This marks the third time Patrick Dempsey makes his debut in the third movie of a franchise. The first being Scream 3 (2000) and Transformers: Dark of the Moon (2011). See more »


A newspaper seen on a bench a year after Bridget gives birth states that a certain character is found alive one year after a plane crash. The funeral for the victim of the plane crash happened shortly before Bridget got pregnant, so the time span between the plane crash and the person's rescue should have been at least 21 months (and probably a few months more, allowing for time to search for and presume the character dead before the funeral).

The best way to make the film with this storyline.
7 December 2016 | by See all my reviews

I was a teenager when the first Bridget Jones's Diary movie came out. You get connected to the movies you've seen and the books you have read as a kid/teenager in a different way. I was seriously angry at Helen Fielding over what she did in the last book. So much that I was naming her as my new arch nemesis. Not just because I loved the characters but also because I thought it was ridiculous to bring such drama to a genre that is supposed to be uplifting. So first let me say I'm grateful they went with a different story in the movie than the one in the book.

I would still prefer a little different story to be honest. While I have no problem with seeing some problems in the relationship of Mark and Bridget for the comedic effect, I got a bit annoyed a new guy was in the game *about a baby*. Though this is really me pushing it. Obviously my or your opinions about what kind of a story could have been done will never totally become true.

I'm not 100% satisfied by the movie as a Bridget Jones fan, however to my surprise I was very close to it. The directing was really great. The movie was very funny with quite a few laugh out loud moments. Colin Firth was delightfully charming as Mark Darcy as always. Before I saw the movie I thought I was going to very much dislike Jack but Patrick Dempsey has done an incredible job at portraying him; you like Jack just enough to not get utterly irritated by him unintentionally standing in between our beloved couple Bridget and Mark, or would get devastated if the baby was his (might be, might be not his), but not like him so much that you'd cheer for him and get annoyed by Mark. One of the biggest praises all three movies deserve is the casting. From the lead stars of the movie to every side character, the casting is superb. I loved what they did with Daniel (Hugh Grant), and seeing one of my favorite actresses, Emma Thompson, in the movie was a wonderful surprise.

As for Bridget, Renee Zellweger once again nails it. I loved seeing the progress Bridget made while still being her funny, crazy, unique self. When I was a teenager and saw the first movie, I remember thinking "I wish I were friends with Bridget," now at 31 years old, I still feel the same. I know Hollywood award shows rarely go with comedy movies but I hope both Renee Zellweger and Colin Firth receive the nominations they deserve. And I surely do hope there will be another movie.

The series is still one of the absolute best comedy movies. And Helen Fielding is no longer my arch nemesis. For now. Don't touch Mark, Helen! :-)
