Trivia

In the book, Bridget Jones is obsessed by the actor Colin Firth from the BBC TV series Pride and Prejudice (1995), and even gets to meet him for an interview. This plot-line is omitted from the film, where Firth actually plays her love interest Mark Darcy. They did, however, film the interview scene with Colin dressed in his street clothes, and Renée Zellweger in character. The scene is included in the DVD extras. See more »

Lacking in every respect: story, dialog, acting, humor
5 March 2006 | by (Munich, Germany) – See all my reviews

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.
