Welcome to Melanie's Magical Christmas Movies! Every day in December, leading up to Christmas, Melanie will present one of her favorite Christmas movies complete with a trailer (and hopefully where you can watch it!)
Day 7 - Bridget Jones's Diary (2001)
Whilst this might not sit as a Christmas movie for everyone, considering one of the big things is an ugly Christmas sweater, I feel totally justified in including it.
Also, I will confess that Colin Firth in this movie is just the best. Add to that Bridget's amazing entourage of friends and it soon becomes clear why this is a must watch.
Perhaps it is because I am English, and so much of this is so relatable that marks it high up on my list, but whatever the reason I don't ever get tired of watching it.
Interest was sparked again when the recent Bridget Jones's Baby was released in 2016 with true fans knowing EXACTLY what should happen (even though there is apparently an awful alternative ending - which I will pretend doesn't - I am pretty good at that - same as I pretend there isn't a 2nd movie called Edge of Reason lol).
So if you want a British type movie to watch, I highly recommend this. Not one to watch with the kids around due to lots of adult language, and content, but definitely one to watch!
