After I watched the first movie, which I thought was okay, I got interested in reading the books. So I headed to the book store and read the blurb on the back and it said something like: "Bella is still torn apart in her choice between Edward and Jacob."
So I thought: Okay, let's skip this one and have a look at the blurb of the next book, Eclipse, which said something like: "Bella's mind is tortured by the still ongoing dilemma between Edward and Jacob."
The Breaking Dawn blurb still mentioned some emotional attachment to Jacob even though she clearly had something going on with Edward, which is clear from the start.
So I decided I didn't want to read the books anymore and I patiently waited for the movie, hoping something else would happen besides love trouble and childish romance dilemma's.
As it turns out, it was only about the love obsession. You don't sympathise at all with the main character. She's somewhat of a selfish bitch, actually. "I miss my boyfriend so I'm doing all this crazy risky stuff to see him! Don't expect me to be home for dinner! I mean it! I'm gonna do it! Look at me! Look at me! Oh, Jacob put his shirt off! I'm doing it! Wiiiiiiii!" The incredible part was that she still had friends after all the sick and childish behaviour.
But it IS a really funny movie to see with friends! Don't bother not talking through it. It's funnier with audio comments. Try Rifftrax.
