this movie is getting lots of criticism , and while i understand this you cant nit-pick everything. i loved this book and obsessed about it FOREVER.... and to be honest they did pretty good. yes the characters weren't perfect, but they really went into their roles making me ignore the appearance they "should " have. i also missed some cute minor parts like the soccer( you know if you read book) but they kept true to the book and you have to look at bright side of things. i say go especially if you read the book . i went to the 10 pm pre-showing and it was good so just stop over comparing things because you like to complain.

This was very well done with good coverage of all the main points of the story in the book. My friends and I loved it and highly recommend!!

This was the worst movie I have seen in a while, but it was worth every penny mostly because I was cracking up for the duration of the movie. Every attempt by this movie to be an actual love story is thwarted by the ridiculous premise of two guys falling in love with two girls inhabiting a single body. Only Stephanie Meyer can complicate a love triangle by giving one of the characters a voice in her head that has different feelings and is prone to violent outbursts. The action was actually done quite well and the side of the plot involving the Seekers vs. Humans has great potential, but every time the movie kicks to the love story, the repressed giggling came back. The internal dialogue of Mel/Wanda just adds to the ridiculousness, especially when Mel is third wheeling in a conversation Wanda is having. There's a great action movie buried somewhere, but it's smothered by a ridiculous love story, bad cinematography, and horrible acting. Strangely though, had a great time.

I had read the book and the movie followed the book very well, although it was slow in some spots. I think that it might be a little odd if someone had not read the book.
