Bridget Jones's Baby Reviews
Bridget doesn't have an easy time having that child. It is a labour -- of love, still -- for the rest of us too.
Even though a lengthy two hours, the narrative skips along rather nicely. Fans of the series are sure to like it.
The continuity is sloppy in places and the editing is not as sharp as was needed. The direction though is pretty much comedy enriching. The lead actors do a good job but it’s really Emma Thompson as the Gynaec who is handling Bridget’s pregnancy, who mixes it up and raises the game to a few laughs more. This exercise may not be as fresh and robustly energising as the first salvo but it’s certainly better than the previous one.
What works best is that the film is consistently funny and entertaining given how slavishly the formula of the first film is repeated.
Overall, this romantic triangle will truly appeal to romantics.
After 12 years, Bridget Jones is back, and she's as brilliant as ever. It's such a fun and worthy sequel - laugh out loud funny and emotionally engaging throughout its runtime.
