Hannah Montana: The Movie

Miley Stewart is just an average teen who goes to an average school. She has an average (goofy) brother, an average (joke-cracking, groan-inducing) dad and average friends. But add a dab of blush and a blonde wig and — KAPOW! — she's Hannah Montana. 

That kind of secret dual existence can be pretty fun. But when Miley's dad, Robby Ray, sees the celebrity lifestyle changing his little girl, he takes the family back home to Crowley Corners, Tennessee, for a two-week dose of Hannah-free reality.

There's a whole lot of family love that rolls around in this film. The characters truly care about each other and try to encourage good decisions. But that doesn't mean all negative things are cut from this G-rated flick. Miley and Lilly wear immodest outfits. Miley's Hollywood manager also dresses in revealing clothes. Miley's "boyfriend" takes off his shirt once and the two share a brief kiss. Some of the language isn't the best, but maybe the most disturbing thing is that Miley decides she won't be happy without the cheering crowds.

Hannah Montana: The Movie has plenty of laughs, campy slapstick and singing and dancing. But in the end, it's important to remember that a relationship with a loving family and a loving God is enough to make anyone happy and fulfilled.
