Bridget Jones’s Baby (M)
Directed by Sharon Maguire Starring Renee Zellweger, Colin Firth, Patrick Dempsey
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
