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!

Casting Renee Zellweger as this British icon drew plenty of flak. But she proved impossible to not root for while flashing a sweet smile, bunching her body up in a "right-o, old chap" shoulder shrug and waddle-walking in unflattering panties and girdles.

Just seconds into Sharon Maguire's adaptation of Helen Fielding's beloved novel, it's hard to imagine that there was such controversy surrounding the casting of Renee Zellweger.

Provides a few laughs but failed to make me care on which loves-me, loves-me-not petal this film ends.
April 15, 2008
A cheerfully frothy romantic comedy that benefits from sharp writing, lively performances and touching characterisation.

As a film, however, item misses its mark, failing to capitalize on the staccato rhythms and sardonic wit of Bridget's inner life.
April 15, 2008
It's so aggressive you don't even have to like it; the movie likes itself well enough for the both of you.
April 15, 2008
The filmmakers are uncritically in love with their heroine and her milieux and have romanticised them to an almost laughable degree.
August 11, 2007
Renee Zellweger, a born Texan, not only nails the most beloved woman of modern British fiction but embodies and owns her.
April 27, 2007
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.
June 24, 2006
This ultra-hyped adaptation of the ultra-successful Helen Fielding novel sends you out with a smile on your face.
May 26, 2006
A ripping success.
December 1, 2005
With great energy, style and humor, Maguire takes us into Bridget's tumultuous journey out of spinsterhood and into the tumultuous world of dating.
June 23, 2004
Americans...will find Zellweger's newly acquired English accent believable enough to enjoy her comic performance.
