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
During the filming in Thailand, the cast stayed on Nai Yang Beach, close to the airport in Phuket. They often drank at the little shack bars down on the beach, especially 'Mama Mia's'. In 2004, all of those bars and restaurants were destroyed in the Tsunami. The pianist at the JW Marriott in Phuket, Stuart Hopkins, who was also a regular at the bar made extensive attempts to contact the cast. In June 2005, a large package arrived for his attention. It was from Renée Zellweger containing many things such as T-shirts, caps, and a big movie poster signed by herself and other cast members. Over the years the bars on the beach were re-built, and the poster still hangs proudly in Mama Mia's bar as of August 2009. See more »

Bridget Jones returns in a second and incredibly pointless installment that sees her still struggling with her boring love life.
I hated this film, it had no redeeming qualities whatsoever, just a mindless, contrived and extremely painful film to watch. Colin Firth's character was terrible, as was Bridget Jones, with Renee Zelwegger putting on a lame British accent. The first film was OK, but this is just trying to make a bit of money off the first.
The jokes are poor and of incredibly bad taste, especially Hugh Grants one. Many females in the audience seemed to find this film hysterical, but I believe it was pure nonsense, a dive of a movie that should never have seen the light of day.
