Miley's Performance In The Last Song Massacred By Critics!

| Filed under: Britney SpearsFilm FlickersMiley Cyrus


Ouch ouch ouch!

You might be better off sticking to getting tattoos, humping Aussies and pole-dancing singing, Miley!

The reviews are in for the tweener's latest film, The Last Song, and to call them scathing would be the understatement of the year!

Girlfriend gets TORN TO SHREDS!

A critic for The New York Times says:

"Acting, for the moment at least, seems almost entirely beyond her…she pouts, slouches, storms in and out of rooms and occasionally cracks a snaggle-toothed smile, but most of the time she seems to be mugging for the camera, play-acting rather than exploring the motives and feelings of her character."

And that's kind, compared to The New York Post:

"Cyrus makes the most dubious 'dramatic' debut of any singer since Britney Spears."

And The Village Voice gets the nastiest dig in with:

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

We'll spare you the rest of the verbal massacre, but rest assured, The Boston Globe, Miami Herald, and Variety weren't any kinder.

WOW. We almost feel sorry for Miley. Almost.

Especially seeing as producers essentially had author Nicholas Sparks write the screenplay and its novelization as a starring vehicle for her!

Acting without a long blonde wig and juvenile quips is HARD, isn't it??

Better give that drama coach a call, bb!!

Sounds like you are in serious need of one!

    Ouch! I havent seen the movie, probably won't, but still her acting cant be THAT bad. Or is it?

  2. 2

    well that's what happens when a disney product like miley cyrus attempts to have a career where actual talent is required. of course she is an EPIC FAIL. maybe this will teach her to stick to entertaining children; they have no standards or expectations when it comes to the performers they enjoy.

  3. 3

    Ahahahaha! Andy Hardy! She'll never come close to understanding that reference.

  4. 4

    SNAGGLE TOOTH? hahaha geez…and Mickey in a wig??? Wow that is uber harsh, but really, did anyone expect it to be a quality movie? She needs to stick to singing about tween life

  5. 5

    ha! I really find her annoying. She also needs to slow down when she talks.

  6. 6

    LoL ! ! ! 'Snaggle-toothed' ! Looks like this Prostitot ain't gonna be kissing Mr. Oscar anytime soon ! Matbe it is not such a good idea to be distancing herself from Hanna Montanna ! Again, catch her on-line a couple of years from now, high on crack, nude, with six guys, 'attempting' to go down on them !

  7. 7

    The only thing worth watching in this movie is likely her new 'boyfirend' with his shirt off ! To bad Greg Kinear is caught up in this dog's dog !

  8. 8

    I just watched the trailer…doesn't seem so bad.

  9. 9

    Shut the fuck up you butt fucker.
    She had good reviews too.
    And the fact that one of those rags called her names isnt very credible. GOOD critics arent biased.
    You really suck at getting stories.
    perez FAILS.
    miley WINS
    So go blow a tranny.

  10. 10

    Roger Ebert gave her a pretty good review though.

  11. 11

    Oh Mario, are those the only one's you read? Oh wait, that's right, you ignored really good reviews and went to the very few bad ones. The movie is SO good, exceeded my expectations. Why don't you post ALL the reviews, because you know the movie got really good ones? You're so pathetic, more than the "critics" that "reviewed" The Last Song. Focusing on what she looks like, and their kiss, haha people now a days seriously. That has nothing to do with the acting. So sad.

  12. 12

    wow i'm honestly suprised about this. I wasn't expecting anything amazing from her even though I love her but still. I feel so bad.

  13. 13

    She DOES suck!!! I can't fucking stand her snaggle-toothed smile and her hee-haw hick nonsense. Ugh, she's the worst!

    The NY Times review is fking hysterical!!!!!!!!! LOVE IT!

  14. 14

    hahahahahhahahhahaha YES the cherry on top now would be if her movie bombs in the box office… which i sadly doubt since all these young girls are dying to see this crap :P

  15. 15

    btw that smile comment that guy made was really rude and immature

  16. 16

    That was pretty harsh, but what do you expect?
    she was never really a good actress to begin with.
    oh well, shes still making millions…

  17. 17


  18. 18

    How about she never act again.. ? or if she just disappear. That would be great also. You could tell in the previews that her acting was bad.

