Bridget Jones's Baby

Renée Zellweger returns alongside Colin Firth and Patrick Dempsey in the third instalment in the Bridget Jones franchise. Bridget Jones's Diary director Sharon Maguire also returns.

After breaking up with Mark Darcy (Firth), Bridget's (Zellweger) "happily ever after" hasn’t quite gone according to plan. 40-something and single again, she decides to focus on her job as a top news producer and surround herself with old friends and new. For once, Bridget has everything completely under control. What could possibly go wrong? Then she meets a dashing American named Jack (Dempsey), the suitor who is everything Mr. Darcy is not.  When she finds herself pregnant, she can only be 50 percent sure of the identity of her baby's father.

Not a comedy for the ages, but it's interesting to see a rom-com starring a middle-aged woman grappling with irrelevance in the workplace.

A warm, witty and welcome return - intelligently evolved and an absolute hoot. As Bridget would say: 'v.good'.

Funny and charming. But what's missing is Hugh Grant as Daniel 'invest in lockable knickers' Cleaver.

Basically, Bridget presides over a kind of coalition government of very good supporting turns which on aggregate enforce their chaotic comic rule over the audience. Just about.

While not all of this helter-skelter rom-com works, this is a welcome reminder of all the endearing and rip-snorting qualities of the original.

She's a breath of fresh air; a character we can relate to because we recognise a little of ourselves in her.

It is agreeably optimistic, faithful to the characters (if not Fielding's third novel) and very funny.

Delivers on what the franchise has always done best.

More than a match for the original, the third outing for Bridget has a solid story with holes you'll forgive thanks to the much-missed onscreen magic created by a director and her leading woman.

Enjoyable Chapter Ending

loved it even thought her face looked a bit weird (due to cosmetic surgery?) but storyline was really funny and kept my interest through the whole movie. Would watch again

Bridget is still fighting her demons with intelligent hilarity and tugs on our heart-strings

Movie makers do not admit it publicly, but there have always been 'women's films' and 'men's films'. Historically, the film industry catered more to the male viewpoint by favouring action drama but in the post-feminist era the female perspective is prominent.

Better than the first 2

I liked this film better than the first 2 films. It is not high quality cinema, but for what it is, it is well made and people know what to expect when they go to see it. If you liked the first movie, you will enjoy this one.

Great closure for Bridget Jones's fans

It is so wonderful to watch Bridget Jones get the happiness she deserves. A real feel good movie with a few laughs all rolled into one.

Surprisingly good

Honestly, I really really enjoyed it. At some moments I was weeping with laughter. I appreciated that there was genuine character growth and Bridget wasn't as crippled with indecision and lack of confidence as in the sequel. They traipsed out the menagerie of loved characters from the franchise whilst making space for some worthwhile new friends....
