This story picks up four weeks after the first movie, and already Bridget Jones (Renée Zellweger) is becoming uncomfortable in her relationship with Mark Darcy (Colin Firth). Apart from discovering that he's a conservative voter, she has to deal with a new boss, strange contractor, and the worst vacation of her life.Written by
During filming in Thailand, the cast stayed on Nai Yang Beach, close to the airport in Phuket. They often drank at the little shack bars down on the beach, especially "Mama Mia's". In 2004, all of those bars and restaurants were destroyed in the tsunami. The pianist at the J.W. Marriott in Phuket, Stuart Hopkins, who was also a regular at the bar made extensive attempts to contact the cast. In June 2005, a large package arrived for his attention. It was from Renée Zellweger containing many things such as t-shirts, caps, and a big movie poster signed by her and other cast members. Over the years, the bars on the beach were re-built, and the poster still hangs proudly in Mama Mia's bar as of August 2009. See more »

[Bridget gets out of bed covered in a sheet and begins to fumble around]
What on Earth are you doing?
Why're you dancing around in that tent business?
Because I don't want you to see any of my wobbly bits.
Well now that's a bit pointless, isn't it? As I happen to have a very high regard for your wobbly bits. In all circumstances.
[Bridget's head emerges from the sheet]
Absolutely. I think it's high time we had another look.

Having seen the first version, I was looking forward to a good laugh. However this movie really failed to live up to it. Actually perhaps the movie cannot be blamed for it since the storyline itself is quite ridiculous, There was no reason for the Darcy- Bridget split in the first place. Nor the absurd antics with Hugh Grant (the prostitute was in pretty poor taste). The mid-life crisis which is so refreshing in the first movie sounds boring and repetitive.
Renee Zelwegger, looks haggard and unattractive. Also she seems to be overly neurotic - a trait that begins to grate on the nerves. Darcy is passable. Only Hugh Grant shines - he plays the role of the scoundrel with aplomb.
The only high point of the movie is the reprise of the Firth-Grant fisticuff. It is as ludicrous as the first - perhaps even better.