  19. 19

    NY TIMES review is classic….

  20. 20

    She has got some sort of hyperactive disorder…..definitely.

  21. 21

    well if i watched it i will probably be the same she needs to put more emitons to audinces than her self like i felt on deare john i didnt feel anything not even the romance

  22. 22


  23. 23

    Go Miley!!! pfft ofcourse they make a big deal just because is Miley Cyrus!!

  24. 24

    LMFAO…..the worst part about the whole thing is that "shiny, buff Liam Hemsworth" LIKES making out with Snaggletooth!! ahahahahaha….. Perez, you should just call her that from now on, it's so PERFECT…

  25. 25

    maybe billie-ray kissing mickey rooney?

  26. 26

    She will be lost when she is no longer in the limelight, and is on her 25th boyfriend. This will happen 9 months from now !

  27. 27

    Ouch! I believe she will follow in Lohans footsteps!

  28. 28

    wow. this movie was horrible. I went into expecting a good drama, but it was just all over the place. Nobody can say this film was good. No matter how much of a fan you may be! and omg she does slouch! pouting and whining is in no way rebellious and thats all she was. hilary duff had better luck.

  29. 29

    I'm not defending her or Britney, but I can see how they were talked into it by their agents.

  30. 30

    This girl needs to stick to singing so we don't have to look at her face.

  31. 31

    HAHAHAHA I love it. Miley sucks and can't act at all.

  32. 32

    She has been a little cockier than normal lately, so let us hope these stinging (and honest) reviews will bring her down a notch or two. She was all over the media promoting this crap…maybe this will send her into hiding. God, we can only hope. IF the movie has any success, it will be due to the hunky guy, and not her HorseFace. Just say'n. And Miley if you are reading this (and we know you are), cool it on the crap talk - stop trying to be 'cool' by dissing country music, etc. You ain't cool…..

  33. 33

    Why do you guys have to hate on her so bad? Jealousy perhaps? Miley I havent seen the movie but everything they are saying is a loud of crap, DO NOT even listen nor give them the time of day, since in fact thats what they want, a nice reaction from you. Don't give it to them (:

  34. 34

    Can't wait to see the SnaggleTooth at the Razzies, accepting for worst actress…..

  35. 35

    Hahaha….but seriously, ouch.

  36. 36

    Re: tonetickles – umm…a loud of crap doesn't exist if your gonna support her awful career might as well learn to spell LOAD OF CRAP

  37. 37

    Speaking of undercooked & worthless screen performances…last night, for the first time, I saw marios tour de force 'Toronto Burning' written, produced, directed, filmed & starring (in his first leading role to date) mario (co-starring the hypocritical hag known as "It's been a beautiful night" caca) and its prequel the documentary as filmed by t*m*z 'When Animals Provoke Attacks'. Let me offer the following critique if I may, I laughed & laughed & laughed & when I didn't think I could watch anymore, I did & I laughed some more.
    What was the most delicious morsel of the entire ironic pie? marios broken ingenue? or the dripping with hate & venom diatribe (his normal language) that in the same breath questions why anyone would attack him? when he cries (yes, that was my personal favorite)? when he squeals that his eye was hanging out? oh god, I've gotta stop before I schadenfreude orgasm.
    Why he was overlooked for Best Actress Oscar is a riddle wrapped in a mystery inside a ladyman vagina.

  38. 38

    I'm not a fan, but I doubt these were the only reviews
    Ok. I checked and these are the BAD ones perez included.
    Seems like he chose not to show any of the reviews that thought she was good.
    Plus, according to my newspaper teacher, reviews should not be biased, and most of the ones perez showed are. Hmm, i don't trust critics anyway.
    They're full of sh***t.

  39. 39

    Those are some pretty mainstream media dissing her …. So……..Just say'n .

