Bridget Jones's Diary 2001 15

93 mins USA Director. Paul Knight

With its reindeer jumpers and big knickers, Bridget Jones’s Diary still has the best gags on the rom-com circuit and remains the ultimate expression of female dating ineptitude (with a happy ending, obviously).

Renee Zellweger is the title character, a thirty-something singleton desperate for Mr. Right but always attracted to Master Wrong. In his role as the former of those choices, Colin Firth extends his persona from the 1995 TV adaptation of Pride and Prejudice, Mark Darcy, while Hugh Grant plays against type as the caddish publisher Daniel Cleaver.

In the face of unnecessary dismay over her casting in the titular Londoner, Texan Renee Zellweger overcome preconceptions to deliver a perfect performance and a (near) faultless accent.
