I have loved Bridget Jones ever since the first time I watched the movie with my mum. Ever since then, its become my go to film. Whenever I’m sad, having a girly night, having a night alone or just you know, having my time of the month, I grab my well used DVD and sink myself into Bridget’s funny and interesting world.
A love for the clumsy, unlucky and charming Bridget is something me and one of my best friends have in common. So you can imagine how excited we were when it was announced there was gong to be a third movie! For the past year and a half we have been constantly talking about it, and when the release date was announced the first person we knew we wanted to watch the film with was each other!
In fact, my friend (who lives in Birmingham) decided to come all the way to Liverpool for a day just to watch the movie with me, now that’s friendship!
First things first though we went for a good heart breakfast to full us up for the duration of the film. I researched this amazing sounding eatery online and just knew Tash would love it, its situated right opposite Liverpool Town Hall and is called Moose Coffee, it’s cute, intimate and warming all at the same time, the way a breakfast place should be!
I ordered the American Pancakes with Blueberries and Maple Syrup and Tash went for the French Toast with Bacon and Maple Syrup. My pancakes were absolutely huge and tasted amazing, so fluffy and perfect but they were so big I couldn’t finish them!
If you fancy an American or Canadian themed breakfast and are in the Liverpool/ Merseyside area then I highly recommend Moose, the staff are friendly, warm and the food is out of this world!
We got to the cinema a little earlier and noticed that they had set up a little mini pink carpet/photo booth area to celebrate the release of Bridget Jones’ Baby. Me and Tash obviously couldn’t resist a cheeky little photo booth session before the movie started!
The movie was amazing! Everything you could want in the Bridget Jones instalment. Once again, we were sucked into the chaotic love life of Bridget, of course this time we were introduced to some new faces we couldn’t help but fall in love with. Patrick Dempsey’s healthy and mindful Jack fitted easily into the BJ family as did Sarah Solemani who played the brilliant yet slightly tinder obsessed thirty something news reader Miranda.
The amazing Emma Thompson not only stars in the movie as the formidable and hilarious midwife but also helps the write the ingenious script. You can tell Emma helped write the script, in my opinion it’s perfect. The departure of Hugh Grant’s character Daniel Cleaver is dealt with in a hilarious manner (if I do say so myself) and Dempsey’s Jack becomes the new man in the love/baby triangle. Colin Firth is on point as the snobby and emotional constipated human rights lawyer, Mark Darcey and yes we still love him no matter what. If I’m honest, we root for Mark through it all. ‘Mark and Bridget 4 eva’ if 13 year old me would say….
The best jokes are delivered by Emma’s character if I’m honest but the slapstick comedy in this movie is just as funny, in particular the scene where Mark and Jack carry Bridget through a revolving door, I literally had tears of laughter running down my face.
All in all, the film is perfect, a fantastic ending for a much loved character. I’m not going to spoil the ending for anyone who wants to go see the film. All I will say is, it’s a heartfelt romantic comedy and brilliant for a girly date with your mates.
