An image from Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason

Hollywood's biggest star-of-the-moment, Renée Zellweger, returns as everyone's favourite singleton, Bridget Jones, for more slapstick mayhem. The Edge of Reason picks up four weeks after the first film, and already Bridget's petty jealousies are making her feel uncomfortable in her relationship with Mark Darcy (Colin Firth). As well as being suspicious of Mark's long-legged intern, matters are worsened by the arrival of the womanising Daniel Cleaver (Hugh Grant) at the TV company for which Bridget currently reports. Combine this with some magic mushrooms, a stint in a Thai prison and some skiing antics and you have the makings of one of this year's funniest films.

Renée Zellweger, who has become an Academy Award winner since the first of the Bridget films, is even more adorable (and plump!) as one of Britain's best loved fictional characters of recent times. Colin Firth has a larger role in the sequel, which enables us to identify with him more than previously. Throw in the other outstanding supporting actors including Hugh Grant, Gemma Jones, Jim Broadbent and Celia Imrie and this movie is well on its way to becoming a classic.

The Edge of Reason continues where Bridget Jones's Diary left off and, in my opinion, exceeds all the hype and expectation. Anybody who fails to find this film amusing should seriously consider the possibility that they had a sense-of-humour transplant during the night.
