Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason
Source: Catholic News Service
Retread sequel to 2001's "Bridget Jones' Diary," which finds the plump, romantically challenged Brit once again navigating a minefield of jealousies and insecurities, while waffling between sincere affection for her dashing but strait-laced lawyer boyfriend (Colin Firth) and the temptation of her caddish ex-boss and former lover (Hugh Grant). It may be a new diary entry for Bridget but, as directed by Beeban Kidron, the story pretty much feels recycled from the first go-round, though Zellweger, Firth and Grant are at the top of their game. Several implied sexual encounters, a lesbian subplot, as well as an instance of rough language and recurring crude sexual language and humor. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is L -- limited adult audience, films whose problematic content many adults would find troubling. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is R -- restricted.
