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 :)
Wonderfully british. Perfectly sums everything up. Who wouldn't want to see Coin Firth fighting Hugh Grant. The Working Title/Richard Curtis wonder mix does it again.
What is there to say about this movie? It's a nice little rom-com romp. Music is annoying, but that's pretty par for the course when it comes to movies like this. I'd watch it again if I wanted to put something on and just relax.
COME THE FUCK ON BRIDGET
Rewatched this yesterday and glad I did because this time around I really liked the movie.
No one can make me feel bad about loving this movie to bits.
Film 6 of Personal Challenge 4 - The Brit Clique
This is easily one of the better rom coms. The characters are all wonderfully drawn, equally funny, cool and sad. The story, whilst based very loosely on Pride and Prejudice, is admittedly exaggerated but there is a lot of realism in the characters' motivations.
I know some women find Bridget a poor example of a woman, but I can really relate to her and as such find her really endearing.
There are plenty of laughs and a great supporting cast. Hugh Grant is wonderful as the devilish Daniel Cleaver and Colin Firth really was perfect casting - particularly as in the books Colin Firth is Bridget's big celebrity crush.
Been in a weird mood for familiar romantic comedies lately. I loved this one when I was younger and it mostly holds up, even though I wanted to punch the soundtrack in the face 99% of the time. It's a joy to see Hugh Grant playing so devilishly against type.
Wow I just watched two Hugh Grant movies in a row. Pretty good though.
So funny! :) Really liked it. Never getting used of English humour ^^
