Hannah Montana is living the rock star dream, with cool concerts, lots of limos and a huge closet full of the latest styles. And nobody knows that underneath all the glitz 'n' glamour she's simply sweet Miley Stewart. Y'all won't believe the hilarious things she does to keep her celebrity secret while navigating the challenges of homework, crushes and being accepted into the local social scene. It all works out though because this chick totally rocks!


You know how there are TV series DVD box sets out there which will look good on your display shelves. So why would anyone want to own this Disney Channel series single-disc DVD which only contains four episodes of the teenage drama?

We are guessing that parents will be buying this for their kids to pacify them during those short school holidays. It also helps that the kids are fans of Hannah Montana. “Hannah who?” we hear you ask. If you watch Disney Channel regularly at home, you won’t find this sensational pop star unfamiliar.

Here’s how the story goes: The 14-year-old rock star leads a double life. Behind the blonde hair, the make-up and the glamour is a typical high school student who has your usual teenage problems like cliques, crushes and pressures.

The 92-minute disc contains four episodes including the pilot episode “Lily, Do You Want to Know a Secret”, “Miley Get Your Gum”, “Money for Nothing, Guilt for Free” and “I Can’t Make You Love Hannah if You Don’t”. And in your good old Disney fashion, the episodes play out wholesomely and actually milked quite a few chuckles out of us. Both adults and kids will have a pleasant one and a half hours watching the four short episodes. Sharp viewers will also spot High School Musical’s Corbin Bleu cameos in one of the segments.

14-year-old Miley Cyrus plays the titular character with the right amount of spunk and humor, while the goofy Mitchel Musso and the charismatic Emily Osment play her best friends. Musician Billy Ray Cyrus (real-life father of Miley’s) also has a part as Hannah’s father cum artiste manager.

Each episode proceeds like your usual TV series, where two storylines involving different characters are presented. Cue canned laughter and spot-on one-liners, accompanied by cutesy teenage performances – and you’d have a fun time watching how Hannah’s double life secret is revealed to her friends, how she goes all out to beat her rivals in a charity fund-raising competition, how she tries to reject her Hannah-loving friend by chewing disgusting gum, and how she tries to go on a date with her crush.

Lightweight, fluffy stuff this is – but it makes for one easy-going viewing for everyone.


This Code 3 DVD contains a Hannah Montana Music Video "Best of Both Worlds", a five-minute Miley On Following Your Dreams featurette where the stars inspiringly talk about pursuing your dreams and Miley’s Audition Tapes, where you’ll get to see Cyrus being really good at speed talking in this five-minute clip.


The disc’s visual transfer makes you feel like you are watching a typical TV series, and there are 2.0 Stereo English, Japanese, Spanish and Portuguese audio tracks to choose from.
