Reviews

It would be difficult to top the phenomenal success of BRIDGET JONES' DIARY, but the sequel certainly pulls it off. The incomparable Renee Zellweger (JERRY MACGUIRE, COLD MOUNTAIN) once again breathes hilarious life into the flawed heroine who sent her career soaring. This instalment of Bridget's journal finds her dealing with the growing pains of a new relationship with Mark Darcy, her crush from the first film (stilted but passionate Colin Firth). Though wildly in love with him, Bridget, a TV producer, worries off and on that Mark and his stuffy attorney crowd may not be quite her cup of tea. When she attends an important law function as Mark's date, she manages to embarrass herself and offend his snobby colleagues. To top it off, Mark's gorgeous and willowy co-worker Rebecca (Jacinda Barrett) seems to have a knack for showing up at just the wrong time. When Bridget finally asks Mark outright if he's having an affair with the leggy Rebecca, he refuses to answer. Bridget jets off in a huff, and it appears the relationship is officially on the rocks. To further complicate matters, her cute and caddish former love Daniel Cleaver (Hugh Grant) asks her to join him on-location in Thailand for a TV shoot--another chance at romance for Bridget Jones. Zellweger makes the film completely her own, and provides some quintessential 'Bridget' moments--Bridget trying to walk up a flight of stairs in heels, Bridget careening down a mountain on skis, or Bridget tripping on magic mushrooms on a Thai beach. Brilliantly rehashing this unforgettable character, the sequel is a pleasure to watch that easily matches the original.

3.0 out of 5 stars "And nothing in the world can spoil it" 6 Jun 2005
Format:DVD
Last time we saw her, Bridget Jones (Zellweger) was in love with Mark Darcy (Firth) and they were staying together for the movie's happy ending. Now, we find them again only a few weeks later, exactly one year after they first met in the buffet organized by Bridget's mother. And guess what, they are there again; another year, another buffet, another diary. This is how we jump into the sequel, and as usually happens, it is not as good as the original; but it still provides us with a fun time.
Bridget is working in "Sit Up Britain" and is continuously finding herself in ridiculous situations, which do not portray her in a very flattering light, but boosts rating. As happened in the previous movie, we get to listen to her comments on the events that she is going through; comments that are usually pretty funny, but sometimes turn out to be a bit corny.
You probably are asking yourself by now, what about Daniel (Grant)? Well, he has a TV show in the same network as Bridget, and even though she does not even want to hear about him anymore, their paths cross when they have to work together on one of the shows. And this happens right when she is thinking about marriage with Mark, but the encounter situation things a bit. And the fact that Mark is working with a very attractive woman does not help in the least.
The movie keeps the main characteristics of the winning formula used for the first one, and yes...you will get to see another fight between Daniel and Mark, so do not worry. But some things are funnier the first time around, and that is true in this case too. The creators did add a little variety though, with a little travel that allows for a change of settings, but it is still not enough to compensate for the repeated humor.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing Sequel 23 Feb 2006
Format:DVD
Bridget is back... and life and love are not as perfect as they could be...
I loved the film Bridget Jones's Diary. It was funny and romantic and the characters, especially Bridget and Mark, were so loveable. I bought the book after watching the film and actually liked the film better, which is a rare thing.
Of course, I had to buy the second book, Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason and I adored it. Especially the interview, it really had me laughing out loud.
Because of the first film, I had high expectations of the sequel... but ended up rather disappointed. It hardly follows the storyline I so enjoyed and it is not very funny.
This would be alright if the storyline would have been difficult to turn into a movie but really, apart from the interview, I can't see any reason for the drastic changes they made. Perhaps they had to give Hugh Grant a bigger part in the movie (his character only has a small role in the book).
Don't get me wrong - the film is not awful. It's simply okay. Bridget is still her loveable self and Mark is still charming, she still gets herself into all sorts of situations. Just, it could have been so much more...

4.0 out of 5 stars Bridget Jones 2 The Edge of Reason 3 Feb 2005
By Nuria
Format:DVD
Whilst in general sequels never live up to one's expectations, a massive crush on one of the leading men and a hunger to see what happens next, even if have read the book, will have you desperately rushing to see this...which I did in SPANISH!!! (I live in the Canary Islands!) I am totally biased of course when it comes to this film(s)... because face it ladies (in my age group) we've all been there done that and no doubt will continue to do so til we meet our own Mr. Darcy! One of the highlights for me was the fight scene in the movie..between Mr. Darcy & Cleaver (not saying anymore), which made me laugh so much, I nearly got thrown out of the movie theatre!!
So in conclusion...Bridget Jone's of the world and ladies lusting for more of Mr Darcy's flesh, literally...WATCH THIS!

I love this film and i loved the first one too. Has gotten some pretty bad reviews, im currently watching it at the moment after not seeing it for over 5 years. But the scene i mostly remember and enjoy is when she goes to prison in thailand. That scene always makes me laugh, and so does the rest of the film.

Heard there's meant to be a third one, hopefully they keep the good funny stuff like they have in the first and second movie. Movies don't normally make me laugh but this certainly has :).

I am a huge fan of both Colin Firth and Hugh Grant and I just loved the first Bridget Jones's Diary movie and have watched it numerous times and so I couldn't wait to watch the sequel. I feel though that this was a bit of a letdown as the humour is often very contrived / forced and so you find yourself thinking that you should be laughing but you realise you actually aren't. I have to say after loving the character of Bridget in the first film, she seemed a bit annoying in this and after a while you get a bit sick of her! I have to say Colin Firth was on top form and was just as fantastic in this film as in the first one but the other characters I feel became less believable. There are some really funny moments still and if you liked the first one you will most likely like this one but you might be left feeling as if the sequel doesn't quite live up to your ideas about what it should have been like.
