Let the Twilight frenzy begin

I have a teenage daughter. She has devoured all of the Twilight books. She and her Edward-loving friends have been looking forward to the movie. Me?? Not so much. I have read all the books and actually quite enjoyed them. Part of the reason is that they far surpassed my expectations, which warms my cockles because the writer is a BYU graduate. I'm very proud of her. (No doubt she lives for my approval and this is the best news she's heard all year. #1 selling book? Eh. A movie contract? Yawn. Erin Black's thumbs up? WAHOO!!)

Reading my niece-in-law, Brittney's blog post about the movie today reminded me that my expectations for the movie are pretty low. And this time I highly doubt I'll be proven terribly wrong. I was able to get through the cheesy lines in the book by reading them really fast. Not possible in a movie. Just the trailer has caused me some queasiness. The SPOOF on the trailer, however, deserves an Oscar. It has made me laugh out loud more than once. If you haven't seen it, you simply must:

I love the part where he runs after the hot girl saying "I'm immortal!"
Now that's good cinema.

I LOVE this!! I just saw the movie, which I didn't hate, but in some ways I almost liked this one better...... I will be sharing it with my friends! :)

Saw the spoof yesterday...LOVED the spoof! Will sit through the movie on Monday and probably mock it, but who can fight the peer pressure of all the girls who want to go for our girls' night out? Not me!

I haven't read the books but for the first time I want to go see the movie just so I can enjoy the spoof more! That made me laugh out loud!
(My favorite flair is
"11-21-08 Where are all the girls?")

If you go to my list of blogs and click on Androopalooza, go down a few posts and she writes her own spoof of the script for the movie.
