I dragged my feet about seeing this, because I thought I might hate it. When I finally saw it, I was the only person in the entire theater, and now I wish I had been really loud or something. But anyway, I enjoyed it much more than I thought I would. The part where Edward explains the whole vampire business to Bella is too long and contrived, and they spend way more time up in the tops of impossibly tall trees than I remember from the book, but it's entertaining enough. I think the movie shows the sexual tension between Edward and Bella even better than the book did, and in a possibly useful way for talking to kids about sex and its consequences.
