Bridget Jones's Baby is directed by Sharon Maguire and stars Renée Zellweger, Colin Firth and Patrick Dempsy and is the third instalment of the Bridget Jones series. This time we find a maturing Bridget focusing on her single life and her career, until she finds out she is pregnant with a 50% chance that the father is one Mark Darcy.
Bridget Jones's Baby is the perfect ending to a perfect film series. 12 years after The Edge of Reason it is obvious that Bridget indeed still has it. Bridget Jones's Baby is like a complete upgrade to the the humour in the first film - it was more romantic and all round even funnier. Almost every scene made the audience laugh out loud there were very rare occasions where not one person wasn't chuckling into their popcorn. There is never a dull moment, each joke hits the mark every time, the flow of the script was constant, it had great comedic timing and was very cleverly put together. There were so many character arc's throughout, Zellweger is fabulous as a third time Bridget, Dempsy suave as the charming american who knows how to properly treat a lady, and Mark Darcy the usual sexy, smart, international man of mystery. Unarguably the best cameo amongst some good support was Emma Thompson as Doctor Rawlings, having great comedic timing, so laid back and sarcastic it was hilarious - one particular line having the audience almost wetting themselves. Another thing that I thought was very apparent was that the sound track was really good! There were so many song that made everyone want to join in, it was like they were going that extra effort and every little detail was polished off very nicely. The most admirable thing about Bridget Jones's Baby is the charm, it was so romantic, the way they tackled the whole 'doesn't know the father' concept was amazing. Bridget was far from being a loose woman, and the bedroom scenes were tastefully handled, not at all rude and vulgar but just charmingly romantic. This is one of the main reason's that Bridget Jones's Baby could possibly be the best in the series.
The only problem with the film is that there isn't one. After 12 years Sharon Maguire is still able to make a great Bridget Jones film, making you feel like you are catching up with old friends you haven't seen for a while. For being so romantic and witty and for showing us that age really just a number.
I'm going to give Bridget Jones's Baby:
