Great little charmer. But avoid the sequels like a bad Christmas sweater
I think you need to like romantic comedies to enjoy this movie, and that eliminates a lot of guys who tolerate Rom-Coms for the sake of their ladies. And I wonder if they hadn’t chosen the actors and actresses for the dozen or so lead and supporting roles so well, this film would have been more of a stinker. But they procured a fine ensemble cast and that keeps the smell down to a bare minimum.
There are awkward, cringe-worthy moments that don’t make me giggle as they are supposed to – too much gray in my hair, perhaps? (And there isn’t that much really!) But despite those awkward lines, to paraphrase a line in the movie, I like it just the way it is. And I think it should have been kept just the way it was. I am now referring to the sequels. Don’t get me started, please. The follow-up turned into what just referred to, what the original film could have been like if they hadn’t kept their eye on the proverbial ball. As for the second sequel, I just found out today that it exists and I will keep my distance. Stick to the original, I say, and let the rest of the franchise float unbidden out there, just beyond the corner of your eye.
_**Edgy, cute and amusing romcom with Renée Zellweger, Hugh Grant and Colin Firth**_
A cute female in London (Renée Zellweger) is concerned about spinsterhood & other womanly issues and so starts an honest diary that narrates her misadventures catching the eye of her suave boss at a publishing company (Hugh Grant), her quirky friends and her relationship with a boring man she hates but somehow finds quietly attractive (Colin Firth).
“Bridget Jones’s Diary” (2001) is an English romcom that tries to be edgy, cute and amusing simultaneously. While it goes overboard with the cussing (less is always more) and the accents are too thick to grasp at times, the flick eventually won me over because it tries so hard and everything builds to a comical melee. It helps that Renée is adorable in a roundish way and is tastefully shown in alluring apparel, including a playboy bunny outfit.
The film runs 1 hour, 37 minutes, and was shot London, Surrey, Gloucestershire and Hertfordshire, England.
It’s not just charming – I insist it’s charming
With certain bad movies – “Plan 9 from Outer Space” is a famous extreme example – you start to wonder if there’s something wrong with people who don’t realise that they’re bad. I’m not saying that if someone LIKES “Plan 9” then his or her brain probably needs to be repaired; the suspicious, unhealthy thing is not LIKING the film, but being of the opinion that it’s good. (Many people have a soft spot for it precisely BECAUSE they realise how bad it is. In this way it differs from something like “Timecode”, where either liking the film OR having a high opinion of it is something to be embarrassed about.) And something similar applies to, say, “Citizen Kane”. Disliking it makes sense; thinking it’s a bad film does not.
But there’s another kind of film that tempts me to be even more presumptuous. “Dumbo” is the best example I can think of at the moment. I can see why one might (mistakenly) have a low opinion of “Dumbo”: some of the footage IS mere padding, the triumph at the end is too swift, the charge has been laid (falsely, but not ludicrously) that the crows are racist caricatures … and so forth. But surely even the people who think “Dumbo” is a bad film must still manage to like it. If they don’t, THEN I’m suspicious.
I feel this way, to a greater or lesser degree, about a number of light comedies, and this is one of them. I can’t honestly say that I revere or adore “Bridget Jones’s Diary” (N.B.: I’m male), but all the same, I can’t help thinking that people who take an active dislike to it have something wrong with them. This applies not just to the film as a whole but to Bridget Jones, the central character, in particular. What has she done to merit dislike? She’s beautiful (as beautiful as Renée Zellweger has ever been on screen), honest and kind-hearted. The diary she keeps certainly reveals her many flaws, but none is particularly pronounced, most are purely negative and anyway, she shares them all with the rest of us – so don’t pretend you’re not like this, too.
This is an amiable, well-written and fresh romantic comedy with, for ONCE, an attractive female protagonist. It’s far from being the greatest film ever made and there may be grounds for attacking it which I haven’t touched upon (I suppose there always are), and so all in all I’ll understand your not thinking as much of it as I do, but, dammit, you’d better LIKE it.
Not as Good as I thought
This is a very dull movie. Hardly anything about it was great.
Some of it was good but I did not enjoy it. The acting was typically british….boring and very dull.
Casting Rennee Zellwegger to play Bridget was a big mistake. It would have been better with someone like:
This is at best, an average movie with no plot or any big interest.
