Actually quite good...
1 February 2013 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

Alright, well I must say that I can't claim to be overly familiar with Miley Cyrus's former work, aside from the occasional zapping across her Hannah Montana stuff on TV, and knowing that she sings as well. And I didn't realize that she was in this movie before I started to question whether or not it was actually her whilst she was doing the stunts on the hotel balconies.

That being said, then you shouldn't be intimidated or scared away from watching "So Undercover" just because Miley Cyrus is in it, because the girl can actually act, and she does have a certain charm to her as well.

I thoroughly enjoyed this movie, because it was fun, and it was well put together, and the story was interesting enough, despite it being a late teenage comedy. But Jeremy Piven and Mike O'Malley also helped the movie along quite nicely.

Forget about Hannah Montana and try not to let the overshadowing stereotype that Miley Cyrus is stuck in overcast your opinion when you watch this movie, because it is actually a great fun ride for people of all ages.
