The Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants
Four teenage best friends (Blake Lively, Alexis Bledel, America Ferrara and Amber Tamblyn) spend their first summer apart. In a bid to stay connected with each other, they pass around a pair of denims that fits each one of them, despite their different body structures.

Honourable Mention: 13 Going On 30
