About Bridget Jones’s baby
Bridget Jones is 43 and celebrating her birthday with her best friend at a music festival where she meets Jack. Jack is a rich and famous American and they spend the night together. A couple of days later she spends the night with Mr Darcy. Mark Darcy and Bridget have a history together. But Mark got married and now he is trying to get a divorce. Probably because of Bridget. Bridget is gaining weight and she finds out that she is pregnant. However, she does not know who the dad is.
I forgot that I still wanted to watch this movie when it came out a couple of years ago. I am a big fan of the Bridget Jones’s movies. They are funny and maybe even a little bit relatable. Even though Bridget is older than I am.
Jack confessed he does not see himself as a dad in a live interview. But when he realized that he is maybe the dad, he changes. There is also a lot of rivalry between the guys. Jack was my favourite until he said that if the baby is not his, he does not want to live together with Bridget. So apparently he was not in love with her at all. He just liked her and wanted to help her.
Mr Darcy however still loves Bridget. I am not going to say who the dad is, but I kind of expected it. It was basically a happy ending for everyone. Even for the guy who wasn’t the dad eventually.
There was one awkward scene though: the moments when Bridget is in labour and she has to go to the hospital. That was so weird. Why didn’t they call an ambulance?
