I took my sister to see [I]The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants[/i] so I wouldn't feel too, well, unmanly, so I made it seem like I [I]had[/i] to take her. For her sake, you know? The reviews were just too good for me to pass up! Even with her, I felt really out of place. There were very few guys in the auditorium, so really, towards the end, I'm sitting in a theatre with tears rolling out of my eyes surrounded by a bunch of crying women. Fun stuff. So anyway, [I]The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants[/i] is about a group of four young women, who each go in different paths for a summer, and share a pair of jeans that somehow fits each of them perfectly for the summer. One goes to Greece, one to Mexico to play soccer, one to see her father a few states away, and the last one stays at home to make a documentary. The acting by most everyone is amazing, and all are equally beautiful. So if you're a guy, girl, both, neither, whatever, check [I]The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants[/i] out. It's a great story with characters that no matter who you are, you can relate to in some way or another.
[I]Apres Vous[/i] is a delightful French comedy about Antoine, who rescues Louis from hanging himself in a park one night, and feels obligated to help him get his life back together. To do this, he gives him a place to stay, helps him get a job, and finds the love of his life and tries to get them back together. Antoine's a good man, but nothing seems to go right in his quest to help poor Louis out. [I]Apres Vous[/i]'s a really funny film, although kind of slow at spots. The actors are all great, and the chemistry between all the leads, including the love interest, Blanche, is even better.
