The Sisterhood of the Traveling PantsBy Jane Louise Boursaw
MPAA Rating: PG
When four lifelong friends (Amber Tamblyn, Alexis Bledel, America Ferrara, Blake Lively) are about to be separated for the first time, they devise a plan to keep in touch over the summer. The teens buy a pair of thrift-store jeans that each will wear for a week to see what luck they'll bring her before sending them on to the next. This thoughtful movie, based on Ann Brashares' best-selling novel, shows the true value of friendship - during good times and bad - and teaches kids that it's ok to reach out to others. This is definitely a chick-flick geared for teens, but even girls 8 and up will love it (but be advised, there is a bit of suggestive sensuality). 119 min. 2005.
