Trivia

Director Chris Weitz said this was an easier process than his other film The Golden Compass (2007) as he found "a lot less interference from Summit [Entertainment] and a lot more understanding of the books than New Line had of The Golden Compass" - which Chris said ended up being "completely re-cut" by the studio. He thinks that Summit Entertainment "understands the importance of the [Twilight] books - members of which who have read the books and appreciate them - not just see them as engines of possible profit."

Goofs

When Bella is in the kitchen telling Charlie and Harry Clearwater about seeing the huge wolves in the woods, there is clearly no phone on the wall between the cupboards and the doorway - however towards the end of the film, Jacob answers Edward's call using a phone on the wall, that wasn't there in the earlier scene.

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.
