he could produce
