The film is filled with positive messages ...

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 finale goes on and on, but the movie is nicely photographed and duly empowering, and should please the vast teen-girl audience for which it's intended.

The emotional story and fine acting are enough to make this a must-see movie for teen girls. The real surprise is that they can make a grown man cry.

It's heartening to see a movie about teenage girls that is concerned with serious questions and avoids the pettiness that filmmakers tend to ascribe to young women of that age.
June 1, 2005
Kudos to a movie that encourages girls -- and everyone else -- to accept their bodies, to forgive their friends and family and to live their lives to the fullest.
June 1, 2005
A sweet-natured journey not to a galaxy far, far away, but to someplace just as mysterious: the first tentative steps toward adulthood, taken here by four teenage girls.
June 1, 2005
The relationships and performances are strong and moving, with an effect both breezy-fun and profound.
June 1, 2005
The more roles that go to the fresh, charming, untabloidy Pants cast, the better.

Remarkably for a movie geared to teenage girls -- a market Hollywood typically panders to with glossy imitations of their lives -- The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants has no glaringly false moments.

Sometimes it is only slightly more mature than your average vehicle for the Olsen twins.

It's unfair to pigeonhole this meaningful human story in that genre, especially since it feels more real than some adult chick flicks. Besides, a good story is a good story.
June 1, 2005
It's warm, endearing, upbeat and fast-moving. It presents likable, goofy characters who confront adult issues that teens often face.

Working from a deft script by Delia Ephron, director Ken Kwapis labors hard so that guys won't cringe (too much) as four teen girls, of different body types, pass along the same pair of lucky jeans during a summer of love and loss.
June 1, 2005
Temperamentally, The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants is like the Beatles, with jeans. Cinematically, it is like the Ya-Yas, with Livestrong bracelets.
June 1, 2005
May be somewhat predictable, but it fits the needs of its young audience like a glove. Or a pair of magic jeans.
June 1, 2005
The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants plays to everybody's inner weepy teenage girl. And that's not such a bad thing.
June 1, 2005
It's the girly equivalent of a midsummer Bruckheimer extravaganza -- a roller-coaster ride to the edge of total (emotional, natch) devastation that makes the happy ending that much more reassuring and cozy.
June 1, 2005
What could have turned into a featherweight teenybopper movie matures into a lot more.
June 1, 2005
This is a movie about girls made for girls (and perhaps the occasional trusted mother or aunt). It doesn't care if not everyone likes it, and it's not about to change itself drastically in hopes that they do.
