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.

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.

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.

The movie equivalent of being patted on the shoulder by an encouraging high school guidance counselor and assured that you are doing just fine.

Even cynics might concede that, again, four capable actresses have pulled off a relatively rare thing: They've convinced us they're an honest-to-God movie sisterhood.

Chandler's multilayered script, unusually thoughtful for a teen flick, returns again and again to the notion that friends are there to offer support.

It's a relief to go to the movies and see teenage girls acting like teenage girls, as opposed to grown women acting like teenage girls.

The film ends by closing the door on future sequels, which is probably fine. Everyone here looks like they've learned their lesson and can now move on.

There's a thin line between jeans that are well worn and jeans that are ratty and used up, and Traveling Pants 2 crosses that line.

You've got to admire a franchise targeted to adolescent girls that is hiply aware of its characters' humor and hankerings and isn't the least bit embarrassed by their smarts and achievements.

It's hard to get too involved in the story lines, which unfold like four half-hour television series quilted together. And the stakes are generally low: Which hunk to choose?

The sisters can go their separate ways, no doubt keeping in touch by e-mail, and congratulating themselves on being infinitely better than the Ya-Ya Sisterhood.

Despite the flaws, the movie is reasonably pleasant most of the time. Some of that is leftover goodwill from the first film, but it is also a tribute to the four starring actresses.

With very little sex and very little city, The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 2 still seems a good bet to grab a sizable chunk of the underserved chick-flick demographic.
