Last SongThe latest film in the Nicholas Sparks hit parade, 'The Last Song' marks a departure from the author's previous movie adaptations, which include 'The Notebook,' 'Nights in Rodanthe' and 'Dear John.' Don't get us wrong: It's still an unlikely romance. There's still an inevitable death. And there's that proximity to the water. But this one's different because it marks the best-selling author's first attempt at screenwriting.

Turns out Sparks wrote both the novel and the screenplay (a credit he shares with Jeff Van Wie) with Miley Cyrus specifically in mind. In it, the erstwhile Hannah Montana plays Veronica "Ronnie" Miller, an angry New York City teen with a chip on her shoulder and a police record to prove it. So it is with extreme angst and reluctance that the onetime piano prodigy, along with her plucky and precocious little brother (played by Bobby Coleman), are sent to stay with her estranged father (Greg Kinnear) at the Georgia coast for the summer.
