As a string of mysterious killings grips Seattle, Bella, whose high school graduation is fast approaching, is forced to choose between her love for vampire Edward and her friendship with werewolf Jacob.
Beca, a freshman at Barden University, is cajoled into joining The Bellas, her school's all-girls singing group. Injecting some much needed energy into their repertoire, The Bellas take on their male rivals in a campus competition.
Bella Swan has always been a little bit different. Never one to run with the crowd, Bella never cared about fitting in with the trendy girls at her Phoenix, Arizona high school. When her mother remarries and Bella chooses to live with her father in the rainy little town of Forks, Washington, she doesn't expect much of anything to change. But things do change when she meets the mysterious and dazzlingly beautiful Edward Cullen. For Edward is nothing like any boy she's ever met. He's nothing like anyone she's ever met, period. He's intelligent and witty, and he seems to see straight into her soul. In no time at all, they are swept up in a passionate and decidedly unorthodox romance - unorthodox because Edward really isn't like the other boys. He can run faster than a mountain lion. He can stop a moving car with his bare hands. Oh, and he hasn't aged since 1918. Like all vampires, he's immortal. That's right - vampire. But he doesn't have fangs - that's just in the movies. And he doesn't...Written by
Actor Peter Facinelli had the idea for his character, Carlisle, to be frequently seen wearing scarves and/or shirts with high collars. He said "I just felt like it added a little piece to his character. It wasn't in the book but I thought it might be interesting that because he was bitten maybe he has a fear of having his neck exposed." See more »
Throughout the film, Esme's name is pronounced differently by Edward. When Edward is telling Bella that he and then Esme were changed by Carlisle, he pronounces her name as "Ez-mee", but when he is introducing Bella to his family in their kitchen, he pronounces her name as "Ez-may". See more »

For the love of God run. Run away and never look back!
I realized that many people have seen this and I wanted to see what all the fuss was about. I knew that the film was a vampire romance, two genres that should never be mixed, so I simply asked myself: sparking vampires who stalk teenage females, how bad could it be? To my dismay what I found was a very shallow, tiring, detestable film. Let us first begin by looking at the writing. Perhaps some of the funniest dialog that I have seen in years, this film becomes increasingly disagreeable with every passing moment. With such immortal words as: "You know, your mood swings are kinda giving me whiplash," and best of all: "I'd compare (my life as a vampire) to living on tofu and soy milk," it seems obvious that I cannot take this film seriously. I distinctly remember literally falling to the floor laughing for most of it. I would love to say that this was where the horror ends but of course there was the sub par acting to contend with. Awkward moments punctuated by horrific gazes, this was a clumsy performance from both main actors. I only wish they would spend their newly found fortunes on acting lessons. The only item which I believe was tolerable was the directing. While there was nothing new to add to the cannon, with such an atrocious script and actors, I realize the director had a lot to contend with.
I would beg the reader to never see this film. It was horrifyingly bad on nearly ever level, not worthy of its hype or fan base. Please avoid at all costs.
