Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 2
The 2008 sequel to the female buddy film The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants constitutes an adaptation of Ann Brashares' novel Forever in Blue: The Fourth Summer of the Sisterhood. Like the premier installment, this picture explores the seriocomic events that unfold one summer in the lives of four temporarily estranged friends as an extremely special pair of jeans works its way from one girl to the next.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"You believe these four are friends now and will probably be friends when they're little old ladies."
‑ Richard Roeper, Ebert & Roeper
"Like its predecessor, Sisterhood 2 is based on two radical ideas: namely, that young women's stories are about more than the pursuit of men, and that happiness isn't something someone else gives you -- it's something you have to find for yourself."
‑ Jessica Reaves, Chicago Tribune
"A sharper eye on developing the themes and characters might have produced a compelling character drama but The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 2 is a good bit better than average. There aren't many sequels that can say that."
‑ Joshua Starnes,
"Very much a loyal sequel to its predecessor, essentially showing that if it ain't broke, don't fix it."
‑ Jeffrey Chen, Window to the Movies
"Most sequels are worse than the originals. A few are better. Here's one that is exactly as good as the one that inspired it, and that's enough for me."
‑ Mike McGranaghan, Aisle Seat
"It doesn't measure up to The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants. Which is sort of like saying Rocky V wasn't as good as Rocky IV. Sort of."
‑ Peter Rainer, Christian Science Monitor
"Turns out to be a lot less tiresome than it sounds, aided by a wonderfully appealing cast and a strong message."
‑ Connie Ogle, Miami Herald
"A satisfying sequel involves us in the ups and downs of four young women as they try to find themselves"
‑ Louise Keller, Urban Cinefile
"The emotionally fragile foursome try out higher education for size, along with those transient pants. Sex And The UniverCity Meets My Big Fat Greek Shotgun Wedding."
‑ Prairie Miller, NewsBlaze
"These Pants are torn and frayed."
‑ Charles Koplinski, Illinois Times
"What had once seemed like a fresh alternative to the usual tween-girl movie has begun to fray."
‑ Stephen Whitty, Newark Star-Ledger
"Screenwriter Elizabeth Chandler gracefully condenses three of Ann Brashares's best-selling teen novels, striking the right balance between humor and pathos as the characters cope with jealousy, heartbreak, family conflicts, and a pregnancy scare."
‑ Andrea Gronvall, Chicago Reader
"A good fit for its audience."
‑ Cole Abaius, Film School Rejects
"Traveling Pants 2 offers more of the same and, I'm afraid, more of the same and more of the same."
‑ John J. Puccio, Movie Metropolis
"This movie is definitely not as good as the first as it seemed to lack showing the bonding moments that made these girls true friends."
‑ Jolene Mendez, Entertainment Spectrum
