Story by Claire Sullivan, Writer

If you are looking for a romantic comedy that will keep you laughing the entire time, then this is the movie for you.

Bridget Jones’s Baby is the latest and third installment in the British romantic comedy series based off of the books by Helen Fielding.

The Bridget Jones series starts off with Bridget Jones’s Diary in 2000, Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason in 2004 and, finally, Bridget Jones’s Baby in 2016.

Reneé Zellweger and Colin Firth reprise their roles as Bridget and Mark, and Patrick Dempsey plays Jack, a new American character thrown into the mix.

Jones becomes a top news producer as a single 40-year-old woman. She hooks up with two different guys at two different times and she finds out that she is pregnant, but does not know who the father is.

The storyline bounces back between Mark and Jack throughout the entire movie.

Bridget Jones’s Baby includes many issues that are relevant today – including same-sex couples, having a female leader and single parents.

Bridget’s mother is running for office, and she changes her campaign focus to single parents and same-sex couples to show that a female president should be accepting of all people.

Bridget Jones’s Baby is a good movie for all generations. It includes references for the younger crowd in mentioning “Gangnam Style.” Ed Sheeran also makes an appearance in the movie as a representative of the younger generation. Firth represents the older generation by not knowing what “Gangnam Style” is.

This movie will keep you laughing, smiling and engrossed the entire time. It has an equal amount of romance and comedy. When there is too much romance, the mood is lightened with comedy. The same goes for when the comedy is getting to be too much, the mood is lightened with romance.

The movie gives no clues about who the father is, which keeps the audience involved and intrigued.
