Bridget Jones's Baby, ultimately, snatches victory from the jaws of defeat.

The film is not boring. It's too likeable for that, resonating with echoes of good times gone by. But I hope they don't do it again.

Although it's patchy and gives off an air of trying too hard, the movie is surprisingly funny.
September 19, 2016
Sweet, slight and fitfully funny, it's a movie admirers of the earlier films should mildly enjoy, but cast in terms any new parent can understand, isn't worth the price of a sitter.

So reliably does she embarrass herself at every public event that the film, trudging by on automatic, becomes an embarrassment, too.
September 16, 2016
The Bridget Jones saga has always relied on a mix of humiliation comedy and Cinderella fantasy, and director Sharon Maguire and her team make little effort to update the formula

Pregnant with possibility, but it fails to deliver.

I'd like to raise a glass of Chardonnay and toast Bridget Jones's Baby on its (mostly) hilarious, and long-anticipated, homecoming.
September 16, 2016
Welcome back, Bridget Jones.
September 15, 2016
The movie's mores can feel cluelessly retro as the ever-dithering Bridget lurches between one man and another.
Top Critic

Zellweger has precision comic timing, her British accent is close to flawless, and she's having a great time.
September 15, 2016
It's funny and engaging and the lead character, again played by Renee Zellweger, seems more like a real person than the caricature who wandered dazed through The Edge of Reason.

Bridget Jones's Baby leaves two happy impressions: 1) Welcome back Bridget! 2) More Emma Thompson, please.
September 15, 2016
It feels current because they've allowed the character to grow. Bridget's still awkward and prone to embarrassing foibles, but she's older, wiser, comfortable in her own skin.
September 15, 2016
It sounds godawful in title and concept - but which in execution is a fizzy delight. Warning: The sight of middle-agers bonking may cause teen tremors.
September 15, 2016
I missed Zellweger on-screen more than I thought I did, especially in this type of role, playing flawed, down-to-earth women who aren't flawed just because they say they are, but because they feel like the same type of hot mess I can be.

Of all the performances in a patchy production, only one achieves perfection. We get to see it through the modern medical miracle of ultrasound.
September 15, 2016
For every observantly funny line, there's a tired joke about long East Indian names; for every forward-looking musical cue, there's a strenuously unhip flashback ...
September 15, 2016
A third installment that attempts to recapture the charm of the first (2001) but, much like the second (2004), is only a sour facsimile.
September 15, 2016
From start to finish, this film seems strangely out of touch, never more so than when it tries to come across as enlightened.
