Seen: June 1, 2006

Reason to see: #10 on my 101 things in 1001 days is to see the next 5 movies (OMG I said movies not films!!) recommended to me regardless of what I think of them. The Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants was recommended to me by Jamie. Thank-you very much for recommending it!!!

It took me a few times to actually get through this film. Nothing against it, I've just been really really busy. But wow, it was amazing. Initially I was surprized as for some reason I thought it was a foreign film, but then I saw Rory from Gilmore Girls and was like, huh? I might have thought that it was foreign becuase it got such great reviews, isn't that funny. It was truly wonderful. Amazing, believeable stories about girls that you care about. Some things hit really hard, some moments were completely touching, but mostly it felt really real. It also got me, yes I will admit it.. a more that a little ...teary.

Shannon's Overall View:
I loved it
I will watch it again
I most definately recommend it

I really wanted to see this movie too and if you and Jamie liked it...well I seriously doubt I won't. Thank you Shannon, you totally inspired me to rent this one! I can hardly wait now. I've been looking for a good girl movie.

Balled my eyes out at this movie. What's so funny is that I recommended it just off the top of my head to you, not having seen it myself! I'm glad it turned out to be a winner.
