Rated: R (For language, sex references and some nudity)
And in her third outing poor Bridget has found herself in the most complicated of complicated situations: she’s pregnant. The only problem is she has no idea who the father is. It could either be her ex-husband Mr. Darcy (Hugh Grant) or American millionaire Jack Qwant (Patrick Dempsey). What would normally be a happy situation for her has now turned into one of stress and uncertainty. Somehow the movie never loses its sense of fun. Where most (for lack of a better term) ‘chick flicks’ fail is when it is time for the protagonist to come face to face with the consequences of their actions. Especially in the comedy genre, most studios don’t feel like women can handle situations that are awkward or uncomfortable, and tend to laugh off even the most perplexing of situations. In “Bridget Jones’s Baby” there is a highest level of hilarious awkwardness you could hope for.
Parents, there is some strong language and frank talk about sex (all in a very British tone). Recommended for ages 17 and up.
