Bridget Jones’s Baby – A Review

I went to the cinema again.Two times in two months, a bit of a record for me!

It was Bridget Jones’s Baby this time. We were having a girlie night with a film and dinner for a dear friend of mine, and what a perfect film to watch! Not least because my friend is turning 43, and so was Bridget in the film, but because it was ‘laugh out loud’ funny, pretty much all the way through!


Renee Zellweger is back as the hapless Bridget Jones, unlucky in love, in her forties, with a bleak outlook on her future.

I guess it is most women’s nightmare to be pregnant, and not know who the father is, but for poor Bridget, her two ‘encounters’ came at close intervals to each other, after a five-year sexual hiatus. The falling pregnant after thinking her ovaries had dried up was a most pleasant surprise, but the not knowing who daddy was… STRESS!

And it didn’t help that both candidates had a LOT going for them!

One is her long time love of her life, an older, but still just as serious, Mark Darcy (played by Colin Frith) who is overjoyed, in a subdued way, at the thought of being the father to Bridget’s child, and the other, a supposed one night stand that ends up being a very handsome, eligible billionaire, Jack Quant (a rather yummy Patrick Dempsey!) who really wants to be a daddy!

Much hilarity ensues in the build up to the falling pregnant, and the duration of the pregnancy, where both prospective fathers try to be supportive, but secretly hate each other’s guts as they really want to be theΒ father!



Antenatal classes with two dads… always going to be funny!

Then there is the macho locking of horns right up until the delivery where they find out who really is the daddy!



Actually a cringeworthy, but belly achingly funny scene when they need to get Bridget to the hospital when her labour starts, and need to pick her up! Oh, how we laughed!!

Of course, I will not disclose who it is, but if you have read the books then you already know!


Throw in a ludicrously young, trendy new boss for Bridget, a mother who is on a political campaign trail, winning over the blue-rinse brigade, and the hilarious Italian restaurant owner and you have a gigglefest on your hands!

Looking around the theatre, there were groups of women, young and old, and couples, from all age ranges, so it is a film that would be enjoyed by most people! But not kids… with the “f*ckity f*uck” swearing, and a little horizontal tango-ing going on, it is a 15 rated movie!

Again, a seriously funny film, I may have actually enjoyed it more than Bad Moms, and that was a good film! We both drank too much Diet Coke, but had to cross our legs as we didn’t want to miss a moment of the movie!


And on the subject of diet drinks, I didn’t eat popcorn at the movies! Saved my Slimming WorldΒ syns for the KFC Rice Box (10.5 syns), and got home and had a movie snack (3 syns) there instead for far fewer calories!




Go watch it if you can, you won’t regret it!
