The Last Song Blu-Ray Review

*heavy sigh*  Oh, Miley... Miley, Miley, Miley.... oh, Nicholas Sparks.... why?  Why?  Why would you ruin a perfectly good movie by putting someone in it who couldn't act her way out of a paper sack?  Now don't get me wrong, I think Miley is talented.  Just not at acting.  Hannah Montana was a comedy where everyone overacted in order to get laughs.  The Last Song is a serious movie that requires serious acting chops.

The premise of the movie is that Ronnie and her little brother must spend the summer at the beach with their dad (I love Greg Kinnear!)  Ronnie has never forgiven her dad for "walking out on the family" and has become a rebellious teen.  She gave up on the piano and a chance to go to Julliard all to sulk and be a bum.  When she meets a boy, he starts to bring joy to her life and therefore she starts breaking down her tough exterior and gets closer to her father.

Of course being a Nicholas Sparks movie, there are tears, anger, sadness, bad news, fights, all of the things you'd expect.  I of course did not shed a tear, but I'm sure other people will.  It was definitely a good movie, but would have been a million times better without Miley and her horrendous overbite.

Family Time Factor:  suitable for all ages, but small children won't be interested at all.

MOTR Grade: C+
