Did You Know?


Controversially, this is the first time Renée Zellweger hasn't gained weight in order to portray Bridget Jones. Several on-line outlets claimed that Zellweger betrayed her iconic character, as the honest body image is considered a part of the character's appeal. However, director Sharon Maguire defended the decision to keep Jones' waist down; "We all really loved the notion that Bridget had finally reached her ideal weight - somewhere between a U.K. size ten or twelve - but still hadn't solved any of her issues about love and loneliness."

(at around 17 mins) Bridget falls in the mud with her arms under her chest, but in the following shot they're extended. Her suitcase and bag keep changing positions between shots too. See more »


Dr. Rawlings: I do recommend that you have the anmiocentesis because there are always more risks with a geriatric mother.
Bridget: Geriatric? That's outrageous.
Dr. Rawlings: Indeed.
Bridget: Unless you can sign on for your child support and pension at the same time.

Underestimating Bridget
29 November 2016 | by jodestar82See all my reviews

Even though i was a big fan of the original when it was released (as an impressionable teenager it was refreshing to not see another typical cliché female lead in a RomCom ); I must admit i rolled my eyes and the first thought to come to mind when reading about the release of a sequel was "LAME". BUT, ill happily be the first to admit how wrong i was.

Not only have i not been interested in any Romantic Movies (comedy and drama alike) for almost a decade (always the same old story), but i certainly didn't think BRIDGET JONES BABY was going to be all the LOL either. THANK GOODNESS FOR BOREDOM!

WITHOUT MENTIONING ANY QUOTES OR SPECIFIC SCENES, i definitely had dozens of laugh out loud moments, and 75% of the way through, i was laughing so hard, my stomach hurt and tears were streaming.

Neighbours of mine are still asking me what was so funny last Sunday (5 days ago) afternoon as they could here me laughing a few doors away, i simply let them borrow my Bridget Jones Baby and said find out for yourself.

Laughter All Round.

Well Done Bridget, A Fitting End.
