This film is adapted from a book which was reccommended to me by a friend. I was a bit apprehensive at first most likely due to the title. But, when I finally started to read it I was blown away. It is amazing. As soon as I had finished I read the two sequels and carried on being amazed! I then saw some adverts for the film and rushed straight to the cinema to see it. I am someone who has always believed a book will be better than a film but I stand corrected. This film is definatley the best I have ever seen and touched me in a way that none other has.

The story follows four girls summer, Tibby (the rebel), Bridget (wild and sporty), Lena (shy and beautiful), and Carmen ( the writer)They had never been apart all their lives they had been best friends, until this summer. They will all be going away to different places. Bridget, to a soccer camp, Lena to Greece, Carmen to see her Dad and Tibby reluctantly staying at home working in Wallmans ( a supermarket). Before they go away they all go shopping together and in a small thrift store they find an ordinary pair of jeans. These jeans fit all of them perfectly even though they are all different heights and shapes.

They take this to be a sign and decide that while they are away they will all share these jeans and send them fromone girl to the other while they are away. I do have to emphasis that the story is not about the jeans, it is about the things that to happen to these girls in their first summer apart and the touching realisation that true friends will never be apart. Buy this film it will change your views on film forever.

I first saw the film on a plane journey last summer and as soon as I got home I bought the book. I thought it was completly captivating and got a few strange looks as I tried unsuccessfully to stop myself from crying in my seat. The film follows the journey of Lena, Carmen, Bridget and Tibby, as they each experience there first summer apart. It deals with tender issues which every teenage girl can relate to and it kept me gripped from the very start. After reading the book I thought the film did it justice although at times the plot did alter. As I am fifteen I was aware that the film is aimed at teenagers, like the book, but I think anyone with an open mind can enjoy the film.

Don't be deceived by the title of the film: it's not pants, nor is it about pants. It's based on the book by Ann Brashares, but for anyone who hasn't read it, it's about four teenage girls who have been best friends all their lives, and are about to spend their first summer apart. To keep a strong bond between them, they decide to share a pair of jeans, which somehow managed to fit each of them perfectly, even though they're all completely different sizes.
Lena, the modest beauty of the group, falls in love on her holiday in Greece, and grows in confidence. Bridget, whose mother died not too long ago, goes to soccer camp and gets off with one of the teachers, then wonders why it didn't live up to her expectations. Tibby befriends a young girl with leukaemia, and becomes emotionally attached. Carmen finds out her dad is getting married and begins to feel increasingly angry and betrayed by her father.
These descriptions don't really give it justice because the performances put in by Alexis Bledel (Lena), Blake Lively (Bridget), and particularly Amber Tamblyn (Tibby) and America Ferrera (Carmen) and just amazing. I didn't doubt it for a moment, and I guarantee that even the hardest of people will feel close to tears at times.
Ann Brashares must feel very proud of this interpretation of her book- and happy to see the money rolling in from book sales, since this will definately make people who haven't read the book want to.
Even though this film was aimed at teenage girls, I can see anyone enjoying it (although the guys might not admit it). And it's not even slushy, if that's what you're worried about.
Watch it! You'll love it!

Based on a book of the same name, this sweet-natured movie follows the journey of four teenage friends and one pair of lucky jeans. Like many viewers, I was surprised to actually like this movie. It's cheesy, a bit silly and typically teen-movie but you know what? It's pretty good! It will have you laughing, crying and cringing all in one!

So meet the girls. It's kind of like the Spice Girls to be honest in terms of character types. Bridget is bossy, beautiful, sporty and a little bit wild - she basically flirts her way to whatever she wants. Whilst Lena is the opposite with her shy, self-concious attitude towards life. Carmen is intelligent, her character touched me the most actually because she faced some difficult decisions she had to rationalise her way out of. So that leaves Tibby, a hard-faced rebellious girl wanting to make a name for herself through film. Each girl has something to offer the viewer, providing the perfect combination. I found myself sucked into the lives, worries and triumphs of each one of them; to be honest I feel like they're my friends now! Each actor did such a great job of portraying their characters in a genuinely believable way.

So what's with the pants? Well basically they fit all of the girls, defying the laws of nature, and as such they are deemed the lucky pants. Each girl heads off on her own adventure for the summer, from summer camp to Santorini so the pants have to be shipped from girl to girl over the course of the summer. Why? So that they can record the best thing that happens to each of them whilst they're wearing them. Unsurprisingly the pants experience quite an adventure with each girl, bringing them luck, love, heartbreak and fun.

Okay, so the storyline isn't brilliant and it has some cheesy elements. But I challenge you not to love it anyway. You'll be rooting for the girls just as much as I was - and I usually hate these kind of movies!
