For you Twilighters...

This is what you look like...and yes, it is that bad. Seriously, is this Harry Potter all over again??

    let's be careful of generalizations, paige. there are some of us who are rational who like the books and went to see the movie. and before dismissing it, have you read the books?

    I'm not making fun of you for reading the books...I'm making fun of the people who OBSESS about it.

    If you weren't obsessed...this would not have hit a sour note with you. Joel Mchale nailed it when spoofing this craze.

    On the news, they interviewed the main guy in the film and was asked what was the strangest thing that had happened to him since being in this film...his reaction...a seven year old girl asked him if he would please bite her on the neck...THAT IS A PROBLEM...I am sorry...

    I have as much desire to read Twilight as I did Harry Potter...none whatsoever. However, making fun of such a ridiculous craze is spot on with me. I love the book Marley and Me and will see the movie...but I am not marking my calendar. Nor would I ever go up to Owen Wilson (who is in the dog movie) and ask him to walk me like a dog.

    no, i'm not obsessed. i read the books. i saw the movie. that's the end of it. you will not catch me wearing a homemade tshirt or screaming at someone i don't know.

    what hit a sour note with me is that you said "for you twilighters, this is what you look like." you did NOT say "for those obsessed with twilight" or "look at these crazy teenagers"...that would have been different, and i would have totally agreed with you.

    i agree that some are taking it to an extreme. it's a good book--it was a decent movie.

    but YOU need to be careful of making generalizations. if the books aren't for you, fine. if you think that some people are acting obsessive--which i agree, they are--fine. but don't assume that all people who read the books are like that. that's just sheer ignorance.
