Ian Douglas: The film has received rave reviews overseas, as well as box-office success. The local distributors are expecting the same here, which is why there are only two films opening this week. Yes, it is very funny in parts, although it does drag at times. I think it may appeal to all the ''normal'' people out there, in similar situations, and encourage them in finding love and happiness. Violet is reading the book and says it is even funnier than the movie.
Colleen van Rooyen (39): I was very disappointed, as can be expected when you read the book first, most of the time. I read both Bridget Jones and the Edge of Reason - the no. 1 problem with the movie is that Bridget's friends' characters are never really developed, they merely make a few short appearances. The movie left me with a feeling of having watched a number of short sitcoms strung together. Nothing wrong with the casting of Colin Firth, Renee Zellweger and Hugh Grant, but they could have used better direction.
Craig Nicholson (24): The movie was humourous and kept me interested.
Rob Fisher (46): This movie was so hyped and once again I was disappointed by a much hyped and promoted movie!
