Bridget Jones's The Edge of Reason - bit of a letdown!,
By A Customer
This review is from: Bridget Jones 2: The Edge of Reason [DVD]  (DVD)
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.
