To be honest, sequels aren't usually my thing. And although this sequel rings true to a certain extent, there is still some sort of inexplicable charm about Bridget Jones. As she fumbles through her love life, her job, and pretty much everything else, we see a real woman struggling with balancing her life, a fresh perspective unlike the typical Hollywood glamorisation of life.

What are critics saying?


Empire by

For the most part, Edge Of Reason is as saggy and well-worn as Bridget's big knickers.


Variety by Derek Elley

Second time round, Bridget is still fat, funny and endearing -- but "all a bit, um, familiar, actually."


L.A. Weekly by Ella Taylor

If you liked "Love, Actually," you'll love this too, another small jewel in the crown of unabashedly commercial, cheerfully middlebrow, eminently exportable British fluff.


ReelViews by James Berardinelli

Die-hard fans are advised to wait for the video. Everyone else would be better off pretending that this movie doesn't exist. In the long run, you'll have a higher opinion of everyone involved.


The A.V. Club by Keith Phipps

When a sequel has to hit the reset button and take all its characters back to where they started, it probably didn't need to be made.
