Having been apart all year, their plans for the summer will take them even further along separate paths as each one experiences the freedom, love, choices, and challenging life lessons that mark their individual journeys toward adulthood. Now, it will take more than a hurried note or even a treasured pair of pants passed back and forth among them to keep their lives connected. (Warner Bros.) Expand

  1. The four stars of Sisterhood are back for this smart, confident second act, based on novels by Anne Brashares.
  2. 75
    As chick flicks go, this is one men can attend with the expectation that they might just enjoy experiencing two hours alongside these down-to-earth, appealing characters.
  3. The resulting drama is more deeply felt than it is deep. But I can't think of another film so frankly dealing with what we expect from friendship, so tenderly showing how friends can fail in one area, yet be there in another.
  4. This sequel improves on the 2005 original about four friends.
  5. Reviewed by: Claudia Puig

    A warm and pleasantly diverting tale.
  6. 63
    Demonstrates that not only is sisterhood powerful, it can be awfully entertaining.
  7. The only genuine moments of emotion come not from the lead actresses but from that great trouper Blythe Danner.

    I loved the first movie! I was surprised that I loved the second movie just as much being that sequels are usually never as good as theI loved the first movie! I was surprised that I loved the second movie just as much being that sequels are usually never as good as the original. What I particularly love most are the 4 lead the actresses. I think they are perfect together, like real lifelong best friends. I myself have 3 best friends, and I can almost compare theirs and my personalities and trials to these 4 girls. It's like Brashares captured some of my life and put it in a book, and then Warner Bros. put it in a movie. I enjoy it every time I watch it, and my 3 girlfriends and I watch it again and again as well. Expand

    Although Tibby(Amber Tamblyn) spends the night with her boyfriend like a "very special episode" of "The Facts of Life", and Lena(Alexis Although Tibby(Amber Tamblyn) spends the night with her boyfriend like a "very special episode" of "The Facts of Life", and Lena(Alexis Bledel) dates the nude model from her life drawing class, these girls, along with Carmen(America Ferrera) and Bridget(Blake Lively), are nice girls, who wouldn't act like total sluts for the promise of a free t-shirt. This is not "The Sisterhood of the Traveling Thong". They're wholesome, but not cloyingly so, like a Christian's idea of a wholesome girl. The pants come off from time to time, and not just for the sole purpose of mailing the denim talisman to the next girl. Before the sisterhood reconvene in Greece, the girls go solo. The girls go wild largely stateside, except for Bridget, who goes wild in Turkey. So who's your favorite nubile? Mine is Carmen. Kicking it back home in New Haven(ahem, ahem; Yale), the "Natalie" of the bunch is comfortable at first with being the wind beneath Julie's wings when she follows the drama major to a Vermont theater camp, but the machinations of the plot allows the slightly chunky girl to win the lead in a Shakespearan play, tailor-made for an actress with Rachel Nichols' classical good looks. If you regard Carmen's success as a matter of topsy-turvy proportions, the film just lured you in its trap, by trumping your ideology with its own ideology. Just remember who won an Emmy last year for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series; America Ferrera, that's who, for her work on ABC's "Ugly Betty". The film quiety implies that Carmen didn't upset the hierarchy by beating out Julie for the lead role, she put it back in order. Tibby's narrative, on the other hand, would have been more interesting had she been forced to make a decision about her potential destiny with motherhood, but practically all the laughs belong to the "Joan of Arcadia" alumnist, with the exception of Lena's claim that she likes dinner. That's debatable. "The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants" is like Secret deodorant, "Strong enough for a man, but made for a woman." Expand

    Doesnt anybody realize that this is just a successor to a marketing ploy? Doesn't anybody see through transparent plots anymore? Doesnt anybody realize that this is just a successor to a marketing ploy? Doesn't anybody see through transparent plots anymore? "Traveling pants" Basically is he word that is used to cover up "buying the material", thus, traveling pants was the overall name for such a lame marketing story. Expand
