Critic Reviews for Bridget Jones's Diary
Sadly, the film is tragically, depressingly, awfully of its time... The transition to screen stripped out much of Fielding's irony, nuance and cynicism.
It's fine, for an evening, if you just want to pack your troubles in an old kit bag.
That Zellweger can make us believe in Bridget's heaving inner world is par for the course -- she's a supremely talented comic actress. That she was willing to risk her own status as sex symbol by looking like an everywoman is really impressive.
A cheerfully frothy romantic comedy that benefits from sharp writing, lively performances and touching characterisation.
Audience Reviews for Bridget Jones's Diary
A decent Rom-com with some very funny scenes, but sooo predictable. Not quite sure about the cult status, but quite enjoyable any how.
Zellweger is quite adorable in this heartwarming romantic comedy that compensates for its relative predictability with a lot of charm and heart, and it is also very nice to see how the great songs heard in the film punctuate what happens on screen with a good deal of sensibility.
Excellent adaptation of the Helen Fielding novel. Bridget is unlucky in love, a little overweight, smokes too much and has an embarrassing mother. This is her lucky year - two men but will she chose Mr. Right? I love the fighting scene in the street. Great cast. Funny rom com. You just sympathise with Bridget all the way, singleton in her 30s with smug married couples. Mark Darcy is dreamy. I find it amusing that they picked Colin Firth because he played Mark Darcy in Pride and Prejudice.

|Bridget Jones:||And that was it. Right there. Right there, that was the moment... I suddenly realized that unless something change soon I was going to live a life where my major relationship was with a bottle of wine and I'd finally die fat and alone and be found three weeks later half-eaten by Alsatians, or I was about to turn into Glenn Close in Fatal Attraction.|
|Mark Darcy:||Mother, I do not need a blind date. Particularly not with some verbally incontinent spinster who smokes like a chimney, drinks like a fish, and dresses like her mother.|
|Bridget Jones:||Interviewer: What do you think about the El Nino phenomenon? Bridget: It's a blip. Latin music's on its way out.|
