As usual, the film is pretty trope-heavy, with most of them being {{lampshade|Hanging}}d.²²The film is a parody of the Literature/{{Twilight}} saga, and was fairly successful at the box office, perhaps indicating that if there's one thing the public loves to mock more than Creator/SeltzerAndFriedberg, it's ''Twilight''. While most critics panned the film overall, many of them noted that Jenn Proske's [[DullSurprise dull-eyed]] Creator/KristenStewart impression almost saves it. In early 2011, the film also earned the distinct honor of competing with ''Twilight'' '''itself''' for ''four'' UsefulNotes/{{Golden Raspberry Award}}s, including Worst Picture.²²Not to be confused with YourVampiresSuck. ''Definitely'' not to be confused with the ''other'' Vampire parody, ''Suck: Vampires Rock''.²²----²!!This film contains examples of:²²* AdvertisedExtra: Notice how "Lady Gaga" is on the cover of the movie itself (the page picture above). She (or rather an actress playing her) appears for a single throwaway joke ''that's actually in the trailer almost in its entirety''.²* ArtisticLicenseBiology: Becca can rip her father's (real biological) moustache off. It comes off in one piece, leaving behind a moustache-shaped injury²%%* ArtisticLicensePhysics: PlayedForLaughs.²%%* BatterUp[=/=]OffWithHisHead: Edward, to [[strike: James]] Jack.²* BeardOfSorrow: Edward starts growing one after breaking up with Becca. ²* BetterThanABareBulb: Pretty much every single trope to be played straight in the Twilight Saga is {{lampshade|Hanging}}d in this.²* BlackComedy: Edward at one point is forced to juggle an apple, a bowling ball and a baby before he catches them in Becca's bag, with the baby landing in second place. MakesJustAsMuchSenseInContext, to be honest.²* BlatantLies: The trailers actually went so far as to ''make up acclaiming reviews'' by "reviewers" with {{punny name}}s such as "Oliver Klozeoff".²* BookEnds and/or {{Flashback}}: Like the ''Twilight'' films, the film starts with a scene from later on. Here, though, it's played for laughs.²-->'''Becca's narration''': Oh, wait, you've already seen this bit.²** There's a hard zoom on Becca's mouth at the beginning and end.²* ButtMonkey: ²** Becca's father. [[EpicFail The guy in a wheelchair can kick his ass.]]²** Becca herself. She gets violently picked on first day at school, gets bricks falling down on her when in her room and Jennifer throws a champange bottle in her face while screaming "bitch!"²%%* CampGay: The werewolves (except Jacob).²%%* CompressedAdaptation: covering ''Twilight'' and ''New Moon''.²%%* {{Dominatrix}}: Becca dresses in this outfit at one point.²%%* EatingTheEyeCandy: Jacob's first ShirtlessScene.²%%* EmoTeen: Lampshaded constantly.²* FanDisservice²--> '''Edward''': The only thing that doesn't stop aging is your ass. [[{{Foreshadowing}} It gets pretty wrinkly down there...]]²* FanService:²** Lampshaded by Jacob.²-->'''Becca''': Why'd you take your shirt off?\²'''Jacob''': It's in my contract ''[[AsideGlance [gives camera unimpressed look]]]''²** Played straight with [[FemaleGaze Edward's exposing scene]].²** And [[MaleGaze Becca in the leather dominatrix outfit]].²%%* GangstaStyle: "I'm a killer!"²* GrossUpCloseUp:²** When Edward uses [[ParodyNames Derric]] as a HumanShield, there are some [[{{Squick}} disturbing]] close-ups of his injuries.²** Edward's naked, 109-year-old butt. It takes up the entire frame. ''Twice''.²%%* HammerSpace: Becca's backpack²* HandOrObjectUnderwear: The infamous sparkly vampires of ''Twilight'' are parodied by Edward having a [[RuleOfFunny disco ball]] covering his, [[StealthPun um...]]²%%* HowWeGotHere: The opening.²* KarmicDeath: At the end of the movie, a Jacob fangirl kills Edward, only to die by a vampirized-just-then Becca.²%%* KryptoniteProofSuit: SPF 500 sunscreen. It's the freakin' page picture.²%%* NextSundayAD²%%* NoFourthWall: See FanService above.²%%* ParodyNames: Pretty much everyone.²* ProductPlacement: All over the place, though BlandNameProduct also comes up.²* ProtagonistCentredMorality: Edward's "keep Bella safe at all costs" attitude in ''Literature/{{Twilight}}'' is parodied by giving him a tendency to actively put random people in harm's way every time Becca is threatened. ''[[InsaneTrollLogic Including Becca herself]]''.²* RedundantParody: The lampshade on Jacob's constant shirtlessness? The ''Literature/{{Twilight}}'' movies already did that, several times.²%%* RomanticVampireBoy: As with everything else parodied an PlayedForLaughs ²* OurVampiresAreDifferent: They obey multiple vampire 'rules', but only the ones that can be played for laughs at the time.²* OurWerewolvesAreDifferent: Some of them are actually chihuahuas...²%%* RuleOfFunny: The only reason why ''anything'' happens in this movie.²* ShoutOut:²** In addition to the entire plot being based off of the ''Twilight Saga'', there are also references to ''Literature/AliceInWonderland'', ''Series/JerseyShore'', ''Series/TheVampireDiaries'', ''Series/TrueBlood'', ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'', ''Series/WizardsOfWaverlyPlace'', Music/LadyGaga, and Music/TheBlackEyedPeas.²** The Team Edward vs. Team Jacob fight is a ShoutOut to ''Twilight'''s infamous FanDumb.²* ThisIsForEmphasisBitch: "Team Jacob, bitch!"²* VisualPun: When the Chinese takeout guy is sacrificed so Edward can get Becca out of there.²--> '''Edward:''' "Hurry! They'll be hungry again in half an hour!"²%%* WarmBloodbagsAreEverywhere: Again, played for laughs.²%%* YourVampiresSuck: ''Obviously''.²----
