Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason / Reviews

So clumsy and crass that it makes you doubt the pleasure of the first movie.

A calamitous disappointment of a sequel. The old Bridget we all loved for her frailties, failings and feelings is gone.

It's testament to Zellweger's likeability and skill that the film is still enjoyable, but it lacks the element of surprise.

The Edge of Reason is a jolly movie and I smiled pretty much all the way through, but it doesn't shift into high with a solid thunk the way Bridget Jones's Diary did.

Edge of Reason is less a film than a series of non-stop embarrassments set to a sunny soundtrack.

There's a lack of a big emotional arc to tie the episodic structure together. However, on a performance level, the movie is practically flawless.

A triumph of performance, production, and adaptation over the empty-calorie dither of its source material.

One singularly unbecoming character, who should, by rights, forever remain a "singleton."

Sucked out the charm of the original and replaced it with crude pratfalls and enough shag gags to stuff the next three Austin Powers movies.

For the most part, Edge Of Reason is as saggy and well-worn as Bridget's big knickers.
