Review: Hannah Montana: The Movie

Never gets too heavy

VIDEO: The trailer for Hannah Montana: The Movie

Okay, I'll admit it: I'm a sucker for Miley Cyrus and her Hannah Montana TV persona. I went into her 3-D-movie concert skeptical and came out converted. Granted, I'm not the target market for such fluff, but I can tell you that Miley puts on a rousing show and never takes it too seriously.

In that paradigm lies her charm: she plays out every young girl's fantasy, living the life of a world-famous pop star while still having a normal life inside a rooted family. Certainly she's a better role model than many others in her line of work, and the big-screen version stretches her maturity.

Here, Miley returns to her Tennessee home town, but she has to call on Hannah to save it from becoming a strip mall. Along the way she falls for a farm boy who's unimpressed by her superstar alter ego. Directed by Peter Chelsom (Serendipity), the film never gets too heavy — at one point there's even a cat fight with Tyra Banks over, of all things, zebra shoes.
