Just got back from afternoon showing (went out to dinner after) with my son.
Ok, thought provoking storytelling it ain't. Entertaining? Yes, it was; an improvement over Twilight in fact. Stewart toned down the "take gulps of breath between every word" that she was using, I guess to show Bella's lack of confidence, but it was irritating as hell in Twilight.
The werewolves, and the actors that played them, stole the show. I was never 'team Jacob' from the books, but he was the better choice over mopey 'wanna kill myself' Edward.
So overall, entertaining for me, who loves a good campy vampire tale--even if it is a 'teen romance'. No screaming girls at the afternoon showing, but they were lined up when we left
ETA: The only thing that Twilight has over New Moon was its soundtrack...I was dissapointed that New Moon didn't have a strong soundtrack
