In a deleted scene, Carmen ineptly attempts to "interpret" between English- and Greek-speaking people by speaking only Spanish. This explains why in the next scene (which remains in the movie), Tibby says to Carmen, "Oh, so you speak Greek now?" See more »
When Bridget is talking to Greta during the thunderstorm, a section of her hair on her right side is pulled behind her ear and not pulled behind her ear many times. See more »
[while stuidying for the play]
"Oh, Lady Fortune! Stand you auspicious!" God! Why don't people talk like this anymore? It's just, we've gotten so lazy! We don't say "Oh, Lady Fortune! Stand you auspiscious!" We say "Dear God, help me..."
Or instead of "Enjoy the honey heavy-dew of slumber", "Yo, get some Z's"
It's just... It sounds so good and it feels so good to say. It's rich and luscious.

The girls are back after a brief break during which each is described as being incredibly talented at their respective passions and whisked off to ivy league colleges. After Carmen's helpful voice-over brings us up to date with our favorite Bethesda natives, we begin each's summers
Tibby is working on scripts in summer school, Lena is taking an art
class, Bridget is digging for artifacts in Turkey, and Carmen, after realizing to her dismay that none of her friends will be there in the summer, impulsively seizes an opportunity to work back stage at a Shakespearean summer production.
I caught the midnight showing of Sisterhood mainly for the estrogen rush, but I won't deny that a certain part of me was eagerly awaiting the return of Carmen, Tibby, Bridget, and Lena. And as a devoted reader of the series, I can certainly say that this movie, comprised of plot elements of books 2,3, and 4 is completely different from their textual counterparts. For example (and without giving too much away, I hope) Bridget's archaeological expedition yields little more than emotional realization - there is no mention of the hunky, married, professor in book 4.
Most of the choices only benefited the movie, and overall Sisterhood brimmed with summery, feminine fun. Perhaps my favorite addition was Carmen's plot line - though I admittedly skimmed Carmen's section in the books, I think I would have remembered the theater program story that, in this movie, is just, if not more, interesting then the other girls.
So if you liked the first movie, you'll enjoy this one. If you didn't, I'm not making any promises.
