Ann Brashares' best-selling novel for young adults comes to the big screen in this engaging comedy drama. Carmen (America Ferrera), Bridget (Blake Lively), Lena (Alexis Bledel), and Tibby (Amber Tamblyn) are four teenage girls who have been close friends since they were babies (and even before -- their mothers all knew each other from attending the same prenatal exercise class). However, fate has dictated that for the first time ever the young women will be spending their summer apart -- Carmen will be visiting her father, whom she hasn't seen in years, Lena will be visiting her grandparents in Greece, Bridget is attending a soccer camp in Mexico, while Tibby is stuck working at a discount store. A few days before Carmen, Lena, and Bridget leave, the four go shopping, and while at a thrift shop they discover an unusual pair of blue jeans that, despite the fact they're all of different height and weight, fits all four women perfectly. The girls buy the jeans and pledge to each look after them for a week at a time, hoping they'll bring one another good luck as the girls deal with a variety of new life experiences, both good and bad. ~ Mark Deming, All Movie Guide

Fancy "Pants" by talltale October 13, 2005 - 7:10 AM PDT

A chick flick weepie that had us two guys, yup, weeping periodically and going ga-ga over the gorgeous Greek scenery, SISTERHOOD OF THE TRAVELING PANTS is more enjoyable that it has any right to be, given the seemingly silly "fantasy pants" angle. Yet the pants make a surprisingly good symbol of women's commonality and solidarity.

More important, the direction is fast and bright, the performances are pleasant, and the theme of growing up and taking responsibility for your life is always a worthwhile one--if seldom given as enjoyable (if facile) a toss as it is here. A very good family film, especially if there are high school teens in the home, "Traveling Pants" is a movie even dad might enjoy. He and junior could certainly learn a few things, if their eyes and ears stay open. There's a lot for the family to discuss here, post-viewing, too.
