Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants

Ok, I'll admit it upfront: I saw the trailer for this movie, and my first thought was "chick flick." After viewing the movie, I will admit, that it was much better than the usual fare for this genre. The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants is the coming age story for these four sixteen year old girls. What binds them together is a pair of secondhand blue jeans that they mail between them during their first summer apart. Each one of them has some growing up to do,each in their own way. What results is a great twist, on this otherwise familiar plot. While the pants make the rounds, a touching story develops keeping the four sisters together, while being geographically apart.

Overall Grade: B+
