    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.
  2. The bright spot, again, is Grant.
  3. 63
    Too bad Kidron, Fielding and company pay only cafe lip service to satire.
  4. Final verdict: Cast is excellent; movie is OK; men and women are soooo different.
  5. 50
    The director, Beeban Kidron, handles the proceedings with an episodic aimlessness on par with Bridget's.
  6. Takes the worst and most annoying elements of the first film and treats them like grand assets.
  7. Man, does this one make the first movie look like a masterpiece. What was Renée Zellweger thinking? It can't have been fun to put on all that weight, especially for a film as ghastly as this.

    Uttterly stupid! It was a real disappointment! ...so now, Bridget is the girl that everybody loves, hot, successful, smar guys and also intelligent, gorgeous, successful lesbians? Really? I mean....should I say much more? I have no intentions to watch it never again! To me is a real 0 and not because it is a sequel- I am always tolerant with sequels-but because the whole story is silly, ridiculously boring, and feels forced! Bridget is worse than ever! Unfortunatley they have destroyed all the attractiveness that Hugh Grant's character used to have, they made him little less than evil...and he was the best character of the first movie! If you can avoid watching it, but if you are curious watch it, and if you like it-I don't think you will- then good on you! Expand
