Goofs

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 »

Oh Dear.....
29 May 2005 | by bassist_gurlSee all my reviews

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.
