Bridget Jones’s Baby Movie Review
Bridget Jones’s saga continues with the newest film, Bridget Jone’s Baby, that opens in theaters everywhere today.It has been 12 years since Bridget Jones: Edge of Reason premiered and Renée Zellweger is back our the world’s favorite single, Bridget Jones. The character of Bridget Jones was created by Helen Fielding and the movies are based on her novels.
This new film directed by Sharon Maguire (Bridget Jones’s Diary), finds Bridget unexpectedly expecting. This much-anticipated third installment of the Bridget Jones franchise stars Renée Zellweger, Colin Firth, Patrick Dempsey, Jim Broadbent, Gemma Jones, and Emma Thompson. Tim Bevan and Eric Fellner of Working Title Films produce alongside Debra Hayward.
After breaking up with Mark Darcy (Firth), Bridget Jones’s (Zellweger) “happily ever after” hasn’t quite gone according to plan. Fortysomething and single again, she decides to focus on her job as top news producer and surround herself with old friends and new. For once, Bridget has everything completely under control. What could possibly go wrong?
Then her love life takes a turn and Bridget meets a dashing American named Jack (Dempsey), the suitor who is everything Mr. Darcy is not. In an unlikely twist she finds herself pregnant, but with one hitch…she can only be fifty percent sure of the identity of her baby’s father.
Bridget Jones’s Baby delivers the laughs as the third installment of the Bridget Jones Series. This British Rom-Com was a long time coming and Bridget returns with her usual neurotic charm. The movie is fun of hilarious moments that will make you wonder why they waited so long to bring us this film. You will laugh so hard that you will cry as you watch Bridget fall prey to the usual hilarious pitfalls that end up in her way.
If you have had a child, you will have flashbacks to your pregnancy and be thankful that you were not in Bridget’s shoes (unless you were.) The writers did a wonderful job at creating hilarious scenes and showcasing labor & delivery as a series of mishaps that result in a struggle with a revolving door.
You will be debating between #TeamDarcy or #TeamJack. However, the only way to discover whose team Bridget is on is to see the movie this Friday when it hits theaters. We are #TeamJack but we may be a little biased because we are huge Patrick Dempsey fans.
Bridget Jones’s Baby is rated R for for language (frequent use of the F word) , sex references and some nudity.
