Trivia

Controversially, this is the first time Renée Zellweger hasn't gained weight in order to portray Bridget Jones. Several online outlets claimed that Zellweger betrayed her iconic character, as the honest body image is considered a part of the character's appeal. However, director Sharon Maguire defends the decision to keep Jones' waist down; "We all really loved the notion that Bridget had finally reached her ideal weight - somewhere between a UK size 10 or 12 - but still hadn't solved any of her issues about love and loneliness."

Goofs

The extra 's' in the title in not necessary. The correct grammar and spelling for the title should be: "Bridget Jones' Baby." If there is an 's' before the apostrophe and you are showing possession, the following 's' is not needed. See more »

For the fans, if they'll have it
14 December 2016 | by See all my reviews

Why did I watch this? I can't say I was ever a fan, I never read the books, but I have seen the original film many times. I re-watched it not long ago, and had to admit it had worn out for me, but that's probably my own fault. It's not meant to be seen every holiday season. Still, it has very good timing and it's bittersweet. Bridget Jones' Baby doesn't and isn't. It's dragging and it would make absolutely no sense to anyone not familiar with the first ones. The millennial characters are unfunny and implausible, the writing there is both patronizing and eager to please, like me following my friend's teenage son on Instagram and commenting YOLO. Pussy Riot and cats that look like Hitler... and the next minute jokes about human rights violations... So, I actually watched for the experience of a 40+ pregnant woman, of any glimpses of successfully acted emotions. And for Colin Firth, and possibly Emma Thompson, although I think I'd now like to forget she has screenplay credit in this. But still, what happened? Was everyone an amateur? It was like the characters from earlier films were all doing cameos. Renee Zellweger was playing herself playing her character 12 years later. No, she was standing in for herself in that role. Her voice was often barely audible, like she was really, really tired.
