Bridget Jones Baby (2016)

Renée Zellweger and a delightful cast, especially Emma Thompson, add some weight to the light simplistic plot of this movie. Dempsey and Firth contrast beautifully, and each has a different kind of chemistry with Zellweger. It’s funny and engaging and the lead character, it feels current because they’ve allowed it to grow. But there isn’t much that feels fresh in movie. The one exception is Emma Thompson. In spite of the mess, Zellweger remains winsome and charming as Bridget, enough so that one wishes the movie had done better by her. In short, Bridget Jones’s Baby is not a great Bridget Jones movie, but it is a Bridget Jones movie, and maybe that’s all people need.

Η Renée Zellweger και ένα απολαυστικό καστ, ειδικά η Emma Thompson, προσθέτουν λίγο βάρος στην απλοϊκή πλοκή αυτής της ταινίας. Οι Dempsey και Firth “συγκρούονται” όμορφα, και ο καθένας έχει ένα διαφορετικό είδος χημείας με την Zellweger. Ωστόσο η ταινία δεν έχει να προσφέρει κάτι καινούριο. Η μόνη εξαίρεση είναι η Emma Thompson. Παρά το χάος, η Zellweger παραμένει γοητευτική ως Bridget και εν ολίγοις, το μωρό της Μπρίτζετ Τζόουνς δεν είναι μια τέλεια ταινία Μπρίτζετ Τζόουνς, αλλά είναι μια ταινία Μπρίτζετ Τζόουνς, και ίσως αυτό είναι που το κοινό θέλει!

One thought on “Bridget Jones Baby (2016)

  1. I’m a little upset about this movie. I really enjoyed the book & I think by a certain actor not agreeing to come back & them wanting to keep Colin Firth it hurts the character growth that you see in the book. Granted I haven’t seen this yet & will still probably adore Bridget just as she is.
