I have been looking forward to this day for a long time and it totally lived up to my expectations…..tonight, along with a theater full of kids (all ages, girls and boys) I saw the Hannah Montana Movie. Thanks so much to Abby for going with me so I was not the creepy old lady sitting by myself. I really enjoyed the movie and will probably see it again. Since my mind doesn’t work well in paragraph form, I will make a list of the things I loved and some I didn’t so much love.
Things I loved!!!
**Miley’s acting. Not once did I look at her and think, “there’s that sixteen year old with a skeezy 20 year old boyfriend,” or did I hear “It’s Miley” from The Soup. The whole movie I saw her as nothing more than Miley Stewart and cute as a button Hannah Montana, which didn’t always happen with the tv show.
**The songs. I liked the new stuff that was in the movie, and was happy to hear a new version of “Best of Both Worlds.”
**Jan from “The Office” was in it. I liked seeing her as something other than crazy trophy-weilding Jan. Although I was sad that she didn’t sing because apparently she has an amazing voice and I think she even has CDs or something like that.
**Travis. Oooooh Travis. He plays Miley’s little love interest, and wow, he is pretty fantastic (I can say that because he is 18 so it is not illegal……….kind of disturbing, but not illegal). The little girl behind me literally hyperventilated everytime he showed up on screen. Or maybe she was just making shrieking sounds too high for humans to hear.
**The end credits are awesome…..actually beyond awesome. Every movie needs to end with a dance number.
**I love how Rascal Flatts is randomly hanging out at Miley’s grandma’s house. Apparently in Tennessee famous country singers spend their time traveling from porch to porch singing their most well known songs.
Things I didn’t really love:
**Vanessa Williams’ character. I hate it when they cast “stars” in these types of movies that have absolutely nothing to do with the tv show. I’m pretty sure no one in the theater was there to see one of the stars of “Ugly Betty.”
**Spoiler Alert!! Miley and Lily’s fight gets resolved too quickly. Miley did something really horrible to Lily and after two weeks of not speaking Lily completely forgives her for the sole reason that she wouldn’t be in the movie if she didn’t.
**Speaking of that……where were Oliver and Rico?????? They are in the movie for 5 minutes total………and that includes three minutes of the end credits.
**Not enough Jackson!!!!!!!!!! He didn’t really do anything in the whole movie except fall down………but he does really know how to fall down.
All in all, I really loved the movie. It made me laugh, almost cry, and even dance around in my seat a tiny bit. The best part was being in a full theater where people clapped along with the songs, sang along to “The Climb,” and screamed like they were at a Hannah concert when the movie ended. When Travis finally admits that he has a crush on Miley, all the girls in the theater went “Awwwwwwww” (I was totally one of them). That is what makes a fantastic movie experience.
So if you even halfway enjoy the tv show, or like horses, or cute cowboys, go see this movie!!!
