Oscar winners Renée Zellweger and Colin Firth are joined by Patrick Dempsey for the much-anticipated next chapter of the world's favorite singleton. Forty-something and single again after breaking up with Mark Darcy (Firth), Bridget decides to focus on her job and surround herself with old friends and new. But her love life takes a turn when she meets a dashing American named Jack (Dempsey), the suitor who is everything Mr. Darcy is not. In an unlikely twist, Bridget finds herself pregnant, but with one hitch…she can only be fifty percent sure of the identity of her baby's father.

ETA: Just want to add that it was definitely goofy and pretty predictable. And I recommend a glass of wine. Still, good chick flick.
Note to anyone in the business: if you change your appearance, you can not effectively portray any character that is franchised. It is an irritating constant throughout the film, that you're not really sure you're looking at Bridget. Zellweger claims she never had any plastic surgery. Um, then why are you unrecognisable? You just want to send her to her room (at her parents' house!) for forever for lying so blantantly. Of course she had surgery, this film makes it undeniable. She also manages to look far older than the character's age, that is, 43 (she was 46 when the film was made). She seems to have about one or two different facial expressions, and neither of them work well in the film. And that accent-- I always found it completely believable in the first two, and in this one, I was stunned at how forced and fake it feels.
Colin Firth cannot do a bad job-- but he's given so little to work with. Neither can Emma Thompson, but her part is so poorly written that it made me cringe. Dempsey comes across as a model who took an acting class-- and failed it. He is stiff and inauthentic throughout.
The plot moves slowly and awkwardly, it's hard to stay with it (despite, of course, knowing exactly what's going on). The charming side characters, her parents and "urban family" are given short shrift in this film, really just cameo parts.
The F word: constant. I am of a generation who used it very freely, and yet even I found it far too much, it just saturated the movie. A young child needed to use it? Bizarre.
I loved the first one, a true classic, the second one was enjoyable, even with the silly plot line, but this one is just dreck, just awful. But it's possible the franchise shall redeem itself; the last 15 seconds leaves a door open and hints at the possibility of yet another sequel. Hugh, please keep the rest of us in mind should you choose to sign up for number 4.
