Bridget Jones (Renée Zellweger) is an average woman struggling against her age, her weight, her job, her lack of a man, and her many imperfections. As a New Year's Resolution, Bridget decides to take control of her life, starting by keeping a diary in which she will always tell the complete truth. The fireworks begin when her charming though disreputable boss takes an interest in the quirky Miss Jones. Thrown into the mix are Bridget's band of slightly eccentric friends and a rather disagreeable acquaintance into whom Bridget cannot seem to stop running or help finding quietly attractive.Written by

We see Bridget struggling to pull on her granny knickers with nothing else on her lower behalf, but a few scenes later, Daniel pulls up her skirt to reveal them over her tights/pantyhose See more »
That's not a sand piper, Bridget, it's a snowy plover.
Sand pipers, plovers, albatrosses! Do I look like a bloody entomologist?

After "The End" appears, it's crossed out and "The Beginning" added. See more »
The postscript footage that plays during the first half of the end credits is completely different in the UK and the US. As Robbie Williams sings "Have You Met Miss Jones?", the UK version has the credits run on black on the right half of the screen, while the left half shows comic interviews with various characters from the film about the new relationship between Bridget and Mark, as well as production stills from the film. In the US version, this is entirely replaced with a home movie of Mark Darcy's 8th birthday party, with the young Bridget running naked through his pool, as described earlier in the film. Each country's DVD includes the other country's ending as a deleted scene. See more »
Horror fan watched this chick flick and enjoyed it
I can remember when this came out and a girl that I was dating at the time suggested I watch it. Me?? A die-hard horror geek!! Nah!! Fast forward 18 years and last night me and my girlfriend sat down together and watched it. And it was really good. Granted, I wouldn't have chosen to watch this by myself, but if you're looking for a charming, date movie then look no further.
Predictable and basic but it does have a nice plot none the less, and many times we were laughing out loud. Very well acted and produced. I would, however, like to point out that very few Brits speak posh like they do here, and that snow is quite rare in England at Xmas (unless you're on top of a mountain!)
Looking forward to seeing the sequel
