I loved the random phrases that weren't in the book like:
"My monkey man!" -Rosalie
"You better hold on tight spider monkey" -Edward
"Jasper is the one who looks like he is in pain" -Jessica (and the whole part with the dress)
"...Cat" -Edward (in the resteraunt)
There were some parts I missed though, like the medow scene, even though it was there, but there was no dialoge. Chapter 13 seemed to be nonexistant which made no sense because that is what started the book. Some parts I felt were unlike Edward, like telling her about being a vampire at the most random time, and that part where he practically dragged her along. I do understand that it is a 600 page book and trying to consolidate that into 2 hours is hard, but I just felt like there was more to the story that could have been portrayed and I felt it was sort of rushed, so i would recommend reading the books if you have not to anyone I knew just fully understand everything. DESPITE all of that I still REALLY LOVED it and I am DYING to see it again!!!
My favorite scene was probably the baseball scene I just loved it for some reason It had some great moments

-Mike nicknaming Bella "Arizona"...it seemed just like something Mike would do (to kind of claim ownership over her by giving her a pet name) I thought it was cute.
-I liked that they had some voice-overs (but I wish they would have added more of Bella's thoughts...like the part when Jessica is questioning Bella in Trig after Port Angeles, and Bella is thinking about Edward, "the vampire that wants to be good" etc)
-Emmett was funny and Rosalie was just as mean as I thought she'd be...and while I'm at it, I'll add that all of the Cullens were great (but I wish we could have seen a lot more from them!)
-Charlie in the ER, telling Tyler he can kiss his license goodbye (or however he phrases it) and then pulling the curtain = hilarious! Actually, pretty much all of the Charlie scenes were great. I hadn't ever developed a mental picture of Charlie from the book, so it was nice to see him brought to life.
-The kiss was HOT (I know some people are complaining about it being "too much" but I thought it was just fiiiine )
-I liked that the nomads got a bit more of a backstory than in the book, to kind of add to the suspense.
-The music was great! I might have to buy the soundtrack now!
-The scene when Bella is losing consciousness, and all these images are flashing in her mind, I like the one with her and Edward lying in the snow...it was beautiful...
