ReviewSource James Berardinelli's ReelViews
Review I am unquestionably not a member of the target demographic for Ken Kwapis' (He Said, She Said) The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, but that didn't prevent me from enjoying it. Although there's plenty of manipulation to be found in this motion picture, that doesn't obscure the inherent humanity of the characters and the sense of emotional honesty that underlies their circumstances. Plus, the film features four strong leading performances from up-and-coming actresses who, at least from the evidence presented here, deserve to become stars. The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants contains its share of flaws, but they are not significant enough to mute my enthusiasm for it.

Review Four teenage girls in a clothing store, trying on things, kidding around, giggling. Girls of four different sizes and shapes. What makes them all want to try on the same pair of pre-owned jeans? And why are the jeans a perfect fit all four times? It's the summer before the girls begin their senior year in high school, and all four have big summer plans...Because the jeans magically fit them all, and perhaps because they all saw "Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood," they come up with a plan: Each girl will wear the jeans for a week and then FedEx them to the next on the list...The movie, like "Mystic Pizza" (1988), assembles a group of talented young actresses who have already done good work separately and now participate in a kind of showcase. America Ferrera (whose "Real Women Have Curves" remains one of the best recent coming-of-age films) plays Carmen, who lives with her Puerto Rican mother and is thrilled to be spending the summer with her absentee non-Puerto Rican father. Alexis Bledel, who struck entirely different notes in "Sin City," is Lena, off to visit her grandparents and other relatives on a Greek island...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.

The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants contains its share of flaws, but they are not significant enough to mute my enthusiasm for it...Does The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants have cross-over potential? Or, to put it another way, will it appeal to those who are not fans of the books? That's debatable, not because the movie isn't strong enough to win new adherents, but because it's unclear how many who are not members of the book-loving crowd will give it a chance. 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 (like Now and Then and Foxfire) and deserves to be seen on merit, not just because its lineage includes a best-selling book.

Quotes
Christy Lemire, Associated Press A rare movie that women of any age will appreciate.
Joel Siegel, Good Morning America A unique and uniquely wonderful coming-of-age film for girls and young women.
Peter Travers, Rolling Stone The cast shines.
Sara Brady, Premiere ...succeeds on the strength of the four actresses, first and foremost America Ferrera, who beautifully essays the role of narrator Carmen.
Scott Moore, The Washington Post The emotional story and fine acting are enough to make this a must-see movie for teen girls. The real surprise is that they can make a grown man cry.
