I was apprehensive about seeing this film, as I had only heard of Hannah Montana

as some US kids show.

I was expecting a Britney Spears / High School Musical mix of film with some spoilt brat in an over-sugary role.

I was worried enough to borrow a friend's kid so I wouldn't feel guilty at watching it.

I Need not have worried as the film comes across extremely well and us adults will enjoy this film immensely too as much as the kids.

Hannah played by Miley Cyrus, (daughter of Billy Ray Cyrus who also appears in this film as her dad) leads a double life one as Hannah, a top pop star, and the other Miley, an almost down to earth teenager.

She uses the switch-between to lead a normal life out of the glare and pandemonium of fame-seeking Hannah's world.

As Hannah she is a star and knows so, which is why her dad takes her back to her roots where she grew up as Miley in a small farming town.

There she meets a farmhand boy who she likes, and he likes her too and soon enough Miley gets down to hard work to prove town-folk, who think she too proud and posh, wrong.

The town is about to be redeveloped and with no money to stop the builders, Miley says she knows Hannah and gets her to come to town to perform a concert to raise money to buy the land.

This in turn leads to Miley switching between Hannah and herself with plenty of fun

The music is new and, split between the personas of Hannah and Miley, a real treat.

The icing on the top has to be a duet with her dad, also a new line dance track that is likely to played every where soon .

As the farmhand says: "Life's a climb but the view is worth it."

Rating: 4 / 5 stars
