I don't want to make fun of Twilight because, at this point, it is like making George W. Bush, they have all been made and the world has moved on. So I am going to be brief.
Basically, the movie breaks down like this:
Vampires acting subtle and mysterious while wearing awesome clothes, driving really nice cars, and having a fantastic place to call a crypt-10 minutes
Not very interesting special effects driven action-3 minutes
Amazingly banal teenage inner monologues-102 minutes
Trying to catch a glimpse of Rosellie Cullen (Nikki Reed) in her baseball uniform-5 minutes.

By the way, Nikki Reed co-wrote (at 13) and starred in a much better movie about teen-age angst, 13 (also directed by Catherine Hardwicke, 2003).
Everyone knows the saying, "Curiosity killed the cat/satisfaction brought him back," I fear those two hours are gone forever.
