Despite breaking records in the UK, ‘Bridget Jones’s Baby’ failed to make an impression at the US box office.
Bridget Jones’s Baby had a disappointing opening weekend at the US box office, taking just $8 million in North America and coming in third place in the charts. The third film in the Bridget Jones series had faired much better overseas, topping the charts in 24 countries.

In the UK it took $11 million in its opening weekend, becoming the best ever opening for a romantic comedy and for studio Working Title. Overall Bridget Jones’s Baby has made $30 million from 38 territories so far, including $4.2 million in Australia.

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.

Bridget is back again and the critics are saying this one was worth the wait.
Bridget Jones’s Baby has been praised by critics following its premiere on Monday, with most agreeing it was a welcome return to form for Renee Zellweger’s character. It’s been 12 years since we last saw Bridget on our screens and this time she’s approaching 40, pregnant and trying to work out who the baby’s father is.
Bridget Jones is back in Bridget Jones’s Baby
Writing in The Guardian, Peter Bradshaw told fans the new film was better than Bridget’s last outing, 2004’s The Edge of Reason. He describes the film as “something resembling a likeable, good-natured one-off TV holiday special.”

Dempsey’s character Dr. Derek Shepherd was shockingly killed off during the show's 11th season.
‘Grey’s Anatomy’ star Ellen Pompeo has opened up on the exit of her co-star Patrick Dempsey, who played her husband Dr. Derek Shepherd on the ABC series. Appearing on ‘The Ellen DeGeneres Show’ on Monday (April 25th) Pompeo joked: “It’s amazing how much you get done without a penis.”
Ellen Pompeo has spoken about the exit of her ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ co-star Patrick Dempsey.
Speaking about the show’s current 12th season DeGeneres told Pompeo: "It's doing very, very well. That’s amazing. And everybody thought because Patrick was leaving that it wouldn’t do well, but it’s doing very well.”

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.

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.

Bridget Jones is back and this time she’s caught in another love triangle, with a baby on the way.
Renee Zellweger is ‘stepping back with old friend’ Bridget Jones, the hapless singleton who she last played in 1999’s Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason. But this time things are slightly different. Yes Bridget has matured, but it hasn’t made her love life any less complicated, as the actress told Entertainment Weekly.
After leaving ‘Grey’s’, Dempsey is now focusing on his new role in ‘Bridget Jones’ Baby’.
When Dr Derek Shepherd met his end on ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ earlier this year fans were shocked, upset and left wondering why McDreamy had to meet such a sad end. But some speculated that problems between actor Patrick Dempsey and showrunner Shonda Rhimes caused her to decide to kill off the handsome doctor.
Patrick Dempsey is moving on from ‘Grey’s Anatomy’.
Now eight months on Dempsey has spoken to Entertainment Weekly about the end of his ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ run. When asked if he believed Rhimes was referring to him when she said she had in the past killed off characters when she didn't like the actor, Dempsey said: ‘I think she loves being provocative and that’s fine for who she is.’
The singer has tweeted a pic of himself and star Renee Zellweger after filming a cameo in the upcoming sequel.
His 'Two and a Half Men' co-star Jon Cryer came in second on the Forbes Magazine poll
Ashton Kutcher has topped the list of Highest Paid Actors in Television for a second year running, earning an estimated $24 million over the course of June 2012 and June 2013, according to Forbes Magazine. The star of the hit sitcom Two and a Half Men has made most of his money from his role on the Chuck Lorre show, as well as a considerable amount from his role as Steve Jobs in the biopic about the late Apple co-founder.
Like the man he portrayed in the flop biopic, Kutcher also has a keen business sense, and has made some of his millions by investing in a number of emerging businesses. The Jobs actor has stakes in tech companies Airbnb, Foursquare and Path, however it is his role as billionaire Walden Schmitt that has earned him the largest chunk of his impressive yearly earnings. The Forbes estimate does not take into account any of his business earnings, only what he has earned through the entertainment industry.
Kutcher's Two and a Half Men co-star Jon Cryer also made the list, coming in at second with an estimated $21 million in earnings between 2012 and 2013. Angus T. Jones, who is no longer a series regular after a video of him condemning the show as "filth" emerge online, also made the list thanks to his role on the show. Although his stint as a regular on the series has since ended, having recently been replaced by Amber Tamblyn as a series regular, Jones is still likely to make a considerable amount of regular income thanks to the show's syndication.

