'The Last Song' Miley's Mixed Reviews....
While the critics all agree she nailed the singing, it's her acting abilities that split the reviews.
"Acting, for the moment at least, seems almost entirely beyond her," writes New York Times film critic A.O. Scott, who adds, "Most of the time she seems to be mugging for the camera, play-acting rather than exploring the motives and feelings of her character." Glenn Whipp of the Associated Press shares the sentiment, claiming Miley's "dramatic abilities largely consist of two moves - scrunching up her face and staring wistfully into the distance." And the New York Post slammed the film, calling Cyrus' performance "the most dubious 'dramatic' debut of any singer since Britney Spears," insisting that Miley has "approximately 1 1/2 expressions."
On the other side of the fence is veteran critic Roger Ebert, a fan and champion of Miley's talent and charisma. "Her acting is unaffected, she can play serious, and she works easily with a pro like Greg Kinnear," Ebert writes, anticipating a future where Cyrus takes on "free-standing, engaging heroines." Roger Moore of the Orlando Sentinel picked up on the real-world romance between Miley and her handsome costar, writing "there's real chemistry between the young lovers." And Time Out New York claims, "Director Julie Anne Robinson does the best she can with what she has, coaxing competent performances from the two leads."
Is this silver-screen effort Miley's last song, or are there encores in the actress's future? One thing the critics agree on is Cyrus' work ethic and dedication to her craft. And no one can dispute that Miley Cyrus has legions of fans who will give her a positive review no matter what.
