Bridget Jones's Diary
Out Now On-Demand
All women keep score... only the great ones put it in writing.
Renée Zellweger picked up a 2002 Best Actress Oscar nomination for her performance as Bridget Jones in this romantic comedy hit, based on the Helen Fielding book. Bridget is caught in a Jane Austen-esque love triangle between her debonair boss (Hugh Grant) and friend of the family, Mark Darcy (Colin Firth).
Bridget is a busy journalist and singleton lost amid a sea of smug-marrieds in London. After vowing to abandon her many vices, Bridget turns over a new page by channelling her opinions and insecurities in a journal that becomes a chronicle of her misadventures. Soon, Bridget finds herself stuck in the sights of not one, but two men.
