Bridget Jones's DiaryDirector: Sharon Maguire
Based on Helen Fielding's hugely popular novel, this romantic comedy follows Bridget (Renee Zellweger), a post-feminist, thirty-something British woman who has a penchant for alcoholic binges, smoking, and an inability to control her weight. While trying to keep these things in check and also deal with her job in publishing, she visits her parents for a Christmas party. They try to set her up with Mark (Colin Firth), the visiting son of one of their neighbors. Snubbed by Mark, she instead falls for her boss Daniel (Hugh Grant), a dashing lothario who begins to send her suggestive e-mails that soon lead to a dinner date proposition. Daniel reveals that he and Mark attended college together, during which time Mark had an affair with his fiancée. When Bridget finds Daniel cavorting with an American colleague, she decides to change her life with a new job as a TV presenter. At a dinner party, she bumps into Mark again, who expresses his affection for her; when Daniel claims he wants Bridget back, the two fight over who deserves her affections the most. Popular British performers Gemma Jones, Jim Broadbent, and Shirley Henderson appear in the supporting cast.

It was extremely enlightening at a time when I particularly needed to ''escape''! Light and fun and just a great movie for the holidays. My recommendation is light a fire, cozy cuddle on the couch in your jammies with some popcorn and prepare to laugh, laugh, laugh!
Superb acting by Renee Zellwegger. She surprised me by her approach to the role and actually making the character more hilarious than the character in the book, which was very hard to top. I was expecting the Texan actress to falter but she delivered in every scene. Colin Firth also did an excellent job by reprising his role from Pride and Prejudice. Both he and Hugh Grant were perfectly casted and perfectly played the part. It was also good to see Grant play a part that was much different from his push-over roles from before. The bottom line is that these actors did a fantastic job and I think what made this movie so enjoyable was that they had a fabulous screenplay to work with. So it was much more than great chemistry between the actors but more like great chemistry between the actors and the storyline.
If I could give 6 stars,i so would!Renne Zellweger is amazing,brilliant,inspiring-in other words perfect!Ironically,i also look at bridgetas a great role model for all women!It's not everyday you find a character who is charming,real,witty,strong,and willing to admit that she made mistakes-everything a woman should be.She's not perfect,but that's part of the reasons she looks so flawless to me.What can i say,a great movie,a very great movie!
This product was excellent viewing. A great copy of the movie. Great quality.
Every time this movie comes on tv, I stop to watch it, even though I have already seen it hundreds of times.
This rewrite of Pride and Prejudice is engaging and funny. Interesting how similar Darcy is and how different the female lead is.
i loved this movie!! i couldn't not stop laughing!!! i only bought it two days ago and i have watched it three times!!!
This movie is so worth seeing! It's hilarious! I laughed so hard I was in tears, especially during the fight scene! Zellweiger's portrayal of Bridget was spot on, and Colin Firth and Hugh Grant were great!
This was such a great movie ... it wasn't your typical 'chic flick': the romance was definitely there, but it was also hilarious. I laughed so hard to the point of tears. Renee Zellwegger, Hugh Grant, and Colin Firth were excellent ... Colin Firth, in particular, was incredibly sexy! This is a contemporary reprisal of his role as Darcy (first one was in 'Pride and Prejudice')... he's perfect as the emotionally and sexually repressed 'Mr. Right'. I, too, have just bought the movie ... I've actually lost track of the number of times I've seen it. I'm keeping my fingers crossed for a movie sequel!
Bridget Jones's Diary is a movie that is enjoyable. When I got this movie, the first week I watch it over and over. I couldn't tell people how many times I watched it, because I lost count after seven. This is a movie that will make you cry and laugh.
Best british comedy in years
I had serious doubts about this movie before seeing it. It looked just like another sappy girl movie, and even though I am a girl, I generally don't like that type of show. Bridget Jones's Diary was so much more than that though...it was one of the funniest movies I've ever seen. And Hugh Grant is so yummy!! This movie has a great plot line and is so easy to relate to as a female :) Excellente!!
This is a perfect romantic yet very funny movie! It's has become my favorite movie of all!
I absolutely LOVE this movie. I have seen it 3 times and laugh just as hard as the first time I saw it. The cast is incredible, I love the way Colin Firth plays Mark Darcy. I am adding this to my DVD collection.
this is the most incredible movie ever. my dad introduced it to me last year and ever since then i rave on and on about it. It is truly a movie you cannot miss. DO NOT DENY YOURSELF THIS MOVIE!!
i loved this movie. it was like a modern version of Pride and Predjudice. Colin Firth and Renee Zellwigger were perfect for their parts.
I read both books before I saw the film & they were absolutely hilarious. I must admit that the film is excellent aswell but the book is always better than the film. I've watched the film about 10 times already & I'm still planning to watch it many more times. Colin Firth is absolutely gorgeous & you may say I like the film because of him, I've only fancied him in the last week, so that cannot be true, his character is just so sweet. I'm a massive Bridget Jones' Diary FANATIC!
This was a cute and funny romantic movie. Colin Firth is soooo gorgeous and his mannerisms so sweet. He is definitely what a girl wants and what makes the movie!!! Renee Zellweger was excellent and Hugh Grant played a great Lothario. I have watched it over and over and purchased it because of Colin Firth.
I don’t normally like this kind of movie, but this is much more believable then your average romantic comedy. It’s one of the few movies that I can watch over and over again and not get sick of it.
My best friend and I regularly curl up on the couch with a glass of wine and giggle endlessly at this fabulous movie. (Ooof, fell over.) The book is better, of course, but that's difficult to imagine with such a great movie. Watching it makes life seem funny again. And ... it's not just a girl movie: I know several guys who love it as well. I'd also like to say that Renee Zellwegger is lovely as Bridget, and I don't understand why the moviemakers and the critics make her out to be so fat. (She supposedly weights 130 pounds, which by most people's definition is not fat.) The message in the book is that Bridget is not fat, and is a great girl just as she is. I hate that the movie mires that, but it's wonderful all the same. Can't wait for the sequel.
I could not help giggling throughout the movie. Rene Zellwegger acts so well as Bridget, we can't come to hate Bridget even though she makes common mistakes in the story which might otherwise irritate us. She is charming! This character makes us think about our happiness and true love both of which are difficult to achieve. If you are a woman who wants to get married or have a boyfriend but not succeeding just now, this is a must-see movie! After you have laughed a lot at this, you will definitely get a better eye to get a guy.
