It sounds like it should be incredibly trite, but it never really is, despite a few alarming dips into the waters of cliché. Strong performances from the four leads carry a well-crafted film along to its emotional but never quite poignant ending.

Pop moviemaking aimed towards an underserved demographic, but one respects its approach in assuming its audience is at least intelligent and emotionally mature.

Equal parts touching and corny, the film is a sentimental teen girl summer adventure that has enough genuine moments to rise above its familiar feeling of plain old recycled clothing.

For the most part, director Ken Kwapis and screenwriters Delia Ephron and Elizabeth Chandler (who adapted Ann Brashares' novel) keep things tart, dry-eyed and briskly moving.

Four friends on a quest to find something, only to realize that anything resembling an answer is to be found in the journey itself, in their friendships, and in themselves.

Sisterhood is one of those rare teen movies that not only encapsulates the hazards of growing up but allows an adult audience to relate to and enjoy instead of endure.

The film is filled with positive messages ...

Sisterhood may not be much more than a story about girlfriends growing up, and it's not going to score any points for edginess, but it's entertaining in a low-key, non-threatening kind of way.

The cinema has seen plenty of coming-of-age tales over the decades, but few are as sweet and well-constructed as this take on the popular Ann Brashares novel.

It's all a bit simplistic, but it's harmless enough and goes down smoothly. I rather enjoyed it.

It sounds like a touchy-feely Gap commercial, but this fantastical premise jars with a refreshingly realistic look at girls making the tricky transition to womanhood.

The cast lend a great deal of credibility to the material and director Ken Kwapis knows when to cut away from a scene when it carries the potential for shmaltz.

That a movie about pants features a story that skirts formula is an irony worth savoring.

If you want to get a sense of how this differs from its immediate competition, Lords of Dogtown, look no further than the roles played in both by America Ferrara.
