After "The End" appears, it's crossed out and "The Beginning" added.
The postscript footage that plays during the first half of the end credits is completely different in the UK and the US. As Robbie Williams sings "Have You Met Miss Jones?", the UK version has the credits run on black on the right half of the screen, while the left half shows comic interviews with various characters from the film about the new relationship between Bridget and Mark, as well as production stills from the film. In the US version, this is entirely replaced with a home movie of Mark Darcy's 8th birthday party, with the young Bridget running naked through his pool, as described earlier in the film. Each country's DVD includes the other country's ending as a deleted scene.
