More Info:
  • Carrie Rickey

    The three parallel love stories of daughter and dad, girlfriend and boyfriend, sister and brother, are nicely handled. Robinson is a sympathetic director of actors, allowing almost everyone their dignity. For the most part, she keeps this emotionally charged story in the schmaltz-free zone.

    And here's the revelation: Miley Cyrus is a really interesting movie star in the making, with an intriguing echo-of-foghorn speaking voice, and a scuffed-up tomboyish physicality (in the Kristen Stewart mode) that sets her apart from daintier girls in her celebrity class.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Roger Ebert

    I like Miley Cyrus. I like her in spite of the fact that she's been packaged within an inch of her life. I look forward to the day when she squirms loose from her handlers and records an album of classic songs, performed with the same sincerity as her godmother, Dolly Parton. I think it'll be a long, long time until she plays a movie character like the free-standing, engaging heroines of Ashley Judd, but I can wait.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Pete Hammond

    Yet another movie marketed with the line “From the author of The Notebook,” The Last Song is distinguished from other Nicholas Sparks adaptations because it’s the first screenplay the best-selling novelist has written himself.

    Boxoffice Magazine Full Review
  • Kirk Honeycutt

    The movie so deftly mixes sentimentality, romance and bathos in just the right measures that her fans and maybe new ones will enjoy the new Miley.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Michael Phillips

    The Last Song is primarily for teenagers looking for something disposable to cry about for a couple of hours, though I did find it a tad easier to take than "Dear John."

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Claudia Puig

    All the obvious elements combine to manipulate the audience into a weepy time at the movies -- again.

    USA Today Full Review
  • Dan Kois

    Hews closely enough to the Sparks pattern of romance and bathos that tears will flow as copiously in the audience as they do on screen.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Wesley Morris

    A more convincing star could make this a degree more tolerable, although in Cyrus’s defense not much more.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Liam Lacey

    Most of this is blandly palatable, at least for the first half. Cyrus, though she seldom strays from her two primary modes, pouting rebel or toothy girlfriend, has a winning on-screen presence, if only for her enjoyably abrasive edge in this deep well of pathos.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Roger Moore

    It’s not a great film, with some edge Sparks put in the novel left out of the script. But there’s real chemistry between the young lovers and an old fashioned virtue to the father-daughter, father-daughter’s boyfriend scenes.

    Orlando Sentinel Full Review
  • Melissa Anderson

    I can’t recall ever squirming as much as I did during Ronnie and Will’s first kiss; shiny, buff Hemsworth looks like he’s locking lips with an Andy Hardy–era Mickey Rooney in a wig.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Rob Nelson

    A soapy meller that transitions the young pop star from the Disney Channel to the bigscreen while giving girls what they'd seem to want and nothing more.

    Variety Full Review
  • Joe Morgenstern

    Takes a sharp turn for the better when Ronnie and a poor big rich boy played by Liam Hemsworth fall in love.

    Wall Street Journal Full Review
  • Elizabeth Weitzman

    So who was the movie really made for? Mostly, it seems, for Cyrus herself, who needed to take the first, hesitant step in another direction.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Keith Uhlich

    Maybe Douglas Sirk could have made something profound out of the pseudo-ennobling horsepucky. As is, The Last Song is what the crinkle-nosed Southern belle in all of us would resoundingly deem “Trash! Trash! Trash!”

    Time Out New York Full Review
  • Michael Ordona

    One of those maudlin romantic melodramas you just can't warn folks off.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Joe Williams

    Sadly, The Last Song is badly out of tune with real filmmaking.

    St. Louis Post-Dispatch Full Review
  • Marjorie Baumgarten

    The title, The Last Song, may be wishful thinking for some, but the best they can probably hope for is the close of the era of Hannah Montana movies.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • A.O. Scott

    A movie that is as stuffed with bogus feeling and overwrought incident as a fast-food burrito.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Andrea Gronvall

    Years on the Hannah Montana TV series have not adequately prepared Miley Cyrus for screen acting.

    Chicago Reader Full Review
  • Connie Ogle

    The Last Song, yet another maudlin remake of a Nicholas Sparks bestseller.

    Miami Herald Full Review
  • Mick LaSalle

    The bottom line here is that Cyrus is ghastly in The Last Song, bad not just in one or two ways, but in all kinds of ways.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Scott Tobias

    Offers a taming-of-the-shrew scenario so relentlessly bland and old-fashioned it makes "Dear John," the Sparks adaptation from two months ago, look like "Last Tango In Paris."

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Stephanie Zacharek

    Maybe I'm expecting too much of Cyrus. But The Last Song rests heavily on her alleged appeal, and I can't remember the last time I came across such a singularly charmless teenage performer. I hesitate to even use the word "actress." Full Review
  • Peter Travers

    The only tragedy you'll face is paying good money to this swill.

    Rolling Stone Full Review
  • Lou Lumenick

    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.
