Trivia

In 2012, author Stephenie Meyer told Entertainment Weekly magazine that while she was filming her cameo in the wedding scene, she sat next to producer Wyck Godfrey, who was also appearing in the scene as a wedding guest extra. Meyer said that she and Godfrey spent their time creating a backstory for their "characters": that Godfrey "was a deputy policeman, and our marriage was on the rocks because he was in love with [Bella's father] Charlie."

Goofs

Although Edward and Bella clearly get married during the daytime, none of the vampires sparkle because Forks is usually cloudy weather and only direct sunlight causes their skin to react. They regularly attend school and work etc during the daytime without sparkling. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Bella Swan: Childhood is not from birth to a certain age. And at a certain age, the child is grown and puts away childish things. Childhood is the kingdom where nobody dies.

Not a movie but a soap, movie makers to be penalized with no revenue
14 January 2012 | by See all my reviews

I watched the first one after some insistence by my girl friend. I have to admit, the first one was a fairly decent movie, which translates to a 4/5 rating on IMDb.

After that it has all been about making sequels or as many movies as possible ...

Most movie goers to the cinemas to watch movies, not a soap that comes out with a new episode every few months.

I got conned into seeing until the third part of this epic nonsense, simply because I wanted to see how the story ends.

Such intentions from movie makers need to be punished by ensuring they don't get any ticket sales or any revenue from such movies.

It becomes very clear after the first one or two parts that the movie makers simply intend to never conclude the movie and wish to milk as many of us movie fans who will shell out money because we want to know how the story concludes ...

Okay fine, if you made a good first movie, you can make the extra money from a second part .. But half a dozen sequels of complete garbage is a bit too much.... Movie goers, we need to wisen up to these gimmicks ...

I would love to give negative ratings to such movies, but the IMDb scoring system will ignore very low scores and hence I am giving this to 2, which is close to where it is rated now, but still far enough so that it will drag the overall rating further down.
