122 mins pre­vi­ous films – un­til a fi­nal piece of slap­stick in­volv­ing all three, which elicited some of the hearti­est belly laughs I’ve heard all year.

All of which is just a won­der­ful set up for the real star of the film – Emma Thomp­son (who co-wrote the script) as Brid­get’s fab­u­lously droll ob­ste­tri­cian. Thomp­son ab­so­lutely chews through scenes in a way that would tickle Alan Rick­man pink be­yond the grave.

Rosy, re­lat­able and en­ter­tain­ing enough for a re­watch with some take­aways and a bot­tle of wine. – Leonie Hayden, Flicks.co.nz
