Editorial Reviews

Renee Zellweger is back as everyone's favorite witty heroine in Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason. Not that Bridget's counting, but it's been six wonderful weeks, four fabulous days, and seven precious hours with one flawless boyfriend, Mark Darcy (Colin Firth). But when mischievous and devilishly charming Daniel Cleaver (Hugh Grant) arrives on the scene claiming to be a reformed man, can Bridget find a way to make true love last forever? It's the "absolutely hilarious" (Jim Ferguson, ABC-TV) romantic comedy that proves there's nothing like love to send you over the edge.

    So many sequels, so little time. Should you spend some of that time with this sequel to the popular and funny Bridget Jones' Diary? If you have a taste for the light and frothy, certainly. If we were discussing the book, The Edge of Reason, I would say "no"--- there are far better books, and better sequels, out there. But this is that rare case where the second book was rushed out to capitalize on the wild popularity of the first, and disappointing----- while this movie, not so rushed, is only casually based on and certainly better than the book.

    Although neither book nor movie quite live up to the first, fans of the first movie will be well entertained by the second. And I, for one, am immensely glad that at least one horribly painful scene in the book is not even hinted at in the movie: Mr. Darcy keeps most of his dignity intact.

    Can you enjoy this movie without seeing the first Diary? Yes, you learn enough of the characters early that this movie can stand on its own. However, I would bet that if you even smile during this one, you will want to rent or buy the first. You'll laugh out loud.

    Especially if you love Colin Firth and Hugh Grant, as I do, this sequel is time well spent. I can't spell out why Colin Firth is so attractive, but there it is: he is. He is a much greater presence in this movie than the first--- after all, he (as "Mark Darcy") and Bridget have a real relationship as the movie opens. Of course they ---uhmm--- "mess" it up ("language, Bridget!") with misunderstandings, jealousies, and very funny mishaps.

    Everything Bridget learned, grew, appreciated and worked towards in the first film is undone by the calculated stupidity and unfunny blunderings committed in this sequel. It seems that the only time Bridget can be a happy, self-confident woman is when she's on the borderline of misery and happiness. Once happy, she struggles to undo everything she might have done right.

    Hugh Grant's character is a sleazy, but fun cad and he plays Daniel allowing us to enjoy him while at the same time showing his appalling self-involvement. However, abandoning Bridget when she's caught at the Thai airport was a stretch and out of character, even for a narcissist. Just because a man's a skirt-chasing, flirtatious louse doesn't mean he needs to be portrayed as an intolerant oaf.

    Also, in the first film, Renee was filmed beautifully. Her skin was glowing and even in her granny panties she looked kittenishly sexy. In this film, the director aims certain shots to make every crease in her skin, every fold of flesh and every little wrinkle stand out and frame Bridget as a silly, flabby fatty which, even with the extra pounds, she is not. Why was it necessary to show her in negative situations in the worst negative light?

    The movie and the character might have resonated had she not been directed and shown in such a ridiculous manner. As it was, it was dreadful.

    After reading the reviews online I was a little hestitant about seeing the movie afterall, it's common sense that the sequel to any good movie never really turns out the way you want it too... but, in this case I was pleasantly surprised. The movie is what fans of Bridget have waited for-

    What happens after happily ever after we all wonder when we see the end to any movie and in this one we get the chance to see a piece of what becomes between the buff Bridget and her "perfect" boyfriend Mark-- who folds his underwear before he goes to sleep. In this reality strikes their relationship as Bridget and Mark deal with snobby/single friends, lesbian kisses, Thai prisons, break-ups, family, weekends spent away together, and work-- also a beautiful young secretary with long legs who happens to work with Mark. Of course, as in any squel there is a comeback by Daniel Cleaver who everywhere Bridget turns manages to see his face as he has just landed himself his own television show and is the same as ever-- and still going after Bridget. Can Bridget and Mark manage to survie??? Well I think we all know the answer to that.

    Colin Firth is more charming in this as Mark Darcy than he was in the first and of course, Renee does a wonderful job as the buff Brit who never seems to get anything right. Hugh Grant is davishly evil and once again you see that wonderful on-screen rivalry between Hugh and Firth.

    This was the film I have been waiting for after seeing the words "the beginning" in Bridget Jone's Diary... and I loved seeing Bridg and Mark together. I found myself swooning after Mark who likes Bridget-- "likes her just the way she is"--wobbly bits included... what girl dosn't want a man like Mark? And Bridget maintains to be the symbol of all woman- slightly overweight and wanting wedding bells to dong.

    This is a movie for fans and a must see for any Colin Firth or Hugh Grant fan. All in all rent this one or do what I'm doing and buy this one!

    Tours of duty in "Chicago" and "Cold Mountain" have moved Renee Zellweger past the Bridget Jones character, and it shows on her moony, perturbed face in "The Edge of Reason." It's a sequel of absurd slapstick - in contrast to the mannered comedy of the original "Diary," - and sitcom trappings need jolts of inspired whimsy. But Hugh Grant drops by for a only cup of coffee and Colin Firth, as the constipated Marc Darcy, wraps himself in even more discomfort than he did in "Diary."

    That leaves Zellweger, who grinned and cried and stuffed herself into max support bras with zeal her first go round, earning nominations and perverse recognition for size swapping. Now, it's paycheck time, and little more, and no wonder Zellweger shed her chunky monkey physique so quickly post-production: She plays one miserable character. This is not the Jones you'd want to know.

    Director Beeban Kidron has designed "Edge of Reason" to make Bridget not a heroine but a lightning rod of unappealing, embarrassing sequences - in a pig slop, at Marc's lawyer ball, on the ski slopes, in, yes, a Thai prison (where the girls shrug off their communal, disease-ridden existence for an impromptu rendition of Madonna's "Like A Virgin.")

    What was it again that was so special about Ms. Jones? Is staring at someone as they sleep really that endearing a trait? How about suffering three increasingly annoying, meddling friends? Kidron seems to have forgotten Bridget's plucky cuteness - there isn't one scene in "Edge of Reason" where Zellweger is allowed to look, well, attractive for very long without being drenched or slopped or having her hair ruined.
