DVD: The Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants 2 (12)

  • @gillian_orr

This curiously named series of books gets its second film make-over, much to the delight of tween girls everywhere.

The "travelling pants" refers to a hideous pair of bejewelled jeans that miraculously fit a group of four best pals. When apart, the girls take it in turns to wear the pants and enjoy their magical powers, before sending them on to the next. When Ugly Betty (America Ferrara), Gossip Girl (Blake Lively), Gilmore Girl (Alexis Bledel) and some other one go their separate ways for summer, let's hope the pants can help them through teen pregnancies, family rifts, backstabbing rivals and questions of the heart. Yes, it's as bad as it sounds.
