Ok all…admit it. You’re a Twilight fanatic and you love all that is Bella, Edward and Jacob. Whether you’re cheering for the Cullens or for the Blacks, or even for Charlie’s witty humor, you’re immersed in all that is the beauty of Forks, Washington and the magic that happens in the woods of that area. I first read the Twilight series on a whim over 3 years ago when I was searching for something good to read. I came across the Twilight series on a Moms for Twilight website that talked on and on about how the series, geared towards pre-teens, was really an entertaining read for the adult female. A little weary and cautious, I rented the books from the library and plowed through the first two in 4 days. I was hooked.

The movies have always been on the verge of disappointing and cheesy to magically beautiful and amazing. I could never draw a hard line but could tell you the parts that made me tear up and the parts that made me cringe due to massive cheese factor. Breaking Dawn Part 1 was no stranger to either emotion.

Bella finds out she's preggers!

The movie mostly circles around the long-awaited wedding and doesn’t make the movie-goers wait. We are launched right into the big day and preparations as Bella gets ready to make her couplehood with Edward official. Everything was beautiful, from the dress to the decorations, to the guests to even the hilarious speeches. God, I love Charlie! And then Bella is whisked away to her mysteriously tropical honeymoon outside of Rio with Edward. They spend their days enjoying the island but then the long-awaited (and pretty disappointing) sex scene arrives and poof, Bella’s preggers shortly after! It was super cute how they tied in the chess set into the honeymoon. I thought that was well-thought out. And Bella trying to be sexy to seduce Edward into their first sexual encounter? Hilarious! Oh, Kristen Stewart, your awkwardness slays me! The rest of the movie circles around Bella’s pregnancy as they rush back home and try to decide what to do with the “thing” that is sucking the life out of tiny, tiny Bella.

Honeymoon game of chess.

The cheesiest part of the flick? The wolves talking to each other trying to decide how to handle Bella’s bundle of joy and Jacob then leaving the pack. That seriously made me cringe in embarrassment for them. But the rest of the movie was pretty decent. The movie definitely skipped over a lot of important parts in the book, but hey they only have 2 hours right?! One of the best parts of the movie was the very end when Bella is changed! EEEK! I can’t wait til Part 2.
