Every creator knows they cant please everyone. Side note, not important really, but Twilight movies made 3.3 billion worldwide and the novel sold over 100 million copies. Stephenie Meyer made a lot of people happy with her books and the movies that followed. Twilight, has sold over 100 million copies, with translations into 37 different languages. Meyer was the bestselling author of 2008 and 2009 in the U.S., having sold over 29 million books in 2008, and 26.5 million in 2009.
I'm not arguing that Twilight wasn't successful, but it is well known that it wasn't well received.
"Twilight received mixed reviews from critics. Based on 219 reviews collected by Rotten Tomatoes, the film has a rating of 49%, with a weighted average score of 5.41/10." from Wikipedia.
Contless people made a mockery of Twilight and the many mistakes it made. Does "better love story than Twilight" ring a bell? Even the main actor, Robert Pattinson, has made many interviews stating how much he dislikes the saga, and how his portrayal of Edward Cullen stained his image.
Anyways, the argument "can't please everyone" is just a catch-all phrase for every criticism. The point still stands.
