We gave it a C

The official site (yayasisterhood.warnerbros.com) for this film — which stars Ellen Burstyn, Sandra Bullock, and Ashley Judd — espouses the pro-woman, can-do ethos that permeates the Oxygen network and the entire Oprah franchise. There are electronic greeting cards for reminding friends that you love them, an online fortune-teller that gives treacly prognostications like ”If you spread your wings, you’ll soar,” and a message board for posting touching stories about friendship. The site will probably appeal most to like-minded preteens, but anyone needing a boost might find a little self-help here. Another plus: recipes for Judd’s butter pecan dessert and James Garner’s dad’s chili.
