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.

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.

The filmmakers are uncritically in love with their heroine and her milieux and have romanticised them to an almost laughable degree.

Renee Zellweger, a born Texan, not only nails the most beloved woman of modern British fiction but embodies and owns her.

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.

Americans...will find Zellweger's newly acquired English accent believable enough to enjoy her comic performance.

Si las mujeres son de Venus, Bridget nos hace pensar en que deberķamos tener visado ilimitado para entrar en tierras venusinas con tal de hallar a alguien como ella.
