Consensus: Edge of Reason is a predictable continuation to the Bridget Jones story, with too much slapstick and silliness.

A sequel that should have been buried six feet under.

Unfortunately, Zellweger and Firth don't ignite many sparks, and Bridget's neuroses, rather than endearing her to us, can be off-putting.

Repeat of first film lacks charm. Not for kids.

Charles Taylor

So clumsy and crass that it makes you doubt the pleasure of the first movie.

There's a big empty space where the heart of this movie should be.

The talented cast give the flabby script some much-needed muscle.

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.

A comedy that is an exact retread of the original. I don't like movies that backtrack. Here we have Bridget Jones suddenly doubting Darcy's fidelity.… More

Funnily enough, I have marked this up half a star from my original rating. I remembered this as being a lot worse than it actually was. Oh, it had it's… More

Warning spoilers! Second part, she gets her man, ends up in a Thai prison, loses her man, gets him back again. Fave scene - fighting in the fountain. Hilarious!… More

I never really believed I would like a chick flick, but it felt like I was jumping into a Marian Keyes or a Madeleine Wickham, and I do love chick lit. Now I… More
