Okay, so maybe I'm not the target demographic for this film. I don't care. I enjoyed it anyway. The main thing going for it is that Bledel, Tamblyn, Lively, and Ferrera have great chemistry together. They are consistently engaging and genuinely funny. Of course, like action movies, the plot has a habit of getting in the way of the fun, but in the last quarter of the film the four of them are together and deliver the best moments.
There are also some fine performances from rest of the cast. You've got Lucy Hale as Lena's idiot kid sister. (BTW, Hale handles this role much better than Bledel did in Bride and Prejudice, but I'd love to see her cast in something outside of this mold.) You've got Rachel Nichols as acting Carmen's friend/nemesis. As Bridget's supervisor at a Turkish archaeolgical dig, Shohreh Aghdashloo shows once again why she is Hollywood's go-to actress for a strong middle eastern woman. And you've got Blythe Banner as Bridget's grandmother from Alabama. On the male side, you've got reformed Dragon's Lair addict Brian (suddenly sporting washboard abs) as Tibby's guy, Ian as Carmen's British acting foil, and Lena's twin boy-toys, ex-boyfriend Kostas and model Leo. When you combine the stars, the rest of the cast, and the picturesque scenes of Santorini, there is a lot of eye candy, probably something for everyone.
On the downside, the DVD special features are a little on the skimpy side. There are a couple of deleted scenes, none of which are earthshattering. There is a gag reel, but most of the gags are flubbed lines, not too exciting either. There is a brief vignette on the "cliff scene". And you can watch the film dubbed in Spanish or French with or without subtitles. I guess the stars were too busy to deliver more like with the last movie. That's okay. The bottom line is that the film is worth watching. It is good clean fun. (By the way, the PG-13 rating is absurd. This is far tamer than Gossip Girl or even Ugly Betty.)
