Elevator Pitch Four young women who are best friends are to be separated for the summer, but find that there is a pair of jeans which for some unaccountable reason fit all of them, despite their physical differences. They determine to share them by post, hoping they will bring them luck in their adventures.
Content One girl meets a boy on the island of Santorini, another develops a crush on a trainer at a girls football camp in Mexico, another (half Puerto Rican) is at odds with her divorced father when he takes up with an up tight woman and her offensive offspring and the forth stays at home, works in a supermarket and meets a kid with leukaemia. Brief flashes of teenage underwear and a bit of snogging.
A View The target audience was apparenty a 15 year old girl and it shows. The script tiptoes around the whole business of sex, the point of two of the stories, but my wife and I have had great times in Greece and Santorini really does look like that and the friendship between the girl left at home and the one who is sick is well done. So not a total disaster, but there are so many movies out there. A watch if you are a fifteen year old girl.
