For those of you who didn't know, The Last Song is based on the book by the same name, written by Nicholas sparks, who also happened to pen the screenplay for the one and only
I'll be honest. The movie wasn't awful. While Miley Cyrus maintained one facial expression the entire time and portrayed the emotional range of a bean, the rest of the cast, including Greg Kinnear and Liam Hemsworth did quite well. The story line involving Ronnie's father was well-played, and I'll admit, it brought a tear (or ten) to my eyes. A lot of the film ended up just being fluff though, especially because I don't think Miley Cyrus is able to carry such a powerful role yet. To all Miley fans: I'm sorry...but I maintain that!
All in all, this film is a mild tear-jerker, albeit very mild, and I give it a 3.5 out of 5. I'd recommend it to anyone who's a fan of Nicholas Sparks' works, and while it might not be the best film, it's definitely a date film. Below is the trailer.
