Well made third installment
18 September 2016 | by jtindahouseSee all my reviews

Admittedly, 'Bridget Jones' isn't really made for me. It's a chick-flick - I'm a man, it's British humour - I prefer American, it's based around romance - I enjoy action in my movies. Taking all that into consideration, the fact that I didn't mind 'Bridget Jones's Baby' is really a big endorsement for it. Generally I'm a fan of action driving the comedy in films, however the simplicity in 'Bridget Jones' is probably its biggest strength. The characters are meant to be what you come to see and a platform for their interactions is all that is necessary. As far as a platform goes I thought the baby thing worked quite well. It gave everyone a genuine reason to be in interested in 'Bridget' and lead itself to enough humorous situations to be a wise decision.

I won't lie, it took a bit of getting used to the new-look Renee Zellweger. I had to keep reminding myself that this was indeed the same actress from the first two films. It doesn't really detract from her performance, it's simply a distraction. Emma Thompson was the stand-out performer for me. Her dry humour played off perfectly against Zellweger and every scene she was in she stole. If this is where they choose to wrap up the series, I think they'd be making a wise decision. I can't see any more stories worth being told with these characters and 'Bridget Jones's Baby' would be an ideal way to go out on a high.
