The Last Song

What it's about:

Based on best-selling novelist Nicholas Sparks' (A Walk to Remember, The Notebook) latest novel, The Last Song is set in a small Southern beach town where an estranged father (Greg Kinnear) gets a chance to spend the summer with his reluctant teenage daughter (Miley Cyrus), who'd rather be home in New York. He tries to reconnect with her through the only thing they have in common- music - in a story of family, friendship, secrets and salvation, along with first loves and second chances.

What the critics thought:

The "last song"? In all conscience, that should really have been Billy Ray's Achy Breaky Heart in a brooding minor key. You'll feel the ache and hear the break.
- Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian


"So bad it makes The Notebook look like Casablanca."
- Peter Travers, Rolling Stone


"The predictable plot mechanics aren't what make it insufferable. The big problem is Miley Cyrus."
- Stephanie Zacharek, Salon.com


"It's the worst of both worlds as Disney cash cow Miley Cyrus makes the most dubious 'dramatic' debut of any singer since Britney Spears."
- Lou Lumenick, New York Post

A story about family, first loves, second chances and the moments in life that lead you back home.
