Dear Breaking Dawn,

It’s been TWO WEEKS since you came out to the public & we’ve sighed with you, cried with you, fell in love with you, been jealous of your immense wealth and now… well, it’s time to laugh at you. No, this isn’t a Break Down of the entire movie.. we do have lives, but it is a break down of some of our most favorite parts! Someone give Billy Burke & Anna Kendrick an Oscar already!

Watch out! Anna is about to kill it

UC: Moon. It’s been two weeks. And I gotta be honest.. we were in a “Breaking Dawn was SO GOOD (as compared to the other movies” haze for awhile there…. How are you feeling? I mean how are WE feeling, since we’re the same person usually except you have better hair? And I love cats more
Moon: HA. my one quality. Its been a week and some change, I’ve seen it 3 times and I gotta say I’m still feeling good about it
UC: Me too
Moon: it’s held up every time and each time I found something different to like… and also some things that made me go HUH?! cause it wouldn’t be a twilight movie without a few things we laughed at
UC: it would be SAD if we didn’t laugh I’d quit probably!!! Hear that movie makers (aka Stephenie & Wyck who we like to think loves us)??? Don’t make BD Part 2 too good
UC: I mean… I feel good enough that I’ve kinda been defensive (in my head- never out loud. I keep that baby tucked inside) when I hear criticism
Moon: oh i defs get defensive but i think it’s just because all the years of keeping it in wore off
UC: did you go ape shit on some 12 year olds who were complaining Jacob didn’t get enough screen time?
Moon: right, Steph & Wyck: PLEASE make sure to include some easter eggs for us. Some laughs. Some jessica stanley goodness too
UC: SERIOUSLY… a dream sequence or something… i dunno how else she’ll be in it
Moon: cant EVER let a movie go by without anna kendrick KILLING IT
UC: make Bella DEF run into a tree her first time running around. The Spider Monkey tree- FULL CIRCLE Y’ALL
Moon: jessica could be a Volturi wife. i don’t care
UC: Speaking of that.. Guaranteed Anna’s contract has a stipulation that says “okay- she’ll do this film BUT only if you let her Kill it AT LEAST ONCE. But probably more like 3 times”
Moon: and lauren mallory could be the other. she’s never been in any other twi film, but why not whip her out for the last one??
Moon: Anna’s contract includes her being able to be awesome and probably ad lib any of her lines. cause she’s better than the script

The Dexter of Vampires

Moon: Can I mention the flashback of edward being the “Dexter of vampires??” Though i totally loved the look/feel of the scene and well it’s Rob, i could have totally done with someone else’s backstory AND is that even in the books???
Cause i just thought he ran away from carlisle to be a bad boy for a few yrs. never that he was off killing bad guys
UC: Umm.. i THINk he was.. but I don’t think she ever went into detail?
Moon: its like mel mel stole a line from her own tv show
UC: HAHA she got confused a second.
Moon: her assistant mixed in a page from one of her dexter scripts
UC: She was like… wait.. the Ice Truck killer is in this script? This must be Dexter
Moon: also did that hat Edward was wearing even fit?? Robert must have my problem: big head syndrome – its hard for people like us to look good in hats

Catherine Hardwicke, on Screen

Moon: Also can we talk about how charlie / billy burke knocks it out of the park EVERY damn time??? its like him and anna kendrick in a battle for the 6th man award of the twilight cast
UC: YES. and win. Tied . Every year
Moon: put them in coach!!! EVERY TIME. i mean the misty eyes and the joke about Renee being old
UC: Yessss
Moon: and “don’t let me fall, dad…” “never” DIE. DEAD
UC: What a perfect mustached ma

Got a notice from the neighbors about needing to wear more clothes...

Moon: wait, first can we go back to renee and her slutty shorts???
UC: Yes- and how she FOUND OUT about the wedding from an invite?
Moon: is that for REAL???

