    An Ultimate Girl Power Summer Flick, June 7, 2005
    By 
    Ashley Quinn “Ash” (IL United States) –

    This is a truly amazing film brought to life by four truly amazing girls– Alexis Bledel as shy Lena, Amber Tamblyn as rebel Tibby, Blake Lively as fun-loving Bridget, and America Ferrera as writer Carmen. Each girl has a different story to deliver from different parts of the world. Lena’s in Greece with her grandparents, Tibby’s at home working a dull job at Wallman’s, Bridget is at soccer camp in Mexico, and Carmen is visiting her father in South Carolina.

    Together, they form the Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants after discovering that a hot pair of Levi’s fits each of their different body types perfectly. They decide that the best thing to do is to share the jeans since they’ll be spending the summer apart, wearing them for one week and then mailing them to the next person. Lena gets them first, almost drowning the first day she wears them, only to be rescued by a cute Greek boy, who will no doubt get her out of her shell. Tibby gets them next, who is staying home to work to get money for more camera equipment to make her “suckumentary.” She meets a vivacious 12 year old named Bailey, a girl who loves life as opposed to Tibby’s “life sucks” attitude. Carmen then gets the jeans– she learns that her father (who left her when she was young) is remarrying a woman with two children. She feels like an outcast in a see of blonde Brady Bunchers. Then the jeans head to Bridget. She’s still coping with her mother’s suicide, and flirts with the off limits soccer coach because it gives her something to do other than be sad.

    So the jeans travel between each girl throughout the movie, each time getting a new story and opening up new chapters in these girls’ lives. This is a wonderful movie. Very well played out and extremely well written, surprisingly so for a film about girl power… it stacks up much better than films like Sleepover or New York Minute, which absolutely stink compared to this rare summer jewel. RECOMMENDED!!

    Ahhhh…to be a teenager again…., August 6, 2005

    Four teenagers who couldn’t be more different are all best friends that have known each other since before birth. (Their moms were all in Lamaze class together.)

    They have shared hopes, dreams, and now will spend the summer sharing pants. They found a perfect pair of pants that fit both thin and curvy girls somehow. They feel that there is “magic” in those pants and good things will happen to those who wear them. They promise to send them to each location (they will go their separate ways for the summer) every few weeks. They even come up with rules about wearing the pants, “You can’t ever say you are fat while wearing the pants. Only the wearer of the pants can take them off.” and so on.

    Lena goes to Greece to visit family, Bridget goes to soccer camp in Mexico, Carmen goes to South Carolina to visit her father that she hardly ever sees, and Tibby has to stay home and work at Wallmans while making her “suckumentary.”

    As they start to wear the pants, things are going wrong: Lena meets the perfect boy, but their grandparents have a feud and she is told not to see him. Bridget meets a boy as well, but he is also her coach and they are not allowed to get involved. Carmen finds that her father is going to be remarried and now he is going to have two stepchildren. They all live together in the suburbs and seem to have the perfect life. Tibby meets a 12 year old who fainted in her store and this girl follows her around while she gives interviews and wants to work for her.

    Do the pants really have magic in them, or are they just imagining that great things will happen to them while wearing these jeans? One thing stays true: the four friends are there for each other throughout and support one another if things don’t go the way they hoped.

    Of course there are a few sappy parts, some unrealistic, but I did cry genuine tears. This is a beautiful film about love and friendship. Plus, you are able to see some gorgeous areas of Greece. Transport yourself back to your teenage years and feel a little bit of that magic.

    Perfect fit and great quality, March 5, 2013

    I wanted warm running pants that were not too baggy, but not super hero tights. These are the perfect pants. They are comfortable. They give you room. They breath. and they are warm. if that is what you need these are the pants.

    Makes the husband happy to run, February 25, 2013

    My husband takes a short run every morning and now that we’ve moved to chilly CO these pants have been great. He is not one to wear special work out clothes, but this was an exception, and he’ll never go back. He says the fit is really good. Plus his butt looks cute in them :)
