Had the best opening for any film over a Super Bowl weekend with an estimated $29 million. Former record holder was When a Stranger Calls (2006) with $21.6 million. See more »
During most of the concert footage Miley/Hannah is wearing a watch that appears and disappears on and off during the movie. See more »
You know, I didn't - I didn't expect, uh, so much screaming.

It's like standing behind a jet when it revs up. Actually worse.

In the DVD, the scene where Miley and her father are riding in the back of the limousine was cut. This was due to complaints that it set a bad example since they do not wear their seat belts. See more »
How can anyone watch this and not be thinking- give it ten more years and she'll be shaving her head? I hope with all my heart that it won't come to pass, but this overproduced and overblown effort to create stardom for the sake of stardom is mind-blowing. Miley has a pleasant enough voice, but all the bells and whistles (and pyrotechnics and massive financial expenditures) are definitely putting the cart before the horse- she hasn't risen to stardom, she has been shoved up there by folks seeking the all-mighty dollar. And the few moments showing Miley's mother are downright eerie- she's focused on the girl as if it is a life or death event, not an entertainment production. No smiles, no enjoying the music- she looks like a cat watching a canary in a cage. When interviewed, she seems to think helping her daughter with costume changes is the main proof that she's a concerned mom. Time may prove me wrong and that'd be a great thing, because statistically speaking child stars pushed to the top by obsessive parents just don't seem to do well in the long run.
In summary, lots of flash, non-memorable music. But I am grateful to see that Miley and her backup group can dance well without resorting to oversexed bumps and grinds.
