This week we enter a world of superstars, shoe fights with Tyra Banks, and so many tropes it'll make your head spin...or your overalls ride up.

You would think a movie about a "world famous musician would have better you But we digress. The only REAL song in this movie is of course the one by Taylor Swift. Everything else kind of sucks. Don't even get us started on the "Honkey Tonk...whatever". *insert eye roll here*


She has the best of both worlds... now, she has to pick just one.

  1. The Hoedown Throwdown scene shows Miley's little sister Noah Cyrus dancing by Miley's grandmother in the film.

  2. At $17.4 million, it had the biggest opening-day gross ever for a live-action G-rated movie.

  3. Actors Miley Cyrus and Billy Ray Cyrus expected the film to be released in theaters, not on Disney Channel as a Disney Channel Original Movie. Ultimately, they didn't want the movie to be an extra-long regular episode of the TV series.

  4. One day on set, Miley Cyrus had just finished shooting a scene next to a Ferris Wheel when high winds blew a piece of lighting equipment onto the Ferris Wheel, injuring several extras.

  5. Actors Taylor Swift and Lucas Till dated in real life and during this movie until September 2009.
