DETAILED STORYLINE
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Drama - "The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants" is a drama about life and friendship between teen girls. It contains a few uplifting moments and several sad moments so you will want to bring tissues. For those who have read the book, I've been told that it follows the book pretty closely.

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Good Although targeted primarily for girls in the 12-to-19-year old range, there's enough truth about friendship, love, and life in "The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants" to offer solid entertainment to almost anyone who gives it a chance. It's stronger than most teen girls' bonding movies and deserves to be seen on merit, not just because its lineage includes a best-selling book.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Good The role played by the jeans in all of these stories is, it must be said, more as a witness than as a participant, sometimes from a vantage point draped over a chair near a bed. But no, the PG-rated movie isn't overloaded with sex, and its values are in the right place.

USA Today Full Review
Good It's heartening to see a movie about teenage girls that is concerned with serious questions and avoids the pettiness that filmmakers tend to ascribe to young women of that age. This "Sisterhood" has more substance than the airheads in "Mean Girls" and is a lot more engaging than the "Ya-Ya's."

D ETAILED S TORYLINE
Introduced as babies who were born to mothers who met in a prenatal aerobics class, the four grew up together and developed an enduring bond despite their distinctly different emerging personalities. Now, after years of sharing every triumph and loss, every wild idea and secret fear with the laughter and love of true friends, these four young women couldn't be closer… except that they're about to be separated as their lives take them in different directions for the first time.

Introspective and occasionally volatile Carmen (AMERICA FERRERA) is looking forward to spending quality time with her out-of-state dad, whom she hasn't seen much since he divorced her mother years ago; super-confident star athlete Bridget (BLAKE LIVELY) is heading for a soccer camp in Mexico; soft-spoken Lena (ALEXIS BLEDEL), a gifted artist as beautiful as her drawings, is set to discover her heritage – and an unexpected romance – on a trip to her grandparents' home in Greece; and sharp-witted rebel Tibby (AMBER TAMBLYN) will reluctantly remain in town, stocking shelves at the local discount store while working on her pet project, a video "suckumentary” to expose what she sees as the banality of everyday life.

On a shopping trip together the day before their paths diverge, the friends find a pair of thrift-shop jeans that amazingly fits and flatters each one of them perfectly, even though they are four young women of very different shapes and sizes. It seems these pants are meant for sharing and that gives Carmen, Bridget, Lena and Tibby a wonderful idea. They decide to use the pants as a way of keeping in touch during the months ahead, each one wearing them for a week to see what luck they bring before mailing them on to the next.

In this unique way, though miles apart, the four still experience the challenges and surprises of life as they always have – together – in a summer they'll never forget.
