Critics have never been shy to voice their opinion. However, it did not take long at all (even for a critic) to bash Miley Cyrus’ performance in The Last Song.
The LA Times reports that “Razzie voters adore rewarding pop tarts who attempt to act. Some of its biggest past champs include Madonna, Paris Hilton and Britney Spears.:”
This, however, is not a new story that “goes out on the limb.” It should be noted that Miley was recently nominated for worst actress at the 2010 Razzies for Hannah Montana: The Movie. She lost to Sandra Bullock, who fittingly also won “Best Actress” at this year’s Oscars.
Should we expect to see Miley repeat Sandra’s award collection in 2011?
Doubtful. On Metacritic, the movie’s score currently sits at a pitiful 39. The New York Times asserts that acting “seems almost entirely beyond her,” adding, “In The Last Song, 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.”
Lou Lumenick of the New York Post says that Miley displays “approximately 1 1/2 expressions’ on screen,” adding, “It’s the worst of both worlds as Disney cash cow Miley Cyrus makes the most dubious ‘dramatic’ debut of any singer since Britney Spears.”
To add insult to injury, movie king Robert Ebert gave the film 2 1/2 stars.
Do you agree with the hard criticism?
