Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason
Provided by Metacritic.com
If you liked "Love, Actually," you'll love this too, another small jewel in the crown of unabashedly commercial, cheerfully middlebrow, eminently exportable British fluff.
A triumph of performance, production, and adaptation over the empty-calorie dither of its source material.
Second time round, Bridget is still fat, funny and endearing -- but "all a bit, um, familiar, actually."
Improbably, the sequel only ups the ante on its predecessor's comedy-of-embarrassment quotient.
Die-hard fans are advised to wait for the video. Everyone else would be better off pretending that this movie doesn't exist. In the long run, you'll have a higher opinion of everyone involved.
Christian Science Monitor
The movie catches occasional fire when Bridget suddenly says what's really on her mind. The rest is silliness.
For the most part, Edge Of Reason is as saggy and well-worn as Bridget's big knickers.
This picture has an ugly habit of humiliating Bridget, which "Diary" did not.
The A.V. Club
When a sequel has to hit the reset button and take all its characters back to where they started, it probably didn't need to be made.
Has all the charm of a canceled CBS sitcom.
