Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants is based on the book by the same name. Friendship, family, acceptance, loyalty, and a pair of pants hold together the different summer experiences of four close high school friends. The teen characters deal with difficult issues, including a parent's suicide, the disease and death of a close friend, a father's remarriage, seduction, and first-time sex (this last is indicated rather than depicted explicitly). The film includes tense family scenes, with a focus on reconciliation after angry flare-ups. Characters use some mild profanity (including "suck" and "ass"), and they drink. The girls demonstrate self-sacrifice, empathy, and understanding as they support each other through difficult experiences.
