At the age of 20, the child star Miley Cyrus (who made her name as Hannah Montana on the Disney Channel) does not seem to be shaping up too well as an adult star as she mugs her way through Tom Vaughan's witless comedy thriller. She plays Molly, daughter of an ex-cop now reduced to divorce investigations, who assists her dad by taking clandestine photographs of adulterers in flagrante delicto. From this demeaning task she's rescued by the FBI and installed in a sorority house with a fake identity to help the Bureau find documents that will put a Russian capo di mafia behind bars. The plotting is confused, perfunctory and for much of the way ignored. After long stretches spent mocking the inanity and snobbery of the sorority system, the film does a volte-face with the supposedly rebellious Molly wholeheartedly joining in the exclusive fun with her new band of sisters. »
