Miley Cyrus’ feature The Last Song is kind of like Terms of Endearment for teenagers. There’s conflict between a parent and child. Miley’s got the Shirley MacLaine role. Jack Nicholson’s part is played by the teenaged Darth Vader. And he does a much better job of being this kid than he did of being Darth.
Greg Kinnear is kind of like Jeff Daniels, but that’s not the part he plays.
I really liked the little brother.
The aquarium scenes were pretty. And the whole beach thing was swell. I really didn’t understand the need for a bad-girl sup-plot.
It’s an old formula, and it usually works. Like this time.
