Consensus: While youthful Miley fans won't complain, Hannah Montana the Movie is little more than a formulaic Disney Channel episode stretched thin.

Time Out

While Cyrus's droll performance (Miley's not Billy Ray's) deserves better material, this is still amply entertaining.

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.

Critic's Notebook

It's true that legions of fans won't likely find the reality traumatizing once they are old enough to finally grasp it. Nevertheless, the film is hypocritical in the moral lesson it attempts to impart.

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.

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.

The bottom line is that I don't think you are going to care.

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.

Basically super-sizes the formula of the successful television series for a Hannah-hungry audience of multiplex moppets.

I really dislike Hannah Montanna, I dislike Miley Cyrus as she's been made into something she's not (an idol and a brilliant singer/actress). I really… More

Surprisingly, it was better than what I had anticipated. It was somewhat interesting and kept me watching, however it seemed unrealistic, especially at the end.… More
