Get ready to be dazzled by Disney's big-screen smash hit Hannah Montana the Movie, filled with laughs, adventure, family fun and fabulous music! Come along for the ride and see Hannah like never before as she returns to her roots and faces the most important decision of her life! When Miley Stewart (aka pop-star Hannah Montana) gets too caught up in the superstar celebrity lifestyle, her dad decides it's time for a total change of scenery. But sweet niblets! Miley must trade in all the glitz and glamour of Hollywood for some ol' blue jeans on the family farm in Tennessee, and question if she can be both Miley Stewart and Hannah Montana. With a little help from her friends and awesome guest stars Taylor Swift, Rascal Flatts and Vanessa Williams, will she figure out whether to choose Hannah or Miley? Hannah Montana the Movie is a heartfelt major motion picture perfect for the entire family.
It's easy to forget that superstars are real people, but when Hannah Montana (Miley Cyrus) shows signs of forgetting her roots as Miley Stewart, her father Robbie Ray (Billy Ray Cyrus) puts his foot down. Miley has always strived to live a relatively normal teenage life, but when late stage entrances, exclusive shopping trips that end in brawling catfights, and ditching friends and family in favor of Hannah appearances become commonplace, Robbie Ray whisks her away from a date at the New York Music Awards for a dose of hometown reality at her grandma's in Crowley Corners, Tenn. Unfortunately, she's followed by Oswald (Peter Gunn), a relentless reporter from Britain's Bon Chic Magazine. Miley's initial fury at being tricked into staying at Grandma's spurs her to commence operation Save Hannah Montana, but her bad attitude eventually gives way to resignation and then the beginnings of reconnection between Miley and her family. As the days progress, Miley glimpses her growing self-absorption, finds she's attracted to old elementary friend Travis (Lucas Till), realizes that her selfishness has negatively affected her dad's personal relationships, and is drawn into her grandma's fight against the commercialization of Crowley Corners. A boastful impulse leads to Miley being charged with bringing Hannah Montana to Crowley Corners for a benefit concert; when Miley's worlds collide onstage, she reveals her true identity and declares that Hannah Montana is no more. Can Miley's hometown possibly keep Miley's secret, silence the reporter, and convince Miley that she can have the best of both worlds, or is this the end of Hannah Montana? Well-known Hannah Montana songs, including "Best of Both Worlds" and "Let's Get Crazy" are featured in the film as well as the fun new song "Hoedown Throwdown" (complete with line dance instruction), the heartfelt "Butterfly Fly Away," and the inspirational "The Climb." More important than the great music is the film's wholesome message about staying true to oneself and one's family and friends. (Ages 7 and older) --Tami Horiuchi

The Blu-ray transfer is top shelf material, with a surprisingly good director's commentary track. There is also a fun featurette with Jason Earles and more music videos than you can shake a stick at.
If you've seen the Disney Channel series Hannah Montana, you kinda know what you're getting with this movie. Basically a lot of silliness about a pop star who no one seems to recognize if she takes off her blonde wig. Blonde she's Hannah; a little darker without the wig and she's Miley. The wig even fools people really close to her! Amazing.
While full of inconsistencies, recycled gags, cliché themes and common movie morale lessons, The Hannah Montana Movie is a pleasing, warm story that young children will enjoy...especially for those already fans of the TV series. The acting is fair at best and even a little tough to watch at times, but no one involved ever really set out to make an Oscar Award winning blockbuster here, right?
It was just really nice to cuddle up with my daughter (again and again...and again), appreciate the joy the movie was bringing her and listen to her sing along to the songs. Heck, I caught myself singing along with Back to Tennesse, Miley's Dad's song in the movie.
So if you have a little girl that's a fan of Miley Cyrus or the Disney series she stars in, The Hannah Montana movie will be enjoyed thoroughly. As for me, well...while not the best movie I've seen this year, I'm happy to sit through it with my little girl as many times going forward as she asks me to...and I hope it's a lot of times!
If you're down with HANNAH MONTANA - and, by you, I of course mean all the young girls under ten and their long-suffering parents - then you already know that the premise revolves around teenager Miley Stewart whose secret alter ego is pop star Hannah Montana. The thrust of the Disney sitcom series has always been Miley's striving to live a normal teenager's life and not allowing all the glitz and glamour of being Hannah go to her head. In HANNAH MONTANA - THE MOVIE, Miley finally gets too full of herself.
Accused of having "gone California," Miley is shanghaied to her Tennessee home by her father, in hopes that Miley will reconnect with what's really important in life. And, honestly, in a one-dimensional film like this, there's only so much breaking down you can do in discussing it. I think it's a safe bet that Miley'll get back to her countrified roots. There is, naturally, a childhood sweetheart grown into a straight talking teen cowboy, and, to me, the dude's got that Josh Harnett thing going on. He initially sees Miley as shallow. You know how that goes.
The question is how do you get Cali-based Hannah Montana into rustic Tennessee. And this is where the evil land developer comes in, and, of course, he plans on constructing a mall at a woodsy habitat called Crowley Meadows. So a fundraiser event is required to save Crowley Meadows. To round off the story, a sleaze tabloid reporter is scurrying around the backwoods, trying to get dirt on Hannah Montana.
The cool thing is, something does happen later on which transcends the film's television sitcom roots. Because up until that point, the story feels sort of old and predictable and I was thinking, "This could just as well be an extended episode of the show or maybe a television special." But I wasn't expecting the twist, and for five seconds I had that feeling that "Wow, they're really switching it up." But then that little girl speaks up and plonks us straight back into self-contained television sitcom reality. But it was good while it lasted.
Fans of Oliver, Jackson, and Lilly may get a wee peeved because they're not so much in the film. Lilly gets the most screen time; Oliver is only there at the start. I thought Billy Ray Cyrus was solid, and old Achy-Breaky even gets a shot at romance. But his best moments are when he's in a scene with his daughter. Guest stars include Vanessa Williams as Hannah's publicist, Tyra Banks as disgruntled shoe shopper Tyra Banks, and Taylor Swift who sings a song.
But it's all about Miley Cyrus. And that's as it should be. She carries the film, and I think enough of her to give this sucker four stars. Miley's performance lifts the film above its trite plot and the cheesy elements. And put me down as someone who prefers it when she sings as Miley rather than as Hannah. Hannah Montana's songs are pop lite stuff and eventually all sound the same to me. But the times when Miley Stewart was singing as herself, those were the songs I relished most: the energetic and catchy "Hoedown"; the sweet and tender duet with her dad, "Butterfly Fly Away"; and the powerful and soulful "The Climb," which I say is the best song Miley Cyrus has ever sung.
HANNAH MONTANA - THE MOVIE offers easy laughs, some good songs, a coming-of-age story, and a girl whose superstar status was something which I, frankly, initially believed to have been founded solely on the strength of the Disney machine. But I had it wrong. Miley Cyrus has real talent. She can act. And, for sure, she can belt out a tune. HANNAH MONTANA - THE MOVIE isn't for everyone, no. But, for those who dig this wholesome kind of shenanigans, this movie knocks it out of the park.
Boom boom clap... boom di clap di clap... But what the hell are niblets, anyway?
