You believe these four are friends now and will probably be friends when they're little old ladies.

It doesn't measure up to The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants. Which is sort of like saying Rocky V wasn't as good as Rocky IV. Sort of.

What had once seemed like a fresh alternative to the usual tween-girl movie has begun to fray.

Like its predecessor, Sisterhood 2 is based on two radical ideas: namely, that young women's stories are about more than the pursuit of men, and that happiness isn't something someone else gives you -- it's something you have to find for yourself.

Turns out to be a lot less tiresome than it sounds, aided by a wonderfully appealing cast and a strong message.

Screenwriter Elizabeth Chandler gracefully condenses three of Ann Brashares's best-selling teen novels, striking the right balance between humor and pathos as the characters cope with jealousy, heartbreak, family conflicts, and a pregnancy scare.

A sharper eye on developing the themes and characters might have produced a compelling character drama but The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 2 is a good bit better than average. There aren't many sequels that can say that.

A satisfying sequel involves us in the ups and downs of four young women as they try to find themselves

A good fit for its audience.

Very much a loyal sequel to its predecessor, essentially showing that if it ain't broke, don't fix it.

The emotionally fragile foursome try out higher education for size, along with those transient pants. Sex And The UniverCity Meets My Big Fat Greek Shotgun Wedding.

Traveling Pants 2 offers more of the same and, I'm afraid, more of the same and more of the same.

Most sequels are worse than the originals. A few are better. Here's one that is exactly as good as the one that inspired it, and that's enough for me.

This movie is definitely not as good as the first as it seemed to lack showing the bonding moments that made these girls true friends.

I imagine if I were a woman, this movie would receive a very favorable review. However, I'm just a fat guy from Ohio.

It's a film that probably will please its targeted viewer more than it did me.

Packed with emotions and the angst of growing up, "The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 2" fits an older audience than the first movie.

By ending it at number two, the filmmakers have insured that this series won't be subject to the laws of most franchises and grow shoddier as it creaks along.

America Ferrera projects such star power here that I felt cheated when the camera moved to other characters. The rest of the film seemed to drag for me.

It's a big story, one filled with enough life lessons and tears to come apart at the seams, but the good news is that it doesn't.

There's sex and the city (New York). But the most enjoyable girls-night-out movie of the summer deals with young, fledgling love.

There's scant sisterhood or pants, but these chicas do travel.

The 'Sisterhood' movies are a guilty pleasure of mine. I love all of the different stories and they always cast beautiful men.
