Hannah Montana (Miley Cyrus), is the pop-star alter ego of regular gal Miley Stewart, the title character of the wildly popular Disney
Channel's series. The movie starts with Miley trying to get into a Hannah Montana concert with her best pal
Lilly (Emily Osment "Soccer Mom"), while Miley's dad Robby Ray (Billy Ray Cyrus "Mulholland Drive") fumes backstage over her late arrival. Hijacking a golf cart,
the girls zoom past clueless security guards, who are naturally unaware, like everyone
else, that Miley and Hannah are the same person. With a little help from a blonde wig, false
eye lashes, sequins and heels, Miley becomes Hannah just in time for her show.
But Miley's so busy moonlighting as Hannah Montana and jetting off to
awards shows, that she barely has time for her friends or family as celebrity obligations overtake her life.
After nearly ruining Lilly's sweet-16 party and missing her brother Jackson's (Jason Earles "National Treasure") college sendoff, her father
hauls her off to Tennessee for a dose of reality, promising to turn the
pampered Malibu starlet back into a country girl.
Despite Miley's objections, Dad insists she'll have to
spend two weeks in Crowley's Corners, Tennessee, helping on the farm owned
by her no-nonsense grandma (Margo Martindale "The Savages"). After much initial
grousing, Miley begins to warm to it, especially when she meets the sexy ranch hand, Travis
(Lucas Till "Walk The Line"). She also has to deal with an aggressive tabloid journalist
(Peter Gunn "Ever After") who's hanging around, looking for dirt; and a greedy developer
(Barry Bostwick "Nancy Drew") who has plans to turn Crowley's Corners into a shopping center, unless she can manage to stop him.
All kinds of mayhem and pratfalls ensue at the expense of these two bad guys, and there are several charming musical numbers, including a rousing, toe-tapping, line-dancing hoedown led
by Miley in an effort to raise funds to stave off the developer. But
apparently, only a concert by Hannah Montana herself, engineered by
Miley, her publicist (Vanessa Williams "Johnson Family Vacation") and her pal Lilly that could bring in an audience that just might help save the town. Despite some generically catchy songs, this formlaic film directed by Peter Chelsom ("Shall We Dance"), is basically a showcase for Miley Cyrus' charming personality, and therefore will mostly satisfy her ever-increasing band of teenage fans.
