Goofs

It is often thought that the moon is full every night during this movie. This is not the case. The moon is full and visible on only two nights during the film - on the night of Edward and Bella's wedding (the first night of their honeymoon) and after Edward and Bella have returned to Forks. The reason for this is that exactly 28 days have passed between those two nights, thus the moon has completed one full cycle. The full moon is shown during these two nights to alert the viewer that Bella's pregnancy has progressed to nearly full-term, even though only 28 days have passed since conception. See more »

Quotes

A Preteen Story about Boyfriends and Sex
25 November 2011 | by (Yorkshire, England) – See all my reviews

OK here is the thing about the plot for Twilight Breaking Wind...it is about boyfriends and girlfriends but only from a girl's perspective. There is nothing especially wrong with this except when it becomes a movie which my 7 year old could have made a better job of. So what are the existential components? 1. OMG which boyfriend do I choose, I'm the geek and now everybody (well 2 people) are interested in me... problem part 1 - one is manly but poor (trailer boy), the other is thin, pretty and rich problem part 2 - one is so muscly and animalistic and wants to constantly get his hairy? (shaved chest wolf?) body around me, the other is willing to wait until my wedding might (how touching) 2. I'm scared of sex for the first time...there might be some blood? 3. what if I get pregnant? (what if my baby is a monster?) 4. Foreplay...do I have to swallow something unpleasant? (several gallons of O Neg) ask Dr Freud about that one. 5. I want to look like a prepubescent girl for ever (where is the mirror, can I be immortalised?

Life, death and 12 year old fears superimposed upon celluloid...badly! There is more substance to an episode of Sara Jane
