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!
Sometimes I cannot help but feel sympathetic for the romantic comedy genre, constantly bombarded with products that depend on formula and ambitious casting to appeal to the mass market. Unlike the recent comic-book and young adult phenomenon, this is a genre that would never lose its appeal as it would forever be universal in its emotions and ideas; however, this is an area of cinema that finds too much precision in its target audience, hoping to aim to a singular brand of gender or attitude, which ironically narrows its appeal.
The greatest of romantic comedies have managed to remain standing in the test of time through its innovating techniques (Annie Hall), empathetic, challenging and engaging chemistry between its leads (When…
I'm slightly embarrassed to admit how much I love this film, and how much it is a running joke in my life. The stuff about F.R. Leavis is legendary, and me and my friends at uni spent our whole revision for our literary studies in first year quoting the film. "Ugh, he's just a knobby knobhead with no knob". Sally Phillips and James Callis steal the show.
"Do you know... where the toilets are?"
me: *watches renée zellweger running after colin firth in the snow wearing only underwear and a cardigan*
me: bitch me too
if i actually logged this movie every time i saw it you'd all hate me
The movie based on the novel by Helen Fielding is a bit of a misnomer. Despite, a few moments of observations told with the delicate staccatos of Renee Zellweger's inner monologue, the diary doesn't really fit into the story all that much. What the film should have been called is Pride and Prejudice 2000. Not to say that a loose adaptation of a classic is a bad idea it's just you don't have to be so obvious about it.
Our charming protagonist Bridget (Zellweger) is a bit of a hot mess. In the words of potential love interest Mark Darcy (Firth), "she smokes like a chimney, drinks like a fish and dresses like her mother." Bridget decides to mend her…
I already feel like an idiot most of the time anyway - with or without the fireman's pole.
This is one of my favourite go-to comfort movies and I love it too much to say anything remotely constructive about it.
It still makes me laugh, all these years later, and what more could I want?
(Trying to add a 'review' for each I watch for this challenge and forgot to do this the other day...or week, rather).
SO CRINGEY AAA
Ανάλαφρη κομεντί τύπου Sex and the City, ευχάριστη, χωρίς τίποτα σπουδαίο να σου πει. Πολύ καλή η ερμηνεία της Zellweger.
the last scene is iconic
Colin Firth and Hugh Grant fighting in the snow.
