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.
