Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"While Cyrus's droll performance (Miley's not Billy Ray's) deserves better material, this is still amply entertaining."
‑ David Jenkins, Time Out
"Aside from a few cameos and a big benefit concert to save her hometown from evil land developers, there's nothing really that makes the movie stand out from the TV show."
‑ Ben Lyons, At the Movies
"Basically super-sizes the formula of the successful television series for a Hannah-hungry audience of multiplex moppets."
‑ Neil Pond, American Profile
"Hannah Montana: The Movie isn't exactly high art, but that's not really the point, is it?"
‑ Sonny Bunch, Washington Times
"The film is sweet and innocent, just as one might expect. While not horrible, I can't heap praise on it either."
‑ Ryan Cracknell, Movie Views
"Cyrus, as always, is a professional charmer (it's hard to resist when she leads a hip-hop hoedown), and the crusty folkiness of Billy Ray Cyrus as her real-life dad is as welcome as ever."
‑ Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly
"Thin as a flip-flop and as complicated as a scrunchy, the plot is barely enough for half a movie. At the 45-minute point, things are pretty much wrapped up."
‑ Kyle Smith, New York Post
"...More bittersweet, even melancholy, than it has any right to be."
‑ Bill Chambers, Film Freak Central
"As a fan film, Hannah Montana: The Movie rates a 7 or 8 out of 10, but if you judge it straight-up it's probably closer to a 6."
‑ James Plath, Movie Metropolis
"...Hannah Montana: The Movie, its light and empty, cotton candy made out of sugar substitute, not the real sweet deal."
‑ Bill Gibron, PopMatters
"The bottom line is that I don't think you are going to care."
‑ Ben Mankiewicz, At the Movies
"The rest of the time it's up to Cyrus to keep things light, and her undeniable charisma radiates from the big screen as strongly as it does on the small one."
‑ Catherine Dawson March, Globe and Mail
"Best approached as a test as to whether Cyrus has a future career once the hype inevitably blows out. And the answer is..."
‑ Michael Dequina, TheMovieReport.com
"A tweener-mesmerizing mix of music-induced mass hysteria coupled with some homespun cordiality courtesy of a colorful collection of harmless hicks."
‑ Kam Williams, Sly Fox
"It's predictable, it's overacted, it's little more than a longer version of the TV show -- and it's a guaranteed hit among loyal fans of the fictional pop star."
‑ Mike Scott, Times-Picayune