Few people knew that Grey's Anatomy dreamboat Patrick Dempsey is also a budding entrepreneur, and (probably) even fewer people knew that the actor uses his superpower-like charm to great effect in his new role as a business magnate - or at least that's what Starbucks claim.
The coffeehouse giants are up in arms over the recent auctioning of bankrupt coffee chain Tully's, which saw Dempsey's investment company, Global Baristas, make the winning bid despite offering a lower bid than they had. The Seattle-based coffee company have said that Dempsey's 'McDreamy' persona helped to win the now-defunct chain's remaining stores, a business technique that they believe should not be stood for. In a statement given after the auction, the actors charm and good looks “may have impeded financing for qualified bidders and creates the appearance that its bid was favored."
Thats quite a bold statement to make, if not a little absurd too, and as such Dempsey himself has hit back at the coffee giants and reiterated that his bid was nothing more than a genuine attempt to save the jobs seemingly lost by Tully's bankruptcy. He told ABC's KOMO-TV in Seattle:"To keep all those jobs in the company intact, that was a big turning point when it was decided that if you break it up, it's not something that's acceptable. I think some of the players involved in this deal want to take those jobs away, and you're looking at an economy that's rough to get jobs. I went by one of the stores yesterday and the employees are deeply concerned. That's one thing we care deeply about."
Continue reading: Patrick Dempsey's Charm Helped Him Win Tully's, Says Starbucks
Patrick Dempsey - star of Grey's Anatomy - has had his $9.15 million bid for Seattle-based Tully's Coffee accepted, beating out hot-drink-giants Starbucks in the process.
"I think some of the players involved in this deal want to take those jobs away, and you're looking at an economy that's rough to get jobs," Dempsey told ABC's KOMO-TV in Seattle. "I went by one of the stores yesterday and the employees are deeply concerned. That's one thing we care deeply about." Starbucks reportedly offered to buy 13 of Tully's company-owned stores in the area of Puget Sound plus 12 locations within Boeing Co. offices. But Dempsey didn't want it to fall in their hands. "I'm thrilled that we won and I'm even more excited about saving Tully's Coffee and its hundreds of jobs," he said. "Tully's is a great company with committed employees, and with its base in Seattle, one of the world's greatest cities, I'm confident we will be able to successfully build the brand and help grow the economy. "
"We are very encouraged and excited that Patrick Dempsey's commitment to Tully's, to the company, the stores and perhaps most importantly, in keeping the members of Tully's family in place as they are today," Scott Pearson, CEO and President of TC Global, Inc., said in a statement. "This is a big win for Seattle."
You may have wondered if TV heartthrob Patrick Dempsey was just a pretty face? Whether, in real life, he would actually look into your eyes, hand you a cup of steaming coffee and ask you how your day went?
Ok, you probably weren’t wondering that, but the coffee part is sort of true. Apparently Gray’s Anatomy’s McDreamy (horrible nickname, work on that, writing staff) has bought out Tully’s – a struggling coffee chain from his native Seattle. Dempsey broke the news on Twitter earlier this week, with the following status update: “We met the green monster, looked her in the eye and… SHE BLINKED! We got it! Thank you Seattle!” The “green monster” he is referring to is coffee shop giant Starbucks, whom Dempsey’s own company Global Baristas Llc. beat out in the fight for Tully’s.
So, what’s in store for the actor and the coffee chain now? Well, firstly, Dempsey will probably have to deal with the legal dispute that Starbucks reps promised. If he comes out on top, an complete revamping of Tully’s is coming – the name and company ethic will remain, but almost everything else will be changed. “Tully’s is a great company with committed employees and with its base in Seattle, one of the world’s greatest cities, I’m confident we will be able to successfully build the brand and help grow the economy,” Dempsey said in a statement.

