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

There's scant sisterhood or pants, but these chicas do travel.

It doesn't measure up to The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants. Which is sort of like saying Rocky V wasn't as good as Rocky IV. Sort of.

What had once seemed like a fresh alternative to the usual tween-girl movie has begun to fray.

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.

August 7, 2008
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.
August 7, 2008
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.

The movie equivalent of being patted on the shoulder by an encouraging high school guidance counselor and assured that you are doing just fine.

Even cynics might concede that, again, four capable actresses have pulled off a relatively rare thing: They've convinced us they're an honest-to-God movie sisterhood.

This is pure, escapist fun -- skepticism and naysaying are best left at home.
August 6, 2008
The saga of the well-worn jeans on the move continues to be a warm and pleasantly diverting tale.

Chandler's multilayered script, unusually thoughtful for a teen flick, returns again and again to the notion that friends are there to offer support.

It's a relief to go to the movies and see teenage girls acting like teenage girls, as opposed to grown women acting like teenage girls.
August 6, 2008
A sequel that actually improves, slightly, on the boy-crazy original.

The film ends by closing the door on future sequels, which is probably fine. Everyone here looks like they've learned their lesson and can now move on.

Sensitively directed by Sanaa Hamri, The Sister of the Traveling Pants 2 demonstrates that not only is sisterhood powerful, it can be awfully entertaining.

No matter how serious the subject matter, this is an unabashed fantasy for tweens and teens.

Members of the sisterhood are often getting upset for one baffling reason or another.

Their tear-jerking adventures [are] appealing to even the staunchest chick-lit antagonist.

There's a thin line between jeans that are well worn and jeans that are ratty and used up, and Traveling Pants 2 crosses that line.

August 6, 2008
You've got to admire a franchise targeted to adolescent girls that is hiply aware of its characters' humor and hankerings and isn't the least bit embarrassed by their smarts and achievements.

Resist if you dare.

Second time around, the magic jeans are an even better fit.

Like Sex and the City, this one is strictly for the already-converted.

August 5, 2008
It's hard to get too involved in the story lines, which unfold like four half-hour television series quilted together. And the stakes are generally low: Which hunk to choose?

August 5, 2008
The sisters can go their separate ways, no doubt keeping in touch by e-mail, and congratulating themselves on being infinitely better than the Ya-Ya Sisterhood.

Aren't these ladies too old for this?

You just wish it were a more comfortable fit.
August 5, 2008
Despite the flaws, the movie is reasonably pleasant most of the time. Some of that is leftover goodwill from the first film, but it is also a tribute to the four starring actresses.

A shapely sequel that retains much of the sparkle and warmth that made the original such a pleasant surprise.
August 1, 2008
With very little sex and very little city, The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 2 still seems a good bet to grab a sizable chunk of the underserved chick-flick demographic.
