Bridget Jones's Diary - 6

A British romantic comedy about thirty-two year old Bridget, played by Renee Zellweger, and her search for the right guy. She starts a relationship with her boss, played by Hugh Grant, but soon falls for a man that she is suppose to hate, Mark Darcy, played well by Colin Firth. She soon learns that honesty really is the key to any relationship and chooses Mark. Her friends and parents are very funny side characters in the film. The movie straddles the tension between realistic sadness and outrageous humor. In the end she choose the right guy and lives happily ever after...well they did make a sequel, so she has a few gliches along the way. Overall the film is entertaining, funny, and more thoughtful than it lets on.
