The Last Song

Super-sentimental author Nicholas Sparks (Dear John, Nights in Rodanthe, The Notebook, A Walk to Remember, Message in a Bottle) wrote this story especially so that Miley Cyrus could make her dramatic debut. That's either awesome news or frightening information. Cyrus stars as a rebellious New York gal sent to a Georgia beach town to stay with her estranged father (Greg Kinnear). The two eventually bond over their mutual love of music. And there's some kind of romance in there too. If cheesy homilies like, "Sometimes you have to be apart from the people you love, but that doesn't make you love them any less. Sometimes it makes you love them more," make you cry buckets, have at it. 107 minutes PG.
