The Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants 2

Sequels really do annoy me. One film I didn't think needed a sequel: The Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants. But still, the sequel was done, and as most sequels do, didn't live up to the first film. However, the film was average.
The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 2 (2008) leads on from where the first film left off. Each one of the girls (or the sisterhood) have parted ways again to start another life, in the big wide world. Carmen (America Ferrera) is attending Yale where she works backstage at the theatre, and decides to go to Vermont with her actress friend Julia (Rachel Nichols) to help her out backstage. Lena (Alexis Bledel) continues her drawing passion and goes to a school for the summer to learn more about art. Bridget (Blake Lively) travels to Turkey to take part in an archaeological dig in Turkey, while also learning of her families secrets. Finally, Tibby (Amber Tamblyn)is studying film, and also works at a video store. A pregnancy scare for her is thrown into the mix.
The sisterhood are leading very interesting lives, but ultimately, can they survive without each other? Don't worry, the pants are keeping them together. This film is a chick-flick, through and through, and will suit most teenage girls, as they will be able to relate to some of the issues in this.
Don't overlook this sequel, but I wasn't overwhelmed by it.

You mustn't be afraid to dream a little bigger, darling.
