Hannah Montana: The Movie slickly translates the Disney Channel tween smash onto the big screen, say critics, but those who aren't already fans can safely sit this one out.
- Moira Macdonald, Seattle Times: The movie "is an excuse for some generically catchy songs and a showcase for Miley Cyrus' charmingly chipmunk-cheeked smile; and on that level, it works well enough."
- Jeff Vice, Deseret News: The "mix of musical numbers, down-home country cliches and silly slapstick" was "clearly crafted with her biggest aficionados in mind."
- Ernest Hardy, LA Weekly: "It's almost foolish to review Hannah Montana: The Movie as anything other than the latest cog in a cultural phenomenon/mass-marketing juggernaut. The film itself certainly doesn't aspire to anything more."
