Bridget Jones's Diary

(DVD - 2004?)
Average Rating: 4 stars out of 5.
Bridget Jones's Diary
This is the chronicle of the misadventures of a London single woman in her early 30s--a goodhearted, overweight, insecure, bumbling, and desperate-to-be-attached Everywoman Bridget Jones--a woman who loves men and loves sex. A true believer in the possibility of romantic fulfillment, on New Year's Day Bridget resolves to lose 20 pounds, cut down on alcohol, cigarettes, and sweets, and find the right man, or indeed, any man. Bridget charts her own progress in her diary, from "tragic spinster" to "wanton sex goddess," with an intrepid spirit, and a delightfully rueful sense of humor.

It has Colin Firth and Hugh Grant, so it's difficult to outright dislike. Not the best romantic comedy I've ever seen, but certainly not the worst.

I love the book, but only liked the movie, primarily because of the greater emphasis put of her romantic relationships instead of her friendships. Jude, Shazz, and Tom are fantastic, hilarious characters in the books, and are sadly more background in the film. Hugh Grant as Daniel Cleaver totally steals the show; this role is a nice departure from his usual lovable, slightly neurotic, leading man.

Quirky, fun movie. Hadn't seen this in several years but after seeing it again, I decided to buy the DVD. It's a movie that can always bring a smile to your face. Renée Zellweger is adorable in this role as the hapless but always optimistic Bridget. The film captures handsome and talented Colin Firth with some particularly sexy, penetrating gazes. Hugh Grant shows that he can be a humorous cad. Under Special Features, Renée discusses how she prepared for the movie - she moved to the UK several months before the shoot started and took a job in a publishing firm (incognito, of course). She also kept her British accent both on and off-screen such that Hugh Grant didn't realize she was Texan until the "wrap-up party". Pretty impressive dedication to the craft and it pays off.

I've been going crazy. I can't stop thinking about you, and thinking about what an idiot I've been. Christ, is that blue soup?

Bridget: Wait a minute; nice boys don't kiss like that.
Mark Darcy: Oh, yes, they f*ing do.

Mark Darcy: I don't think you're an idiot at all. I mean, there are elements of the ridiculous about you. Your mother's pretty interesting. And you really are an appallingly bad public speaker. And, um, you tend to let whatever's in your head come out of your mouth without much consideration of the consequences... But the thing is, um, what I'm trying to say, very inarticulately, is that, um, in fact, perhaps despite appearances, I like you, very much. Just as you are.
