Bridget Jones’s Baby
film / 8.00pm / Sky Cinema Premiere
after a 12-year break, Bridget’s back, still working in TV, though feeling the years now that the millennials are snapping at her heels. Her love life is also still in a mess, and after a couple of flings – one with new guy Patrick Dempsey, the other with old flame Colin Firth – she discovers she’s pregnant. But who’s the daddy? Renée Zellweger’s knack for comedy helps a good-natured film that goes for smiles rather then gut-busting laughs. But there are a few truly hilarious moments. Most of them emanating from the mouth of Emma Thompson, as Bridget’s plain-speaking doctor, though Sarah Solemani also cranks out a few as Bridget’s giddy mate, a newsreader with a sideline in filthy humour.
Sally Phillips returns as Bridget’s best mate Shazzer
