90 Minute Root Canal
25 May 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Producers obvious failed to realize that semi cute bad acting Disney Channel kids can grow up to be ugly, really bad acting, and annoying adults. The mere fact that a director, cameraman, boom mic operator, and other crew actually committed this to film is truly disturbing.

Dentists everywhere may be out of work, as 'So Undercover' can inflict far more pain than ever before imagined.

Every single last second of this trash had me reciting the 23rd Psalm, "Yea though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I shall fear no evil," until I realized that was written long before the agony of Miley Cyrus' "acting" was ever know.

Just in case you're having any thoughts of actually seeing this film, perhaps a "plot" synopsis will dissuade you.

Cyrus "stars" as chubby faced Texas private investigator who's supposed to be "bad ass." Considering Cyrus' figure and face that term may be taken in more than one way. Cyrus is pathetic as a 'La Femme Nikita' want to be. (or in any other role) She agree to work undercover for FBI agent Jeremy Piven (What bet with the Devil did he lose too be in this?) In order to pay off her father's gambling debt. Although since the film ends with Cyrus failing to collect her fee it's unclear how her father is still alive and well. This could have been easily explained away with Cyrus receiving reward money from the FBI but that would be to logical for the "writers." Cyrus must go "so undercover" as a spoiled sorority brat at a New Orleans university, in order to..........? Well again, the "writers" never really bother to explain this or how Jeremy Piven has an unlimited budget to supply Cyrus with her undercover rich brat identity.

Only Disney is able to film on location in a city 60% black and give us a 99.9% white cast. I actually counted the token minorities in this film. There's one Mulatto girl! They couldn't even be bothered to work in a few minorities even as extras in the background! At the sorority house Cyrus discovers that all sorority girls a dumb blondes. THAT'S THE SOLE PREMISES for every "joke" in this movie! Pretty girls are dumb! Although Cyrus proves that ugly girls are more dumb.

How else could the "writers" explain why Cyrus' cover isn't blown the first day as she randomly brandishes a handgun sticking it into the faces of her sorority sisters? Since this is Disney, the sorority makes an Amish farm look like 'Animal House' as there is NO sex, beer, or rock and roll, even at a pool party with a fraternity. No, Disney music does not count as rock and roll.

There are several other MAJOR plot holes, such as Cyrus taking photos with a digital camera and then stating she left the "negatives" in a mailbox. And ad nauseam diatribes against the RICO act of 1970. Yes, "diatribes," there's more than one.

But the real nail against the chalkboard is Cyrus herself. She is so annoying, it's unbelievable anyone actually paid to see this film.

Worst film I've ever seen since 'The Starfighters' 1964.
