Four strong performances from four young actresses aside, there's nothing here that you haven't seen before, better, and with a lot more sincerity.

[It] isn't awful -- it beats any of the recent Hilary Duff films like a gong -- but it is the kind of slick, flashy thing that may look okay for a few days, only to be thrown in the back of the closet and forgotten forever.

[A] training-bra of a flick designed to indoctrinate tweens with the estrogen-drenched sappiness of 'women's pop culture'...
June 4, 2005
The filmmakers just can't resist sentiment, and seem happy to wallow in corny humour, predictable sappiness and heavy-handed moralising.

This is lazy, lazy storytelling.

Brashares' best-selling teen novel comes to the screen a little frayed and shopworn, but the performances are a custom fit.

The Sisterhood of Traveling Pants is ideal for a mother-daughter or best-friends-forever cinema excursion, but it may not be the most satisfying two hours for the rest of the movie-going public.

A watchable if altogether predictable film that only skims the emotional surface of its episodic narrative.

This isn't a bad movie or an insulting one, but it is awfully simple, and not particularly interesting for those of us out of its demographic.

Unashamedly aimed at its pre-teen target market, who will probably in all fairness, really enjoy it.

June 1, 2005
Fortunately for this sentimental coming-of-age story based on the young-adult novel by Ann Brashares and directed by Ken Kwapis, its target audience is youthful enough that the cliches may still retain a hint of freshness.

Even after some shameless audience manipulation, we still don't know enough about any of them to really care about them.

The film is so obviously geared to manipulate the viewer that it's hard not to feel a bit like one of Mr. Pavlov's dogs.

It took a bit to figure out what's stashed in the back pocket of The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants - little teen-sized pieces of movie cliche.

To paraphrase Chris Rock, nobody had me in mind when they made this movie.
June 1, 2005
The turns that each of these stories take are hardly surprising, and most of co-screenwriters Elizabeth Chandler and Delia Ephron's attempts at humor fall flat.
