Based on best—selling novelist Nicholas Sparks’ (“A Walk to Remember,” “The Notebook”) latest novel, THE LAST SONG is set in a small Southern beach town where an estranged father (GREG KINNEAR) gets a chance to spend the summer with his reluctant teenaged daughter (MILEY CYRUS), who’d rather be home in New York. He tries to reconnect with her through the only thing they have in common—music—in a story of family, friendship, secrets and salvation, along with first loves and second chances. The film is directed by Julie Anne Robinson from a screenplay by Sparks & Jeff Van Wie.

So bad it makes The Notebook look like Casablanca.Peter Travers, Rolling Stone, 04.01.2010
For those wondering if the continuing popularity of such exercises might make this one worth the ticket price, the same effect might be achieved by writing names and obstacles (make some tragic) on index cards and tossing them in the air.Michael Ordona, Los Angeles Times, 06.24.2010
The predictable plot mechanics aren't what make it insufferable. The big problem is Miley Cyrus.Stephanie Zacharek, Salon.com, 06.24.2010
Cyrus is ghastly in The Last Song, bad not just in one or two ways, but in all kinds of ways. It was a disservice to the audience, to the material and to Cyrus herself that she was put in this position.Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle, 06.24.2010
