Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide
Nicholas Sparks doesn't hold back when it comes to sentimental love stories that bring middle-aged women and their daughters to tears, and The Last Song is no different. Based on his novel of the same name, the film explores the emotionally complex world of a teenage girl transitioning to womanhood during a summer of discovery. The trailer paints the film like a sappy summer romance that ends in heartbreak in an attempt to appeal to the teenage fan base that grew up with Hannah Montana, but in actuality the film is about the relationship between a daughter, her father, and a piano. Though The Last Song hits all the necessary emotional highs and lows, it's the in-between moments that suffer as a result, and at times you question whether the film was the right vehicle for a young actress who's still very green. Disney darling Miley Cyrus sheds her teenybopper persona to star as Veronica "Ronnie" Miller, a defiant teenager sent to live with her estranged father for the summer in a small Southern beach town. Ronnie resents him for leaving the family when she was young, and out of spite gives up a potential spot at the Juilliard School of Music. One day she meets hunky Will Liam Hemsworth, a beach-volleyball-playing Southerner with a privileged background. Ronnie resists his advances, but eventually gives in to his charms and begins a whirlwind romance that leads to the couple making plans to move to New York City. But when she discovers that her father has a terminal illness, Ronnie decides to reprioritize her life in an effort to resuscitate their relationship. Cyrus makes a good effort in her transition from preteen idol to serious actor in a hopeful attempt at making the young Hollywood list, and though she does a good job of invoking the kind of sentimentality necessary to translate the character from page to screen, her performance is at times inconsistent, and an attempt at an emotional connection with the audience falls flat -- which leads you to wonder if at this point in her acting career this role is just beyond her reach. There is, however, a definite connection between Ronnie and her father, Steve, played by Greg Kinnear, who has a knack for playing characters with heavy hearts who are more complex than they seem. Their relationship is solid and Kinnear's acting prowess helps anchor Cyrus. Director Julie Anne Robinson demonstrates restraint, and the film never veers too far into melodrama territory, perhaps in part due to the solid script by Nicholas Sparks and Jeff Van Wie. Even though this is Sparks' first time adapting his own novel, he does a great job of including all the necessary plot points and makes it work for a big-screen format. That's what makes The Last Song more sentimental than melodramatic, and by the end of the film even the most cynical of moviegoers might find themselves shedding a tear.

    A great Romance but longing to read the story

    The movie was good and had great inspiration I am sure. I would like to read the book and see how the book Differs from the movie, if it differs at all.

    LOVED IT! 5 STARS!

    I thought this was gonna be a not so great movie cause miley cyrus was in it but her style fit the character perfectly! Part of the movie was about Ronnie (Miley) and Will (Liam) and there relationship they had with another, Ronnie and Will just had this connection that most movie characters don't have. Ronnie is like a rebel tough girl who falls for the fit volleyball player who really isn't her type. The other part was about her dad and music. I highly recommend to just rent it or buy it cause it is totally worth it :)

    The movie was good..but I always read the books first. For anyon

    The movie was good..but I always read the books first. For anyone who wants to know this movie is very different than the book. I very much enjoyed the book. I only watch Nicholas Sparks movies after I read the books to see how much they will cut out.

    Really good movie!

    I've never been a Miley Cyrus fan...I'm still not a fan, so I was skeptical about watching this movie. I decided that I would watch it because it looked like a good movie and because I had many people tell me that it was a really good movie. I found myself laughing, crying, and wanting to strangle a couple of the characters at times. Overall this was a great movie, and I would recommend it to everyone, even those who don't like Miley Cyrus, it's worth watching.

    Pretty good movie

    I saw this movie in the movie theater and now I am dying to buy it on DVD! I can't wait to get it on DVD and I love this movie and I hope you do to! I thought it wasn't going to be that great because of some of the actors that are in it but it turned out to be emotional, funny, loving, and a great story!

    great movie

    if you are a fan of Miley Cyrus you will like this movie because it is a break-out of Miley's life as we know her from Hannah Montana and her new bf Liam Hemsworth is a great actor and very HOT
