Viewer’s Annotation: Four friends find a pair of jeans that somehow fit their four different body types, and they agree to share the pants between them as they each embark on different adventures for the summer.

Summary: Because their mothers met while pregnant, Bridget, Lena, Carmen and Tibby have grown up together. Now 16, the girls are facing their first extended separation for the summer. Just before they part ways, they make a pact to share a pair of jeans and their stories. Having just lost her mother, saucy Bridget heads to Mexico for summer camp and tries to forget her grief by throwing herself at a good-looking coach. Shy Lena visits her grandparents in Greece and meets a guy who helps her realize her own beauty. Tibby gets a job at a local discount store and meets a spunky 12-year-old who ask to help Tibby with her documentary project. Excited to be spending the summer with her dad, Carmen is shocked and devastated to meet his new family. Through letters the girls stay connected and continue to love and support one another despite the physical distance between them.

Notes: A great chick flick, this movie is most endearing because of the love that the characters have for one another. Each girl is a distinct and admirable personality, and any girl would be happy be a part of this sisterhood.
