The Last Song

Estranged father (Greg Kinnear) gets a chance to spend the summer with his reluctant and rebellious teenaged daughter (Miley Cyrus), who’d rather be home in New York. He tries to reconnect with her through music.

My Review: The Last Song had as many flaws as is did successes. Nicholas Sparks' films always include a fair share of tears. The sad aspect of the film is as predictable as Cyrus' attempt to be an emo teenager. Kinnear plays the most touching role in the Sparks tearjerker which once more solidifies his range of acting chops given the circumstances. Miley Cyrus has a ways to go before she sets her place as a big-time actress, but this film is a start for her as she quite convincingly (later in the film) goes through the various emotions that makes her performance more believable. Except for the beginning, the movie is not a bad piece of work but it is immature.  2 and a half out of 4 stars.
