Bridget Jones's Baby Review

Excellent

As it's been 12 years since the last Bridget Jones movie, expectations aren't too high for this sequel. So it's a very nice surprise that this film stands on its own as a charming and often very funny romantic comedy while rounding off the trilogy in style. The cast is terrific, and the script bristles with snappy dialogue and witty characters that lead the audience down an unpredictable route to a complicated happy ending.

On her 43rd birthday, Bridget (Renee Zellweger) is finally content with her single life. Although her romantic past continues to torment her, especially when she runs into former flame Mark Darcy (Colin Firth) at a funeral. With a corporate shake-up underway at the TV news programme she produces, presenter Miranda (Sara Solemani) suggests that Bridget needs some sex to liven up her life, whisking her off to a music festival. There she has a cute, hot encounter with the dishy Jack (Patrick Dempsey). And a week later, she rekindles her romance with Mark when she learns that his marriage has ended. So when she discovers that she's pregnant, Bridget hasn't a clue which man is the father.

This premise offers plenty of scope for both thematic meaning and awkward plot turns, and the screenplay merrily dives right into all of it, mixing some silly slapstick with darker emotions as director Sharon Maguire maintains a breezy-comical tone. This kind of balance is difficult to get right, but the film feels effortlessly engaging.

After battling the dating scene and finally finding love with Mark Darcy, Bridget Jones is ready to take her relationship to the next stage - well, sort of. After years of thinking that Mark was all she wanted, she realises that their relationship isn't as close as it once was and decides to call it a day.

Back where she started, Bridget decides that the men in her life are just distractions, now it's time to get fully involved in her work and climb to the position she's always wanted. As things start to fall into place for Bridget, soon her love life begins to pick up speed too.

A fleeting meeting with Mr Darcy leads to the pair reuniting - temporarily at least - whilst Bridget is also being wooed by a smooth American called Jack, a man who doesn't have Darcy's prim and proper ways but is just as charming. Playing the field doesn't work out quite as easily as Bridget hoped as she falls pregnant. Now all she must do is find out which partner she wants to be with and more importantly, who the father is.
