A sequel that should have been buried six feet under.

the sequel gives us a heroine who acts like an idiot and then whines about the lack of men in her life.

A little too much like the movie version of a 'greatest hits' package -- only with the originals replaced by engaging but uninspired cover versions of all the songs.

Follow this fun from the streets of London to the slopes of the Alps and the shores of Thailand. Bridget will amaze and amuse you.

The sequel has about as much emotional depth as a sitcom, only without even the latter's meager laughs.

It's testament to Zellweger's likeability and skill that the film is still enjoyable, but it lacks the element of surprise.

[Zellweger's] never allowed to be quite as human, quite as pained. She's only allowed to be ridiculous.

Only the sublimely snakey Grant emerges unscathed

She already had her happy ending. Why should we suffer with her again only to enjoy the same victory?

It's only more of the same but without the spark of originality of Bridget Jones's Diary.

This isn't a very good script. But Renee Zellweger is so charming, and so FUNNY, she makes the movie a joy.

Use the money to go upgrade your original Bridget Jones DVD to the new swanky collector's edition (pick me up one, will you?) and save your money on this movie.

The humiliation of Bridget Jones is done so many times that it's not funny and it's not clever and it's not interesting.

...le fric aussi a ses raisons que l'Âge de raison n'ignore pas.

The best thing about Bridget Jones's Diary was the chemistry between the movie's three stars... The same can be said for the sequel.

Director Beeban Kidron and her cadre of writers have almost completely betrayed the character and everything that made her real and resonant.

Dear Renée: We like your work. But if you put on forty pounds to recreate the moronic character of Bridget Jones one more time, we're going to take it personally.

With the exception of Zellweger, it's a film that has assembled its cast only for continuity of facial recognition and nothing so important as story, characters or emotion.
Full Review| Original Score: 2/4

It may be worth a matinee for a gaggle of girlfriends, but guys should stay away and Helen Fielding, who created the character, should be ashaimed of herself.
| Original Score: 3/5
