As the country takes a moment to remember John F. Kennedy on the 50th anniversary of his assassination, we decided to look back on his last impacting in pop culture. In the five decades since his death, JFK’s story has been told countless times both on the big screen and the small one. Whether it’s a look at the younger years, like Patrick Dempsey in the TV movie, JFK: Restless Youth, or a controversial portrayal of his presidency, such as The Kennedys starring Greg Kinnear, actors have not shied away from taking JFK’s iconic look and thick Massachusetts accent.

The Last Song, Miley Cyrus‘ big dramatic break from Hannah Montana-hood, hopes to join such Nicholas Sparks adaptations as Dear John and The Notebook in the hit romance hall of fame. But judging from advance reviews, it looks more likely to follow Mariah Carey‘s Glitter out the pop-star-movie poop-chute, with Salon saying the 17-year-old is “finally old enough to hate” and “cannot act.” We have to admit the clip above doesn’t look too promising, with a mud-caked Miley contorting her face and keeping it that way as she asks “where are we, Graceland?” and grins psychotically at real life boyfriend Liam Hemsworth‘s on-screen mother. Roger Ebert says Miley fans will give it four stars in his two-and-a-half star review, but will there be enough tearjerking tweens to make The Last Song a hit?
