RadarOnline: Fan reaction and fansite reaction. You can see our previously released quote appearing here. You can also see quotes from TwiCrack, Cullen Boys Anonymous, Bella and Edward, and A Twilight Kiss.
HitFix: calling it She Said/Studio Said “Sadly, the biggest losers here are the fans who are getting caught in a tug of war between a rising star whose was extremely fan-friendly and a studio who has done everything possible to satisfy their constant hunger for new material. Is it going to take franchise author Stephenie Meyer to broker peace between everyone involved? One thing is clear, if you end up seeing Lefevre on Larry King Live or hearing her on Ryan Seacrest’s radio show over the next few days? Then it’s really gotten ugly.”
ReelzChannel: A brief look a fan reaction that runs run the serious to the sublime. It ends on some ironic quotes given that these quotes were from fans.
