The life of a simple bookshop owner changes when he meets the most famous film star in the world.

Follows the lives of eight very different couples in dealing with their love lives in various loosely interrelated tales all set during a frantic month before Christmas in London, England. A man in a legal but hurtful business needs an escort for some social events, and hires a beautiful prostitute he meets When a woman's long-time friend reveals he's engaged, she realizes she loves him herself and sets out to get him, with only days before the wedding.
Spending the summer at a Catskills resort with her family, Frances "Baby" Houseman falls in love with the camp's dance instructor, Johnny Castle. Agent must go undercover in the Miss United States beauty pageant to prevent a group from bombing the event. A reporter is assigned to write a story about a woman who has left a string of fiances at the altar. Good girl Sandy and greaser Danny fell in love over the summer.
When they unexpectedly discover they're now in the same high school, will they be able to rekindle their romance? Benjamin Barry is an advertising executive and ladies' man who, to win a big campaign, bets that he can make a woman fall in love with him in 10 days. The story picks up four weeks after the first film, and already Bridget Jones is becoming uncomfortable in her relationship with Mark Darcy. Apart from discovering that he's a conservative voter, she has to deal with a new boss, strange contractor, and the worst vacation of her life.
Written by lcheala imdb. Even though he might not know why, Mark positively adores Bridget. Colin gets that and twinkles, melts and warms in all the right places. Hugh Grant really ought to be looking for a patent for that mojo he works so well. All of the original actors are back as Bridget's parents and her "dating war command" of pals and all have a natural, easy chemistry that works.
But, the negatives, they are a-plenty. Biggest problem here was the complete tone change. In the first film, we were on the ride with Bridget However, in this movie, it feels like someone stuck her up on a stage and spent 2 hours throwing pies and tomatoes at her cause it seemed real cool. She's not in on the joke here, she IS the joke. The character is downright frumpy in this movie with a perpetual case of bed head and clothes that look like castoffs from Mayberry.
She's a perpetual victim in this one, though, and even though Renee is still cute as a button and incredibly endearing, some of Bridget's spark is gone. What happens after the happy ending? Couple realizes that they are each real, flawed people. Bridget's keen on him but doesn't trust him.
She likes to be with him but is suspicious of his actions without any real cause. Now, we know she's an insecure character and feels like she's not classy enough to fit into his world.
And if the movie built from that, maybe we'd have a different story. But the obstacles they face are external. And Bridget's reactions almost make it seem like somehow, over the course of the last 'six weeks', she's regressed to a girl in the schoolyard stomping her feet when her boyfriend does something she doesn't like. Why include one fat joke when 3 or 4 plus a butt shot can fit into the scene?

Why spend most of the movie dropping hints about a reveal when you can beat the audience over the head with it in one of the final scenes? Why have Daniel make one joke about stealing Mark's wife when he can drop another one 30 minutes later? Most of the funny in this movie comes from certain 'episodes' as opposed to the dialogue. I loved the ski trip and Bridget's 'magic mushrooms' in Thailand. But, when the characters are actually talking to each other, they just aren't that funny. Most of the jokes are reruns from the first movie that feel stale. The naughty jokes are kicked up a notch but everyone in my packed theater, including me, either grimaced or sat stone-faced through most of them.
Note to filmmakers: dirty has to actually BE funny to be funny. This feels like a movie about a woman made by men who think wet clothes, girl-on-girl action and butt close-ups get it done. I read some interviews that said that Renee would only do a second film if it took care of Bridget and held up the standards of the first.
I almost wonder if someone slid her this script on the first day of shooting as a rewrite once she'd already signed on the dotted line. As much as I was looking forward to this film, I wish they'd never done it. He is struck by Bridget and, as she walks away, introduces himself as Jack. After attending an Ed Sheeran concert late at night, a drunk Bridget crawls into a yurt she thinks belongs to her and Miranda, but actually belongs to Jack. Despite the surprise, Jack invites her to stay - the two have a one-night stand and in the morning, finding the bed empty, Bridget makes her escape.
Jack returns having bought breakfast for both of them, and is disappointed to find that she has gone. After returning home, Bridget goes to the christening of Jude's youngest child, where she is the godmother and Mark has been asked to be the godfather at the last minute. Bridget and Mark awkwardly pose for the christening photos - as Bridget walks away with the baby, both turn back to look at each other, suggesting they may still harbour romantic feelings for each other.
After a few drinks help them overcome their initial awkwardness, while dancing Mark tells her that he and his wife are in the process of divorcing, and that Camilla was at Daniel's funeral not as his wife but just to offer him support. Realising they are still in love, Bridget and Mark spend the night together. When Mark reveals he is travelling for work early the next day, Bridget is reminded that during all their years together, he had always put work before their relationship and so leaves in the morning before he wakes up, leaving behind a note telling him that reconnecting with him is too painful and lonely.
