Did You Know?

Trivia

The Pants Manifesto scene (at Gilda's) was filmed by placing the camera on a 360-degree dolly track around the girls. However it was virtually impossible for the camera to complete the circle around them without its own shadow being visible at some point in the scene (as the camera passed in front of the lights). Luckily, the visual effects people came to the rescue and "erased" the shadow from the shot. See more »

Goofs

The movie indicates that the scene, where Tibby and Bailey are looking up at the stars and when Lena and Kostas are out on the boat, are around the same time. But Maryland and Greece are in very different time zones, eight hours apart. However, it could be 10-11 at night in one place and 4-5 in the morning in the other place, so it would be dark in both places. See more »

Quotes

Lena: Rule #7: Any removal of the pants must be done by the wearer herself.
[looks at Bridget]
Lena: [Bridget pretends to be offenced]
Lena: [laughs] Yes, you!
BridgetTibby: [laughing] Touche!

Great Movie...
3 June 2005 | by See all my reviews

You know how sometimes when you go to the movies and you wonder if the movie you are seeing will be worth your money? Well, this movie was definitely worth my money and maybe even more so. "The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants" was a great movie, quite possibly one of the best that will come out this year because of--among other things--the friendship it upholds, and I highly recommend it. There should be more movies out there like this, that show that no matter what, your friends truly matter. This movie teaches us that we should make sure that we have friendships like the sisterhood, and if we don't, we should do everything in our power to make all of our relationships with others stronger to last through anything that could happen.
