Pink Julep in the Cinema: The Last Song

I just watched The Last Song starring Miley Cyrus, Liam Hemsworth and Greg Kinear. It wasn't awesome, I have to say. It was entertaining and full of "young love" as one would expect from a Nicholas Sparks story, however I feel like this movie was basically The Notebook without the war and with a musician instead of a lumberjack. Pretty predictable and didn't bring out the waterworks like A Walk to Remember, Dear John or The Notebook... so really, what's the point?

Miley Cyrus is one talented gal, though I will say, perhaps she should stick to music... I found her to be very rigid in her performance and unaware of how she looks on film. She is gorgeous, but a lot of times her face contorted in funny ways and I found myself distracted, wondering if she's now embarrassed when she sees the film. But ya know what? She's a bajillionaire teenager, very young and I'm pretty sure we'll be seeing a lot more of her... she has plenty of time to learn, however I seriously doubt she'll be getting any nominations for this particular performance.

My official statement is this... glad I rented it, but it wouldn't have been worth the $25 in the cinema. Did you see it? What did you think?
