Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason

This is one of those rare movies where the sequel is better than the original. Bridget Jones diary was trying to give Ms.Jones a foothold in movie history, once the job was accomplished it goes all out hilarious with The Edge of Reason.

Rene Zellweiger deserves an Oscar, why should Oscar always be given to serious roles? She lives the part and has risked putting on weight for playing the character of Ms Jones, which I suspect a lot of Hollywood actresses will not do, not for any amount of money. The movie is a laugh riot from start to finish - not the smart-alecky American humor but the self depreciating British kind. Good clean fun.
