Director Sharon Maguire’s Bridget Jones’s Baby is a delightful comedy that should please adult women, as well as their dates/husbands.
Renée Zellweger is back in the role of Bridget Jones as she turns 43 without a man in her life. But, through a series of bizarre circumstances, within the same week she has relations with two men, millionaire businessman Jack (Patrick Dempsey) and her old lawyer love Mark (Colin Firth), then finds herself pregnant without knowing which of the two is the father.
The script by Helen Fielding, Dan Glazer and Emma Thompson provides good parts for a number of fine British actors, including Gemma Jones, Jim Broadbent, Emma Thompson, Sarah Solemani and Kate O’Flynn.
Zellweger is able to ride the rollercoaster of comedy and poignancy with more style than she showed in the past films in this franchise.
I give Bridget Jones’s Baby a 3.9 out of 5.