A few weeks later, Bridget finds that she is gaining weight despite dieting and exercising. Her best friend Shazzer suggests she might be pregnant. With Miranda's help, Bridget confirms that she is in fact pregnant and decides that she wants to keep the baby despite being single, as it might be her last chance to have a child. After a visit to the clinic of Dr. Rawlings Emma Thompson , she realizes that it is impossible to work out the father based on dates and that she doesn't have a way of contacting the handsome stranger.
However, by chance Miranda spots him on an tv ad - he is in fact Jack Qwant, a billionaire inventor of a dating website.
Miranda conspires with Bridget to have Jack invited as a guest on their news show, so that their make-up artist colleague can take hair samples to enable a DNA test to be carried out to confirm or eliminate Jack as the father, and so that Miranda can probe him on his sexual and personal history. Their new boss is impressed by their idea of having Jack Qwant as a guest - at the taping, the make-up artist is able to nab samples of Jack's hair and nails.
Although Bridget tries to stay incognito, Jack catches a glimpse of her and recognizes her - he catches up with her after the show and confronts her on why she has humiliated him on his sexual history on live TV and on why she left without a word after their night together. She apologises and decides to tell him that she is pregnant and that he is the father, without mentioning Mark.
Initially taken aback at the responsibility of having a child with a stranger he's only had a one-night-stand with, Jack then decides to throw himself into the role of being a father and supporting Bridget and the baby. Unsure of her feelings for Jack and feeling that things are moving too quickly, Bridget decides to go forward and tell Mark the news as well. However, Mark is so thrilled at the prospect of having a child with Bridget that she cannot find the courage to tell him about Jack.
At the clinic, Dr. Rawlings is preparing to administer the DNA test - however, having seen the size of the needle, Bridge decides not to go ahead with the test while her child is still in the womb, as she is terrified by the small risk of miscarriage. She persuades Dr. Rawlings to go through the ante-natal appointments twice, once with Jack and another time with Mark, to keep up the pretense that each might be the father til the birth.
Bridget invites Jack to a work event, and is startled when Mark shows up as well. The two men immediately take a liking to each other, finding the other's professional accomplishments impressive. The three of them go out to dinner, where Bridget finally comes clean and tells them that she is unsure who the father is. Although disappointed, Jack takes the news well and tells Bridget that the child is the priority.
Mark, however, is upset and walks out.
At an ante-natal class, Jack arrives early and Bridget is gratified when Mark shows up as well. Jack and Mark are mistaken for a gay couple with Bridget as their surrogate, much to Mark's discomfort and Jack's amusement. Mark is also jealous at the easy rapport that Jack has developed with Bridget in a short time, and his warmth in taking care of her. Bridget experiences cramps and goes to the hospital, taking Jack with her as she is unable to reach Mark.
When at last Mark arrives, he is upset to see the two laughing together and embracing. Mark and Jack fight and Bridget sends them out of the room. Outside, Jack implies that he and Bridget had sex without condoms, making Mark less likely to be the father. Hurt and disappointed, he abruptly leaves once again and ignores Bridget's calls. Bridget continues to prepare for the birth, now with only Jack by her side. They have a heart-to-heart, during which he confesses that life for him is lonely and asks her to move in with him.
He asks Bridget if he is still in love with Mark, and she tells him that she has been in the past - he also asks her if she is in love with him, and she responds that she could learn to be. Bridget asks Jack if he would still want to move in together if Mark turned out to be the father of the baby - he tells her that in that case, he would need to re-evaluate their relationship as it would not feel right to him to be raising another man's child. Finally, he confesses to Bridget that the reason Mark has been absent is because Jack heavily implied that Mark was unlikely to be the father.
Upset, Bridget rushes to talk to Mark, but sees his wife arriving at his house, so she walks away. At nine months of pregnancy, Bridget quits her job rather than being fired by her new boss for her numerous gaffes and unprofessional mishaps. Unemployed, exhausted, and hungry, she goes out food-shopping but has her card eaten by a cashpoint machine and locks herself out of the bank lobby, leaving her keys and her food inside. When no one buzzes her up to her building, she slumps outside her apartment in the rain. Having had a change of heart, Mark suddenly arrives and breaks into the flat for her.
After Bridget asks him about seeing him with his wife at his flat, he informs her that he and his wife are still going through with their divorce, and that she was only at the flat to pick up the last of her things. Just as they are about to kiss, Bridget's waters break. When his phone rings for work, Mark throws it out the window, which although romantic, leaves them without a means to call help.
They enlist the help of a local restaurant waiter to get them to hospital, but a traffic jam forces them to walk instead.
