Based on Helen Fielding’s international best-seller Bridget Jones’s Diary, Renee Zellweger (Nurse Betty, Jerry Maguire) stars in the title role as the dynamic, outrageously original Bridget Jones.
At the start of the New Year, 32 year-old “singleton” Bridget decides it’s time to take control of her life and start keeping a diary. Now, the most provocative, erotic and hysterical book on her bedside table is the one she’s writing. With a taste for adventure, and an opinion on every subject – from her circle of “smug-married” friends, to men, exercise, food, sex, and everything in between – she’s turning the page on a whole new life.
Despite her efforts to get her act together, she finds herself caught between two men – a man who’s too good to be true, Daniel Cleaver, played by Hugh Grant (Four Weddings And A Funeral, Notting Hill), and a man who’s so wrong he could be right, Mark Darcy, played by Colin Firth (Shakespeare in Love, The English Patient). Meanwhile her new employers think she is nuts and her scatter-brained friends are absolutely no help what-so-ever.
As the hilarious dilemma unfolds, the irrepressible Bridget Jones finds herself the center of more attention than she could ever have wanted.