  40. 40

    As bad as it sounds I'm really not suprised at all

  41. 41

    Saw the movie, and she acted like a teen. . .which I think is how she was suppose to act. . .

    So get over it critics. . .
    And by the way, when the hell did people take the word of critics on movies, anyways!?!?!

  42. 42

    HAHAHAHA Thake that bitch! She's such an EPIC fail..

  43. 43

    In the book, the character is the same way and it is annoying to read. I hate to see what it's like on screen.

  44. 44

    I always knew she sucked so am I surprised? NO.

  45. 45

    Finally! I've been saying for years that this chick can't act. But yet she kept winning all these awards. It's about time someone put her in her place.

  46. 46

    Re: erin rose – oh sorry i was one fucking letter off? haha jesus nothing better to do then bitch about fucking spelling. come on try your best shot

  47. 47

    EVERYBODY THATS HATING CAN SHUTUP, do you pl understand ow hard it is to get into the business, just by her getting into it shows that she has something now she might not be merly strep good but she def has something there and i wonder what you haters are doing with your lifes miley makes in one day what you people make in one year so shut up stop hating and if you have nothing nice to say dont say anything at all and i dare someone to say something back to me too!!

  48. 48

    Re: HayleySMILES!Re: HayleySMILES! – Winning all those awards ? ! The 'Teen Choice Awards' ain't exactly the Oscars. I mean, the 'surfboard's' colour has already faded !

  49. 49

    saw the movie today and think that although she is by no means the best actress, which she has herself said, she did a fair job and did the part justice. i think she suited the role very well.

  50. 50

    Okay, I just got back from watching the movie. I actually really enjoyed it. She really wasn't as bad as what these "critics" are saying. Shouldn't they be focusing on her acting rather than criticizing the way that she looks. No wonder why our country has image issues. Hands up a great movie it's funny and sad. Definately wouldnt say worst actress nor best, shes just getting started. Kristen Stewert is hands up the worst actress.

  51. 51

    What did they expect. Isn't her 'acting' on Hannah Montana just a lot of storming about and yelling her lines at the top of her voice?

  52. mp23 says – reply to this


    ill skip the theaters and watch it online. i mean i already figured out what happens by watching the trailer..im not gonna pay to watch what i already know.

    oh and Re: Ashesss – since when are critics suppose to be unbiased? the whole point of being a critic is to state your opinion..

  53. 53

    FINALLY im soooo sick of her non talented ass i said she couldnt act the first time i saw hanah montannah!! and the same thing is going to happen to selena gomez!!! SHE REALLY CANT SING but her acting is better than mileys atleast…

  54. 54

    Re: smileforever456 – The reviews I read, and I am from NY, basically trashed the MOVIE, as in the screenplay, the writing, etc. I did read the acting was nothing exciting, but it did not say 'MILEY SUCKED' the way mario is putting it. but then again, Mario has always hated Miley except for maybe 5 minutes when she supported the no vote on prop 8. and he of course hates almost all women with the exception of like 6

  55. 55

    Roger Ebert who you quoted elsewhere raved about her. LOL Jealous much?

  56. 56

    Re: Ashesss – Rags? The New York Times a "rag"? I suppose if Star Magazine was reviewing this, then your "rag" argument would be sufficient. But no, the New York Times is actually highly regarded.

  57. 57

    oh miley. everyone loves you. not worry your fans wont stop being fans because your not quite meryl on the big screen. xo

  58. 58

    welllll to be honest…its not miley that is the problem with the puting slouching and stuff…thats how the character is if you ever read the book…shes supposed to be acting that way so dont blame it on miley

  59. 59


  60. 60

    She is a talent-less, ugly, horse-faced, gangly, hunch-backed, in-bred, hill-billy tramp, who, without Disney, would be holed up in some backwoods trailer dating a cousin or two. Now, can we PLEASE pick on someone else … ? ! C'mon, LiHo, fall into another bush, human or other-wise ! ;)

  61. 61

    HA! That just made my day

  62. 62

    I hate her voice…and her face, she is so overrated
    I saw her in AI…oh my god…poor kids…ewwww

    great critics btw jajajajajajaja

  63. 63

    You know American Idol is no longer relevant when they have HER on the show ! Just say'n …..

