To have a bit of a soft spot for Bridget Jones...?

Just watching the film on TV now and it always makes me smile! ( absolutely loved the book and totally related to it). Now I know she's probably considered v anti feminist, but there's something about her that I find so endearing. Still... ( am still single so it's probably just that really)

What do other people think..?

Aw, didn't realise that was on telly! I love Bridget Jones. OK, I'm married so that probably puts me firmly in the 'smug married' category but I can so relate.
Obsessing with her weight, falling over on her arse at any inopportune moment... grin

I just adore the way Mark Darcy looks at her, so Colin Firth and some laughs make it a real comfort movie.

I just adore Colin Firth but also love Bridget too - don't care if she's out dated anti feminist bollocks, I love her!

I love the bit where she is getting drunk and singing to herself and crying. I have done that once or twice or 1000 times it makes me laugh every time.

Watching it now. Love Hugh Grant as Daniel Cleaver. My friend is a big Colin Firth fan - Cleaver rocks wench!

Where was the market she walked through? Discovered The Borough market recently (looked like it) and it is fantastic!

I loves me some Bridget Jones. I can't wait for the US release of the third book in the series.
