A lot or a little?

The parents' guide to what's in this website.

Positive Messages

The site focuses on being respectful, with rules for chatting that include, "If you don’t have anything nice to say then don’t say anything at all."

Violence
Sex

Movie trailers feature some kissing, sexual tension, and shirtless guys.

Language

The moderated chat room includes guidelines for keeping language at a PG-13 level. Chatters use the word "suck" frequently. Content supplied by the site is perfectly tame.

Consumerism

There are ads throughout the site, mainly Twilight and movie-themed. The home page for instance features ads for car insurance, shoes, Amazon and of course, New Moon merchandise.

Drinking, Drugs & Smoking

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that if you're OK with your kids reading the Twilight book series or watching the related movies, then this site is perfectly acceptable, too. There are numerous ads floating around this site, so be careful of teens being tempted by Twilight merchandise. Although the main page of this site focuses on New Moon gossip and updates, things stay positive and aren't too tabloid.

Is it any good?

Some Twilight fan sites can be too basic, while others can seem intimidatingly obsessed. But not the Web site NEW MOON THE MOVIE. This is a light and fun site that combines gossip with good-natured debate. New Moon is a clean site that doesn't burst at the seams with content. Instead it's got nice big graphics and super current updates in anticipation of the film's release (including a countdown clock!). Where else are you going to hear about possible Twilight-themed kids' meal toys or the latest Robert Pattinson sighting? Readers hungry for conversation will enjoy the simple and well-mannered chat space that lets readers gush in mass  their allegiance to Team Edward or Team Jacob -- or both.

Online interaction: Visitors can chat as "guests" or become members of Chat Roll, the web service that provides chatting capabilities for the New Moon site. Moderators are users selected by the site's administration who have proven themselves especially helpful. 

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Families can use kids' obsession with Twilight and New Moon as a starting point for discussing important relationship issues.

  • Families can talk about celebrity and gossip. Why are fans of the Twilight books interested in the personal lives of the film's actors? When does gossip go too far and become hurtful rumors?

  • See what we love about Twilight and talk to your teens about what they love about it.
