concert movie review

Just in case any of you have been living under a rock, Hannah Montana IS Miley Cyrus... Billy Ray's daughter and the star of the Disney show of the same name. Loopy was crushed not to see her in concert - she wasn't playing anywhere near us.

It was genius of Disney to film the concerts in 3-D, edit them together with little regard for continuity (watch! no watch! she's wearing her watch again! the watch is gone!) and play the movie in limited release for those unable to see the concert. I mean, really. Disney will get you coming and going, even if you can't get there in the first place.

The surprise? I liked it! Loopy and I went to the first show in our city this afternoon. I expected it to be an entire concert, which could get a little tedious if you're not a fan. But it was interspersed with backstage footage - including lots of documentary material about the stage production and costuming. This part I loved.

And seriously, she it totally likeable and cute. I enjoyed the "Miley" parts of the concert better than the "Hannah" stuff, but that's just me.

The costumes were amazing... lots of changes. I'm fascinated with the production value of that stuff. Her mom waits backstage to change her - sometimes in 39 seconds!

I've seen Britney Spears in concert and also Hilary Duff... this movie was better than both of those concerts put together. Don't rush out to see it unless you've got a little girl in tow, half the fun is enjoying it with your daughter.

Oh, and after the concert, Miss Loopy copped to the fact that her real desire to see this flick was to see the super-adorable Jonas Brothers in concert.  I knew there had to be a catch.  They were pretty awesome too!



We loved it too.

What fun to see this with your daughter. I have to admit I do indeed live under a rock as I didn't know about Hannah Montana--I really must watch more TV, I guess, so I can become more culturally enlightened.

I'm glad you and L. had fun. I bet she will never forget this night. You're a good mom.
