Renee Zellweger, Hugh Grant and Colin Firth join together again for the romantic comedy BRIDGET JONES: THE EDGE OF REASON. In this follow-up to BRIDGET JONES'S DIARY, we find Bridget where we left her-blissful and besotted in the arms of georgeous lawyer Mark Darcy (Colin Firth). Mark is accomplished, supportive and tolerant of (nearly) all of Bridget's tiny jealousies-why wouldn't every women in London including Mark's new long-legged, drop-dead, "I-always-say-the-right-thing-at-all-times" intern, want to lure him away from the plumpish, opinionated, sometimes inappropriate Bridget?
With the entry of the leggy threat, Bridget's pink clouds begin to turn grey as her attacks of self-doubt sorely test her relationship with Darcy. And just when it seems that the waters couldn't get any more choppy, Bridget's former boss, womanizing heartthrob Daniel Cleaver (Hugh Grant), sails into view. Ms.Jones careens from embarrassing situation to romantic missunderstanding, still managing to muddle through this continuation of the trials and tribulations of the working woman who has become the symbolic heroine of 'singletons' everywhere.
BRIDGET JONES: THE EDGE OF REASON provides a hilarious and touching look at the answer to the question, "What happens after the happy ending?"
Based on author Helen Fielding's best-selling novel BRIDGET JONES: THE EDGE OF REASON, the film stars Renee Zellweger, Hugh Grant and Colin Firth all returning under the direction of Beeban Kidron from a screenplay written by Andrew Davies, Helen Fielding, Richard Curtis and Adam Brooks. It is produced by Working Title's Tim Bevan and Eric Fellner, and Jonathan Cavendish; it also stars Jim Broadbent, Gemma Jones, Jacinda Barrett, Shirley Henderson, Sally Phillips, James Callis, Jessica Stephenson, Celia Imrie and Neil Pearson. Debra Hayward and Liza Chasin serve as executive producers. The film was shot on location in London, Thailand and Austria.
