I'd always been worried about Kristen Stewart and how she'd portray Bella, but she did just fine. Impressive even. She could have smiled more and had more inflection, but overall, I think she did a good job. Rob..."smoldering" is impossible for a human. I've come to that conclusion. Also, Edward-like rigidity is extremely difficult to play, and I don't quite think Rob has that down. Honestly, I don't think he's quite embodied quite a few of Edward's traits.
I did like the movie. I LOVED the humor that was supposed to be in there. Of course I was dying at the Bella tripping scenes. Mike was sooooo funny!! "You're alive!!" There was a lot of funny dialogue. The Blacks were funny. Billy wasn't what I was expecting, but I liked him. My favorite line to date:
"Sex. Money. Sex. Money. Money. Cat?"
The Cullens were HILARIOUS in ways I wasn't expecting. Emmett was so classically Emmett without even having to talk much. I thought Alice was stunningly beautiful and VERY sweet. Carlisle, who I felt looked the most vampiric(him and Alice), out of everyone, did a wonderful job and looked great . Esme, as usual, was hardly present, but she looked quite nice as well. Rosalie...could have been meaner, but I liked her. Another great line: "How do you know she's Italian?" "Her name's Bella, duh!"

Jasper's face bothered me. I know Jessica saying "He's the one that looks like he's in pain." was supposed to explain his expressions and stiffness, but I didn't like it at all! It felt so...ridiculous and like a parody of Jasper. But I do like that the one time Jasper talks, he has the southern accent that we love! Baseball was AMAZING. Surprisingly so. I loved the way the whole scene looked and Alice looked so graceful and beautiful pitching the ball. And the actors running! That was soooooo cool. Lastly, the fight scene. I thought that turned to be extremely awesome, especially since I'd been expecting it to look not-so-good. Very pleased with the final product. Kristen's screams when the venom was burning her were very convincing. I felt the pain with her.
Two complaints: Do something about the vampire eyes! They look unnatural, and not in the right way. Secondly, PLEASE find a way to eliminate Rob's 5 o'clock shadow! Pasty white make-up and stubble do NOT look good together.
