Trivia

(at around 1h 40 mins) Dr. Rawlings (Dame Emma Thompson) mentions that her ex-husband once said that watching her give birth was "like watching his favorite pub burn down." This line actually came from Robbie Williams during an interview on The Graham Norton Show (2007). Thompson was also being interviewed, and conversed with Williams on the subject - asking if he had "rebuilt her", then added it was probably best "to live with the ruins for now." See more »

Goofs

(at around 1h 16 mins) When Mark is checking his compatibility with Bridget (vs. Jack Qwant's) on The Qwantify dating website he types in Jack's name as "Quant" not "Qwant". See more »

Quotes

Dr. Rawlings: I'm not sure how much there is to gain from you two being at the coalface if I'm honest. My ex-husband said it was like watching his favorite pub burn down.

Delightful cast
16 September 2016 | by n-kefalaSee all my reviews

Renée Zellweger and a delightful cast, especially Emma Thompson, add some weight to the light simplistic plot of this movie. Dempsey and Firth contrast beautifully, and each has a different kind of chemistry with Zellweger. It's funny and engaging and the lead character, it feels current because they've allowed it to grow. But there isn't much that feels fresh in movie. The one exception is Emma Thompson. In spite of the mess, Zellweger remains winsome and charming as Bridget, enough so that one wishes the movie had done better by her. In short, Bridget Jones's Baby is not a great Bridget Jones movie, but it is a Bridget Jones movie, and maybe that's all people need.
