The Sunday Times

Cosmo Landesman

Yes, the film slips into American schmaltz at times, but it’s really a thing of wonder — an infectious and irresistible fantasy that all the family can enjoy.

Total Film

Neil Smith

With its kid-friendly mix of tunes and chaste romance, this is sure to leave its target demographic grinning widely. Director Chelsom, meanwhile, has a giggle poking gentle fun at the slender conceit on which Cyrus’ celebrity is built.

Variety

Lael Loewenstein

Widely accessible even to neophytes, the G-rated pic is innocuous fare that should score big with tween girls, as well as those parents seeking age-appropriate role models for their daughters.

The Independent

John Walsh

This Disney film is a hand-tooled, eight-cylinder charm offensive: the landscape is ravishingly shot, the songs are cute and the plot moves from slapstick to romance at a cracking pace. Your 13-year-old daughter will utterly love it.

The po-faced lectures about the importance of family life are hard to take from a Disney merchandising juggernaut, too.

Time Out

David Jenkins

While Cyrus’s droll performance (Miley’s not Billy Ray’s) deserves better material, this is still amply entertaining.

Parents are likely to find it tiresomely naive stuff.

If you like your corn served sweet and sentimental, this big-screen musical spin-off is just what the doctor ordered.

Scotland on Sunday

Siobhan Synnot

A wholesome perpetual motion machine of sappy warbling and life lessons, Hannah Montana is a big NutraSweet marshmallow of cheerfulness, with dialogue that makes High School Musical sound like Greek tragedy.

it’s all country singalongs, cute cowboys and lessons from grandma.

Empire Magazine

Anna Smith

There’s a predictable plot, a few catchy songs and a shoe fight with Tyra Banks. In short: lazy but functional tween fare.

Allan Hunter

Even Elvis Presley movies had better plots than this feeble effort... Completely predictable, sickeningly sentimental and definitely limited in its appeal to diehard fans only.

As a middle-aged male, I am of course more at home seated in the prostate clinic waiting room than in the audience for the new Hannah Montana movie. Anyway, here I am, bringing to this frothy film the same instinctive empathy and understanding that an Inuk might have on watching the Roulette channel... This parent-child love story, glancingly expressed through the potent medium of country music, often had me wondering if anyone in the cinema had a number for Tennessee social services.

Holl Grigg-Spall

At 16 Britney was a ball of goofiness, cuteness, flirtation and sexuality - her behaviour a string of hyperactive ticks and quirks, with that hint of crazy we'd see again as she was stretchered out of her Hollywood mansion and into a hospital. Throughout Hannah Montana: The Movie Miley Cyrus has that exact same wild-eyed look.

The Financial Times

Martin Hoyle

...pubescent girls who adore it will scarcely notice the charmlessness of star Miley Cyrus, her face falling naturally into grumpiness, her singing best described as Sprechgesang, but a walking advertisement for the US dental industry.

The Daily Mail

Chris Tookey

The comedy is crude and the slapstick laboured. Compared with this, Disney's High School Musical 3 had the sophistication of Singin' In The Rain.
