Synopsis: The continuing adventures of British publishing executive Bridget Jones as she enters her 40s.
Release Date: September 16, 2016
Thoughts: Though it (wisely) eschews the plot from Helen Fielding’s third Bridget book, it does feel a bit like the Bridget Jones train has been at the station for perhaps a tad too long. I guess I’ll choose to believe that it’s been so long since the disastrous 2004 sequel to 2001’s splendid Bridget Jones’s Diary audiences will likely be more than ready to spend some time with our titular character and her many romantic entanglements. Thankfully, returning stars Renee Zellweger and Colin Firth (Magic in the Moonlight) look positively charming and new addition Patrick Dempsey (X) should make a believable foe for Firth in the quest for Bridget’s affections.
