Funny British rom-com that points out it's character's flaws with a straight, but comical finger.

This is a really funny movie that has what could be a sad plot. Bridget makes some bad choices, but in the end things turn out splendidly. The last kiss of the movie made it worth watching the whole movie, but I must say Colin and Renee seemed to have a real chemistry.

Bridget Jones: "Now, I'll go home and... de-bunny".
The story is about a post-feminist, thirty-something British woman who has a penchant for alcoholic binges, smoking, and an inability to control her weight. While trying to keep these things in check and also deal with her job in publishing, she visits her parents for a Christmas party.

The writing in this movie took all …

Never let it be said that I will not suffer for my art because yes, I finally gritted my teeth and sat through Bridget Jones's Diary. And I got exactly what I was expecting. A piss-weak sitcom full of the kind of pseudo-observational humour that was starting to look tired by the end of the 80s. Hugh Grant is Hugh Grant again, and Renee Zellweger also suffers for her art by putting on two whole stone for her part for which she gamely falls over, models oversized pants and shows up to non fancy dress parties in playboy bunny outfits. All unbelievably lacking in originality, invention and (for me at least) laughs. But obviously I am not the target audience which clearly is the collection of self-perpetuating stereotypical 30 something women whose idea of a good time is lighting some candles …
