USA Today mentioned that the songs in the film (particularly "Nobody's Perfect" and "Girls' Night Out") are "delivered with a glib flirtatiousness that offsets their generically sensitive and empowering messages."
The Boston Globe said that Miley Cyrus "has boundless energy, a wardrobe that won't quit, and enough real teenager in her to come across as more than a mere Disney creation."
Los Angeles Times Jan Stuart from the Los Angeles Times commented about the film's 3D effects, writing: "The 3-D camera throws drumsticks and confetti in our faces, but the technical effects seem superfluous to the star's bona-fide energy."
However, some of the reviews were less than positive.
In the San Francisco Chronicle's review of the film: "If it wasn't for the stellar 3-D effects, there wouldn't be much to stop this hastily produced film from heading straight to DVD. But the scene at the end where all the confetti comes flying out and the pyrotechnics go off? Even I was willing to let out a little scream for that."
On Rotten Tomates, the movie was given a rating of 72% with an average rating of 6\10 based on 43 reviews. According to the critics' consensus: "This high-energy concert film should please Cyrus' rabid pre-teen fan base -- and may come as a pleasant surprise for parents."
