Starring Rennee Zellweger, Colin Firth and Hugh Grant. From the novel by Helen Fielding. Directed by Beeban Kidron
I haven’t read the book so I can only comment on this as the film itself; which I loved. To do a sequel like this is very brave as they often end up really crap, but this doesn’t and I think actually it’s better than the first.
Although it’s the same relationship problems, and some of the situations are a bit obvious (the inevitable boring lawyers’ dinner; pretending to be able to ski when she can’t really.) the way Rennee Zellweger plays Bridget in a hilarious but completely believable way takes over all that. I used to be a bit annoyed about an American playing a British part – but they have to do that to get the American audience (and money) and she does do it well.
There’s not a lot I can say about it really as you may not have seen it yet. But I would say it’s well worth the trip to the cinema. But perhaps take the girls rather than your boyfriend.
Ps. Did you realise her friend called Jude is the same actress as Moaning Myrtle in Harry Potter?!
