So, Bridget Jones (Renée Zellweger) is now in her forties and single again, but oops, she gets pregnant and is unsure who the father is. It could be Mark Darcy (Colin Firth) or a dashing and handsome American named Jack (Patrick Dempsey). This is a film about love, respect and commitment. Who is really committed to, not only her, but the forthcoming child? She has a career but really it is a way of earning money and not important. Some colleagues are friends and some are not. That is what is important. Not money, status, being powerful but loving, having dignity, wisdom and enjoying family and real friends and, of course, life. Everything else isn’t. That is the premise of this daft, but enjoyable film.
What is great about this film is that it IS hilariously funny. Plenty of British humour and stupidity, but with a dash of redeeming splendour as we are laughing with them not at them. The film works because you can relate to the daft things you see on the screen like singing manically on the sofa to your favourite pop sound or getting stuck in those stupid, circular, revolving doors when you are about to give birth. Suffice to say, if you want cheering up, this is the film to see.
Please follow and thanks for reading…

I see they’ve gone against the story in the book. Admittedly, the book is a little bit drearier. I like the idea of Patrick Dempsey as the other guy though. Hope it’s Colin’s baby in the end!!!
I have watched Bridget Jones years ago and was not aware there is a second film out or coming out. I remember the old film as being light and funny. British humor is distinct, isn’t it? Anyway, I ain’t even thinking about values and what have you on the story itself, the character, and how they relate to real life. When it comes to movies, take lessons that are positive, and sit back enjoy.
