I feel like that's sorta obvious. Girls get waaaaay more obsessive than guys, and they drag their boyfriends and husbands along! Shouldn't they know the money's in the women?

I believe the opening weekend success was due to the love of the book. I am reading a lot of reactions to the movie and most are negative in response to NO Meadow scene and choppy script and writing. Yes, there are plenty of positive feedbacks, too.

I hope CH & MR will listen and learn from their lack of vision in Twilight and give us a better, well-rounded New Moon. We will see.

Has this been posted already? Anyway, it really isn't about Twilight, but it mentions it!

What they argue is that chick flicks like Twilight already have a fan base, but don't they realize that most guy's films do too? All of the superhero movies come from comic books, James Bond has been around forever, and other movies they build off of are classics (i.e. Indiana Jones, Star Wars). So it's the same for any movie.
Oh, and how much of those robot films do girls go to? Like all of them. I've gone to all (or most) of those superhero and adventure movies. It's so stupid of them to rule out girls.
