Miley Cyrus Is ‘So Undercover’: Watch a Preview

Watch Video
Turns out, Miley Cyrus has a full-on comeback planned for the second half of 2012: new music, a return to the small screen and, as revealed yesterday, a starring role in the Warner Bros. action comedy So Undercover.

The fast-talking Cyrus stars as Molly Morris, a high school student-turned-private investigator who, as the trailer surmises, “isn’t like most teenaged girls.” At the same time though, the So Undercover clip reveals scenes that look quite familiar — a “requisite” makeover, a struggle to walk in heels and a first encounter with a boy who will surely thwart the protagonist’s plans. See: 1999′s Never Been Kissed, 2000′s Miss Congeniality and even 2004′s Mean Girls.

Do you think Miley will lend a fresh twist to the same girl-goes-undercover plot? Let us know in the comments, or on Facebook and Twitter.

    While it’s nice to see MIley Cyrus ditching her “look at me I’m all grown up” attitude that plagued her during the time her last album came out and her last big screen venture “LOL” in favor of a more harmless movie, I just can’t help but think who would actually watch this? It’s set in college but I can’t see college students watching this. I don’t see parents dragging their little kids to see this either. I feel like it represents exactly where Miley Cyrus is at this point in her career. I guess time will tell. Judging from the trailer it doesn’t look anywhere as good as “Never Been Kissed,” “Mean Girls” or “Miss Congeniality.”
