got an all-access pass to the exciting life of a celebrity in
HANNAH MONTANA: POP STAR PROFILE! Relive Hannah's drama when
another big star comes on the scene and shakes things up. Plus,
meet Miley Cyrus's real-life family and experience Hannah live
TV series like that have a strong influence on young
viewers. Look at what the characters in High School Musical
have turned young kids into. Look at how TV personalities
like Lizzie McGuire and Raven have turned countless kids into
fans. There are also real life celebrities like Britney Spears
and Lindsay Lohan, but we are sure the House of Mouse wouldn’t
endorse them as much as the more wholesome personalities like
Stewart (Miley Cyrus) leads a normal life like any other teenager.
However, she leads a double life – she’s also
a popular singer Hannah Montana. She lives with her father
who doubles up as her artiste manager and nerdy brother Jackson.
Like any other teenager, she has best friends in school and
faces problems like crushes, jealousy and the biggest one
of them all, love. This DVD contains four episodes from the
hit Disney Channel series: “The New Kid in School”,
“More Then a Zombie to Me”, “Good Golly
Miss Molly” (watch out for Dolly Parton in this one),
and “People Who Use People”.
four episodes revolve around Jake Ryan, a famous TV actor,
who joins Miley’s school and catches everyone’s
attention. Miley gets irritated initially but begins to to
see another side of Jake Ryan and a little crush develops.
Of course, this develops into a romance, which isn’t
very surprising, if you ask us.
of these episodes have its fair share of laughs, and in true
sitcom manner, they are genuinely quite funny. When there
is canned laughter in the background, you can’t help
but chuckle along too. Besides, it does not hurt that these
jokes have a nice youthful charm to them. Each of these episodes
also has a side story about Miley’s father and brother
who normally spend time goofing around and sabotaging each
other. These light hearted gags are perfect for a boring weekend
afternoon for the bored teenager.
Cyrus is Disney Channel’s next big thing; remember seeing
her at the Academy Awards earlier this year? We recall her
countless fans screaming at the red carpets, and we are also
quite sure she is good influence for the kids at home –
just make sure she does not follow Ms. Spears or Ms. Lohan’s
paths into downward spiral. Our advice to Ms. Cyrus: Make
good friends, star in wholesome movies, fall in love with
a clean cut boy, and you’d make it big.
