I Saw It

I did it I joined the ranks of millions of teenage girls and I rented Twilight. I could only watch first half but I think being exposed to that film for a good hour makes me a total expert in teenage girls and today's youth. This is what I've discovered about the youth of today.

Teen aged girls love boys with waxed eye brows this is also true of the Jonas brothers who my husband went to the bathroom with and found himself totally intimidated by their scarily perfect eyebrows.

Teen aged girls do not suddenly discover their hip hurts while they are watching the movie and excuse themselves at totally the best part to pop Advil and grab a heating pad

Teen aged girls love boys with lots and lots of make up including eye brow pencil, lots of mascara and plenty of lipstick.

Teen agers are still as mopey and distant as I was when I was 17.

Teen aged girls need to be locked away until adult hood for their own good because not only do they always want the boy who is the worst choice (I mean the guys dead and has to stop himself from eating her or goodness sake) but they go out with guys who are way too old for them (Like 130 years to old for them. What do these two have to talk about anyway? She grew up watching Dora and he grew up watching fire. I'm sure these two would have some really fascinating conversations)

Teen aged girls do not stop the movie when Edward and Bella are holding hands and he 's a glowy and cute and go to bed at 9pm cause they have a big day tomorrow

So that is my take on todays youth. Excuse me while I skip the rest of the film and go find the strongest lock made to get ready for Little S teen age years.

Hahahaha!! Ok, you know my view on the movie, can't get enough of it. :)

Now I am going to have to rent it. Waxed eyebrows? Hmm. Interesting in a bad way. And when you find said lock, post it to let me know. I'll need TWO. Sigh.

Susan said...

Ahh, makes you sad that today's girls missed the Davids. You know David Cassidy and Davy Jones. Those were the boys to love.

Erin, Nick and Merrick said...

Waxed eyebrows and all- you can't deny how cute that actor is!!
The movie wasn't that great, but the books are addicting.
As for locking up S- DO SO! I teach MIDDLE SCHOOL!

Brooke said...

haha! I just rented it from netflix so I should be able to watch it tomorrow!

Rebecca Ramsey said...

Wait a sec. Your husband was in a bathroom with the Jonas Bro.s?
Excuse me while I squeal.

Just kidding. I love that they have scary eyebrows. One day they'll be old men with big bushy gray eyebrows and hair growing out of their ears.

Colleen - Mommy Always Wins said...

Ha ha ha! Love your comment about Edward "watching fire". HEH!

April said...

LOL, teenagers scare me...

honeypiehorse said...

Yeah, what's with the eyebrow thing anyway?

adrienne said...

Would it help if I told you my daughter thought the movie was pretty lame?

April said...

My 11-year-old has given in to the peer pressure and just started reading it. I totally understand the desire for locks.

Kmommy said...

LOL! The movie was pretty lame compared to the book. I was pretty disappointed in the movie.
Not quite the kind of vampire movie I'm used to ;) Vampire teenage harlequin?

Veronica said...

Just catching up now.

Hi! *waves*

Sarah said...

Hahahaha - I loved this movie. Like a trip down memory lane. Only I didnt have a vampire. Or as much freedom. Or scarily made up friends. But I did have the bad boyfriend who smoked pot a few times.....good times, I tell ya, gooooddd times.

forgetfulone said...

I didn't like the book much, so I imagine I won't like the movie much, either. My daughter is begging for it.

Your are "spot on" with your take on teenage girls! Made me laugh, too. Thanks!

namaste said...

LOL! great movie review! now i have to check it out since it seems i'm the only person left who hasn't seen it.

Person(also known as Mommy) said...

I don't understand the fascination these girls have with pretty boys-I have always preferred guys like Hubby...manly men with big arms, very low maintenance requirements, and whose version of "manscaping" is putting on fresh deodorant.

The fact that I don't understand teenage girls makes me fear them even more.

Ali said...

Haven't seen it but I think I will have a crack at the books first. I am superstitious. Book has to be read before movie.

autumnesf said...

You forgot:

Teenage Girls have a death wish. Hmmm...I WANT the guy to bite me so I can be dead forever with him. (Isn't that called suicide???)

And teenage girls like controlling men. Watching over her every night while she sleeps? Obsess much???

Stacy said...

Teenage girls? What about all the adult women who've gone sappy over the undead? I just don't get it. Corpses creep me out, why would anyone want to date one?

Thank god my 16 yr old isn't into this. My daughter-in-law is, but then she just might be of the undead persuasion herself (did I just say that out loud?).

The Mrs. said...

I'm far worse then you I only know what twilight is b/c I keep passing the book in target on the way to get diapers.

Annie said...

I really enjoyed the books. The movie? A little too much angst for me. I mean really...was it a movie, or a horribly high school play? I couldn't tell.

I did think Edward was way hot though.

Mark said...

Have a nice weekend!

Chimera said...

Honey..err..what was your husband doing in the bathroom with the Jonas brothers in the frist place...? (and don't say waxing his eyebrows..)
Cuz xx

Debbie said...

I agree! We can be old foggies together!

Helen said...

It's intersting .. my almost 16 year old granddaughter watched it today and wasn't impressed ... I haven't seen it nor will I. Loved your well written commentary/review.

TattingChic said...

Teenage girls don't rent the movie Twilight, LOL! They use their daddy's money to go with all their friends, LOL!

Hope you stop on by for my 1st Blogoversary/100th post celebration! I'm even having a giveaway! Do come on over! Everyone is invited!!! :)

Pam said...

You really have to read the series first, then it's fun.Even dragged husband to the movie, which made him raise one eye-brow (unwaxed).
