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. Andie Anderson covers the "How To" beat for "Composure" magazine and is assigned to write an article on "How to Lose a Guy in 10 days." They meet in a bar shortly after the bet is made.
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
Janey Osbourne is played in this film by Lucy Robinson, who, as Louisa Hurst, one of Charles Bingley's sisters, co-starred with Colin Firth (as Fitzwilliam Darcy) in the 1995 version of Pride and Prejudice, based on the book of the same name by Jane Austen. The Bridget Jones books and films are modernized versions of the same book by Austen. See more »
During the skydiving scene when Bridget is under canopy she is seen holding a Metal D Handle in her right hand. Metal D handles are only used for the reserve parachute, the reserve D handle is still clearly in place on her left webbing. The parachute deployed is clearly a main parachute deployed using a BOC hand deploy pilot chute - not a rip cord. See more »

You know what, mate? If you are so obsessed with Bridget Jones, why don't you just marry her?

Cause then she'd definitely shag me.

I saw the first Bridget Jones movie and thought it was around average. My Mum loved it, and when the DVD for Bridget Jones:The Edge Of Reason came out on DVD, she went i bought it right away. So, without much hope or agenda, I decided to watch it.
This film is absolutely AWFUL. The story bares no resemblance to the book, and the story was unbelievable. Poor acting all around. Why didn't they get the director from the first film back? She was marginally better.
Do yourself a favor, and just read the book, which is actually witty and well-written.
