Movie Info

Based on Ann Brashares' best-selling series of novels about four young women who share an unbreakable bond through the unpredictable events of their lives, "The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 2" catches up with Tibby, Carmen, Bridget and Lena in the months following their first year of college. Having been apart all year, their plans for the summer will take them even further along separate paths as each experiences the freedom, love, choices and challenging life lessons that mark their individual journeys toward adulthood. Now, it will take more than a hurried note or even a treasured pair of pants passed back and forth among them to keep their lives connected.

    Like Gossip Girl and Ugly Betty, but not as smart.

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

    Perhaps, this reviewer is mellowing with age. So, Ugly Betty, Gossip Girl, Joan of Arcadia and a Gilmore Girl all miraculously fit into the same pair of jeans (not all at once, of course, because that would just be silly). And though this would not usually be cause for celebration among moviegoers, the premise (chiefly due to casting, some smart source material, and taking a bullseye shot at the teenage girl demographic) made for an engaging movie about life, love, and loss some three years ago…end of story. This said, resurrecting the Sisterhood would have to go a long way to impress your terminally cynical reviewer. But, oddly enough, this second go-round does just that, spooning out equal amounts of four intertwined stories to rich effect. In this PG-13 sequel to the teen drama, four lifelong friends (Ferrera, Tamblyn, Alexis Bledel, Blake Lively) embark on separate paths for their first year of college and the summer beyond. In most movies of this ilk, the young thespians usually need do nothing more than remember their lines, hit their marks, and look pretty. This acting foursome, however, brings much more to the table. Every character plays an integral part and Ferrera, Tamblyn, Bledel, and Lively each bring a clear definition to what very well could have been reduced to stock characters in other actors’ hands. A long third act starts to drag the film down, but the fact that all involved chose not to go for a typical Hollywood ending redeems any time-checking on the moviegoer’s part. Bottom line: A good fit.
