Storyline

Bella and Edward celebrate their wedding, but, after their honeymoon on Isle Esme, things take a turn for the worse when Bella realises she is pregnant.

Trivia

Kristen Stewart said Taylor Lautner was in tears when the cast watched an unfinished cut. See more »

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.

Alternate Versions

Extended cut adds the following 7 minutes of footage:
  • The opening titles are now shown in blue instead of red.
  • Alternate opening: At the Volturi headquarters, Valentina, a human, hands the Edward and Bella's wedding invitation card to Aro. Caius comments that the invitation as the Cullen's style of declaring of Bella's forthcoming "embrace" as a vampire and a way of mocking the Volturi for their delays. While the three leave the room, Aro's servants disposed Valentina along with the pile of dead humans.
  • Esme Island: Edward makes breakfast for Bella. She comments about being hungry and they talk about her upcoming "turning". They kiss again just before the housekeepers arrive on boat.
  • Esme asks Rosalie to prepare some food for Jacob while watching over a sick Bella. Jacob at first declines but Esme insisted Rosalie to do so. She comes back with a hot dog on a dog bowl. Jacob takes a bit and then throws the bowl at Rosalie much to Emmet and Edward's laughter. Unimpressed, Rosalie simply leaves the room.
  • Alice joins Jacob at the balcony saying that standing next to him is like closing her eyes. Jacob could only say that he's glad to help.
  • Because Jacob has imprinted with Renesmee, Edward breaks Jacob's arm and throws him at a wall to keep him away from fighting the other werewolves. He later resets his arm.

Forced To See This
3 December 2011 | by Fields201See all my reviews

I know I'm late in reviewing this and probably no one is reading this review, but I had a hot date for this one and I couldn't say no. She really wanted to see this, and she had a thrill in dragging me along despite me not wanting to see this at all. I was never going to see this or any Twilight movie for that matter. She loved this one. I did not.

The problem, the biggest problem to me, is that it's very, very, very boring. NOTHING HAPPENS! Let's see, we see Jacob take off his shirt in the first two seconds of the movie and then Bella and Edward awkwardly have a wedding with fake smiles on their face. Then she has nightmares, possibly to show some form of entertainment throughout this boredom of a movie, and then there's the reception. That was the only scene I liked in the movie. At least it provided some humor. Then they go off to Rio... and nothing really happens. Yeah, they keep having sex and Bella just keeps wanting more. She calls her dad who is the only likable character, at least to me, in the whole series and then she finds out she's pregnant with some hell spawn, I guess. And vampires and werewolves get ticked off.

Then the dumbest moment happens. The wolves talking to each other. I swear it looked like a Saturday morning cartoon because they were so faked CGI and their voices was so Saturday morning cartoonish that Twi- hards should be offended! Anyway, the movie just drags and drags and I caught myself falling asleep. I held my date's hand and practically made out with it just to keep from falling asleep. I made it through the film. Thank God for that.

After the film, she really looked at me in hopes that I would love it like she did. I really couldn't lie to her and I hate telling her how much I couldn't stand the film. She explained the whole lore of the Twilight series and I still don't get it. I hate these movies. Unfortunately she is dragging me to part 2. At least I can spend more quality time with her.
