so, the misery pair will no doubt be wanting a pay rise for all that suffering they have to go through for their ‘art’.

My friend dragged me to see this opening night. It actually wasn’t horrible believe it or not. I almost pissed in my pants laughing though when Pattinson turned her down after she tried to have sex with him.

If it wasn’t for Toy Story 3, this would have been a horrible summer at the movies. Thank God for Woody and Buzz.

Why, what’s your problem? Is someone holding you down and forcing you to read this post? Did someone kidnap you and force you to watch the movie? If not, you chose to look at this thread and spend your time on it.. you’ve upset yourself dumbo.

The movie TECHNICALLY made $69 million opening weekend. I don’t think they’re going to count the EXTENDED weekend in their publically recorded opening weekend total.

If they don’t, then they actually DIDN’T beat Harry Potter for opening weekend. They’re behind Harry Potter’s movies by between $10-$20 million (this tidbit for people who compare who makes more, Harry Potter or Twilight).

Twilight has and I think holds the record for BIGGEST drops at the box office, and I think that record will stand with this movie too. The numbers of people seeing the movie every single day are going down faster and faster. HAW HAW!

@9 Yeah, I don’t get why haters come on here just to bash it. Guess they have nothing else to do with their lives but spend time on things they don’t like.
Studios put out what sells. If more people went to see the movies the haters liked, then more of those movies would get made.
We’ve all been teenagers and liked movies other people thought were awful, to us though they were great! It’s how it goes and how it always will go. I’m in my mid-twenties and find the franchise and story to be cute. I don’t mind taking my little sis to see the movies. It’s a lot easier to sit through then the Adam Sandler movie I saw recently!

Sooo can i ask something?? If you people didn’t like the movie or think it was miserable and stuff, why would you even bother to post something like that?… i’m supposing you didn’t like it because of your comments about it, so again, why would you even bother if you know that are girls like me that will definitely stand up for the movie? are you letting us know your opinion? couse clearly we will still love it.
If i don’t like something, i won’t be posting things about it and less and insult, it’s kinda sad and desperated.

loved it, I’m glad it did well….go Rob, Kristen and cast!

  Men love from overlooking while women love from looking up.Abercrombie Fitch If love isa mountain, then if men go up, more women they will see while womenwill see fewer men.   

@lola@fran The answer to your question – people LOVE bashing Twilight! That is so easy to do with this silly,cheesy and overrated franchize! Media trow all this Twilight crap in our face all the time so we have to defend somehow! We just want to show obsessive Twihards that their dear Twilight has more haters than fans! And we enjoy it!!!!!!

@leon:
I’ve nothing bad to say about the Twilight franchise, but my word your spelling is atrocious. Typical ignorant behavior from an obviously ignorant person.
I’m not Twilight obsessed, but I do like the movies. I actually don’t watch much TV or read many magazines.. I have a life, so Twilight hasn’t been shoved down my throat. Maybe you should get out more or just ignore it?
As for the franchise having more haters then it does fans? Fine, ok. But there’s no denying it is one of the most successful things to come along in a long time.

IM SAD, THE PICTURE DIDN´T FULL MY EXPECTATIONS
IN THE RANK FROM 1 TO 10, 10 TH BEING THE TOP, I GIVE IT A 7.5

@leon
its seems that the people who hate the movie and have come to post here knows even more about the the movie even a fan would know…. if u hate the movie than why did u even see it IDIOTS….
