Hannah Montana: The Movie (U)
Friday 01 May 2009
Surprisingly entertaining, feature-length treatment of the smash-hit TV series, in which Miley Cyrus plays ordinary high-school student Miley Stewart, transformed by night into rock super-star Hannah.
Here Miley, living too extravagantly her Hannah life in LA, is hijacked by her papa (real-life pop Billy Ray Cyrus) and flown home to Tennessee. Cue horses, barnyard, grandma, bluegrass on porch, young cowboy admirer and local villain, whose "development" plans threaten unspoilt fields. This Disney film is a hand-tooled, eight-cylinder charm offensive: the landscape is ravishingly shot, the songs are cute and the plot moves from slapstick to romance at a cracking pace. Your 13-year-old daughter will utterly love it.
