A sharper eye on developing the themes and characters might have produced a compelling character drama but The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 2 is a good bit better than average. There aren't many sequels that can say that.

A satisfying sequel involves us in the ups and downs of four young women as they try to find themselves

Very much a loyal sequel to its predecessor, essentially showing that if it ain't broke, don't fix it.

The emotionally fragile foursome try out higher education for size, along with those transient pants. Sex And The UniverCity Meets My Big Fat Greek Shotgun Wedding.

Most sequels are worse than the originals. A few are better. Here's one that is exactly as good as the one that inspired it, and that's enough for me.

This movie is definitely not as good as the first as it seemed to lack showing the bonding moments that made these girls true friends.

You believe these four are friends now and will probably be friends when they're little old ladies.

Teenage girls (and women getting in touch with their inner teenager) will have a fine time...

Packed with emotions and the angst of growing up, "The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 2" fits an older audience than the first movie.

By ending it at number two, the filmmakers have insured that this series won't be subject to the laws of most franchises and grow shoddier as it creaks along.

It's a big story, one filled with enough life lessons and tears to come apart at the seams, but the good news is that it doesn't.

There's sex and the city (New York). But the most enjoyable girls-night-out movie of the summer deals with young, fledgling love.

Masterfully directed in cutting fashion by Sanaa Hamri--no scene seems to last more than a couple of minutes, and then the pants come into play--the story has been superbly brought to the screen by Elizabeth Chandler, and the four lead actresses are all t

Ann Brashares' novel is brought to life in this sequel with the same heart, earnestness and, let's face it, saccharine sweetness of the 2005 original.

I wasn't a film critic when the first one came out, which was a great excuse not to see it. However, I liked the sequel so much that I am running to the video store right now to rent it.

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.

Turns out to be a lot less tiresome than it sounds, aided by a wonderfully appealing cast and a strong message.

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.
