Cheerful comedy entertainment.

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. They try to set her up with Mark (Colin Firth), the visiting son of one of their neighbors.
This movie could have fell flat on it's face by it's cliche story about a women that needs a man in her life, normally I hate those movies but this one I like, because the movie itself knows what it is and tries to be something new and clever with it's story and it's main heroine, and that's what made this movie worked.
The writing in this movie took all the same story that has be recycled over and over again and made something good out of it, taking away the stuff that we seen before and putting something new and clever. This has to be Renée Zellweger best role that she was in. Playing the cheeky, caring and witty person that she is. The rest of the cast Colin Firth, Hugh Grant and Jim Broadbent did a great job in they roles. My only nick pick with the movie is the ending for me. It's not a terrible ending but it could have been better.
