Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason

Mark Darcy or Daniel Cleaver?

BJ is back! This time she's chubbier but nonetheless still as charming and adorable. This sequel picks up 6 weeks after she walk into the sunset with Mark Darcy (Colin Firth as the gentleman lawyer with a stiff upper lip). Will they be 'happily ever after'? Not really, with BJ insecurities and the flirtatious Daniel Cleaver (Hugh Grant) around the corner.
Frankly, eventhough Daniel is a bastard (he still was) - I prefer him to Darcy. "I miss you, giant panties!" (Daniel's actually grandma panties fetish? lol). Darcy on the other hand, well what I would term a good man (but folding his boxer neatly before going into bed?!). Perfect is so boring...
Overall, the movie was quite predictable. I practically expect BJ and Mark will end up together, which they did. If only this movie is as funny as the first movie. I would say this sequel is too romantic (and a bit sappy) for my taste. Do look out for the (sissy) fight scene between Mark and Daniel - one of the main reason I watched this movie for.
