13

Total number of times (in four movies) that Jacob appears shirtless - at least three times in the rain.

0

Number of times Jacob is shirtless in the first movie, "Twilight"

All the time

Number of times Taylor Lautner somehow gives the impression, during long pauses, that Jacob is thinking about taking his shirt off for lack of a better response to the situation

11

Number of times Bella does something klutzy

7

Number of times Bella does something klutzy in the first movie, "Twilight"

18

Number of times Edward is supposedly looking lustfully at Bella, but actually looks kind of nauseated

14

Number of times Edward and Jacob meet and sneer at each other, or are otherwise disdainful, as if smelling something bad (which, according to the books, they are)

3

Number of times Bella bleeds, accidentally incurring the sudden dramatic bloodlust of her vampire friends

Uncountable

Number of times you wonder, watching these movies, why vampires all have such fabulous hair
