Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason   ...   movie reviews
sun 2004-nov-28 00:13:36 pst   ...   permalink

Tonight we went to see Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason -- it was quite good. In fact, I think I actually liked it better than the first one. Though maybe that was because I had read (listened to) the first book before seeing the first movie, whereas I haven't read the second book. I dunno.

I thought I'd heard something about how in the second book, she meets Colin Firth, and that, what with Colin Firth playing Mark Darcy, they had actually worked Colin Firth as himself into the movie as well. Turns out in fact they just left that part of the book out. Not sure where I heard that though.

Oh, come to think of it, I do have a complaint though. I think Bridget's ineptitude is meant to be endearing -- I certainly find it so (though in real life, I'm not sure I would), and I think in the first movie Mark Darcy seemed to. But this time he seemed more to love her in spite of her ineptitude, and to be more frustrated or annoyed by it. Which was kind of too bad.

Regardless, my recommendation is basically just that if you liked the first one, you'll probably like this one too.
