Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason
Basically, the original plot is back again in this sequel, but it feels like a photocopy of a photocopy of a photocopy. The plot picks up six weeks after the close of the first film with Bridget (Renée Zellweger) in a happy relationship with Mark Darcy (Colin Firth); but not for long. Bridget is wracked with jealousy over Darcy's time away from her, which appears to involve a potential suitor (Jacinda Barrett) and doubt about her physical appearance and mental insecurities. And, it's all made worse by the reappearance of philandering Daniel Cleaver (Hugh Grant). Unsurprisingly Bridget finds herself trying to ski, trying unsuccesfully to get dressed, and parachuting into a pig sty. But the humanity that we remember in the first film seems to be just a desperate kind of slapstick this time. Although, some of it is genuinely amusing, but the most funnier scenes seem to be not very inventive retreads of the original film. Beeban Kidron directed the movir based on a screenplay by Andrew Davies, Helen Fielding (the book's author), Richard Curtis, and Adam Brooks. But all together they've only come up with a mildly amusing sequel.
