It’s been 12 years since we were read an entry in Bridget Jones’s Diary. 12 years! And tomorrow, September 16, Bridget Jones is back with a whole net set of entries — and a new kind of adventure. Oscar® winners Renée Zellweger and Colin Firth are joined by Patrick Dempsey for the next chapter of the world’s favorite singleton in Bridget Jones’s Baby.
Bridget Jones’s Baby
After breaking up with Mark Darcy (Firth), Bridget Jones’s (Zellweger) “happily ever after” hasn’t quite gone according to plan. 40-something and single again, she decides to focus on her job as top news producer and surround herself with old friends and new. For once, Bridget has everything completely under control. What could possibly go wrong?
Then her love life takes a turn and Bridget meets a dashing American named Jack (Dempsey), the suitor who is everything Mr. Darcy is not. In an unlikely twist she finds herself pregnant, but with one hitch … she can only be fifty percent sure of the identity of her baby’s father.
We recently has a Girl’s Night Out at a local screener of the movie and had a fabulous time! I laughed more through Bridget Jones’s Baby than I did the other two installments. As a child of the 80’s, I must admit that Patrick Dempsey joining the cast was a huge plus for me. He brought an excellent new twist to the romance between Bridget and Mr. Darcy, and one that played out well on the screen. In fact, the chemistry between all three of the characters was superb and the movie seemed to flaw seamlessly throughout. Not to mention, the witty remarks and awkward situations the three often found themselves in kept you waiting for more.
Oh, and if there wasn’t enough comedic talent on the screen, fellow Academy Award® winner Emma Thompson joins the cast and her role as Bridget’s Obstetrician is spot on! The faces and one-liners she pours out are perfect.
