Consensus: As shamelessly manipulative as any Nicholas Sparks production, The Last Song is done no favors by its miscast and overmatched star, Miley Cyrus.

It's like Dante and Beatrice all over again, with the Georgia coast standing in for Paradise.

So bad it makes The Notebook look like Casablanca.

John Gholson

It's an entire season's worth of a teen soap opera crammed into a feature film.

A cheesy and boring romance, but a lot of woman will leave satisfied, not dragged along men.
