Trivia

The producers originally asked Bridget Jones' Diary (2001) director Sharon Maguire to return for this movie, but she told them that she had no interest whatsoever in directing it. Renée Zellweger's personal choice for director was Nigel Cole, but the producers agreed that a woman should direct, and hired Beeban Kidron instead. Maguire returned as director for the second sequel, Bridget Jones' Baby (2016), though. See more »

Quotes

Bridget Jones: Daniel Cleaver is a deceitful, sexist, disgusting specimen of humanity that I wouldn't share a lift with, let alone a job.
Daniel Cleaver: [swings around on his chair, coming into Bridget's view] Oh, come on Jones there must have been something you liked about me.
Bridget Jones: You have a nice car. And - quite nice manners, outside the bedroom. But that's about it. And by the way, I know exactly where Germany is. The question is, do you know the location of your arsehole?

Daniel Cleaver: [to other colleagues] As a matter of fact I do...

Renée Zellweger Makes the Film Be Worth
25 January 2006 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

In London, the clumsy, fat and insecure Bridget Jones (Renée Zellweger) is in love with the human rights lawyer Mark Darcy (Colin Firth), but they break their commitment due to her jealousy. Bridget travels to Thailand with Daniel Cleaver (Hugh Grant) to shoot a show, and she gets involved in a serious international incident, and is saved by Mark.

The sequel of "Bridget Jones's Diary" is very irregular and not so good as the original movie. There are many funny moments, but also weak parts in the plot, and Colin Firth shows no chemistry with Renée Zellweger. However, this excellent actress makes the movie a worthwhile entertainment with her charismatic and lovely performance. Further, the pop soundtrack with many hits is great. If the viewer watches this movie with open heart and without expectations and comparisons with "Bridget Jones's Diary", I believe he or she may like it as I did. My vote is seven.

Title (Brazil: "Bridget Jones No Limited a Razão" ("Bridget Jones In the Edge of the Reason")
