Big Lawyer. Big Liar. Big Problem.

Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason is simply Bridget Jones’s Diary 3 years later and less funny. Mainly the reason romantic comedies shouldn’t have sequels. After the big kiss, where else is there left to go? Which is why Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason tears down all the progress in favor of telling the story all over again. That’s why you’ve likely never heard of this sequel. Even though Renée Zellweger, Colin Firth, and Hugh Grant all return. Bridget Jones has been living happily with Mark Darcy since the last time we saw her. Only now she feels like she’s not good enough for him. So that’s where things regress to the plot of the first film. Complete with Bridget returning to her cheating ex Daniel Cleaver. Save for a trip to the ski slopes and an even longer trip to Thailand. Everything else is practically the same. It begins with a Christmas gathering, Bridget gets embarrassed at a party, her arse is shown on live television, Mark and Daniel fight in public, declaring her love for Mark in an awkward way, she even tells off Daniel with a bloody Aretha Franklin song following it just like in the first film. Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason is all the same only far more concerned with putting Bridget in unfunny wacky situations. At least the music’s still good.
