Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 2: Movie Review

Most often than not, the second film in most sequels is not as good as the first film. The second movie based on the books by Ann Brashares isn’t an exception. We absolutely loved the first but we felt that the second film did not establish much of a connection to its audience. The reason for this is we think is that they tried to equally showcase the things that happened to all four characters but they failed to generate real excitement. One or two of the character’s stories stood out while the rest was just simply dragging. Another reason why it is dragging is probably that they squished three books (Books Two to Four) in one movie. There are a lot of things that will happen and all of it will leave viewers feel sick and tired; literally making them want the movie to end already. Just a caution, concentrate, don't blink or else you'll miss a lot!

All four girls just finished their first year of college and unfortunately, they are again spending the summer apart. Bridget is on an archeological trip to Turkey where she tries discovers herself and dig for the truth while Carmen is in Vermont to take part on a play wherein she surprisingly becomes one of the lead characters accidentally. Tibby on the other hand breaks up with her boyfriend after a pregnancy scare and finally Lena starts to move on from her failed relationship with Kostos as she falls for an art student and model in her class.

The movie would definitely appeal to its target audience, mostly teenagers and females and we warn the guys to try to stay away from this movie (Like any guy would dare watch this with his friends!). It was definitely enjoyable to watch the wholesome image and good chemistry from the four casts of the film. Props to Amber Tamblyn who plays Tibby as she showed exceptional acting. But we can definitely say that it is a far cry from the first film. This one simply showed too much and yet it puzzles us why despite showing a lot, the movie was still really boring. Think of this movie as a poor man's Sex and the City movie. Everything in it is, to put it bluntly, of a lower level. Less adult theme, less the execution, less the drama and less the fun. In short, better watch Sex and the City instead than this poorly executed flick.

Rating: 2 and a half reels