  64. 64

    BTW, her legs look awfully chunky in this photo ……

  65. 65

    Crossroads was epic. Fuck off…

  66. 66

    Re: Be-Atch
    Shut up
    your probably the ugliest thing in the world who the fuck do you think you are like wtf are you doing with life do you honestly get satisfaction from being a fucking ass your probably an ugly fat nerd that has no friends and no life and nothing to do but get online and talk about people that have done NOTHING to you if you dont like the movie simply say i dont like it immature bitch

  67. 67

    yikes :( judge it for yourself though. if you like those kind of stories. I thought it was fantastic.

  68. 68

    At least she admitted that she wanted to take acting lessons. I always thought she was annoying but I'm starting to respect her more. She just seems to want to live her life.

  69. 69


  70. 70

    Re: erinhyeahh – I don't care if its respected or not. Calling someone names in the open for everyone to see it is pretty shitty and unprofessional. They could have been more respectful. Shes 17 and probably did a better job than any of those "critics" let on.
    Re: mp23 – Umm, im pretty sure they are supposed to be professional and focus on her acting, not her looks. I've heard a lot of good reviews on the movie. It seems like a lot of those critics need to grow up and be professional.

  71. 71

    Re: guiltypleazure – WOW, you think Madonna's an epic artist and Miley is an okay actress. Put the pipe down, darling.

  72. 72

    this is horrible, it was an amazing movie.
    what the hell did miley even do to get such criticism. people who judge her so closely are truly just pathetic. just because she is famous doesnt mean she's perfect.

    this is shit.

  73. 73

    Please post the GOOD reviews!

    Mariah Carey's 'Precious' career
    From MSNBC's Entertainment-Movies article, "Can Miley Cyrus build a movie career? Will she shine onscreen like Mariah Carey, or flop like Madonna?"

    Mariah Carey's 'Precious' career
    After the epic disaster that was "Glitter," everyone expected Mariah Carey's film career to follow the Tony Bennett trajectory. Bloody but unbowed, however, she pressed on with her acting career, to much better results. Not many people saw the indie "WiseGirls," in which Carey turned out a spunky and funny performance as a seen-it-all waitress in a mob-run restaurant.

    But it was her attention-getting turn in last year's "Precious: Based on the Novel 'Push' by Sapphire," that established Carey as an actress to watch. Yes, much to-do was made over the fact that she had drab hair and wardrobe in the part, and eschewed makeup to the point where she was practically mustachioed, but that was just the surface.

    What Carey brought to the role was a ferocity, a deadpan wit and an intensity that was the complete antithesis of her inert walk-through of "Glitter." She's been cast in Tyler Perry's upcoming all-star adaptation of Ntozake Shange's "For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide When the Rainbow is Enuf," and it's going to be interesting to see where her film career takes her. It will be equally interesting to see if Cyrus will ever feel prepared to tackle a film as gritty and unglamorous as "Precious."

    "Acting, for the moment at least, seems almost entirely beyond her…she pouts, slouches, storms in and out of rooms and occasionally cracks a snaggle-toothed smile…"

    Um, do they not know the character? I haven't seen the movie yet but I'm currently reading the book (about half way through) and that's how Veronica is.

    Who cares anyway? These reviews won't stop people from seeing it.

    she sounds like a 65 year old smoker!

  77. Celt says – reply to this


    Who gives a shit about critics? I don't even think they're necessary…I never go or not go to see a movie because of what they say. To me, they're a waste of space in the paper. Make up your own minds dang it! Don't let some self important snob develop your opinion for you.

  78. 78

    Wow I completely disagree. I was really impressed by the movie, and I think she did good. And it was her first movie of this sort, so they should probably calm down a little bit. Miley's beautiful and talented, I'd watch it again :)

  79. 79


  80. 80

    Alright first of all I saw the movie was it Oscar worthy hell no, but did I cry like a baby watching it yes Miley isn't that horrible it was not The Notebook by any means or even Dear John but it was still decent Entertainment Weekly gave it a B she isn't that awful.

