There’s a weird gag in ‘Bridget Jones 2’: two people sitting next each other on a plane to Thailand both get out ‘The Beach’ as holiday reading. Now, the book, published in 2000, is set in about 1997, so the joke makes sense. But the film is set in the now, so it doesn’t. And the best gag in the book, Bridge’s interview with Colin Firth, doesn’t appear for boringly ‘obvious’ reasons. Quite clearly the really clever thing would have been to have her interview Matthew McFadden. Despite expectations, though: much better than the first film.
