"I am different. I'm happy".
With her break-up with Mark Darcy (Colin Firth). It's a plot device used most frequently in the action and comedy genres and has become nearly a standard in superhero movies (to the point that Marvel follows a formula of including two distinct scenes, one during the credits and another after they have finished).
The star previously opened up about having children of her own after she was asked if she was "craving" to have a baby, telling Extra magazine: "I've never really thought like that about anything in my life, really". So is Bridget (and several others) mistaking one Asian man for another. We're used to men getting to continue to play viable romantic heroes as they get older, even as their female counterparts get relegated to dowdy-mom roles. Bridget Jones's Baby sounds like a cast-iron disaster, a sequel made way too late, and yet oddly enough, it isn't. She later manages to rekindle her feelings for Mark.
"I've just forgotten she comes from Texas", Firth says of Zellweger, who indeed buffed-up her Brit with a voice expert before the 12-year reunion, and remained in character on- and off-set during "Baby's' London production".
Although the premise of "Bridget Jones's Baby" makes the film seem as if it's all about the guy again, no "Bridget" movie has ever felt so much like Bridget's story.
Okay, so: It's clear early on that Bridget is not going to end up with Jack. "We poached a little bit from each of those ladies, so ladies thank you". But sunny Bridget is irrepressible, so within seconds she's lip-syncing "Jump Around" and jumping up and down on her bed. "Not interested!" she said. He has the awesome ability to communicate enormous joy and great sorrow with a single glance, even as his expression barely changes, as if he's trying to lock his feelings away behind a pained grimace and furrowed brow.
Chargers confirm ACL injury for Allen
The interior of the defensive line, once thought to be a strength, was repeatedly pushed back by the Chargers' offensive front. The Chiefs also surrendered two touchdowns on the ground to a running back (Melvin Gordon) who didn't score all last season.
However, she is persuaded to let her hair down and enjoy life; except this results in her becoming pregnant. (I think.) As the credits rolled, I had tears in my eyes and a grin on my face - oh, and as I left the theater, I bought Bridget Jones's Diary on iTunes!
Numbing herself with self-pity and chardonnay, Bridget gets dragged (actually, shanghaied) to an outdoor music festival, where she pretty literally stumbles into bed with Jack (Patrick Dempsey, yes, still McDreamy), who turns out to be a wealthy entrepreneur.
Forty-something and single again, she decides to focus on her job as a top news producer, and surround herself with friends old and new. After a spot of tongue-tied banter, they, too, dally, and before you know it, Bridget's preggers.
Of course Colin Firth is there as Mark Darcy, but we also have Jim Broadbent and Gemma Jones as Bridget's parents, plus the likes of Neil Pearson and Celia Imrie are back. His law friends? The Pussy Riot girls?
"I like the messages that Helen put in there with respect to what you go through at a certain point". Dempsey is no Hugh Grant, so the macho rivalry between Jack and Darcy is never quite as entertaining nor do they go to the extreme measures previously seen to out-do each other and win Bridget's approval.
