  • The voice acting while Miley was in the Pirate custom was horrible, well, the overall acting was poor.

    The plot was unoriginal but the Jackson bit was good, so kudos to the writers, but the acting by many of the actors/actresses was horrible. The entire time that miley was inside the costum, her voice acting wasn't... good at all. Every time she spoke, it was suppose to be funny, but it sounded forced and her tone never changed, like a female version of Mircosoft Sam. Even the minor characters were outing her acting while she was in the costum. however outside of the pirate costum her acting was the same medicore acting you see from her every episode. the jackson bit with robbie was funny and they both had good acting. The plot, wasn't that origanal. Two friends try out for a job/sport and the one that wanted to try out for that job/sport didn't make the cut, but the other friend did. However, I have to praise Emily Osment on some acceptional acting throughout the episode.moreless
  • not a good episode, in my opinion...

    This is one of my least favorite episodes of Hannah Montana. Lilly and Miley decide to try out for the cheerleading team. Lilly tries out for the mascot while Miley wants to be a cheerleader. However, Miley became the mascot and Lilly was the cheerleader. It was a really stupid and unrealistic story. Seriously, we've seen that Miley is terrible will sports so why would she even try to be a cheerleader. The story just seemed unoriginal and unrealistic. Jackson and Billy Ray had some funny moments in the show, and that's the only good part of the episode. Overall, not a good episode.moreless
  • Mediocre

    Miley and Lilly want to spend more time together and so they try to become cheerleaders. But this fails when instead of being a cheerleader, Miley is the mascot. Meanwhile, Jackson tries to fix the sink, and Robbie will pay him to do so. But he ends up causing a great mess.

    The main plot wasn't that great, and neither was the subplot. Neither really made me laugh and both plots were relatively weak. Probably one of the weakest episodes of the series, I think, my grade for this is in the "D" range because I probably laughed at a couple thingsmoreless
  • Just never really feel in love with this episode from the first time that I saw it.

    Hannah does a performance of "Pumpin' Up the Party," and off stage she is busily trying to talk to Lilly about spending time together. Lilly asks what she is doing one day after school and Hannah says shes going to cheerleading auditions. Lilly accidentally walks on stage and it opens to the theme song.

    Robbie is late to a meeting, so he lets Jackson give a shot at easy money. Jackson thinks he is going to have it easy, but ends up in a wet catastrophe when Oliver stops by.

    At the auditions, after Miley has taught Lilly all that she can, Miley gives a standard performance and Lilly doesn't, until she decides to use skateboarding tricks without the skateboard. Lilly gets on the team and Miley gets to be a ..... mascot.

    Jackson thinks the sink is fixed until he tries the garbage disposal and Robbie gets a headful of Moo-shu pork on his head in the shower.

    Miley screws up at a game as a mascot and gets fired. Miley thinks Lilly should quit the team just because she got fired.

    A plumber stops by and tells Robbie that Jackson saved the whole house. Jackson does a "I didn't screw up" victory dance, meanwhile, Hannah blows off the Stones and encourages Lilly to keep on cheering.moreless
