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."

Quotes

Mark: It wasn't fate, it was condoms.
Jack: What do you mean?
Mark: Those ridiculous dolphin-friendly things from the bottom of Bridget's bag.
Jack: I'm sorry, I have no idea what you're talking about. When Bridget and I got it on, I was... I was not dressed for the occasion.

I've never been so happy to see the credits on a Bridget Jones' film!
21 January 2017 | by See all my reviews

I may have over exaggerated haha, but seriously though when I saw the credits I was relieved it was over! I liked how the cast from the original films were still there like her parents, her friends, Mark and the reference to Daniel. But I just feel with the absence of Hugh Grant, it just didn't work. Her new friend at the news station, already forgot her name, annoyed me during the music festival scenes because it was just over-acting. When Ed Sheeran was on screen I just found both her's and Bridget's reactions unbelievable. I also wasn't a big fan of the soundtrack, it was too clubby, modern. I mean, I myself am a teenager but I'm used to Bridget Jones with the big power ballads not clubby music that just doesn't express any emotion or even suit the scene.

In addition, i did find it hard to warm to Bridget for the first 30 minutes. It's just Renee looks so different with all her plastic surgery, still beautiful but she just didn't resemble the Bridget we've come to love. So it was difficult to view her as the character we know for a while.

However, apart from all of this I think it was an uplifting film! I didn't feel like it was depressing or anything, and there were funny moments! It was a feel-good one and although the situation with the pregnancy was a bit odd and in some cases, relatable to some people, they still made it lighthearted which was lovely to see! And it was great to see how happy Bridget was when, although struggling with relationships over the films, she was finally in a position where she wouldn't be alone and that she will have a child to love for the rest of her life.
