Bridget Jones’s Baby (15)
2016 ( Ireland | UK | France | USA ) ( Comedy, Romance )
STARRING: Renée Zellweger, Colin Firth, Patrick Dempsey
DIRECTOR: Sharon Maguire
Bridget Jones’s latest mistake is a whopper, even by her own standards. The world’s most famous singleton is pregnant and she can’t work out who is the dad – whether it is the estranged love of her life, Darcy (Colin Firth) or the equally handsome and dashing American technology guru Jack (Patrick Dempsey), who reckons that you can design algorithms for love.
Hilariously inventive and far more textured than a one joke script, Bridget Jones’s Baby is not only relevant and smart, it is a bit subversive and sarcastic, too. It is filled with priceless laugh out loud moments and comedic scenes that are all acutely observed.
Directed with style and wit by Sharon Maguire, who made the original, Bridget Jones’s Baby delivers in every department.
