2001 M Contains violence,offensive language and sex scenes.

It's Monday morning, Bridget has woken up with a headache, a hangover and her boss.

From the makers of Four Weddings and a Funeral and Notting Hill comes the screen adaptation of Helen Fielding's international best seller starring Golden Globe winner Renee Zellweger (from Nurse Betty and Jerry Maguire) in the title role as the dynamic, irrepressible and outrageously original Bridget Jones. 32-year-old Bridget smokes too much, drinks too much and has a tendency to say whatever's on her mind. As a New Year's resolution she decides it's time to take control of her life - and starts keeping a diary. Now, the most provocative, erotic and hysterical book on her bedside table is the one she's writing. With a taste for adventure and an opinion on every subject - from exercise to men to food to sex and everything in between - she's turning the page on a whole new life. The fireworks begin when her charming though disreputable boss played by Hugh Grant (from Four Weddings and a Funeral and Notting Hill) takes an interest in the quirky Miss Jones and the ups and downs of their ill-fated relationship prove hilarious. Thrown into the mix are Bridget's band of slightly eccentric friends and a rather disagreeable acquaintance (Colin Firth from Shakespeare in Love) that Bridget cannot seem to stop running into or help finding quietly attractive.

Was o'kay. Has been rated correctly, stating has sex scenes and offensive language. Not suitable as family entertainment, but not too bad as a bit of light mind less entertainment for the mature adult

This movie is great, seeing 2 men fight over a woman is good. Despite her lack of self-confidence and doubt she still rises up and puts herself out there. It shows women all over the world that they can do what they want no matter what

A well acted light comedy. The end might be somewhat predictable but there are a number of very funny moments before you get there.

I did enjoy this movie more than I thought I would. Good acting, nice to see Hugh getting a crack!!

We didn't watch this movie to the end. The poor story line didnt give Renee Zellweger a chance to show her acting ability.

A typical love story about Bridget Jones, where wome bits dragged on for a bit too long. Quite a few boring scenes but the ending was predictable! A good watch first time round but wouldn't watch it again!

The eternal triangle. We enjoyed this movie but not much meat in it. Renee is a very talented actress. We liked Chicago and Cold Mountain better.

An okay modern Pride and Prejudice story full of predictability and a few laughs. Nothing more than a light-hearted tale but a good enough movie when you're hung over and don't want to think too hard. (This one is okay but avoid the sequel.)
