In her third stint as He­len Field­ing’s ir­re­press­ible Brid­get Jones, Renée Zell­weger proves as funny and en­dear­ing as ever. This time, poor Brid­get has a new predica­ment: preg­nancy. And she doesn’t know who the daddy is. The prospec­tive father is ei­ther Patrick Dempsey’s rich Amer­i­can, fol­low­ing a fling at a mu­sic fes­ti­val, or Colin Firth, cour­tesy of the briefest of re­bounds a few days later. The ri­valry be­tween the smooth Yank and ill-at-ease English­man pro­duces the odd snig­ger, while Emma Thomp­son pro­vides her share of gig­gles as Brid­get’s droll gy­nae­col­o­gist. But it’s Zell­weger who de­liv­ers the film’s hearti­est, most joy­fully good­na­tured guf­faws. Dir: Sharon Maguire 2016, 15, 130min

Get­ting ready: Zell­weger
