There’s one family-unfriendly scene in Hannah Montana: Best of Both Worlds Concert; X rated scenes or cursing, you ask? Not quite. You see, the film was called out by the Consumer Union (which publishes the Consumer Reports) as being a bad influence to children because of…wait for it…shots of actors behind the wheel but without seatbelts! You heard us right. Miley and her dad forget to wear seatbelts during a particular scene in the film, causing a media uproar. Billy Ray Cyrus was forced to apologize. CNN reports:

“We got caught up in the moment of filming, and we made a mistake and forgot to buckle our seat belts,” the country music star said Wednesday on People magazine’s Web site. “Seat belt safety is extremely important.”

Consumer Reports magazine had noticed that the Cyruses were not wearing seat belts as they rode in the back of a Range Rover during Disney’s “Hannah Montana/Miley Cyrus: Best of Both Worlds Concert.”

Don Mays, the director of product safety at Consumers Union, which publishes Yonkers-based Consumer Reports, said Wednesday, “We applaud the Cyrus family for recognizing that wearing seat belts in rear seats is essential.”

Catch a behind the scenes clip of Miley with the Jonas Brothers. They might not even be wearing seatbelts!
