    LOVE this movie

    I LOVE this movie! Bridget Jones is a hilarious, make you feel so good about yourself kind of movie. I have seen it before, but forgot just how funny it was, I was actually laughing out loud and crying. Bridget is so real and vulnerable and puts herself into the most outragous situations. This is a must see!

    Money Well Spent!

    When the Bridget Jones novels were published I read them and enjoyed them. But I missed the movies in the cinema because of the busy-ness of my own real life (marriage, baby, profession). I made up for lost time when lately I was home sick for a few days and needed some distracting but not tiring entertainment. My local library lent me the first movie and I found this one at my neighborhood B&N for a great price. Even after viewing it 2-3 times, it is still funny. My husband had some good laughs from it too--it's not just a movie for women.

    There are some memorable scenes (Daniel asks how well he performs in bed; Mark's initial reaction to Bridget's possible pregnancy; Bridget's unwitting trial of magic mushrooms and Bridget's arrival at the airport after her Thailand adventure--good dialogue between her and her parents.) The cast did very well: Renée Zellweger was convincing enough that I felt her emotions such as when Mark visited her in prison. Hugh Grant once again played so well the singleminded, slightly smarmy yet charming lover and Colin Firth carries on as the still-stiff Mark Darcy. Sally Phillips, James Callis, Shirley Henderson, Gemma Jones and Jim Broadbent shine as supporting cast members and I've become fans of theirs as a result of the Bridget Jones films.

    Readers of the books will note that the script is not perfectly true to Helen Fielding's words but, then, movies never are. The Rebecca character in the book has been changed and split in two, in a sense, yielding Rebecca as Mark's slim assistant and Janie the Jellyfish. Fortunately, the Thai prison chapter is intact, even including the singing with makeshift microphones. My only complaint is that a few parts of the script fall a little flat in spots, such as near the end when Bridget bursts into what she thinks is Mark's office. There is perhaps too much physical comedy--poor Bridget is doused or dirtied a little more than seems fair. But she carries forth, "still perky" as she says, and gives us an entertaining film worth watching over and over. Now that I am healthy again I still enjoy it.

    Included on the dvd are a handful of deleted scenes. The production values vary in their quality, naturally, as they were not included in the final cut. But they are worth viewing for the depth they add to the story, especially during the time when Bridget and Mark have broken up and their future together is uncertain. I also appreciated the director's insights and explanations of why she included what she did.

    I hope the rumors are true, that there will be a third Bridget Jones film in 2011 and that the cast will remain as before with the previous films. If only they would allow Mark Darcy to relax and take off his suit more often (wet white shirt is optional).

    Hated the first one loved the second

    This is one of the rare movies where part two is actually better than the first one. If i fall asleep on a movie during a transatlantic flight, it means its bad, really bad. I will watch anything just to pass some time. Part Two was hillarious, witty, funny and definetly a must. Yes, of course i had my husband watch it as well and can't really say if he was honest with me or not but he said he liked it. Indication that he did so ( he didn't fall asleep). Good movie...

    Loved the first movie...hated this one

    Okay, I know sequels rarely live up to the originals, but this one was just plain stupid. The entire time I found myself asking why. Why in what is such a perfect relationship does Bridget walk away and why, if Mark loves her so much, does he let her go so easily. You want the answer? Because if not for the forced drama of the breakup, there'd be no reason for a sequel. And that's just how this movie felt...forced. Mark tracks down Hugh Grant for another fight. Lame. And the jailhouse scenes? Are they supposed to be funny? I wanted this to be a good movie because I loved the first one so much. And once again, I'm sick of seeing an average sized woman being portrayed as "fat" Give me a break. The only thing that looked plump about Rene in either movie was her face. Yes, she didn't look like the normal skin and bones hollywood standard. But saying she is fat is offensive to normal, healthy looking women everywhere. And this is coming from a guy. Anyway, stay away from this one if you want to keep your same view of the characters and magic of the first.

    great, if not better than the first

    the first bridget jones was funny and so cute but the second one was hilarious. the ski scene is the best in the movie and i loved every moment of it. the situations she naively gets herself into..... and you have got to love colin firth and hugh grant. i didn't think there was anyway it could come close to being as good as the first bridget jones but i was greatly pleased when i went to go see it. a must see.

    Bridget is ME!

    I absolutely adore Bridget Jones! I saw this on big screen and it was great! Okay, I admit, the first is always best, but when compared to the "Edge of Reason" book, the movie has the best ending!

    Funny cute sequel

    The lead character was more annoying, silly, and stupid in the sequel. We did not enjoy the performance as much and found her less attractive and even chubbier than she was in the first movie. But Colin Firth is exceptional as is Hugh Grant, and it was a really enjoyable cute movie.
