Take the New York Times bestselling book and pair it with a perfect cast, a screenplay from one of Hollywood's most respected writers, and gorgeous locales like Vancouver, Baja, and Santorini, and you have The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, the teen girl movie of summer 2005 from Alcon Entertainment and Warner Bros. Pictures!
The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants is one of my favorite book AND movie series. I found a deal on this movie companion guide, so of course I snagged it! As far as movie companions go, it wasn't the best -- there were many pages that were just text from the book. What was the point of that? I mean, they matched it up with movie pictures, so I guess that was supposed to be cool? Overall, it was very text heavy compared to other movie companion guides I've seen. Instead of short sentence or paragraph blurbs describing different things, it had three to four pages of a director or designer telling his or her story in detail. That' nice, but I feel like with a guide like this, I am really looking to find out just some neat tidbits about filming and the actors and how the story came to life. A book like this to me should be for skimming and not for deep reading.
So, I skimmed most of the text. It does boast on the cover to have more than 100 exclusive movie photos, and I really enjoyed looking at those. There were also storyboards and quizzes and other fun things. It was colorful and fun to go through.
On a side note: I hear they are going to make Sisterhood Everlasting into a movie, too? I've got to read that! Has anyone read it? What'd you think?
