A washed up singer is given a couple days to compose a chart-topping hit for an aspiring teen sensation. Though he's never written a decent lyric in his life, he sparks with an offbeat younger woman with a flair for words.
The story picks up four weeks after the first film, and already Bridget Jones is becoming uncomfortable in her relationship with Mark Darcy. Apart from discovering that he's a conservative voter, she has to deal with a new boss, strange contractor, and the worst vacation of her life. Written by
All of the characters who appeared in the first Bridget Jones movie Bridget Jones's Diary (2001) and who reappeared in this one were played by the same actor or actress with the exception of Mrs. Darcy who was played by Shirley Dixon replacing the late Charmian May who sadly passed away after the release of the first movie and before the making of the second movie commenced.

In the sequence at the end where Bridget takes a black cab to go to the law chambers (and stops on the way to change her outside), two different cars are used, one with an H-reg numberplate and one with an N-reg numberplate. See more »
Ah Daniel! Your Madrid piece was outstanding. Full of insights; really original.

Lacking in every respect: story, dialog, acting, humor
This is one of the worst movies I have ever seen. It is boring to death, the plot is uninteresting (if this can be even called a plot), and it tries to make up for its really bad dialog by putting as many references to having sex and f/s-words into each and every sentence. An additional problem is that there is no person in this film the viewer can develop sympathy for: Miss Jones is depicted as just too dumb to really feel compassion for, and Mr. Darcy is a block of ice. So the viewer is simply left alone with some story of two people he doesn't care a pence for. I thought this was being advertised as a somewhat funny movie - but honestly, David Letterman's horrible hosting of the Oscars was hilarious compared to this "movie". Don't see it - it's a waste of time and money.
