The only thing I remember is the fake Christmas snow scenes.

Maguire must be commended for trying something different in an industry where old, tired formula rules the day, and Zellweger is charming even if her character...isn't.

A bad love life, and even worse underwear, has never looked so good.

Each facet is studied and turned into a joke for which there is no option but to laugh.

What audiences found so endearing about this movie escapes me.

Bridget the character is pallid and inauspicious, and whole point is that modest character is well-served by modest movie that nails central task of breathing life into page-creation in a way that welcomes ironic self-recognition and celebratory pleasure.

Zellweger's performance had all the curves of real life. Hugh Grant gave the most restrained, game free performance I've seen for him in a while. And Colin Firth was drier than any martini.

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?

Thoroughly enjoyable romantic comedy -- smart, saucy, brilliantly-cast, superbly acted and laugh-out loud funny with pleasing regularity.

The doings are silly, frothy, inconsequential... and very funny.

It's almost worth admission price to see Zellwegger be so open with the emotions of the character and with her own personal appearance.

[Zellweger] blasts through the self-pitying conventions of most romantic comedy to dig out a spirited, surprising, full-blooded woman.

Even though the leads are good, it's far from enough to make the film worth seeing, unless you wish to waste money and lose two hours of your life.

Call me sacrilegious, but I believe most of the story changes worked very well here.

Zellweger, a walking ray of sunshine, makes Bridget eminently likable, yet it's more than a little frustrating to watch an intelligent, attractive woman continually tear herself down...

Funny, heartwarming, and possessing the unique ability to make you cringe with empathetic horror.
