"Hannah Montana-Pop Star Profile" takes four episodes of the highly popular Disney Channel series and boxes them into one disc which includes a brief feature on Miley Cyrus (Hannah/Miley Stewart) and a concert performance from the series. The four episodes focus on the relationship between Hannah and her secret crush, Jake Ryan (Cody Linley). For those unaware, Miley is the daughter of Billy Ray Cyrus of "Achy Breaky Heart" fame. Sure, that was his first and biggest hit, but there's a whole lot more to the man than that one song. He struggled for a long time with his band in order to make it. Unfortunately the Nashville machine destroyed a wonderful star before he really ever got started with his commercial success. Those years of struggle (and some solid values) bleed through on this DVD and the TV series as a whole. Cyrus' daughter doesn't dress or act like a tramp, respects her dad and other elders (as witnessed with her interaction with the legendary Dolly Parton who shows up as her aunt on one of the episodes), and is generally a very good kid. That, my friend, is rare in Hollywood these days.
The tween and early teen stars of the show are actually very fun to watch, and pull off some very comedic moments for kids and adults without having to make vulgar remarks or resort to sophomoric humor to get a laugh. Yes, it can get silly and giggly at times, but that's what life is like for youngsters between the ages of ten and fourteen. Cast members include Emily Osment (Lilly), Mitchel Musso (Oliver), Billy Ray Cyrus (Robbie) and Jason Earles as Miley's goofy brother, Jackson.
To top things off, the music featured in the series is actually very good pop music. It's clean, inoffensive pop that's never boring. Heck, I catch myself singing "Best Of Both Worlds" sometimes.
