Everyone loves to beat Melissa down, but the reality is, EVERYTHING she has altered or changed was approved upon by Stephenie as well as Summit. A novel, by default, makes a bad movie, and it isn't designed for movies...

There just isn't enough content to justify making any of the movies that long. The Godfather is in an entirly different catagory. The novels were epic along with the scriptwriting. SM's books are great, fun reads, but again you can't compare them to literaly legends... Not even the Harry Potter novels can yet acclaim that prize. They can fit the movies into 2 to 2.5 hr catagories without a problem.

I am thinking more in terms of running times about 15-20 minutes longer than they've actually run. That would still be shorter than, for example, most of the Harry Potter films, which have generally run 150-160 minutes. You could do quite a bit in terms of story development with an extra 15-20 minutes to work with.
