Don't bother.

Some positive messages about being yourself. Lots of consumerism. Dreadful storyline involving liking a boy and dating so unsuitable for a young age. The whole family finds it strange that this is a popular movie as it does nothing for us. Saccharin, dull and a big mistake that we bought it.

This title has:

Too much consumerism

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (3 ):
Kids say (6 ):

This game is good for fans of Hannah Montana. They will get to sing and dance to 11 songs, including 5 from Hannah Montana The Movie. The game skews as young as age 6 because the controls are very easy, and most of the dialogue is spoken aloud. Miley has an onscreen organizer that reminds you of your next task. And when you are controling Miley (or occasionally Hannah), an onscreen arrow always shows you the direction to head. Plus the adventure is peppered with fun minigames, including one where you get to ride a horse and make it jump over fences.

But the adventure isn't deep -- it is really a series of tasks involving fetching things for others. And while the Wii version gets kids moving as they join Hannah Montana on stage to perform, parents might not like the message the game sends to young girls about the need to do so much fashion shopping. This Hannah is a clothes horse.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
