Movie critics, who tend to be somewhat older than the target group of Hannah Montana/Miley Cyrus: Best of Both Worlds Concert Tour, can't quite figure out what all the fuss is about when it comes to the 15-year-old star of the concert movie. Jan Stuart in Newsday calls it "assertively upbeat but melodically negligible." (The remark evokes memories of similar comments directed at the Beatles after their 1964 debut.) Elizabeth Weitzman in the New York Daily News describes the music as "spunky pop." Andy Webster in the New York Times sniffs that Cyrus's "attire isn't tawdry, and it appears that she can sing." And Christy Lemire of the Associated Press reveals that she sat through the entire movie wishing "desperately for Miley Cyrus, the singing, dancing, songwriting, trendsetting dynamo, to avoid turning into Britney Spears."
