One event which made me smile was when Bridget is being quizzed for a post as Commentator on some whacky TV show. It concerns some celebrity English actor who had been arrested for having oral sex with a prostitute in a car parked up somewhere in Hollywood Hills; "Why?" said her interviewer, "Why, three months later, is he still with his equally famous English girlfriend. How did he get away with it?" "Any suggestions Bridget?"
Bridget hesitated and said "Perhaps someone swallowed the evidence?". "Brilliant" said the interviewer and laughed out loud.
I myself never saw the Film but I do remember the lead actress being interviewed by Parkinson, who confronted the audience with a clip from the film in which Bridget is shown in bed with her boyfriend when the phone rings. "Oh! its you Mum". The Film differs somewhat from the Book but the script was also written by the Helen Fielding.
The Book is a "Must Read" and the Film is a "Must Watch".
Fielding manages to satirise and amuse whilst still giving us a main character who is warm, funny, engaging, and amusingly inept without being tiresome. No cringy Bella Swann "I'm so clumsy, isn't it charming?" guff going on here! Bridget is someone we all either know or have been at some point; we can cringe with her parental embarrassment, sympathise with her hangovers, and hope with her for a relationship and not being eaten by an Alsatian.
Still one of the funniest, most enjoyable, and (deservedly) best known chick-lit heroines, Bridget is a welcome addition to my Kindle.
The film adaptation of the book has stayed very close to the story in the book, so if you have seen the film (as I have), you will already know how the story goes; despite this, I still really enjoyed reading it. Bridget Jones's Diary is funny and heart-warming and the title character's observations of day-to-day life are very close-to-the-mark, so much so that I had to smile at the number of times her diary entries reflected my own opinions and experiences. Bridget is very down to earth and her worries and insecurities are an echo of those experienced by women of all ages.