Gray’s Anatomy heartthrob Patrick Dempsey will be serving it up hot – the coffee that is – as he just managed to buy out the popular Seattle coffee chain Tully’s.
The TV star with coffee shop mogul ambitions announced the news over Twitter: "We met the green monster, looked her in the eye, and...SHE BLINKED! We got it! Thank you Seattle!” Dempsey’s bid won over the almighty coffee giant – Starbucks – and his company – Global Baristas Llc. will now give the local coffee chain a makeover, while still retaining the brand’s overall image. That’s the plan, at least. According to Dempsey, the small coffee chain needs to find its identity. "It's a much smaller chain that has a lot of potential that hasn't been given the proper care," he said, quoted by ABC News.
It’s a rare defeat for Starbucks and what probably stings even more is that it happened on home ground, but it may not be time for Dempsey to celebrate just yet. In a statement released by Starbucks, the company insinuated that the sale would be disputed and a final decision wouldn’t be made on the case until January 11. Whether Dempsey wins or not, will certainly be interesting to see what happens to Tully’s under the new management.
Patrick Dempsey is McDreamy in real life as well. One of the stars of the hit American medical drama Grey's Anatomy, playing the desirable neurosurgeon, Dr Shepherd, or as the other characters refer to him- McDreamy- Dempsey has spent a lot of time in Seattle for many years, as the show is set and filmed there. The actor has come to love the city so much that he's leading a pack of investors, set to buy the bankrupt coffee chain Tully's and turn it around.
"I'm excited about the opportunity to save hundreds of jobs, give back to Seattle and become a larger part of the economic growth and fabric of the community," he told E!. "I've always loved this city, and with the purchase of Tully's Coffee, I plan to spend a lot of time in Seattle and at the stores connecting with the community and growing the Tully's brand. It looks like Seattle may be my home away from home in the very near future."
A bankruptcy auction is set to be held in early January in which Dempsey and the rest of his business partners will be bidding. We hope he wins, there's almost nothing better in life than the prospect of being served coffee by Patrick Dempsey. According to Vanity Fair the buy would save 500 jobs and be just another of the good deeds the actor has done for Seattle based institutions- he's also raised almost half a million dollars for the children's hospital there.
Four words: Neve Campbell, 'Grey's Anatomy'. That's right; the 'Scream' actress is set to become the latest cast addition to ABC's medical drama.
Before you get excited, however, the stunning 39-year-old star is only confirmed to appear in two episodes of the long running series to play one of Patrick Dempsey's heartthrob character Dr. Derek Shepherd's four sisters. Two of his sisters, Amelia and Nancy, have previously made appearances in the series played by Caterina Scorsone and Embeth Davitz respectively. The other two siblings have yet remained elusive though we do know that one of them is a psychiatrist called Kathleen; Neve Campbell's exact role is, however, vague.
Campbell is best known for her roles on 1996 horror movie 'Scream' as Sidney Prescott and its subsequent three sequels as well as the 1994 to 2000 TV series 'Party Of Five' in which she played Julia Salinger. Talking of 'Scream' though, Campbell and Dempsey's first onscreen work together was for 'Scream 3' in which they shared a romantic connection, with Dempsey starring as the law abiding Detective Mark Kincaid with an unrelenting crush on Sidney.

Giselle lives in the conflation of every single Disney trope ever, in an animated, magical fairy-tale kingdom full of songs of her one true love. The evil queen (who is also a wicked stepmother) can't have some upstart marry the prince and move in on her territory, so she banishes Giselle from animation to reality: New York, to be precise.

The list in this category is long, and the quality broad, ranging from To Sir, with Love (Sidney Poitier straightens up hooligans) to Sunset Park (Rhea Perlman coaches hoops!). Instead of sliding into pitfalls of predictability, writer Richard LaGravenese (The Fisher King, Beloved), who also directs, relies on straight, unforced dialogue delivered by a fine cast. Like many similar films, this one happens to be based on truth.

It's the mid-1970s at a proper boys' prep school in DC, and Kline's Hundert encounters his first splash in the face with the cold water of life outside revered academia when he meets the father of a mischievous underachieving student. The stern dad, a brash U.S. senator, scolds Hundert: "You will not mold my son, I will mold my son". With a dose more sympathy for the kid, Hundert befriends him and watches him turn into a studying machine.

Making only a minimal effort to be any different or better than the hundreds of other forgettable, predictable, almost-married-the-wrong-guy romantic comedies that have come before it, "Sweet Home Alabama" has the benefit of a talented, appealing cast and the burden of being entirely dependent on clichés to drive its story.
Reese Witherspoon stars as Melanie Carmichael, a rising-star designer in New York's fashion world who is downright giddy about her new engagement to the political mover-and-shaker son (Patrick Dempsey) of the city's image-conscious mayor (Candice Bergen). In the movie's most romantic scene, Mr. Wonderful proposes by getting down on one knee at Tiffany's, which he's arranged to stay open after hours, and telling her to pick any ring she wants.
But there's one little wrinkle Melanie's fiancé doesn't know about: Before she can marry him, she'll have to divorce her hayseed childhood sweetheart back in small-town Alabama. A handsome, blue-eyed charmer named Jake (Josh Lucas, "A Beautiful Mind") with a playful Paul Newman smirk, she did nothing but fight with him once the magic wore off their relationship, so Melanie bailed out to follow her ambition.

A routine aerial shot swoops down over the grounds of an architecturally classic boarding school while a buoyant, sanguine score bleats with insistently lyrical French horns in the opening moments of "The Emperor's Club." And that's all most moviegoers will need to divine everything there is to know about the picture's musty, fond-memory-styled milieu of plucky, Puckish schoolboys and the dedicated, kindly educator who inspires them.
It's a movie that seems motivated more by a desire to match mortarboards with "Dead Poets Society" and "Good Will Hunting" than by its own story. It's a movie of highly telegraphed archetypes slogging their way through clichés (the off-limits girls' school is just across the lake) and only-in-the-movies moments, like the climactic scholarly trivia contest in which the three smartest boys in school don togas and answer questions on stage about the minutiae of Roman history.
These settings, these characters and this narrative arc -- about a contentious teacher-student relationship -- are so familiar that while the movie is not inept or boring, it never feels real enough to inspire much more than a shrug in response.
