I was lucky enough to attend this movie for free at my college (special sneak preview). I found it to be absolutely hilarious, although occasionally predictable. Renée Zelweger does reasonably well with the English accent and some of the moments are priceless.

A word of caution, however: A male friend who attended the movie with me did not find it nearly as funny, and thought that much of the humor would be better understood by females.

So grab a bunch of friends and have a girls' night out with this romantic comedy, which is based on the novel by Helen Fielding.

Renee Zellweger plays another compelling woman in "Bridget Jones' Diary." Here we see Zellweger playing a 38 year-old single woman who started to keep a diary, detailing her battle against cigerattes, being overweight and mostly about the men in her life.

Zellweger plays her role very well. Like "Jerry McGuire" and "Nurse Betty," she has a knack for playing strong-willed women.

Great movie! Excellent acting! Very funny! Realistic plot! If you can handle
the language and styles of the "hip" generation, you gotta see this f**kn movie!

This movie was truely spectacular. First of all, Zellwegger and Grant had great chemistry (and Zellwegger nailed the accent, but we all know that from the previews). This movie was truely hilarious, and I didn't think it was predictable at all. This is not one to miss.

Note: This is probably the only male review you will get for this movie.

I havn't seen such a chick flick since "Benny and June". I was invited to go see a movie with some friends and was bored enough to see whatever they were going to. I didn't realize what I was getting into.

Guys, if you want to score some points, girls will love it. It has Hugh Grant and his accent in it... and Renee Zellweger complains about her love life. Why women enjoy this, I'll never know.

Don't get me wrong... I like romance movies, but this didn't even have much of a romance in it! I just can't enjoy a movie about one woman's lousy life. I think I'll go watch "Payback" again...
