Eclipse [based on the book]

Okay, so for those of you who have been wise enough to avoid all the Twilight nonsense, here is a quick catch-you-up; a young girl called Bella moves to live with her father after her mother remarries in order to give the new relationship space. This is a sign of …

IMDb has this classified as a Drama and a Comedy. I’m not sure I see either. I know I didn’t enjoy it, so that rules it out as a comedy.