UC: also…. do you feel like she is Catherine Hardwicke on Screen? Cuz i do
Moon: YES! I mean the Cullen’s didn’t even call her mom? or as renee’s too busy cutting the legs off her old denim bell bottoms to pick up??
UC: she lost her cell phone again. she’s no longer “Texting” She was with Cathy the Cougar at Happy Hour. Every day. And night. And morning actually. Loves mimosas
Moon: oh 100% renee is the embodiment of Cathi: the beach house in venice, the straw cowboy hat… all she’s missing is a drum circle in her front yard
UC: Gift idea for the Edward Cullen Family to give Grandma!!
Moon: some damn clothes — and a new djembe drum
UC: or maybe a framed picture of the first time Renesmee read her mind. Which was the last time Edward allowed it, since Renee was thinking about Phil without his baseball uniform on.

Moon gets WAY confused

Moon: OK i have a question since i’ve read BD the least
UC: Okay
Moon: in the book didnt renee and phil have a kid and bring him to the wedding???
UC: whattt?? really?? they have a baby???? Maybe?? worst fans of the year right here?
Moon: or am i confusing breaking dawn with the princess diaries??? [ Long pause] yea it’s defs the princess diaries. cause renee and anne hathaway’s mom are essentially the same person to me.
UC: hahahahahahhaha. did you google it?
Moon: WHOOPS had a rick perry moment there
UC:you’re right. that’s totally princess diaries
Moon: so yea renee and phil DO NOT have a child and bring him to bell and Edward’s wedding in Genovia. Where bella’s gran, julie andrews, is the queen. YEA that DID NOT happen
UC: they do sing songs at the bachelorette party though, right? And slide down the stairs? rose, Alice & Bella?
Moon: oh they def do some stair surfing with mattresses from their beds. with raven simone
UC: That’s SO Raven!
Moon: Bella kinda IS Mia Thermopolis minus the brows and the whole royal blood thing
UC: hahaha.. please tell me you just read her name and didn’t remember it
Moon: Oh No… I remember it..
UC: I’m so proud. Our very own “Princess Diaries Dork of the Day” right here…

The virgin tux

Moon: ANYWAYYYY back to the wedding which was like the BEST EVER!!! So in bella’s dream about the wedding…i like the subtle nod to edward’s virginity with his all white tux… which no man has ever looked good in. Its like welcome to 1981!!!
UC: A virgin in 1981. So hot
Moon: he was only missing a mullet
UC: And the dress… I mean… it’s like they WANTED us to freak out & think WTF IS THIS DISASTER, and then wow us with the amazing REAL thing
Moon: it was nice but it was too modern/david’s bridal… i mean ALFRED ANGELO/mall type dress. Too generic for Bella’s dress
UC: they wanted people to ALMOST walk out
Moon: i like that it was strapless because it made bella look like she was walking down the aisle naked for a few secs. like those awful dreams here you show up to class naked
UC: i know. I liked that. Because for a hot second I thought we might see Edward Naked. Then I thought for another hot second about what a cold, white penis might look like. And got scared
Moon: instead we see them on a pile of bodies. AMAZING
UC: And then I was glad it was a dream sequence. Didn’t want to be more scared than I am of normal penises. Also I just made it seem like I only like Black penises, which is true
Moon: i wanted them on top of the bodies to be their cake topper, thats what it made me think of
UC: I thought black penises. you thought cakes
Moon: i’m purer than you
UC: so much purer. White tux purer
Moon: ok so besides the replica bella’s dress, they should sell the bella and edward bride and groom on top of dead bodies as a cake topper in stores. SYNERGY! Are you listening marketing dept??? i know you are.
UC: of course they are. or at least the company that made that vampire dildo is. Still waiting for our commission checks on that one!!
Moon: Srsly. we’e talked about the VAMP enough. I hope they at least sent one to rob. great white elephant regift for him– and make everyone think they modeled it after his REAL… thing

Less Penises, after the jump!

Charlie’s a Great Cop

I'm such a great cop

Moon: The Speeches were up next!! the BEST EVER!!! that scene made me laugh out loud every time i saw it. Especially charlie… “cause i’m a cop… i hunt things…” “though i haven’t figured out i’m in the home of vampires, my daughter is marrying one and they’re feuding with my best friends son and his gang of WEREWOLVES. I’m TOTALLY a great cop guys. really.”
UC: “I clean my gun. While Drinking. I’m a great cop guys”
“My daughter disappeared and went overseas & I never investigated why. I’m a great copy guys”
Moon: “My daughters bedroom window is always open and we live in washington where it always rains and is like 20 degrees and I’ve never noticed I’m a great cop guys!”
UC: “She has sleepovers with her boyfriend every night & I’ve never noticed- and I’ve even walked in there & he just hid behind the door- i’m a great cop guys!”
We get it. Charlie’s a great cop…. Who gives even GREATER speeches
Moon: FOR REALZZZ. maybe he should be a speech teacher instead of a cop. JUST SAYING

Go back to Canada, Jake!

