The Fabric of Friendship
The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants
Review Review by Ross Anthony

What a sweet little film. Corny, but sweet. I even cried a little bit; I'm not too ashamed to admit. Goodness, I think everybody cried at certain points... and at this one point, this one woman, far in the back row, we could hear her whimpering for five minutes after that big cry scene. That woman, she was breathing in real deep and trembling as she cried. I mean, you couldn't see her, it was dark and all, but you could definitely hear her. That was sweet. It's sweet when a movie touches you like that. I'm not too ashamed to admit that. A good cry feels good!

So, the movie follows these four best friends the year they separate, just after high school and all. I mean, they grew up forever together, then three of them take off. One goes to Greece and meets a real smooth Greek guy that her relatives hate. One goes to stay with her father who she only sees like twice a year. She's all excited about it, but there's a big surprise that kind of smacks her in the face. Then the other girl, the tall one, she's not afraid of anything; she goes off to some kind of soccer camp and hits on one of the coaches -- and they're supposed to be off limits. The last one stays home and works at Wallman's, you think she might be bored, but she's really not. She meets this snotty little kid that, well... you'll see.

Anyway, before they split up, the four friends, the sisterhood, they just happen to find this pair of pants that just happens to fit all four of them, like perfect. Doesn't matter that they are all different shapes, and heights, the pants fit them all just fine. So they think its cool and decide to send them back and forth... hence they travel (the pants).

So there's a lot of things that happen in this picture, the four all end up learning good/hard life lessons the best of which is "Enjoy the good stuff! Life isn't perfect." And then the film ties up a lot of loose ends before the screen goes black.

This film screened at a Krikorian Theatre.
