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

November 12, 2004
Despite the engaging core players, Bridget's second diary goes over the edge, leaving little reason for a third installment.
| Original Score: 2.5/4
November 9, 2004
On those rare occasions when The Edge of Reason isn't regurgitating material from Bridget Jones' Diary, it is taking ill-advised excursions into unfunny slapstick and sappy melodrama.

If you liked the original, you'll like this one, only not quite as much.

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.

November 11, 2004
Renee Zellweger returns for a been-there, done-that sequel that's content to be more of the same.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
November 4, 2004
In the strain to explore new territory, the film pushes into areas that that don't fit comfortably into the lightly comic world of Bridget Jones.
November 15, 2004
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.
November 12, 2004
The edge of reason is clearly broached when Renee Zellweger's character starts teaching Thai prison inmates the words to Madonna's "Like a Virgin."
November 13, 2004
If this were the first film in the series rather than the second, there wouldn't be a second.

Several of the movie's farcical moments feel forced and strained.

November 20, 2004
...a desperate and disjointed farcical venture that feels terribly strained. There's no declarative spark or soulful snap to this dull romantic comedy

The entire original cast is back this time around... the original plot is back, too.
| Original Score: 2.5/5
November 12, 2004
Bridget Jones has lost her voice. ...The sequel lacks the character's sardonic and distinctly English commentary.

November 14, 2004
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.
