Men who are film critics, such as myself, stereotypically aren鈥檛 fond of the movie genre known as 鈥榯he chick flick鈥. We usually have to remove our male biased opinions towards them and see it for the cinematic work that they are. In this particular case, I must admit, 鈥楾he Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 2鈥 was an enjoyable and delightful film that engrossed me for its 2 hour duration.

I really wasn鈥檛 expecting to like it, so the fact that I did, makes it even more memorable. Sisterhood, based on a book by Ann Brashares, is a reunion for the actresses that have now made it 鈥榖ig time鈥 on their respective TV shows; Hondurean American America Ferrera stars in 鈥楿gly Betty鈥, Blake Lively in the hot sexy Gossip Girls, Amber Tamblyn is widely known for Joan of Arcadia and Argetinian-Mexican American Alexis Bledel (who knew she was a hardcore Latin?) currently stars in Gilmore Girls. This year more than ever, television stars are making Hollywood look real good.

One of the great things about the film outside of the physical and cultural diversity of the cast, is the chemistry they share onset. They seem to really get what their characters are all about. It鈥檚 three years later and each of the girls are exploring their professional goals. Their only apprehensiveness is the potential estrangement from themselves that distance could impose on them. The four story lines are alluring enough to not lose you to lassitude.

Ferrera is the best actress of the group, evident when she spews out Shakespeare lines as if they were vernacular English. Tamblyn, with her caustic and mordant personality, provided the much needed comic relief from the emotional pounding the film takes with Lively鈥檚 character. Bledel, unfortunately was the weakest link and didn鈥檛 really provide enough believable gravitas to take the film to the next level.

As my colleague Alex Florez termed it, 鈥楾he Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 2鈥 is a 鈥榮lice of life鈥 movie, and I believe it will resonate not only with tween audiences, but also with mom and dad adults. That combination will surely squeeze out a third part out of those magical jeans.
