Bridget Jones's Diary
Health Warning: Adopting Bridget's lifestyle could seriously damage your health.
Bridget Jones’s Diary is a romantic love story comedy from the best selling novel of the same name by Helen Fielding. A chaotic Jones meets a snobbish lawer named Marc and soon he enters into her world of imperfections.
I have never confessed, nor will I ever confess in public that I adore and love this film unconditionally.
Hold on a sec...ah crap!
I absolutely adore this movie. Just as hilarious with every single watch. I'm not the biggest fan of Renee Zellweger, but I can't imagine any one else in this role - she is simply delightful.
Colin Firth and Hugh Grant are also perfect as the duelling would-be boyfriends.
All By Myself, Titspervert, granny panties, fireman's pole, just as you are, the most intense street fight to It's Raining Men in history, blue soup, and running through London in knickers and a sweater.
Nothing but love for Bridget Jones.
"But the thing is, um, what I'm trying to say, very inarticulately, is that, um, in fact, perhaps despite appearances, I like you, very much. Just as you are."
This is the film where Hugh Grant and Colin Firth have the most pathetically entertaining fight ever, set to Geri Halliwell's cover of It's Raining Men.
Now that's a selling point.
How had I never seen this before?
I first saw this in junior high, so I didn't quite appreciate its humor until now. It was definitely better this time around!
Renee Zellweger is very enjoyable as the lead, delivering a funny and relatable performance!
Minha diva, musa inspiradora para todas as fossas desta vida e das próximas - afinal, 'quem nunca' se sentiu uma quase-jornalista, uma quase-escritora, com uma quase-bem-sucedida vida amorosa. É, sou eu. (Inclusive nos quilos extras que vem e vão)
Uma comédia simples, nada diferente ou incrívelmente inovadora, mas que nunca canso de ver porque é apaixonante. "Someone like you" é uma das minhas músicas preferidas depois deste filme. E foi a primeira vez que me apaixonei pelo Colin Firth, e isso é muito relevante :)
Amo a colin firth que mas puedo decir...
I like you, very much, just the way you are.
This film seems to constantly attempt to be unpredictable and unlike other romantic comedies. As much as it tries this it still doesn't quite manage it. There are a few too many fake-outs and many of the film's stronger ideas get abandoned before they can come to fruition in favour of more cliche ones.
That isn't to say the film is unenjoyable. There are a lot of very funny moments and the high quality cast of British staples adds a lot to the material. I think the biggest problem is that since this film coming out there has been a lot of films that have attempted and succeeded better at what this film attempted to do. I'm sure at the…
Renee Zellwegger is cute and very relatable (to women) in this cute but very predictable movie.
The best romcoms can get. A comedy masterpiece, brilliantly played by Ms Zellweger. A perfect film to watch as the colder weather arrives with the start of autumn (bringing with it Christmas just around the corner!).
A note on the viewing: Viewed in 2K from Universal's UK Blu-ray release. Their HD transfer is first-rate.
The only inspiration I received from Bridget Jones is that I want to be absolutely nothing like her when I'm in my thirties. If I end up as insensible as her at that age I think I'll deserve to die alone eaten by Alsatians.
Um yeah, I liked it the first time when it was the Pride and Prejudice miniseries on the BBC.
Seriously now, Pride and Prejudice is one of the few old English novels I ever got anything out of, and the mini-series was the best of the BBC productions I've ever seen (hmm, what else have i seen? check into that.) And now, we get the modern telling of it with this Helen Fielding book directed by a woman.
Okay this might sound sexist, but I've never liked a movie directed by a woman. There is one exception, and this movie's director could have been a man and had the same exact output. Penelope Speeris (no, that's not the right spelling…
All time favorite movie!
Bridget Jones's Diary is a funny and lighthearted comedy, strengthened by Renée Zellweger's brilliant work in the title role.
