It’s been a while since I’ve seen the Bridget Jones movies. I forgot the story, but it came back in the latest film.
Renee Zellweger’s character, Bridget Jones is celebrating her birthday alone, her friends are starting families and she feels like she won’t able to have a family of her own. She goes away for the weekend with a friend. She meets Patrick Dempsey and they sleep together. She doesn’t know who his is. She then runs into her old flame, Mark Darcy when they bump into each other at a sombre event. They sleep together even when Mark is now married and in the middle of a divorce.
After some time, Bridget learns that she’s pregnant, but she doesn’t know who the father is. McDreamy is more involved with taking of Bridget when Mark is there, but isn’t because he has a history of always putting work first. She knows she has to tell them that they are both potential fathers to her baby. Mark doesn’t seem too happy and excludes himself. McDreamy is hands on and asks Bridget about living together. Mark eventually comes around and tells her that she is his world.
I don’t want to give away too much. I thought I knew who the father was, but I was wrong. It’s a good rom-com for a girl’s night. You can’t go wrong with Colin Firth and Patrick Dempsey.
