ACCM review

This review of the movie contains the following information:

A synopsis of the story

Hannah Montana and Miley Cyrus: Best of Both Worlds Concert is essentially a filmed concert of a young performer, Miley, interspersed with documentary style interviews and behind-the-scenes footage.  It is filmed entirely in 3D. Miley initially appears as her television alter-ego, Hannah Montana then, after handing over to her support act, the Jonas Brothers, returns to the stage as herself.


Children and adolescents may react adversely at different ages to themes of crime, suicide, drug and alcohol dependence, death, serious illness, family breakdown, death or separation from a parent, animal distress or cruelty to animals, children as victims, natural disasters and racism. Occasionally reviews may also signal themes that some parents may simply wish to know about.

The world of a young celebrity and her fans

Use of violenceinfo

Research shows that children are at risk of learning that violence is an acceptable means of conflict resolution when violence is glamourised, performed by an attractive hero, successful, has few real life consequences, is set in a comic context and / or is mostly perpetrated by male characters with female victims, or by one race against another.

Repeated exposure to violent content can reinforce the message that violence is an acceptable means of conflict resolution. Repeated exposure also increases the risks that children will become desensitised to the use of violence in real life or develop an exaggerated view about the prevalence and likelihood of violence in their own world.

In a nutshell

Hannah Montana/Miley Cyrus: Best of Both Worlds Concert is a non-fiction film featuring a concert plus documentary footage.  It is unique in that it is filmed in 3D, requiring viewers to wear supplied 3D spectacles.

Values in this movie that parents may wish to reinforce with their children include:

  • a positive outlook on life and its challenges
  • family relationships and support

Some parents may wish to discuss with their children the importance of having a role model to aspire to without the need to replicate their image.  Many of the children attending the concert were quite young but already wearing make-up, wigs and fashionable clothing like Hannah/Miley.

Parents might also wish to reinforce travel safety in vehicles, as Miley and her father, Billy Ray Cyrus, are seen travelling to the rehearsal studio in the back seat of a car without wearing seat belts.
