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.
