Academy Award(R) winner Renée Zellweger (Best Supporting Actress, COLD MOUNTAIN, 2003; CHICAGO) and Hugh Grant (LOVE ACTUALLY, TWO WEEKS NOTICE) star in a delightful comedy about the ups and downs of modern romance. Bridget (Zellweger), a busy career woman, decides to turn over a new page in her life by channeling her thoughts, opinions and insecurities into a journal that becomes a hilarious chronicle of her adventures. Soon she becomes the center of attention between a guy who's too good to be true (Grant) and another who's so wrong for her, he could be just right (Colin Firth -- LOVE ACTUALLY)! Based on the best-selling book, BRIDGET JONES'S DIARY is another acclaimed crowd-pleaser from the hit makers of FOUR WEDDING AND A FUNERAL and NOTTING HILL.

While the book was okay -- can't remember if I reviewed it yet, but I'd give it three stars -- I really can't figure out how someone was able to adapt the story into this great movie, which I've watched more times than I can remember. I'm a huge P & P fan, and I just feel that the movie portrayed the relationship between Bridget and Mr. Darcy much better than the book. In fact, in the book, I kept skimming, wondering, "Where's Mr. Darcy?"
The movie ending was so much better, too; although, I can see where the author was going for her version of Lydia running off with Mr. Wickham in the book, using Bridget's mom and Mr. Tangerine.
Anyway, the movie is a hoot, definitely worth a watch! Renee Zellweger does a wonderful job. By the time you get to the end, you're rooting for a happily ever after, one of the reasons I'm not sure if I want to see the new release. I just can't imagine that Bridget has more doubts.
So then Bridget moves on by eventually dating the British handsmome Mark Darcy(Colin Firth) after getting over a tragic divorce with Daniel, but then one night Daniel decides to drop by Bridget's apartment one night while Mark and Bridgets friends are having dinner to try to get Bridget back, since Daniel's mistress/Mark's ex-wife(Lara)ended up dumping him and breaking off their engagement resulting in Mark and Daniel duking it out in the street trying to win over Bridget while Mark also avenges Daniel for stealing his former wife(Lara)by beating the crap out of Daniel in the process after a hasty altercation, which unfortunately kinda left Bridget caught between a rock & a hard place even though Daniel ended up getting what he deserved.
The truth is, I kind of couldn't help feeling kind of sorry for Daniel at first right after the ugly clash he had with Mark, since Mark nearly beat Daniel to a pulp, which also resulted in Daniel getting a double whammy in the process on top of that, but at the same time, it was like Daniel got what he deserved, since he broke Bridgets heart, but Mark did nothing to hurt Bridget or Lara and was a much bigger and better more mature gentleman than Daniel was and seemed to be a more compatible boyfriend/lover for Bridget.
The end was also very touching and heartfelt when Mark drops by Bridget's apartment all of the sudden on short notice on New Years and turning down a job in New York to inform Bridget that he wants to reconcile with her and then ends up reading Bridget's diary by accident while sorting through her stuff while he's trying to find something and reads a nasty little paragraph about himself(Mark Darcy) while Bridget is freshening up to look sexy for Mark to do hubba hubba, but then Mark walks out of Bridgets apartment making us and Bridget think that Mark was leaving Bridget again after reading the nasty stuff Bridget wrote about Mark, but then it turns out that Mark wasn't going to be dumping her and that Mark just wanted to surprise her with a new diary to make a fresh start together as an item again and for Bridget to make herself a new diary starting a brand new life with Mark.
Therefore, it seemed like Bridget's bloody diary lead to nothing, but trouble, injustice, and grief, kind of like how one innocent love letter lead to 6 sticky situations in the movie "SECRET ADMIRER".
So if you're looking for an interesting comedy drama, "Bridget Jones' Diary" is a good movie to watch and consider.
My friends and I choose this one time and time again- so if you're in need of a good romantic comedy... reach for Bridget. With that in mind definitely not for the younger crowd- there is some pretty crass language and content in there at times (there is a reason it's rated R).
(On a side note... I actually preferred the movie to the book. It's rare that I side with the movie... as they usually always butcher the plotline... but in this case their changes/additions really added some flavor that was lacking in the book version.)
