Why do I have a feeling that this won't be her last song?
Miley/Hannah/Jekyl/Hyde is back. Or wait, who is it again? A Transformer? She's got so many identities at this point I've gone cross-eyed. Let's just call her Disney Female Superstar #X814D3F. In any event, some brainiac got the idea to cast her in The Last Song, the third in a series of gut-wrenching chick flicks that is sure to leave you out 20 bucks and wanting your 2 hours back. So basically, it's like Church. Worse yet, this won't be her last song! Not even close! She's really young and chances are she'll release music until Disney has squeezed out every last drop of her mind-grapes.
I wonder how much they had to pay Greg Kinnear for him to take the part? He seems like a reasonable guy, so I'm guessing something like infinity-billion dollars.
Mock log-line: A star quarterback turned lame-o shows up to his homecoming game only to throw the winning touchdown pass AND sing at halftime for millions of screaming fans. Women swoon for him, but it's the deaf-mute with a heart of gold (played by Cyrus) that wins his heart in the end.
