Bridget Jones’ Baby is the third movie in the tale of the eternal singleton and I haven’t seen either of the first two films because they look like chick flicks, and when you ain’t got a chick, you don’t have to watch those flicks…
This time round Renée Zellweger is back with a new baby and a new face… well, as British publishing executive Bridget Jones, she’s up the duff, but who’s the daddy? Is it her ex, Mark Darcy (Colin Firth) or her new beau, Jack Qwant (Patrick Dempsey, aka McDreamy from Grey’s Anatomy)?
The film is directed by Sharon Maguire who brought us 2001’s original Bridget Jones’ Diary, but not 2004’s sequel, Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason, which was from the hand of Beeban Kidron, best known for the 1990 TV series, Oranges Are Not the Only Fruit; and the cast includes Jim Broadbent, Celia Imrie, Sally Phillips, Enzo Cilenti, Gemma Jones and, for some reason, Ed Sheeran.
No doubt, the duelling between Colin Firth and Patrick Dempsey will have single women pissing in their knickers in excitement…
Bridget Jones’ Baby is due (ho, ho, ho) on September 16th in both the UK and US.
Oh, and the official title is Bridget Jones’s Baby, but in my book, that’s one “s” too many. So it should just be Bridget Jones’ Baby.
