Bridget Jones's Diary Reviews

As a film, however, item misses its mark, failing to capitalize on the staccato rhythms and sardonic wit of Bridget's inner life.

Ms. Zellweger makes the most of what she's given and manages to triumph time and again over her pratfalls and public rump displays. In a word, she's terrific.

It's Zellweger's unselfishness that sells the movie. How many other young actresses would be willing to let a movie make fun of their fat thighs?

The film tries to position itself as a comic anthem for unshackled single-womanhood, but it's aimed at the bland middle.

Where the highly likable actress [Zellweger] proves most valuable is in making us adore this insecure, clumsy, contradictory creature.

It's glib when it should be witty, flat in situations demanding heels and wants us to believe that an actress celebrated for her beauty would perceive herself as unappealing.

The script ... loses sight of the book's breezy wit and stacks up implausibilities as high as Bridget's half-eaten boxes of Cadbury's Milk Tray.

One imagines Bridget Jones attending the film and then writing about it later in her diary, and the likelihood of her savaging the evening seems high.

I'm ... impressed by [Zellweger's] impersonation of ordinariness, especially after seeing her looking so slinky-glam in her lemon-drop gown on Oscar night.
