Bridget Jones’ Baby tells the story of Bridget’s focus on single life and her career is interrupted when she finds herself pregnant, but with one hitch…she can only be fifty percent sure of the identity of her baby’s father.
Being the third installment in the series, there is only so much left you can do with something like Bridget Jones, especially when only two of the leads have returned. It lacks the creativity and humour of especially the first film. Honestly, I’ve seen worse films and despite its heavy handed cliche’s and bleak story, it’s a harmlessly mindless film (with a nice cameo from Ed Sheeran) with a small side of entertainment, which is hardly something that you can say for many comedies or even romantic comedies these days – which are usually devoid of humour or genuine//actual romance (but not like its to say Bridget Jones’ Baby shows any sort of genuine//actual romance).
This film is something that you can enjoy the ride to and could be a secret favourite of some that reminds us of the slew of almost trashy and predicable romantic comedies of the 90s and early to mid 2000′s when these types of films were actually enjoyable.
Although the story is nothing surprising, I mean look at the title, it still has a very strong cast as it always did and I’m glad at the addition of Emma Thompson, who has always been a favourite of mine in both life and on screen, and even penning her own work in which I wish she would do more often.
Although an improvement on the previous addition to the series, it holds enough of its charm and charisma to provide an entertaining film that has captured so many people over the years. At least its good to have some British “romance” back on the screen along with Renee Zellweger who has been absent for too long.
