The Twilight Saga: New Moon

In the second installment of Stephenie Meyer’s Twilight series, vampire Edward (Robert Pattinson) and his family abandon the town of Forks, Washington, in an effort to protect Bella (Kristen Stewart) from the dangers inherent in their world. The heartbroken Bella sleepwalks through her senior year of high school, but her frozen heart is gradually thawed by her budding relationship with childhood friend Jacob (Taylor Lautner), a member of the mysterious Quileute tribe. When it becomes clear that Bella is still in grave danger, she finds herself in a race against the clock, learning both the secret of the Quileutes and Edward’s true motivation for leaving. She also faces the prospect of a potentially deadly reunion with her beloved that is a far cry from the one she’d hoped for.

Constrained by the plot of the novel, the film keeps the two lovers apart for quite a spell, robbing the project of the crazy-in-love energy that made "Twilight," the first entry in the series, such a guilty pleasure.

Once again, the three young leads give committed performances, with Lautner's character allowed a larger share of the spotlight this time around.

If you buy in to the central romance, you’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll swoon. Otherwise, the lingering glances, lip-chewing and regular de-shirting may cause uncontrollable giggles.
