I’ve read all The Twilight Saga books and seen the movies like a regular fangirl, but I still understand how it’s perfectly mockable. The movie’s awkward line delivery, excessive staring contests, creepy storylines and off camera drama make it perfect material for parodies and sketch comedies.
If you break the movie down into pie charts and graphs like this math nerd Josh Sundquist, it suddenly becomes even more laughable. The motivational speaker and best-selling author analyzed everything measurable in the Twilight world — LOLs, quality of life, Jacob’s abs, Twilight pedophiles and Stephanie Meyer’s hourly wage (he comes up with $750 million per HOUR!).
While it’s completely unscientific, I think he makes some good points — particularly when comparing Bella to other girls. While 99 percent of girls would probably get a restraining order if they caught a guy watching them sleep, romantic Bella decides to marry the dude.

We guess Kristen Stewart is more like her Twilight character, Bella Swan, than we thought!
Instead of ringing in her 21st birthday with the traditional booze, her Breaking Dawn co-stars decided to wring in Stewart’s big 2-1 with none other than a motorcycle as a gift, reports MTV.
“Rob was so excited for Kristen, and they each took turns riding it. Kristen learned to ride a dirt bike in ‘New Moon‘ so they thought it would be appropriate,” a source said. “Rob was supervising as she sat on it to make sure she was OK. They looked like they were having a great time, and it will be something they can really enjoy!”
Stewart, along with beau Robert Pattinson and co-star Taylor Lautner, among others, celebrated her big day at Rockwell’s Bar & Grill in Squamish, British Columbia on her birthday this past Saturday night.
“Rob led the crowd singing for her, and you could tell she was so embarrassed but in a cute way!” a source told Us Weekly. “Everyone was in a good mood, but it was a bittersweet night [as filming is almost complete].”
As excited as you are about your new gift, Kristen, we advise you to be careful –a shirtless and “sorta beautiful” Jacob Black/Taylor Lautner can’t always be there to help you when you fall!
As if the line-ups outside movie theatres didn’t give it away, the official reports are in: The Twilight Saga: New Moon topped the box office this weekend with $140. 7 million. New Moon now sits at number three in the list of highest ranking box office weekends of all time, alongside The Dark Knight ($158.4 million) and Spider-Man 3 ($151.1 million).
“New Moon proves not only that the importance of teen girls at the box-office cannot be overstated, but also that going out to see a movie like this in a theater creates a communal event that can become a cultural phenomenon,” Paul Dergarabedian, president of the box-office division of Hollywood.com, told The Wall Street Journal.
New Moon posted the largest opening-day box office record with $72.7 million, beating out The Dark Knight‘s first day.
When Twilight opened in 2008, it grossed $192.8 million after about 19 weeks in theatres, but as the Thanksgiving weekend approaches, critics are speculating New Moon will beat those numbers within a few days. More than 2,000 theatres in the US re-screened Twilight for a one-day teaser for fans, and grossed a total of $1.3 million.
