Who would do a better job of giving a proper analysis of Twilight, teen girls or movie critics? Teen girls would be much more likely to enjoy the film, but they won't give you a review with much substance. If you're going by the quality of a film, then which side do you trust? We're talking quality here, not how much teenyboppers will enjoy a movie, so why would the misguided opinion of teenyboppers mean more than critics? Which side can do a better job of assessing the quality of a movie is what's important.
