The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 旅するジーンズと16歳の夏 (2005)

<Review in English>
This movie is a typical chick flick.  Most men wouldn't understand the excitement of the the movie.  This is a particular way of seeing the world among teenage girls.
Actually, I watched the sequel "The sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 2 (2008)" first.
I recommend to watch them in chronological order.

Tibby (Amber Tamblyn), Lena (Alexis Bledel), Carmen (America Ferrera) and Bridget (Blake Lively) have been best friends since childhood.  In the beginning of their summer vacation, they find a pair of jeans that fits each one of them perfectly; they decide to share the pants as a magic symbol fo their friendship and form a sisterhood with manifesto for ten rules.  Bridget travels to a soccer camp in Mexico and she has a crush on the coach Eric, who is older than her.  Lena visits her family in Greece and has a crash on the local fisherman Kostas and finds that there is a feud between their families.  Carmen travels to South Carolina to spend the vacation with her father and she finds that he will marry the divorced Lydia.  Tibby stays in town working in a supermarket to raise money to buy new equipment for her documentary and is befriended by the twelve old Bailey that is very ill.  After their vacation, they grow-up and their friendship remains as solid as ever.


The jeans which fit them perfectly even though they are different sizes and shapes are the key element as a bond of friendship. They mail the pants back and forth to each other during the summer.  I enjoyed the four girls' summer episodes.  Each girl learns her own lesson and experiences her own things. I recommended this movie to young teen girls.


The movie is based on the young adult book, written by Anne Brashares. I haven't read it.  But I will read it someday.
