Bridget Jones's Baby

By Dr Jackie Raphael

The much-loved Bridget Jones (Renee Zellweger) returns to our lives with the third instalment in the franchise. This time, she is pregnant but is unsure who the father is after a week of debauchery. While Bridget Jones's Baby has several nods to the previous films, it still brings an original plot and fresh laughs. Of course, Mark Darcy (Colin Firth) is by her side and a wonderful new addition is brought to the story - Jack, who is played by the charming Patrick Dempsey. No matter how much you may love Darcy, Jack makes a formidable romantic opponent, as they battle for Bridget's affection. The film also works Hugh Grant's rakish Daniel into the story in a clever way. The chemistry between the cast members is fantastic. Fans of the original film will certainly enjoy seeing Bridget onscreen again.
