Hannah's music and Miley's romance are sure to wow tweens.

what parents need to know

Parents need to know that Miley Cyrus' legions of tween fans will be dying to see this big-screen comedy based on Disney's hit TV show. Like the small-screen version, the movie is upbeat and perfectly G rated ... if yet another marketing tool in Hannah's merchandise-rich world. The sexuality is completely innocent -- flirting, slow dancing, conversations about relationships, and three really short kisses -- and there's no language, drinking, or smoking. Expect frequent physical comedy (pratfalls, getting hit with a ball, bitten by an animal, etc.) and one scene in which Hannah and Tyra Banks fight over a pair of shoes.

what families can talk about

  • Families can talk about the movie's messages. What does Miley/Hannah learn about family and herself? Do you think she's a good role model? Why or why not? Does your answer change depending on whether she's being Hannah or Miley?
  • Why do you think Hannah is so popular? Do kids really love the show for itself, or are they caught up in the Miley/Hannah phenomenon and marketing messages? Do you think Cyrus will be as successful once she steps out from under her Hannah wig?

movie reviews from Rotten Tomatoes®

Top Critic Reviews

Rotten: 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.

- Ben Lyons, At the Movies, Monday, April 13, 2009

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

- Ben Mankiewicz, At the Movies, Monday, April 13, 2009

Rotten: ...More bittersweet, even melancholy, than it has any right to be.

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 hope she goes away as she's a really poor role model for children. Won't bother seeing this.
