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.
On her 43rd birthday, Bridget Jones is awoken by her mother who reminds her that her time to have children is running out. She goes to attend the funeral of Daniel Cleaver, who is presumed dead after a plane crash. While there, she sees her ex, Mark Darcy (Colin Firth) and his new wife. They bump into one another somewhat awkwardly and then go their separate ways..
According to Colin Firth, his new rival, Patrick Dempsey's Jack Qwant, is more intimidating than his former opponent, Hugh Grant's Daniel Cleaver; "Mark didn't think Daniel was better than him. This guy Jack seems to be more of the charming good guy, and in some ways that's scarier." See more »
When Jack takes over carrying Bridget to the hospital, he leaves his motorcycle helmet on his bike. He then carries her together with Mark and does not have his helmet when they enter the hospital. Later, when he is waiting in the hospital, his helmet has magically joined him there. See more »
What if it's not yours?
What if the baby turns out to be Mark's?
Well, I mean, it would certainly change things.

First of all, this is not supposed to be a heavy, meaningful, deep film. People are judging it on what it is not supposed to be. It is light, funny, romantic and the name Darcy hints on what it is more about. It is about love and finally getting with the person you are meant to be with. It is a modern day Jane Austin story of love and tanglements. The actors are lovely and their characters are credible and sweet. My usual genre is crime so for me to enjoy something as light as this it has to be good. If you like these actors and feel like something romantic and light then you will enjoy this film. If you want to judge it by a criteria that it is not pretending to be then you will be disappointed. It entertains as a romance and comedy. Nothing heavy or earth shattering but it is a good movie.
