When Bella is trying to reach Jacob after his abrupt departure from the movie theater, she is in her living room doing her homework while her father is watching an Arizona Wildcats college football game on TV. Football season would have been over by this time, which should have been March or April (according to the fact that Bella's last visible email to Alice was on February 13, her sent email folder is organized by date and the last emails she's sent are at the bottom, as evidenced by the fact we see February 11, yesterday and today at the bottom) and she had spent at least a month or so working on the bikes with Jacob).

Eric: It's okay, baby. I believe you.
Jessica: No he doesn't. He's just trying to get lucky.
Angela: It was jet black and huge. On all fours it was still taller than a human.
Jessica: A bear, maybe?
Mike: Or an alien. You're lucky you didn't get probed.
Jessica: Yeah, like that would happen.
Angela: Well, I saw it.
Bella Swan: You know, you're not the only one. My dad's been getting reports down at the station. Something like 5 hikers been killed by a bear, but they can't find the bear.

Sure didn't see that coming.
20 November 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

well to start off, I've read all four books, and saw the first movie which i loathed.It had horrible acting, and cringe-worthy dialogue. so i was extremely disappointed with that one.I saw the trailer for new moon and became very anxious to see it. i was hoping it would be better since they got a new director......well i was wrong.i got my tickets in advance. pulled up to the theater with my mom-she has read the series to and thought twilight sucked-and we couldn't sit together because there was so many screaming teen girls.we got there half an hour earlier thinking there'd be no one there..... anyways,so the movie starts, i'm feeling pretty good.....sure as hell did not see this piece of crap coming.WORST.ACTING. but not from everyone.just Kristen and Robert.there was no chemistry at all between them as some claim. half the time he wasn't even looking at her!he mumbles his lines and its just BAD. then Kristen cant show emotion to save her life. she does this rapid blinking thing i don't understand.if they were replaced it would make a huge difference. Taylor was pretty good for the most part. he over acted at times and it came off as fake to me. like something you would see in a soap opera. but the rest of the Cullen clan,the wolf pack,and her school mates were excellent. the cgi was good,had really good stunt work. some lines seemed out of place to me. the leading roles need to FEEL the words and not just say them nonchalantly. the ending was bad to. they cut too many scenes from the book that would make a big difference to. so overall I'm disappointed. why this is such a big franchise i have no idea. fans are too obsessed, boggles my mind.i was left dissatisfied, but of course the rabid fan base will approve.
