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.

I thouroughly enjoyed this movie. I took a while to accept the fact that the stories where different to the fantastic book. For example, Lena had a sister, Kostos and her didn't engage in a loving relationship until a short time before she left, and many things were left out at the soccer camp scenario. However, with those things aside, it was a hugely enjoyable film. I cried in the book and the movie but it was uplifting at the same time. It was excellent.
I saw this when it first can out. I really liked the movie, it'll make you laugh, cry, and appreciate friendship. I suggest you read the books first, there are some differences from the film and the novels, but all in all, I would watch it time and time again!
I finished the book in the morning & watched the DVD that afternoon. The 4 stories were so much better in the book. I would love to know why the travels differ from the book. The stories/adventures were more believeable. At least Lena's grandma was more likeable in the book, maybe because she reminded me of how my grandma was. Tibby's love interest wasn't EVEN in the movie.
The best movie I have ever seen. It deels with all the problems that teens face in such a way that makes it very special! I walked out of the movie crying because it is so real and so true. This movie is a real treasure!
I was a fan of the books and was slightly skeptical about the movie at first. It is a slightly different storyline than the first book, but it was great. The cast in the movie really seemed to fit the way I'd imagined the characters. I really liked the movie and the first thing I thought when it was over is- I hope they make the second and third books into movies too.
The Sisterhood Of The Traveling Pants delt with problems kids and teens really do face. The deal with losing someone of cancer and finally finding out that your not mad at your divorced parents for getting remarried your mad at yourself. And also they deal with the most beatiful thing in life...... love.
The sisterhood of the traveling pants was ok. some parts were well done, others not well done. Some books made into movies suck, but this one was pretty good. I reccomend this movie, but I highly suggest reading the book before seeing the movie. All in all, i liked this movie. On a scale of 1 to 10, I give this movie a 7.
I think it is great and I relate to alot of the stuff... I saw it with a bunch of my friends and by the end of the movie we were crying...it is really good!
Came quickly, and was a great movie! An awesome chick flick to watch with all your girlfriends! Teaches you a lot about friendship and has a happy ending!
I'm 25 and was afraid the movie would be too "teenagerish" for me, but it was not. I would suggest that people into their fifties would enjoy this movie. It didn't matter which girl they were featuring, you wanted to see more. All except Bridget. I liked the idea behind her story, but the way they handled it left me cold. Carmen, Lena, and Tibby though were gripping. I just hope they have a sequel. Trust me, you'll want to join this sisterhood.
Okay, first off this series is da bomb diggidi bomb bomb, and the movie needs a sequel, that should explain it.
When I first read the sisterhood of the traveling pants series, I fell in love with the stories of friendship and growth portrayed by author Anne Brashares. The movie, although not perfectly adapted, is a fitting portrait of the first book's most memorable moments. I saw it with three of my best friends, and it inspired us to begin our own sisterhood... yes, we even have the pants. My kudos also go out to Amber Tamblyn for an awesome performance-- she is an extremely talented actress who undoubtedly has a successful future in acting ahead of her.
Okay, if you read the book like I did, you may be a little disapointed. It doesn't follow everything, but it does a pretty good job, as far as book adaptations go. It just bugged me that they left out Lena's sister and Bridget's brother. Also the ending is tweaked a bit from the book, but overall it is a good movie. I would reccomend it, but don't expect it follow the book exactly.
This was a fanastic movie, I have to admit (and I'm a guy that was dragged to see it.) I thought it was going to be overly chick-flicky going in to see it. But, it was a wonderful mix of humor, drama and the occassional chick-flick cliches. It made me laugh and (I'll admit it) cry. The young cast puts on an impeccable performance that delivers the realism of the four girls' stories. (Especially America.) It's a must see.
