Twilight is silly and melodramatic and hard to dislike in much the same way as its target audience, with a distinctly teenage sense of tragedy.
Haven't read the book, so I was fortunate to be clueless as to what to expect. (I only saw Twilight because my 32-year-old daughter read the book and was looking forward to the film. Thus, I was spying on her in a vampiric way.) However, I totally agree: silly and melodramatic, bordering on camp, but I couldn't dislike it, although I tried.

Hard to dislike? How about impossible to like? The majority of movie goers when I went were 17 . The movie was not geared toward the right crowd and absolutely stank.

This movie was a 2 hour long hybrid of Buffy and Dawson's Creek - not a good thing.
I know authors have the freedom to deliver their own takes on vampirism (or anything), but the whole "safe-under-cloud-cover" thing was stupid to me.
Also, Kristin Stewart looks like she's drunk all the time. Her little tantrum at the end of the movie was the most unconvincing acting I've seen. Ever.
