Last night I got to see Bridget Jones's Diary and I must say this is probably been the funniest movie so far for me in a very long time. I never got to read the novel on which it was based, so I can only base my impressions on the movie itself.
I must confess to being something of a Renée Zellweger fan, although in this movie she tries her best to look as dowdy as possible. She seemed to me to be the exact opposite of Amy McBeal, she drinks too much, smokes too much, eats too much, swears too much. About the only they have in common is that they are single women in their 30's looking for that ever elusive Mr. Right.
The dry British humour might not appeal to everyone but I found that it tickled my funnybone. (No not that bone!) Some scenes standout, like Bridget Jones's atrocious public speeches, and when she dresses up as a hooker for a tarts and vicar party. The movie is well made and has an excellent pop soundtrack. Funny stuff indeed.
