Though there was controversy over the choice of casting, Zellweger's Bridget Jones is a sympathetic, likable, funny character, giving this romantic comedy a lot of charm.

As a film, however, item misses its mark, failing to capitalize on the staccato rhythms and sardonic wit of Bridget's inner life.
It's so aggressive you don't even have to like it; the movie likes itself well enough for the both of you.
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.
This ultra-hyped adaptation of the ultra-successful Helen Fielding novel sends you out with a smile on your face.
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?
Yes, the movie adaptation is just fine, thank you.
This is a picture that gets right down to the brass tacks of singleton urban living for women in their 30s.
It's fine, for an evening, if you just want to pack your troubles in an old kit bag.
The film is excessively, parochially British at its periphery, yet insufficiently so at its core.
That Zellweger can make us believe in Bridget's heaving inner world is par for the course -- she's a supremely talented comic actress. That she was willing to risk her own status as sex symbol by looking like an everywoman is really impressive.
A blessed reminder of just how good -- and how pointed -- British comedies can be.
Oh, such fun for older teens!
A decent Rom-com with some very funny scenes, but sooo predictable. Not quite sure about the cult status, but quite enjoyable any how.
Zellweger is quite adorable in this heartwarming romantic comedy that compensates for its relative predictability with a lot of charm and heart, and it is also very nice to see how the great songs heard in the film punctuate what happens on screen with a good deal of sensibility.
Excellent adaptation of the Helen Fielding novel. Bridget is unlucky in love, a little overweight, smokes too much and has an embarrassing mother. This is her lucky year - two men but will she chose Mr. Right? I love the fighting scene in the street. Great cast. Funny rom com. You just sympathise with Bridget all the way, singleton in her 30s with smug married couples. Mark Darcy is dreamy. I find it amusing that they picked Colin Firth because he played Mark Darcy in Pride and Prejudice.
