The worst movie I have ever seen, 12 April 2010
Author: albert-ruis from United States

My 14 year old daughter and I (39 year old woman) went to see this together and both hated it. We both had read the book and loved it so we decided to see the movie.

The people who play Miley Cyrus' little brother and father were excellent and had a lot of great lines, but unfortunately Miley Cyrus and her boyfriend, absolutely, completely, can not act. And since they are the main focus of the movie it dragged on and on. The dialogue was very straightforward and boring.

This is the only movie I have ever seen that I was contemplating walking out.