Congrats guys! Have you seen my phone?

UC: so then they get married…. and party.. and JAKE shows up, and gives Bella the cutest bear hug of all time
Moon: and makes me want to cry… pink cheeks… heart beat.. STOP IT JAKE!!! go back to canada i cant DO THIS!!
UC: I mean. they are cute together. like brother sister- “i’m gonna fall in love with that thing that is currently an egg traveling through your fallopian tube”- like. I mean seriously.. probably AT that moment the egg started to travel, right? It probably started b/c Jake was near
Moon: she should check her iPeriod App. She should know she’s ovulating
UC: oh sister does NOT have one of those… we know that for a fact- things that you don’t know when you’re 18 and get married. or b/c her mom is a flake and never taught her
Moon: and that weepiness isn’t because of jake or the wedding or the best day of her life etc. Thatss why we have apps for this shit now. ABSENT PARENTING!!! Renee’s too busy launching her over 40 karaoke night in jacksonville at the local Fridays to tell Bella about ovulation. THANKS iPERIOD
UC: she would’ve texted if she could, but … well, we know what happened to her phone (actually we DON’T know that’s the problem…)
Moon: renee left it in the batting cages during twilight and forgot. since she repells technology and all
UC: wait.. do we SEE Phil? i forget
Moon: other things she repels: motherhood, pants, talbots and chicos. we see him next to her at the wedding but thats it. e could be in Biil Tancredi’s Rascall Flatt’s cover band for all i know. Kinda looks the tyoe [UC/Moon note— a story we STILL haven’t told..!]
UC: Yeah. big muscles. probably plays a decent Bass
Moon: apparently he was at the premiere and i probably called him security and asked him to remove the weird french camera guy and reporter lady from behind us. TRUE STORY!! i really have NO clue what phil looks like.
UC: I really hope the guy you thought was security WAS the real life Phil. I would’ve loved that. That’s like if asked Solomon Trimble at the after party to refill our champy!!!
Moon: oh and i definitely think I asked asked Solomon Trimble to give me some of those eggrolls the Pattinsons loved so much

Who was… THAT?

Moon: ok so i have a burning question…. no, i’m not ovulating.. My question is WHO THE HALE was the random wolf in the wolfpack who just showed up in a sleeveless plaid shirt?! like they NEVER explained who he was– just a little wolf guy who appeared in the group. Are they recruiting at the high school now or did they put an ad in shapeshifter magazine? Maybe it was take your little cousin to work day on the rez?
UC: HAHAHAHAHHAHA. Was he with Jake? I don’t remember him. It’s NOT boo Boo?
Moon: No.. not Bo-Bo. some other random. I’m trying to find a group pic. dude someone needs to cap the whole movie!!! this is the most annoying part of a new movie coming out

Bella was born this way

Edward I was BORN this way- with things sticking out of my cheeks

Moon: So pregnant emaciated Beller looked AMAZING and scary and creepy
UC: SOOOOO creepy.. Like is this Twilight’s Oscar? Make up people?
Moon: i heard she lost some pounds to help out with the emaciated look which i don’t know where she lost it from since she’s like a buck ten soaking wet
Moon: they should get a nom. her face looked crazy. i mean clearly they put on some prosthetics to make it super gaunt
UC: can they do that? make you look GAUNT by adding things? I thought there was awesome shading of makeup too
Moon: there was only a few times when i was like what is that thing sticking out of her cheek?? made me think of lady gaga when she was doing that prosthetic make up. i kept thinking renesmee was gonna jump out of Bella and they were doing to sing and dance to Born This Way
UC: hahahahaahaha what an appropriate song

That’s all folks! What did we miss? Still lovin’ the movie?

UC & Moon
