One kind of cool aspect of this film is that in a weird sort of way the story promotes abstinence. A human girl falls in love with the vampire boy. Because of his "blood-thirst" they have to be very careful about how close they get. Interesting little side-theme.
Mollie and I had a Daddy/Daughter date night last night. She wanted to see Twilight, so that's what we did. It was pretty good in a teen angst sort of way. Even though it's a vampire story, it's much more of a teen romance than a horror film. The whole film looked like an Abercrombie & Fitch ad. Lots of beautiful, skinny, pale, frowning teens. Teens I'm sure will love this movie. Adults will be OK with it. One annoying thing was watching it with a bunch giggling fans of the books (which Mollie and I hadn't read). They kept laughing at all these things that weren't funny at all. It was obvious they were in the know about things that we weren't. Even Mollie said she got annoyed by it.
