Our Score
Renée Zellweger stars in the first cinematic outing for the 30-something Londoner. In an Oscar-nominated turn, Zellweger brings wit and warmth to the role of Bridget, the hapless, chardonnay-drinking heroine with "absolutely enormous panties", whose life takes a different turn when she has a flirtation with her boss (Hugh Grant), despite the derision of an old family friend (Colin Firth). With a zinger-laden script co-written by Richard Curtis (Love Actually), this adaptation of Helen Fielding's novel also benefits from the super-duo performances of Grant and Firth, while Zellweger excels as the eccentric Brit. Well-directed by Sharon Maguire (who returned for third film, 2016's Bridget Jones's Baby), this represents the best in British romantic comedy and is very funny indeed.


A single woman begins a new year with resolutions to find love, quit her bad habits and take a step up the career ladder. Her plans crumble as she tries to deal with her mother's infidelity, get over a passionate fling with her boss and come to terms with her feelings for an uptight lawyer. Romantic comedy based on Helen Fielding's novel, starring Renee Zellweger, Hugh Grant and Colin Firth.
