It ain't "well-made" if it's "unintentionally funny", Robert. *Sigh*

I think he means that the filmmakers knew what they were doing but the bad acting made some moments unintentionally funny

Mmmh... I wonder why such a great critic would review this crap. I respect him you know, although I lost all credibility to him after he gave an A+ to the preposterous Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2.

And you think this load of hogwash is better or even comparable to Harry Potter... Lmao.

Work on your reading comprehension. He said this movie was crap. He also said that Harry Potter didn't deserve and A+. That's not equating the two.

I don't see how him giving that score to one of the year's best movies is preposterous.

Big money grab for producers living off Twilight name from the pass series.

Basically too long and slooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Did I mention slow? Intensely slow. Two hours was not needed to create this lackluster shallow movie.

Here is the movie in a nutshell: *****SPOILER ALERT***** Marriage and banging=50% pregnancy=45% and 5% action (yea you wait for what feels like 1hr into the movie for anything exciting to happen). Yep that was whole story line.

Luckily I got the tickets for free or I would have feel more disappointed paying to see this crap.

By the way I thought the other series were actually good and disagree with the critics in the past; however, I think the critics are right on this one.

Kristen Stewart's GIGANTIC forehead is unintentionally funny.

This movie sucked balls. Shouldn't have split the book into two movies. The movie really lacked dialogue. How did they spend $110million on that rubbish? Wedding, pregnancy, bad pregnancy & small fight.

Why would a well-made film get a rotten review Richard? I just don't get it even though I don't like the series or the cast either.

Alexander is technically a well-made movie. But it still manages to suck.

Actually, I think the humor was intentional.

Attended this film b/c my niece wanted to see it. I thought I was watching an SNL skit! I was looking around the theatre & wondering, am I missing something & are these people really enjoying this sh.t! No in-depth storyline, horrendous acting, sterile characters, pretentious, etc. I could go on & on. How did this movie make as much money as it did world wide. I don't get it. Not a great reflection on the intelligence,wittiness, or depth of our youth!

Yeah, like at the part:
"What do you want to call our daughter?"
"I thought, since our moms were called Renee and Esme... we'd call her Reneesme!"

Movies That Motivate

Rebecca Webster

I‚??ve seen all the Twilight movies and have enjoyed them thoroughly. Sometimes sequels take the original story in a totally different direction that interferes with the natural flow of the story, but this did not. It was as if it was the day after the ‚??the eclipse sequel‚??. This movie did seem to take a little too long before the action got started. After all, I am an action movie lover. But that maybe because lingered on the love scenes a little longer than I would have liked. The wedding was just breathtaking. I wish I could have afforded such lavish honeymoon when I got married years ago. But once the action started‚?¶it didn‚??t stop. Which I really loved! And when the movie was at its best it was over. I can‚??t wait to watch the last sequel. I would even pay someone to get my hands on an exclusive copy. I rate this movie‚?¶.A MUST SEE! www.moviesthatmotivate.com

overall I feel sorry for the Actors who had to work with the verbal Vomit of Rosenzwerg and Meyer

This was by far the most torturous experience of 2011 and maybe even the entire franchise. Fuck Stephanie Meyer, that no talent whore.
