Every year a lot of great films are released at my local Cineworld cinema, that I cannot wait to watch. This year there have already been many including Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, X-Men Apocalypse, Warcraft and Me Before You, to name a few. Then there's the release of Finding Dory, BFG and The Suicide Squad coming up. But, one of this years main events for me has got to be Bridget Jones's Baby.
After twelve whole years she's back, with bigger knickers and just as comical as ever, as Helen Fielding’s comedy Bridget Jones Baby hits Cineworld this September.
Following on from Edge of Reason (2004), after her split from the charming Mark Darcy (Colin Firth), Bridget (Renee Zellweger), now in her forties, meets handsome American - Jack (Patrick Dempsey). After unexpectedly sleeping with both men, Bridget finds herself in a bit of a dilemma - she's expecting, but she’s only fifty percent sure of her baby's daddy! Confident and clumsy, with two gorgeous men fighting for her attention, we step back into the life of Bridget Jones, as she swaps her big knickers for maternity pants.
We've seen more than our fair share of hilarious scenes in Bridget Jones Diary and Bridget Jones: Edge of Reason; with slapping wars between Hugh Grant and Colin Firth, embarrassing apple-catcher moments and general blonde clumsiness. As the final chapter comes to an end in the third film, we have many more hilarious scenes to look forward to; including that special moment when Bridget goes for her first scan, with both of the potential father's.
Just as we think that Bridget Jones could not amuse us anymore, here she is again with all of her past singleton problems, in and out of love, with an even bigger challenge ahead. I have no doubt that the final instalment will be just as fun and witty as the rest, as we find out how Bridget's story continues. Will it end in tears with a tub of ice-cream, or will Bridget finally get her happily ever after? I guess we will find out in September, but until then here are a few fun quotes from Bridget Jones Diary.
“It is a truth universally acknowledged that when one part of your life starts going okay, another falls spectacularly to pieces.”
“Oh God. Why can't married people understand that this is no longer a polite question to ask? We wouldn't rush up to them and roar, "How's your marriage going? Still have sex?”
“I realize it has become too easy to find a diet to fit in with whatever you happen to feel like eating and that diets are not there to be picked and mixed but picked and stuck to, which is exactly what I shall begin to do once I've eaten this chocolate croissant.”
