Movie PictureWe're giving away copies of Renée Zellweger's beloved comedy hit, Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason!
Renée Zellweger is back as everyone’s favorite witty heroine in Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason. Not that Bridget’s counting, but it’s been six wonderful weeks, four fabulous days, and seven precious hours with one flawless boyfriend, Mark Darcy (Colin Firth). But when mischievous and devilishly charming Daniel Cleaver (Hugh Grant) arrives on the scene claiming to be a reformed man, can Bridget find a way to make true love last forever? It’s the “absolutely hilarious” (Jim Ferguson, ABC-TV) romantic comedy that proves there’s nothing like love to send you over the edge.Read More
Movie Picture Bridget is back! And in celebration of this highly anticipated event we're giving away t-shirts from the film!
And just as she’s starting to figure it all out, enter the competition: Darcy’s drop-dead, legs-up-to-there, never-says-the-wrong-thing new colleague. Suddenly jealousy, uncertainty and temptation -- in the form of Bridget’s former boss and womanizing heart-throb Daniel Cleaver (HUGH GRANT) -- threaten to upend Bridget’s dream in a comic maze of bad advice, silly mix-ups and total disasters that could only happen to her.Read More
Q: How long did it take to shoot the fight scene with Colin Firth, as opposed to your fight scene in the first movie?
HG: It was one day about this time last year, and it was the same approach as the first one, which was just to make sure that it was as crap as we wanted it to be. The key is to stop the stunt coordinator from coming in to make it look like a film fight. We just wanted it to be two pathetic Englishmen scared of each other, throwing their handbags at each other basically.Read More
Q: How are you?
RZ: I'm fine. Now, I have this conversation. We did the Shark Tale stuff, what, was it about a month and a half ago now? About a month ago? It was so funny. Everyone said, "So, what's the difference now as compared to 10, 11 years ago when you kinda started doing this?" And I said, "Well, it's friends because you start to recognize people and you start to look for people." Even the girls from Japan. It's nice. Anyway, good morning.Read More
Q: Does Darcy have a character arc? If not, what was the challenge of bringing something unique to Darcy?
CF: I don't know if there's an arc. The Darcy thing's been going on for so long for me. It's beginning to feel like an arc that dates back to 1994. This felt like another episode in this ongoing story of some guy's life in one version or another. I suppose that if there's a shape to what he goes through, in some ways it would be the path from the film three years ago. What happens when they walk off into the sunset? What happens to happily ever after? You see something of their -- the bliss of their relationship, which I think is one of the hardest things that you can seek to portray in any sort of genre or comedy. You see the irritations and you see the patterns repeat themselves. You see the things that annoyed each of them about each other when they first met actually come to haunt them. You see them separate, and then, you actually see a pattern that's actually one we've seen before. She suspects him of being, well, she finds him standoffish. She finds him arrogant, rigid and all the things that she didn't like when she first met him all come back. And all the good deeds he's doing are hidden away. He doesn't demonstrate any of them. Daniel Cleaver comes back on the scene. So you've basically got it very familiar.Read More
