Julia is first seen dressed on stage as Marie Antoinette, saying "And treachery in me, your queen." In the gag reel, she says "Your weak mind sees rot" as an extension of that scene. A Google search turns up nothing on these lines beyond references to this movie, so it seems that this was not a real play but simply made up for the film. See more »
When Lena is talking to Kostos at the restaurant, we see a man in a sweatshirt passing behind her. She looks in the direction of her friends. After the cut, this same man is in the upper background. Then after another cut he is past them. See more »
I went to see that movies in theaters as both my sisters asked me to go. I wasn't thrilled but since I had nothing to do I went.
There was around 200 people in the theater...195 girls and 5 guys. I would've thought more couples would be there but apparently, guys really didn't want to see that movie so my first thought was : "Uh oh! I'm in for a long evening!".
Well I wasn't! Of course, staring at 4 beautiful girls is hardly a waste of my time but I found myself laughing many times and was intrigued by the movie.
The story is simple. The same pair of jeans comes again as in the first movie. All the 4 girls are again separated during the summer. Lena is in Long Island in some sort of art class, Tibby is in New York for her movie, Bridget is in Turkey doing archeology and Carmen is in Vermont doing backstage work in a play.
Well I won't say anything but you know the sort of things that happen. Well they happen. And it's good, it's your average teen movie, nothing exceptionally genius but nothing bad either.
I heard lots of complaints about some loose ends but that's not really true. Maybe people didn't listen enough or didn't quite understand what wasn't said but overall, everything fell right into place.
So why go see an average teen movie you might ask? Well I ask myself that question every day. I guess I like to be entertained and those 4 girls make that happen.
You probably shouldn't waste your money on going to see it in theaters but you should definitely rent it when it's out on DVD.
So in resume, it's as good as the first one...and Tibby is hilarious!
