We find Bridget (Renee Zellweger) where we left her at the end of the first movie - blissful and besotted in the arms of gorgeous lawyer Mark Darcy (Colin Firth). Mark is accomplished, supportive and tolerant of (nearly) all of Bridget's tiny jealousies - why wouldn't every woman in London, including Mark's new long-legged, drop-dead, "I-always-say-the-right-thing-at-all-times" intern, want to lure him away from the plumpish, opinionated, sometimes inappropriate Bridget?
With the entry of the leggy threat, Bridget's pink clouds begin to turn grey as her attacks of self-doubt sorely test her relationship with Darcy. And just when it seems that the waters couldn't get any more choppy, Bridget's former boss, womanising heartthrob Daniel Cleaver (Grant), sails into view. Ms. Jones careens from embarrassing situation to romantic misunderstanding, but somehow still manages to muddle through. This long awaited sequel provides a look at the answer to the question, "What happens after the happy ending?"
What the critics are saying:
"It has become harder to see the attraction of Jones: the character has become something of a cartoon. It's testament to Zellweger's likeability and skill that the film is still enjoyable, but it lacks the element of surprise."- Nev Pierce, BBCi Film"Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason is a jolly movie and I smiled pretty much all the way through, but it doesn't shift into high with a solid thunk the way Bridget Jones' Diary (2001) did."- Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times"There's a flatness in the writing, a slapdash feel to the directing and an over-reliance on what worked the first time."- Moira MacDonald, Seattle Times
Just another typical Tom Cruise action film, with nothing to get too excited about. The film is loaded with action-film stereotypes and cheesy one-liners. Read More »

Hands of Stone is a bland, unlikable portrayal of a real-life boxer that struggles to hit the highs of Rocky IV let alone Raging Bull or the original Rocky. Mark this one down as “for boxing fanatics only”. Read More »
