Not as bad as it has been said to be. There are worst things in cinema, let alone the world, then this to worry about. Its no way near as good as Let The Right One In or Park Chan Wook's Thirst mind you.
Fucking hilarious. For a braindread vampire blockbuster for angsty tweens, every frame is dripping with such a unusual and pathetic awkwardness that its almost endearing. Bella is one astonishingly boring and unlikeable bitch but all her co-stars' campy angsty theatrics made this movie endlessly entertaining to me. I laughed my ass off. Its lovably and uniquely retarded.
I can not say this movie has the best story ever: it is not a "cliché", because it was one of the first stories with vampires and because this love we can almost experience is far from ordinary, but it is too unreal, perhaps... So people don't like it or they don't want to admit they do. I can't imagine other cast and the soundtrack is beautiful. I am a cureless romantic... Actually, I need to be to enjoy this taste.
