The heartfelt moments are plenty in The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, a coming-of-age story where hardships run deep, but friendships run deeper, for four girls during one life-changing summer. Director Ken Kwapis deals with such teenage challenges as suicide, divorce, and sex by balancing out tearful episodes (Bailey’s hospital scene, Carmen’s heart-to-heart with her father over the phone) with riotous ones (Carmen nailing Paul in the forehead during a round of tennis? Priceless). Sisterhood is charming and uplifting, but if you don’t keep the Kleenex handy, you’re a goner. EXTRAS Tibby’s completed documentary is short but sweet; eight deleted scenes, including a cute pizza hangover snippet that should have made the cut, are fun. But the highlight is a video commentary where the girls gab over junk food while watching the film, revealing juicy tidbits like the secret behind Blake Lively’s lovely locks.
