Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason

Critics Consensus

Bogged down in slapstick and silliness, Edge of Reason is a predictable continuation of the Bridget Jones story.

The sequel to "Bridget Jones's Diary" finds Bridget (Renée Zellweger) working as a TV host and still dating barrister Mark (Colin Firth). But Bridget is jealous of the time Mark spends with a co-worker (Jacinda Barrett), and, despite a vacation meant to smooth things over, ends their relationship. On assignment in Thailand, she has a dalliance with her disreputable ex, Daniel (Hugh Grant), and is temporarily jailed on the false accusation of drug smuggling, before Mark comes to the rescue.

Audience Reviews for Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason

  • Jun 09, 2012
    A comedy that is an exact retread of the original. I don't like movies that backtrack. Here we have Bridget Jones suddenly doubting Darcy's fidelity. This leads to misunderstandings, where she is soon, once again, torn between Darcy and Cleaver. The film redoes the same jokes, with funny Christmas sweaters, and another Firth and Grant fight. These are also the funniest moments. At some point the film goes off the rails in such a confusing fashion. Jones ends up arrested because of drug possession and she winds up in a Thai prison. This sounds like some depressing drama, but it's OK, because she teaches the inmates how to have fun with a song and dance number and she also gives them chocolate. If a movie makes a Thai prison look good, I'm pretty sure it fails overall. It also has a climax where they play 3 songs back to back, I assume to sell that ever important soundtrack. A guaranteed hit on Mother's Day I bet.

    While in the first movie Bridget Jones was an adorable character, here she is a neurotic, irritating and selfish caricature that gets herself in only stupid, artificial situations, and even worse than the fact that this film seems like an unfocused collage of sketches is that it is not funny at all.

    Singing Madonna's Virgin inside Thailand jail cell is one of the most hilarious scene I've ever seen! 6/10.

    I love Bridget Jones. As good as the first one, I would even say better. An exceptional sequel. Extremely hilarious! She never fails to impress. Renee Zelwegger plays her perfectly. The skiing scene is my favourite. So funny!
