I think I like this one better than the first one...best girlfriend/chick flick movie...such great all around movie!
Alicia M. Justus
There is a gag reel, but most of the gags are flubbed lines, not too exciting either.

The impression that "The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 2" gives is that it's a bubbly, bright, and--for all intents and purposes--meaningless sequel to the first film. To my relief, it follows the example set by its predecessor, a surprisingly levelheaded friendship story. Four years after discovering a magically fitting pair of jeans, best friends Tibby Tomko-Rollins (Amber Tamblyn), Carmen Lowell (America Ferrera), Lena Kaligaris (Alexis Bledel), and Bridget Vreeland (Blake Lively) have returned for a second chapter that remains on perfectly equal ground with the first, focusing on coming-of-age issues like maturity, self-discovery, family, and love. Unoriginal ideas? Maybe so, but that doesn't mean they're any less effective. If anything, they make the film's message that much clearer. It helps that many of the girls' problems are based in reality--high school issues, like being pretty and popular, are pushed aside in favor of adult issues, like pregnancy scares and family crises.

If there's anything we learned from the first film, it's that the magic of the titular jeans was symbolic; by in large, the girls worked through their own ups and downs on their own, with no miraculous intervention other than their friendship with one another. We learn pretty much the same thing in this film, which sees each character facing new, more mature challenges. Let's begin with Carmen, who doubles as the film's bookend narrator. She now attends Yale, working as a stagehand for the theatre department. Her mother (Rachel Ticotin) has since remarried and is now pregnant with her second child. When Carmen's hopes of spending the summer with her friends are dashed, she decides to join a Shakespearian theater company in Vermont with a prima donna named Julia (Rachel Nichols).

First of all, it is certainly an interesting experience to be the only guy in the theater for a movie like "The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 2." At least I was not the oldest person there, and while that person was my date at least we could take comfort in knowing that we have both read all four of Ann Brashares' novels about the "Sisterhood," and therefore were entitled to be there with all the young folks. Screenwriter Elizabeth Chandler ("What a Girl Wants") is working mainly from the final book in the series, "Forever in Blue: The Fourth Summer of the Sisterhood," which means that Tibby (Amber Tamblyn) has a pregnancy scare in New York City, Carmen (America Ferrera) is doing a Shakespeare play in Vermont, Bee (Blake Lively) is on a archeological dig in Turkey, and Lena (Alexis Bledel) is drying to figure out how to draw a nude male model. However, some key elements from earlier novels are worked in the story, specifically Lena finding out Kostos is married and Bee meeting her grandmother from "The Second Summer of the Sisterhood," and Carmen's mother having a baby from "...Read more ›

Format: DVD
I started watching this with very low expectations. I figured it would be based on the fourth book, and I hated the fourth book, so, you know, not all that excited. I came out of it a totally happy person. It seems to me that the screenwriter took everything that was wrong with the fourth book and fixed it. True, I would have liked to see Win, but that's, imo, the only thing the movie really lacked. The acting was great, the chemistry was astounding (and here everyone was saying the girls didn't want to do this!), the storylines, amazing amazing amazing. Upon reading book 4, I was highly disappointed that they lost the pants, but now, watching the movie, I see why it had to happen.
Random comments:
-Alexis Bledel makes a much better Lena than a Rory. She's so much more natural as a quiet, down-to-earth girl, rather than Ms. Spoiled Rotten.
-LOVED Amber Tamblyn's acting, she's been the best part of both movies. Her and Brian are just too cute, and her 'miracle' moment was probably my favorite of the entire movie.
-Glad they kept Labor Coach Tibby in!
-Best lines? Tie between "And leave me in the middle of my life? God!" and "We are terrible at not loving each other." One hilarious, one sweet, both pretty much summarizing the entirety of this movie and real life.
I am not the type to EVER prefer a movie adaptation over a book. I always think the movies cheapen the written word. This is the one exception. Loved it, loved it, LOVED it.

This is actually the title of the fourth and last Ann Brashares book, which this film is in part based upon. The four friends who've been kept united through first a summer of separation and now college are now doing their first college summer apart. Their interests have also diverged and each member of the sisterhood but one has a love interest (or two) now.

Carmen (America Ferrera), who was hoping that the girls would all be together again for the summer, spent her year lost at Yale. When she realizes that everyone else has plans they hadn't told her about, she opts to go to a summer stock camp for young actors with her 'friend', Julia (Rachel Nichols). One of the Shakespearean actors in the company, Ian (Tom Wisdom) urges her to try out--and the former backstage girl actually gets a part.

Tibby (Amber Tamblyn), who was at NYU has to return for the summer because she didn't get her romantic comedy done. She and Brian (Leonardo Nam) take things to the next level with some interesting consequences.

When Lena (Alexis Bledel) attends her Bapi's funeral in Greece, she learns that Kostos (Michael Rady) is married. Devastated, she comes back to the RISD to art school despite her parents' wishes otherwise. She gets involved with Leo (Jesse Williams) a young male model.

Bridget (Blake Lively) is looking into the past. Before heading off for an archeology camp in Turkey, she discovers letters from her grandmother. She never knew the woman wrote her and this haunts her during the dig. She eventually returns home early to meet the woman she doesn't remember (Blythe Danner).

Overall, this is definitely a chick flick. But it's aimed at the younger crowd, the YA readers of this series.
