Turns out Saved by the Bell was subtle! Father-daughter team Billy Ray and Miley Cyrus star as a dad and daughter, but stop those achy-breaky hearts midflutter — Hannah Montana is Miley’s show. She plays a normal California tween whose alter ego is famous pop star Hannah Montana (a distant relation, one assumes, to Amelia Bedelia). Cyrus the Elder has an easy touch amid all the screeching, squealing, and lessons quickly learned. Each of the kids is fine, especially Emily Osment (Haley Joel’s sister) as Miley’s wacky best friend, Lilly — a sort of Kimmy Gibbler redux.
