Bridget Jones - The Edge of Reason
Based on author Helen Fielding's sequel to Bridget Jones's Diary, Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason picks up four weeks after the original film left off, with Bridget (Renée Zellweger) emotionally satisfied at long last with Mark Darcy (Colin Firth), her barrister boyfriend. Stability in Bridget's life, however, quickly becomes a contradiction in terms.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"A sequel that should have been buried six feet under."
‑ Rex Reed, New York Observer
"Unfortunately, Zellweger and Firth don't ignite many sparks, and Bridget's neuroses, rather than endearing her to us, can be off-putting."
‑ Robert Denerstein, Denver Rocky Mountain News
"Repeat of first film lacks charm. Not for kids."
‑ Nell Minow, Common Sense Media
"An over the top, ham-fisted replay of the original."
‑ Mark Pfeiffer, Reel Times: Reflections on Cinema
"Se você ouvir alguém dizendo que se identificou com Bridget Jones, meu conselho é: rompa a amizade. Você não vai querer perder seu tempo com alguém assim."
‑ Pablo Villaca, Cinema em Cena
"The humiliation of Bridget Jones is done so many times that it's not funny and it's not clever and it's not interesting."
‑ Richard Roeper, Ebert & Roeper
"So clumsy and crass that it makes you doubt the pleasure of the first movie."
‑ Charles Taylor, Salon.com
"There's a big empty space where the heart of this movie should be."
‑ Shirley Sealy, Film Journal International
"Director Beeban Kidron spends most of her time re-working the original movie's formulas."
‑ Forrest Hartman, Reno Gazette-Journal
"A little Bridget unfortunately goes a long way."
‑ Mark Dujsik, Mark Reviews Movies
"The talented cast give the flabby script some much-needed muscle."
‑ Eleanor Ringel Gillespie, Atlanta Journal-Constitution
"It's a pleasing enough romp, and if you're starved for romantic comedy (where have they all gone?) this will ease your hunger pangs."
‑ Teresa Wiltz, Washington Post
"Frankly, I feel like a lot of the intangible 'heart' of the first movie is replaced here with an ongoing conversation about sex."
‑ Lisa Ann Cockrel, Christianity Today
"Es casi imposible negar que se quedó muy por debajo de las expectativas."
‑ Alex Ramirez, Cinenganos
""An unnecessary sequel.""
‑ D.K. Holm, Movie Poop Shoot
