“SISTERHOOD OF VACATIONING PANTS – 2” (4 chicks)
“I guess they had done as much as one pair of pants can do...” that’s a line from the opening monologue in ‘Sisterhood-2’... need I say any more to convince you to stay away from this over-the-top chick flick that even the chickiest of chicks should find insulting?
Not having seen the ‘original’ Tale of 4 chicks of various heights & sizes all being able to fit into the same pair of jeans, I had no idea what I was about to be subjected to.
4 supposed ‘friends’ get together after being apart for some time & all immediately go their separate ways (Only one, Americo Vespuchi seems to be upset that they won’t be spending the summer together) Apparently they have a rule where they mail this ‘magical’ pair of jeans to one another in a weekly rotation. Eventually a younger sister
of one the 4 ‘borrows’ the pants & takes them to Italy where they are stolen. With tears flowing down her cheeks the sister calls home & with all the bereavement of losing a family member informs her older sibling that the pants are gone!
This film jumps from one Panted girl to the next without any substance; every segment is crammed with overemotional rhetoric to the point where you just want to slap them all in the face & say ‘Grow up, girlfriend!”
A trip to Italy ensues (to find the missing jeans) where one of the 4 chicks meets with the lying conniver, who at the beginning of the film dumps her for the woman he’s impregnated. Now, all during the meat of the film, this particular Panted chick has been making goo-goo eyes at handsome Johnny Mathis, Jr. (A painter that models nude for her art class) They seem to hit it off, yet somehow he is cut out of the film without any explanation as to why he’s been ‘dumped’ – I thought perhaps I had mercifully dozed off & missed a few scenes, but my wife informed me that they never did resolve the Johnny Mathis, Jr. affair...
The ending monologue was even more hysterical than the opening with Americo wistfully lamenting the lost pair of pants that had done as much as one pair of pants could do... Hopefully this means there won’t be a Sisterhood of Chicks That Don’t Seem To Like One Another Except For Their Magical Pair Of Pants 3 – As Americo might say as the screen fades to black – “I think the pants would have wanted it that way...”
