Film Review – BRIDGET JONES: THE EDGE OF REASON (2004)

Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason (2004; UK/France/Germany/Ireland/USA; Technicolor; 108m) ∗∗½  d. Beeban Kidron; w. Andrew Davies, Helen Fielding, Richard Curtis, Adam Brooks; ph. Adrian Biddle; m. Harry Gregson-Williams.  Cast: Renee Zellweger, Colin Firth, Gemma Jones, Jim Broadbent, Hugh Grant, Jacinda Barrett, Sally Phillips, James Faulkner, Celia Imrie, Dominic McHale, Donald Douglas, Shirley Dixon, Neil Pearson, Rosalind Halstead, Tom Brooke. After finding love, Bridget Jones questions if she really has everything she’s dreamed of having. More of an encore than a sequel in that it repeats many of the jokes and situations from the first film. Zellweger’s Bridget becomes more of a slapstick clown than someone who can be sympathised with. Based on the novel by Helen Fielding. [15]
