What was really interesting, though, was the audience, most of whom seemed to feel pretty much as I did about it: they were watching a popcorn film for a bit of fun, with no intention of running off to marry an obsessive nut with excessive hair gel and have vampire babies anytime soon. Edward's set-piece proposal and the production of the Ring, the most appallingly sub-Claire's Accessories piece of tat known to man, far from provoking swooning romantic fever or the desire for ten vampire babies, a perfect house and a Volvo, got the biggest laugh of the night. In short, don't run out and see it, but I've seen worse and it certainly isn't a sign of the imminent End of Days, though there is disappointingly little sparkling.
*I shall maintain that the first Twilight film is actually pretty decent, though. Certainly well put-together with some decent cinematography and solid performances, and a hell of a lot more entertaining than your average misogynistic so-called romantic comedy.
