Movie Review: ‘Bridget Jones’ Baby’
Cons: “Bridget Jones’ Baby” is the third installment in the Bridget Jones movie series and definitely should be the last. Even though the writers throw a baby into the mix, every franchise should know when to stop. This film is basically the same as the first two. Bridget must choose between two guys; the only difference is she’s pregnant from one of them. The movie struggles to stray away from the damsel being rescued by the man swooping in. The character of Bridget Jones is a clumsy woman with raunchy humor. While some people might find her funny, the jokes are recycled versions from the previous films. The film does a failed attempt at continuing the storyline in a new and enlightened way. Not to mention she picks the wrong guy.
Pros: “Bridget Jones’ Baby” was a hilarious, fun-filled movie. The movie follows the sequence of events of the last two movies while also being its own individual movie. There were numerous laugh-out-loud moments, which is to be expected from a Bridget Jones movie. I was never bored and was satisfied when the movie ended. I thought it was a perfect end to a trilogy of movies. I was engrossed in the movie the entire time. The movie was entertaining and something I would love to watch again.
