"Please, give the girl some time to grow!" fumed one of Gold Derby's readers when we dished the possibility of Miley Cyrus winning a Razzie Award as worst actress for The Last Song Miley Cyrus news "The Last Song." The poster identified as "Ashley" saw the film and claims "Miley Cyrus portrayed the role of an angsty teenager very well.… People are too harsh on her because she's 'Disney.'"

Do you agree? Pipe in at our poll below.

Over at Metacritc, the movie's score keeps tumbling lower – now it's only 35. The site's readers give it a score of 4.7.

Over at Salon.com, Stephanie Zacharek roars, "It's time to admit she cannot act …. This is a performance with all the elegance of a bitten fingernail." The New York Times says that acting "seems almost entirely beyond her."

However, over at Entertainment Weekly, Lisa Schwarzbaum calls the young star "a revelation," adding, "Miley Cyrus is a really interesting movie star in the making, with an intriguing echo-of-foghorn speaking voice, and a scuffed-up tomboyish physicality (in the Kristen Stewart mode) that sets her apart from daintier girls in her celebrity class."
