    Synopsis:
    This hilarious romantic comedy is the story of Bridget Jones (Renee Zellweger), a 32 year old "singleton" who decides to take control of her life by keeping a diary. With a taste for adventure and an opinion on every subject -- from her circle of friends, to men, food, sex and everything in between -- she`s decided to turn the page on a whole new life. Despite her efforts to get her act together, she finds herself caught between two men -- Daniel Cleaver (Hugh Grant), a man who`s too good to be true, and Marc Darcy (Colin Firth), a man who`s so wrong for her, he could be just right!

    Your Opinions and Comments

    8 / 10
    A cute little movie about a woman in her early 30`s and her quest for love.
    The video transfer is good. There are no compression signs and the colors are well saturated.
    The DD 5.1 soundtrack is very good. The surrounds are mainly used for fill-in music. The soundtrack is very versatile and sounds just great.
    The menus are oddly animated with sound (it actually gets a bit annoying to navigate through them).
    The extras include a nice commentary by the director, a short behind the scenes look, 7 deleted scenes (don`t miss the last one), some production notes and 2 music videos.
    Bottom line - a very enjoyable movie indeed. Go for it.
