Sorry I'm so late with this comment.
I agree with you that there was some whitewashing going on with Jacob there, but he is a character that really needs it. It would be very interesting to see the full unadulterated Jacob onscreen.
However, even though they cleaned Jacob up some, they actually added something in that wasn't in the book. Jacob lets his mouth run on in the book, the most charitable interpretation at least. Otherwise, you could say he was putting a guilt trip on Bella with a lot of his "end of the line" type comments, this is the last I'll see you like this, I'll always remember you like this, blushing and two left feet, yada yada yada.
Bella doesn't call him out in the book, the only thing they argue about is the "real" honeymoon. She does call him out in the movie. That's probably meant to cut to the chase and summarize everything that was going on in the book. BUT, it's a big difference, there are very few times in the series they did that. So, I'd agree with Tornado, it was actually done pretty well, Jacob's gets a little bit of cleaning up, and Bella gets some words in with him that wasn't there originally.
And, they kept his howl in as they were leaving for the honeymoon. I thought that came off kind of creepy, which is how I took it in the book.
