That’s how I’m guessing Walt Disney would choose to quote me in ads for Hannah Montana: The Movie had I actually written a review of it. Which would have gone something like this: At first it’s kinda cool, then it’s tremendously corny, then it’s rather sweet.

But in the middle of the film there’s this big dance number that’s just…well, brilliant. It’s set to a song called “Hoedown Throwdown,” a ridiculously catchy hiphop/country hybrid. Here’s the (admittedly cheesy) video. Note the token black people at the front of the film’s hoedown:


Now, I’m not saying that Miley Cyrus has an ounce of genuine hiphop talent in her. But for some reason, this urban/hick mix just works. Kinda like monte cristos and raspberry jelly. Brilliant!