  81. 81

    i saw the movie and i dont think it is as bad as everyone is saying, but the book was way better.

  82. 82

    I just saw the movie and honestly she tried too hard. I think it was a great movie but Miley definitely needs acting lessons. I think her appearance for the character was right on, but she just didnt know what to do with her self. Her facial expression.. omg! But on a lighter note she did do a great job crying in the movie.. looked totally believable.

  83. 83

    hahahahha die ugly bitch die

  84. 84

    Her acting is a bit on the horrid side.
    I think she should def. stick to singing she seems more comfortable and natural when she performs.
    one needs to become lost in their character in order to be convincing and enjoyable to watch.

  85. 85

    For real people. Just because she's MILEY CYRUS doesn't mean she can automatically do everything. She SHOULDN'T be in any movies ever because she CAN NOT ACT. sigh, what hollywood is becoming these days :p

  86. 86

    i dont think anyone should let critics influence their choices you should form your own opinion and it is not fair to just show bad reviews when you know that there are plenty of good ones.

  87. 87

    Um….I ACTUALLY saw the movie and it was AH-MAZING!! So, I don't know what the hell those critics were saying and if Perez read the other reviews he would see that they actually said that Miley was GOOD. Not just good, GREAT. So if I were you guys, I would shut the hell up and go see the movie and then come back.

  88. 88


  89. 89

    she had a some goood reviews.
    you cant win them all.
    sry miley :/
    your movie will go no 1 though!

  90. 90


  91. 91

    omg i just saw it it was SOOSOSOSOSOSO good!!!!! miley isnt the best but it was an AMAZING movie worth seeing

  92. 92

    perez should stop trying to be a drama queen and read reviews by ROGER EBERT, ROGER MOORE of the Orlando Sentinel, and Time Out New York. Only the bad reviews would be posted. Ugh, I'm so over this site. It doesn't even post things first anymore. It's always LATE. Anybody, know of another GOOD blog?

  93. 93

    I just got back from seeing this movie and its so good! she puts lots of emotion into her character and the stories so cute. pretty much everyone in the theatre was bawling and reacting to it. perez is just an asshole!!!!!!

  94. 94

    Hillbilly what did you expect?

  95. 95

    rottentomatoes gave it a 14% Hey this movie did better than The Bounty Hunter.

  96. ko15 says – reply to this


    I saw the movie, and not only was it amazing, but nearly everyone in the theater had tears in their eyes thanks to Miley's dramatic performance. I was extremely impressed! I think the critics went a little to far, there is no reason to be so mean, they were insulting her more so then her acting abilities.

  97. 97

    I only like her when she is hannah montana! REALLY! I hate miley's work, movies and music but I loooove hannah montana music and the show!

  98. 98

    To all you people, I am not a fan of cyrus and neither is my dads girlfriend but we both went to see it, and thought it was great, its a total chick flick but there were some guys in and we ALL cried our eyes out. Its a movie about a troubled TEENAGED girl so of course shes going to be pouting, throwing tantrums and such, her acting was average,

  99. @v@ says – reply to this


    She's very young, and the movie isn't Hamlet by any stretch. An acting coach would always be a good idea if she wants to build and improve on her acting experience. I get the feeling that they won't keep Miley down. Ripping on teens isn't even really fair play. Their brains aren't even done developing yet. Shrugs.

  100. 100

    "A more convincing star could make this a degree more tolerable, although in Cyrus’s defense not much more. She’s cute whether she’s smiling, crying, or wearing a pretty lavender dress. It’d be nice to see her do some acting, but that doesn’t appear to be high on the movie’s list of priorities. Allegedly, this is the film in which Cyrus gets all, like, dramatic. If by “dramatic’’ one means pouty, sullen, and cute, then OK. But it’s not tragedy you sense behind those big brown eyes. It’s a party in the USA."
