So my husband and I went on our first date in, um, 7 months. I know we should go out more often but having a Bi-Polar child makes it hard to leave home. But seeing he sleeps like a log we decided that the midnight showing would be o.k. to try.
Prince Erik was bending over backward to show some chivalry by opening doors and getting me sugar to keep me awake all the while talking how we would go work out the next day. And he gets bonus points for being 1 of only 8 guys in the theater. They all looked like they were trying to get bonus points from their sweeties as well. I bet they would have all liked to have been watching the Bond film instead.
We got there two hours early, see I was a bit excited, and two of the five theaters showing a midnight showing were already full. Thankfully we did get o.k. seats.
I even pulled these together for us to wear.
Prince Erik says I'm much better than Bella and I'd take him over Edward anyday!
So what did this obsessed Twilight Mom have to think about the movie? There were many parts I really enjoyed. Jacob’s hot, the humans were so human, liked the scene with the Cullen’s trying to cook people food. So wish Alice and Jasper could have been given bigger roles. The baseball scene was fun as well.
I think my husband said it best when he said that this movie is a very close adaptation to the book. He found the books to be very, um, shall I say, Cheesy. Somehow reading romance dialogue in print sounds a lot better than hearing it.
There were parts of the movie where I giggled and smirked where I don’t feel I was meant too. There were some over the top characterizations by some of the actors, that just felt a little forced or too theatrical. Who can blame them because they were trying to portray intense flowery written ten page romance scenes from the book with just a singular look. And honestly, sometimes it didn’t quite work.
So what am I saying? I’m actually torn. I liked it and I was disappointed all at the same time. I’m tempted to go see it again to see if it plays better when I’m actually more awake. I wish I could give the cast and crew two different grades. A for Effort and C for Cheese. If you like that then you’ll like the movie. I really did laugh a lot, (not sure if I was supposed to) so I would say go ahead and go if you want a good laugh.
Honestly the Twilight World in my brain is much better and a Trip to Forks with my Prince would have been a dream-better date. But we can’t do that in one night so a movie will do for now.
So what did you think about the movie???
Now that I'm more awake - I do think that I would have enjoyed the movie a bit more had I gone with my girly friends. It's a total chick flick, and I don't think I would have been as embarressed if I had been hanging out with the females. I am glad I got a date out of it, though, because Heaven Knows I need to have a date with P.E. every now and then.
