Repeat of first film lacks charm. Not for kids.

There's a big empty space where the heart of this movie should be.

Frankly, I feel like a lot of the intangible 'heart' of the first movie is replaced here with an ongoing conversation about sex.
| Original Score: 2.5/4

An over the top, ham-fisted replay of the original.

Director Beeban Kidron spends most of her time re-working the original movie's formulas.

Se você ouvir alguém dizendo que se identificou com Bridget Jones, meu conselho é: rompa a amizade. Você não vai querer perder seu tempo com alguém assim.

"An unnecessary sequel."

The filmmakers would have been better served letting its predecessor exist undisturbed in the pop culture lexicon...

The outrageous character Renee Zellweger has crafted is so dynamic and funny she's able to hold the sequel together.

Instead of laughing with Bridget, The Edge of Reason laughs at her.

If Bridget Jones - a character incapable of learning from her mistakes - is a feminist role model, the movement's in for a setback.
| Original Score: 1.5/4

...a desperate and disjointed farcical venture that feels terribly strained. There's no declarative spark or soulful snap to this dull romantic comedy
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4

Oscar winner Jim Broadbent turns up long enough to say, "I wish I was dead."

Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason is not as good as the original - the Thai prison sequence makes certain of that - but it still works.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4

Although it is not quite as funny or believable as the first movie, the lovable Ms. Jones just squeaks by on her own (and her returning co-stars') charisma.

If this is what happens to Bridget after finding true love, she-and her movie-would have been better off as a single.

The latest installment of the life of Bridget Jones is tired and sloppy.
