Benjamin Barry is an advertising executive and ladies' man who, to win a big campaign, bets that he can make a woman fall in love with him in 10 days. Andie Anderson covers the "How To" beat for "Composure" magazine and is assigned to write an article on "How to Lose a Guy in 10 days." They meet in a bar shortly after the bet is made.

All of the characters who appeared in the first Bridget Jones movie Bridget Jones's Diary (2001) and who reappeared in this one were played by the same actor or actress with the exception of Mrs. Darcy who was played by Shirley Dixon replacing the late Charmian May who sadly passed away after the release of the first movie and before the making of the second movie commenced; and Magda, who was played by Claire Skinner in the first film, and is played by Jessica Hynes in this film.

BRIDGET JONES: THE EDGE OF REASON (2004) ** Renee Zellweger, Colin Firth, Hugh Grant, Jacinda Barrett, Gemma Jones, Jim Broadbent. Zellweger reprises her role as the titular neurotic British journalist in a fairly charmless sequel picking up from her hook-up with the divinely prim Mark Darcy (Firth) and making a shambles of their relationship.
