I was at the airport a couple of months ago and right by me at the gate was a serviceman in full combat gear reading a copy of Twilight. I’ve never seen another man with a copy of the book, so as far as I can tell the answer to the OP’s question is “Our brave young men in uniform.”
I admit I was sorely tempted to say “So, is your girlfriend making you read that?” but I didn’t want to embarrass him if he actually liked it.
as a standalone movie? NO FRELLING WAY would I even contemplate wasting a lone, solitary brain cell on this waste of celluloid, but with the Mike Nelson, Bill Corbett and Kevin Murphy treatment, the film becomes “tolerable”
Twilight is the “Manos” of Rifftrax (actually, I’d say it was the “Red Zone Cuba” of Rifftrax, The Star Wars Holiday Special is the “Manos” of Rifftrax)
FTR, I am over 15, I’ve read the first Twilight book (out of curiosity), and I thought it was hysterical. It is SO geared at preteen girls (who have yet to acquire good taste, lord knows I probably would have liked it at age 12) I have a hard to imagining anyone who ISN’T a preteen girl liking it and still being…a mature, functioning adult. The Twimoms do nothing to abuse that notion.
Maybe the movies are more exciting than the books. Haven’t seen them, myself.
As a gay man I can say that I tried to read it for our 15 year old daughter. I’ve read technical manuals that kept me more interested. In the end, I cheated and watched the movie… With Rifftrax… And I was still bored and annoyed. (Llllllllllllllladies).
I tried to watch New Moon with Rifftrax last night and was out 5 minutes into it.
