Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 2


This will be a lackluster review simply because I do NOT fit the demographic. I doubt if I was EVER a "tween" so I don't think this would ever have appealed to me.

As you can see from the title, this is the second installment from a novel by Ann Brashares. It features four young gals of various body types, any one of whom, through some sort of fantastical device, can fit into a unique pair of blue jeans. They send it back and forth as each needs it to intervene with some personal crisis or other.

The four actresses, reprising their roles from Part 1, are:
  • Alexis Bledel - who capably played the daughter in "Gilmore Girls."
  • America Ferrera - the coyote who smuggled the little boy across the border in "Under the Same Moon."
  • Blake Lively - "Gossip Girl."
  • Amber Tamblyn - "Joan of Arcadia." (She's Russ Tamblyn's daughter.)

The movie is contrived, episodic, fragmented and not involving. Tamblyn is the only one who delivered her lines with any sense of comedy or sarcasm. She has already proven her chops in earlier work, so that's no surprise.

In my opinion, the piece is mostly harmless...
