28 Days Of Sequels Day 16 - Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason (aka Bridget Jones 2)
Welcome to February's 28 Days Of Sequels! Every day throughout February one of our VIPers (Dave, Jenn, Or Melanie) with occasional comments from the others will present a movie sequel complete with a trailer!
The big difference with this list is they aren't all winners that we loved. Some were disappointments and some just trainwrecks. Hollywood is short on original ideas so when one hits big, they milk it for all its worth and squeeze it dry. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't.
Day 16 - Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason (aka Bridget Jones 2) (Mel)
This is the Bridget Jones movie that generally I pretend doesn't exist, but when Dave said "including bad sequels" I knew I had to add it. If I watch them I watch the first (which I love), and the third (which I also love), and you can totally ignore the trainwreck also known as The Edge Of Reason. This is the perfect example of trying to use the same formula to recreate gold, and creating something sludgy and awful instead. They started with an idea that was rubbish, and created a movie that was the same.
Dave - I think my ex made me watch this with her. That's pretty much all you need to know about my take on this one.
