I actually liked this movie a lot, which surprised me, a little. I saw it mainly because of Amber Tamblyn and Alexis Bledel (of Joan of Arcadia fame, and Rory of Gilmore Girls fame, respectively), but the other 2 girls, America Ferrera and Blake Lively hold their hold very well against their other sisters in the film. None of them looked out of place in the film, acting-wise. Oh, Blake Lively is going to turn some heads, she's the hottie of the quartet. The subplots of the 4 teenage girls who spend a summer alone, but tied together by a pact they make in sharing a pair of jeans that oddly enough fit all 4 gals, even though the body shapes are different enough to raise an eyebrow over such a fortuitous fact of life. The stories weave in and out, but I was never confused by the intercutting, and found the stories to have some meat to them as it was a summer of love, love of life, love of family, and love of a lossed one. They support each one gets from the letters that accompany the weekly shipment of the jeans/pants is more than enough for each girl to confront their issues, and to somehow resolve them, or become at peace with them. The demographic for this film is mainly teenage girls, but the 3rd act has enough emotional grit to make it worthwhile for a matinee, especially if you are a fan of some of the actresses in the film. I give it a 3 stars, or a grade of B.
