The storyline of The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants (what I can tell from the trailer, as I haven’t read any of the books) is that four BFFs share a magical pair of jeans. Magical how, you may ask? Apparently they have the ability to fit any of the four gals, even the more well-endowed Carmen (America Ferrera). I have a hard time believing a pair of pants that could fit skinny-minny Alexis Bledel would be large enough to fit someone my size, but that’s another story altogether.
Amber Tamblyn (aka Joan of Arcadia) has a blue streak in her hair (we infer she’s the rebellious type). Some girl I’ve never seen before is the gorgeous jock-type, flirting with her futbol coach in Mexico. Get it? They are all so different, yet best friends! Awww.
And Josh from the WW is playing Carmen’s father, getting ready to marry Nancy Travis. Remember “Almost Perfect”? It was a cute show while it lasted. Of course, Carmen’s weight is an issue. She states emphatically that she “has a booty”! Let’s just hope that isn’t the best line in the film.
Then Kelly Clarkson’s song breaks in to remind us that yes, this is a chick flick. Alexis Bledel’s character is in a forbidden relationship, and what teen dramedy would be without one? Then a recap of all the starlet’s names, and a clip from the end of a film, showing Rory, ahem, Alexis’ character returning from Greece.
Rating: 8/10. It could be worse, and at least it doesn’t give away the ending.
