Day 30

Movie: Bridget Jones's Diary
Starring: Renee Zellweger, Colin Firth
Genre: Comedy, Drama, Romance,
Year: 2001

Plot: Bridget is a singleton in her early 30's and has decided to change her life, and keep a record of it for the year.  She quickly finds herself jumping back and forth between two relationships wondering if she's ever going to get it right or end up alone?

Not only is this a book to film, but it's a book-inspired by a book- that made it to film.   It's based on Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen, and even manages to snag Colin Firth into playing nearly the same character of Mr. Darcy in both.

This is such a loved story for so many reasons, one being that it's identifiable no matter who you are.  If you've been single for any amount of time, you will see bits of yourself in Bridget.
This is a movie I watch about once a year, usually on New Year's day.  I always find myself laughing, agreeing, crying and dreaming about the situations in it.  From her making up her mind not to date creeps, to the over the top silly self indulgence of her mother, you can't help but find yourself thinking about how it relates to your own life. 

What do I think I learned from this film?
Always keep your journal locked away from the public unless you want to risk loosing those you love over something you might have said in hast.  And we all want a little bit of the bad boy mixed into a perfect gentleman.
