The Last Song

From the writer of such romantic weepies as The Notebook, Nights in Rodanthe and Message in a Bottle, comes a tale of father-daughter bonding.

Seventeen-year-old Veronica 'Ronnie' Miller's (Miley Cyrus) life was turned upside-down when her parents divorced and her father (Greg Kinnear) moved from New York City to Tybee Island, Georgia. Three years later, she remains angry and alienated from her parents. Her mum (Kelly Preston) decides it would be best if Ronnie spent the summer with dad. Living a quiet beach life, dad – a former concert pianist and teacher – is living a quiet life in the beach town, immersed in creating a work of art that will become the centerpiece of a local church. Through their mutual love of music, Ronnie and her father learn to reconnect.

A soapy meller that transitions the young pop star from the Disney Channel to the bigscreen while giving girls what they'd seem to want and nothing more.

A movie that is as stuffed with bogus feeling and overwrought incident as a fast-food burrito.

I like Miley Cyrus. I like her in spite of the fact that she's been packaged within an inch of her life. I look forward to the day when she squirms loose from her handlers and records an album of classic songs, performed with the same sincerity as her godmother, Dolly Parton. I think it'll be a long, long time until she plays a movie character like the free-standing, engaging heroines of Ashley Judd, but I can wait.

The Last Song: Hannah Montana meets The Notebook? Ah, no. Take that all-too-easy-to-assume thought right out of your head. Okay, now put Miley Cyrus back in with a bitter scowl locked on her face and call her Ronnie.

One of those maudlin romantic melodramas you just can't warn folks off.

The movie so deftly mixes sentimentality, romance and bathos in just the right measures that her fans and maybe new ones will enjoy the new Miley.
