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..
Renée Zellweger's first released film in six years. Originally, she had filmed two movies prior to this film, but both were pushed back to 2017, which subsequently made this her first big screen appearance after the hiatus. See more »
When Bridget is at the festival right before she falls on the mud, while she walks to pick a flyer a strand of hair falls around her neck, which disappears in the next angle. See more »
We thought it would be really fun to get a photo of us backstage among all these glamorous people. I think that's the guy from Bargain Hunt. It'd be great if you could get him in the shot. Quick, quick, quick!

Bridget Jones (Renée Zellweger) comes to terms with her 43rd birthday and her permanent childless single status. Bridget attends Daniel Cleaver's funeral after his disappearance. Surprisingly, Mark Darcy (Colin Firth) shows up with his wife. Everybody is married with children, even the gays. Bridget is dragged to a music festival by best friend Miranda (Sarah Solemani). She sleeps with Jack Qwant (Patrick Dempsey), the first guy she meets, who turns out to be an internet dating billionaire. Later at a christening, she hooks up with fellow godparent Mark Darcy who claims to be getting a divorce. She has a surprise pregnancy and the father could be either man.
This has plenty of single Bridget Jones fun. I'm glad that Zellweger gave up getting bigger to do a bunch of fat jokes. It's not breaking any new grounds but it is fun for fans. Emma Thompson has fun being the doctor. It's a comedy and I laughed a couple of times.
