Always loved Emma Thompson. But her turn as Bridget Jones’s OB/GYN looks like a total hoot. Ready for the third installment of the Bridget Jones series? Synopsis!
After breaking up with Mark Darcy (Firth), Bridget Jones’s (Zellweger) “happily ever after” hasn’t quite gone according to plan. Fortysomething and single again, she decides to focus on her job as top news producer and surround herself with old friends and new. For once, Bridget has everything completely under control. What could possibly go wrong?
Then her love life takes a turn and Bridget meets a dashing American named Jack (Dempsey), the suitor who is everything Mr. Darcy is not. In an unlikely twist she finds herself pregnant, but with one hitch…she can only be fifty percent sure of the identity of her baby’s father.
So it’s who’s who with this storyline. (And c’mon now; it’s #DefinitelyDarcy people. I’ll riot otherwise.) Lemme just say that this looks SO MUCH BETTER than the downer of Mad About the Boy, the third in the novel series. (Fielding, you cannot kill off Darcy! Bad form. Bad.) Anyway, Colin Firth and Patrick Dempsey look like they’re having fun with being the maybe-daddies of the film. And Renée Zellweger seems to be able to slip on Bridget’s skin like it’s second nature.
FYI: I’ve decided to use the newest UK trailer, as it’s funnier and a little bit longer than the US version. Whee!
