“ Because it was actually entertaining from the beginning to the end.
“ With two male protagonists, it gets kind of boring.
“ In addition, the jokes sometimes do get predictable and lost their punch for me (not the case for a lot of the audience).
“ the film is about as boring and unfunny as it can possibly get.
“ Waste of Time .
“ There's nothing really wrong with it - the cast is good and so is the acting, the script is engaging, the dialogue is fine (except for the constant cursing, of course).
“ As with previous Bridget Jones movies i have stoped watching it somewhere in the middle because it always seems to be so Long,and ,honestly kinda repetitive - Bridget seems to be real mess this time,getting pregnant because she used old condoms and didn't believe in expiry date - like this woman is like 40-50 ,the better option for the plot would have been if she began to think that she is in menopause and that she cant have children anymore or something like that - i don't want to bash it as much as it seems as i am doing because it is not THAT bad,its actually quite ---- OK continuation of the story ,with actors and actresses not looking out of place in their characters despite the time that has passed from the last movie,and also Renes face actually looked like her old face,i was afraid i wont be able to recognize her as lovely chubby,red faced Bridget because i saw some of her recent red carpet pictures .

“The story line is quite original in that it didn't feature the cliché, predictable plot of a good guy vs.
“ Certainly the packed cinema - filled with probably 90% (well oiled) women - certainly thought so, in what was a raucous and entertaining showing!
“ I went to see the movie with very low expectations as I've read reviews saying this is a bad sequel full of cliché etc. Well, first of all you are going to see a rom- com movie of a chick-lit book so I guess you already know where this is going.

“Bridgette Jones Baby was:-Twee; predictable; safe; lack-lustre and tired; unimaginative; uninspired; badly written; poorly directed; ( And poorly photographed for that matter-not the best cinematography I've ever seen)- cont.. Gauche and just absolutely, embarrassingly and bewilderingly bad.
“ Offensively boring: quit while you're behind .
“ The first one was good because it was relatable and funny but a bit boring and slow in some parts.
“Finally, the movie is too long.
“ Even though she has so much work done in her face (her smile is more like a grin) once you decide not to be distracted by that, it's an entertaining story.
“ Mark Darcy,Jade, etc.) I would highly recommend it to any "true" Bridget fan.
“)There's lots of cliché scenes and jokes, some recycled from previous films, the film is very predictable, and I found boring.
