Absolutely lovely, very funny film
14 September 2016 | by (Sydney) – See all my reviews

Bridget Jones's Baby was consistently funny and also moving from start to finish. The audience at the showing I attended were laughing throughout.

The plot is well known (from the title and movie poster if nothing else!) but essentially Bridget Jones has split from Mark Darcy some years ago. She's been single for a while and has a one-night stand with a very handsome American (Patrick Dempsey) who turns out to be a billionaire internet entrepreneur. A few days later she gets drunk and hooks up with Marc Darcy after a christening. A few weeks later she takes a pregnancy test, and then has no idea who the baby's father is. She declines an amniocentesis so spends the entire pregnancy with the two potential fathers fighting over both her and the baby.

It's a very strong cast, Emma Thompson in particular is a wonderful addition as Bridget's obstetrician, as is Sarah Solemani who plays Bridget's friend and colleague, the TV presenter Miranda. The scenes at the TV station are very amusing.

You know you're in for a 100% happy ending with a film like this, so you can really sit back and enjoy the ride. There's only one way the plot could really end, but it does very well to keep you guessing nonetheless.

I have no idea why this movie only (as of writing this) only has an average review of 6.2. I can only imagine that the kinds of people who like to sneer at anything "feel good" or romantic simply spend their time trashing such films.

To sum up: it's a very entertaining and enjoyable film. It would probably be best to see the first Bridget Jones film first (you could easily skip the second) or at least have read the book, but even if this is your first "Bridget Experience", you'll have a good time watching it.
