Day 31

Movie: Bridget Jones The Edge of Reason
Starring:Renee Zellweger, Hugh Grant
Genre: Comedy, Romance,
Year: 2004
Format: DVD

Plot: Bridget is finally in the healthiest relationship of her life with Mark. Three months into it though, she starts to doubt if he's faithful to her when she starts to spot his new business partner always around. To make it worse, her exboyfriend Daniel has decided to get a job in the same television station as her.

This is the second installment of the Bridget Jones films, and picks up right where the first left off three months into the new year.
There is a few injokes to the first film, such as the electric sign that she walks past with her journal quotes, and the underwear scene.
The first film was based on Pride and Prejudice and this one has so many elements from Persuasion both by Jane Austen that you know it's going to be deliciously British.

One of the things I loved was the fact Zellweger was willing to gain the weight again for the role, I felt in the first film she was too fit. The fact she allowed herself to be physically softer says a lot about her dedication to the character.

One of the many reasons women identify with this story is that we've all had a few bad guys in our dating life like the character Daniel, and all hope to find a good guy like Mark Darcy.  It's being able to spot the good guy that takes skill.

What do I think I learned from this film?
Never offer to carry your new lover's suite case at the airport. If someone seems too good to be true, then they usually are.
