HA! It would have been priceless had the film garnered an R-rating. All of those Twi-hards would have been so upset.

But seriously, the MPAA is a complete joke. It boggles the mind that so many people (especially in Utah) would allow an organization like this to determine what they can and cannot watch.

Hey, my kids and family members love it, but I will never understand our absolute and seemingly total fascination with vampires. Try counting the number of analogous TV shows and movies cashing in. Enough already!!!

Only the DNews would make an article about this.

My wife asked me if I wanted to go see Breaking Dawn with her and some friends and I very enthusiastically replied...heck no!

Boise, ID

My wife has forbidden me from watching these films with her, I just can't control my laughter. The honeymoon scene was hilarious. I am laughing right now.

The genre of sexed up teen vampires is as bizarre as 'reality' tv to me. Like the vampires, however, the genre speaks to things that won't die that probably should. Fortunately, I don't have to watch any of it. And, had it been rated R, none of the finger wagging or clucking around here would have kept anyone who wanted to see it from seeing it.

Can not wait to miss it!

OK, plebeians, go ahead and watch "Breaking Dawn." Then, watch a few episodes of "Downton Abbey" to restore the brain cells you lost.

I would likely give it an L for LAME just based on the previews I saw for it the other night while waiting for a different movie to start. I can't believe all of these women going for this "mommy porn".

I can't wait to see Red Dawn because I hear North Koreans invade Spokane and teenage vampires come to rescue. It sounds like a great flick, sort of like the Lost Boys meets Rambo...

I took 3 teenage boys to a prescreening tonight Nov 15. It was just as great as the others. We all plan to go again.

South Jordan, UT

Whew. That was close. Just think-the director had to change maybe 2 seconds of the entire film to earn a PG-13 rating. What an accomplishment. It will so much nicer and family friendly now. It's good to know that the overall imagery and decaying ideas of what passes for entertainment now can still be seen. (If I throw up now, would that make my comment PG13 or R??)

I find it very disappointing that this junk appeals to people whom I would otherwise believe to have a value system and good taste.

Centerville, UT

Why ‘Breaking Dawn – Part 2’ was almost rated R....Because the acting is so bad?


Because themes of incest, beastiality, sexual fixation on a child, and a man killing his wife so she will be with him forever are somehow inappropriate for preteens?

Sanpete, UT

My wife keeps telling me to read the books because I may like them...that's why I don't read them. I don't want to like them.

@Juice Box

And yet you keep reading the Dnews...FUNNY
