Sharon Maguire's BRIDGET JONES'S DIARY was released in 2001 after phenomenal success from Helen Fielding's book, as if anyone needs telling, of the same name. The book is an immensely enjoyable read, a book that throws you head first into someone else's secret diary of a life you can't help but...

I personally think that Bridget Jones’ Diary is easily among the chick flicks ever. There have been quite a lot of mixed reviews on this film, but if you ask me, the cinematographic industry was in dire need of such a refreshing and completely refreshing performance as the one that Renée...

**This review was awarded as the best Ciao Comedy film review 2001** I hate hype to the point of madness. This film had more than it's fair share and this put me off seeing the movie at the cinema. Under duress from my beloved girlfriend, I finally caved in and stomped off to the video shop...

As the papers are so rightly calling it “the biggest and funniest film of the year” and I agree, to me its up there with the best of them such as my other two favourites Pretty Woman and Dirty Dancing. Bridget Jones is 32 years of age, single and is desperate to meet the man of her...

"Quite brilliant really" as Bridget would say. I have seen this movie 3 times now and laughed and cried each time...that has to say something for Sharon Maguire's brilliant direction of the blockbuster (because it is you know) "BRIDGET JONES' DIARY". And for those of you that love useless bits of...

ConsNothing Really

I watched this last week with my girlfriend who had already seen it three days before and loved it. I had read the book which I'd quite enjoyed and was sort of looking forward to the film although I dread book to film adaptations. Bridget Jones diary is based on a book that you've probably heard...

published 18/05/2001

ProIt's funny, for both sexes

ConsCan wear thin at times

Well, well, well its another British romantic comedy and its another book to film adaptation. And it’s actually a damn good one, which considering the mass amount of hype it has received is very pleasing indeed. Yes Bridget Jones's Diary is a success, and I don’t just mean financial...
