Just six weeks (and 71 excellent shags) after her romance with Mark Darcy (Colin Firth) is sealed with a kiss, and already Bridget Jones (Renée Zellweger) is becoming uncomfortable in her relationship with him. Is he really mad about her, or is his leggy new assistant Rebecca (Jacinda Barrett) about to snare this human rights lawyer of hers? Things don\'t improve when her new boss in TV land sends her to Thailand with that rogue womaniser, Daniel Cleaver (Hugh Grant), who tries to seduce her. And on her way home, she is arrested and thrown into a Bangkok jail for carrying cocaine, hidden in a gift she packed for a friend. Can she survive this spate of bad luck, but more importantly, can she find true love or has Mark Darcy darted for good?

Nowhere near as entertaining as the first.

Bridget Jones: The Edge Of Reason picks up six weeks after the first film. Her new boyfriend is the snobbish lawyer, Mark Darcy (Colin Firth), but she's just not happy. Jealous of Darcy's leggy, gorgeous colleague and tempted by her flirtatious former boss, Daniel Cleaver (played by Hugh Grant), disasters are bound to happen. She can't ski, she can't skydive, doesn't fit in with Darcy's lifestyle and ends up in a heck of a lot strife.

Bridget Jones: The Edge Of Reason is nowhere near as entertaining as the first film. Renee Zellweger's whiny voice serves up a constant barrage of self-deprecating thoughts, narrating us through Bridget's exasperating mishaps. It's not all without humour. Hugh Grant plays a perfect bastard, and there's a very funny tussle between him and Firth towards the end of the film. But even with a couple of light moments, save your money and borrow the book from the library.
