Absolutely great! I loved the first and I love this one too! Colin Firth is.. sigh...okay I am totally crushing on him.. but love him and Rene in this movie, was afraid it could be a let down but it wasn't at all, and Hugh Grant is great as well.. he adds colour and that 'charismatic jerk factor' you just need to make the movie a total hit. Its rare that there are follow ups on rom-coms that already ended well... happily... This is a movie about what happens after the happy ending and its full of humour and delightful moments!

None of the links work...

ok... now I know this thing is stupid... I can't just simply post my movie ratings... I have to actually WRITE something... so here you go... :rolleyes:

First of all you have to know that part one is one of my top3 absolute fave movies. And I read the two novels. So a) i'm biased towards part 2 and b) my expectations for this sequel where really high and i was afraid that i would be disappointed. But I wasn't! I loved every single minute of "Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason" What makes it special is that, while in romantic comedies the plot line is about how boy meets girl and then get together at the end, here they are already in a relationship and so it's more about how that relationship evolves, it's about the high and lows.
And also, it is quite different from the novel. While normally I don't like it when they change things from page to screen, in this case I have to admit it is remarkably well done. They have managed to keep the spirit of the book, and to tone it down a little, because the novel is really quite extravagant and it would never have worked if they had adapted it literally. They did as good a job as for part one.
One change I was worried about is the inclusion of Daniel Cleaver, Hugh Grant's character. At first I thought it was only to get more women in the theatres, because of his good looks, but his part in the movie is rather important. Another character could have done it but the fact that we already know him saved a lot of exposition time.
Since I mentionned Hugh I also have to talk about Colin Firth. He is absolutely fabulous! He brings the character of Mark Darcy to life as nobody elso could possibly do it. Renee Zellweger is fantastic too and she definitely deserves another Oscar nomination for this one.
oww....2 much hw man....and i shudn't b on here!!! My sis went and saw bridget jones diary 2...and she said it was reli gud...:( humph i wanted2 c it!! it's cos she works in d odeon and she gets free tickets or free screenings!! She also saw the grudge last nite (i was asleep wen she came home) and also Johnny Depp's new film, finding nevaland!! GRRRRR....she also nicks sweeties from there as well!!!NOT FAIR
Keeping track of movies watched. Might add comments later
Renee Zellweger reprises her role as Bridget Jones, an aspiring television journalist whose odd antics prove embarrassing -- a segment on skydiving lands her face-first in a trough of pig poop. But even that can't dampen Bridget's soaring mood. The second coming of bloated Renee Zellweger begins six weeks into Bridget's relationship with Mark Darcy (Colin Firth), the square human rights lawyer who made hearts melt the first time around with the line, "I like you just as you are." Turns out, he doesn't. Bridget's bleeding heart and busting seams don't exactly play in stuffy Lawyerland or on an Austrian mini-break.

The Edge of Reason has its heart in the right place. It's easy to fall for Zellweger in the role of a sincere everywoman concerned about her wobbly parts. Sadly, Edge too often sways into the world of absurdity: Bridget inadvertently consumes magic mushrooms and ends up wandering in the ocean; she gets tossed into a Thai women's prison and soon has her inmates belting out Madonna tunes; and an unnecessary lesbian scenario leaves the audience bewildered.

In a lot of ways, Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason is like going to a karaoke bar with your friends and bawling out-of-tune yet enthusiastic renditions of the classics. Both are mostly powered by the sound of classic songs and the feel-good associations we already have with them; both are occasionally amusing and occasionally embarrassing; and neither is something you'd want anyone you respect to see you enjoying too much
Bridget Jones 2
Renee Zellweger, Colin Firth, Hugh Grant
Good.. Funny...Enjoyable... but no Bridget Jone's Diary... I really liked this movie but I think that it could have been better. It was just missing the charm of the first movie. I think I liked it. I am really indifferent. But the fact that I have no desire to see it again pretty much speaks for itself.
Movie Grade::fresh: C+

Kate Bechinsale, Scott Speedman
Good movie. Better then I espected. I think Scott is competely hot with the long hair. Never would have thought him to be British... but, he really is (not in the movie, in real life)... strange. Kate was a cool vampire. Didnt think she could pull that off. Oh thee well.
Movie Grade: :fresh: B-

Hugh Jackman, Anna Paquin, Patrick Stewart

Good, I guess. Liked Nightcrawler. Still pissed Rogue is so young. HATE JEAN GRAY... SO ANNOYING. On that note, the movie had amazing accuracy. I think it could have been a little less of a trailer for X3. I didnt really like the first but I really liked this one. So it improved. I think that Hugh Jackman is a kick ass Wolverine... please please please have a sexy Gambit in X3, he was my favorite!
Movie Grade: :fresh: C-

Looking Forward to....
Closer: Natalie Portman, Jude Law, Clive Owen, Julia Roberts
