This movie was hilarious! Kat and I laughed our butts off. It was a cute, funny and girlie movie.
It picks up were the last movie left off. Bridget (Rene Zellweger) is completely smitten with Mark Darcy (Colin Firth), the stuffy lawyer she landed in the last movie. She is still doing silly reporter stuff at the TV station. She gets assigned to work with Daniel Cleaver (Hugh Grant), who left his last position, and is now doing a television travel show. Something where he travels the world and shags all the women he can find. In the meantime, Bridget manages to embarrass herself and Mark at several events, so now that they are on rocky waters and she finds herself back in Daniel’s proximity and wacky things happen.
Now, taken at face-value–a funny, sometimes cheesy movie–it was great. If you actually look for it to have a good, solid story, well, that is where it falters. Mark never really proves his love to Bridget. Hugh Grant does make a good playboy and is quite charming. Renee Zellweger walks like she rode a horse way too much throughout this movie. I don’t know if that’s how Renee thinks that’s how a fat girl walks or if she has always walked that way.
If you liked the first one, I feel like you will love this one too.
