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

When leaving for work on the second morning, Bridget is wearing the same spotty blouse she had on the day before. When she gets to the office she is wearing a pink jumper. See more »
New York. the Big, Juicy Apple. The city that never sleeps with the same person two nights running. My favorite place in America, where Sex And The City isn't just a programme, it's a promise.

Were we supposed to care about any of these characters? Mark Darcy and Bridget were terrible together. They couldn't go even one scene without squabbling and picking at each other. How could the audience believe there could be anything enduring between them? Poor Renee! Gaining 30 pounds just to star in what was one of the most tedious movies I've ever seen. Perhaps the movie could have used the same director and screenwriter that the first one had. I really enjoyed the first BJ movie and was sorely disappointed by the second. I LOVE all the actors in this film, but I found myself embarrassed for them. The first movie was smart, witty, and fresh (screenwriting, please!) This predictable mess imploded under its own weight of countless, irritating apologies and shrill dialogue.
