Hannah Montana: The Movie
When it comes to Hannah Montana: The Movie, you can be certain of one thing: it won’t be getting no Oscars. It’s a movie length version of the hit tween TV show featuring Billy Ray Cyrus and his singing, dancing, acting daughter, whose TV and movie role is that of Miley Stewart, an average school girl, with an average life. A life, however that becomes transformed with the addiction of some makeup (self applied no less) and a blond wig. Like Stars in Their Eyes, Miley instantly gets transformed into her onscreen and real life alter ego, Hannah Montanna.
This ability to live in the best of both world however is beginning to have problems and Miley starts to find it hard to spend much time as her self, preferring the star stopping power of her alter ego. As her witnesses his daughters hange in attidude (and not for the better) father Billy Ray decides it’s time to take his daughter back to reality – and the family farm, for two weeks.
Miley spits the dummy, but soon realises the wisdom of her father, and predictability ensues.
As a general film, Hannah Montana is nothing to write home about, but for tweens and parents, it’s a little gem. Fans of the series will be squealing in delight, but more importantly, parents will welcome a wholesome movie where parental authority is a good thing, and the love and safely of the extended family is also recognised.
