If you are not the target audience for Bridget Jones’s Baby, you may be sorely disappointed by a film that caters to people who might be curious about the paternity of the title character. However, there is a possibility that you could go for some of the dialogue in which, despite the movie’s not being a Judd Apatow medium, features a large number of the f-bomb. Generally, the film looks like a throwback to what used to be called “risqué,” and that was back in the 1950s.

Bridget Jones’s Baby is a sequel to Bridget Jones’s Diary released in 2001 based on Helen Fielding’s novel about a post-feminist, 30-something British woman who likes her alcohol, her tobacco, and seems not to mind an inability to deal with her weight. When Bridget (Renée Zellweger) visits her parents on Christmas, they try to set her up with Mark (Colin Firth). She falls for her boss, Daniel (Hugh Grant), who is not a one-woman man. Nevertheless Daniel and Mark, both wanting her, fight for her hand. In that picture’s sequel, Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason, Bridget settles in with Mark Darcy (Colin Firth) until Daniel (Hugh Grant) returns again, both fighting for her.

At the opening of the movie, Bridget is a single woman, hitting the bottle and dancing in her red flannel pajamas to Jump Around. She and Jack (Patrick Dempsey) meet cute when she falls into mud and is lifted out by Jack. One thing leads to another and Bridget is made pregnant, presumably by a handsome, rich American. When a newly-divorcing Daniel comes back into her life, intimately, the big question is: who is the father? Bridget’s doctor (Emma Thompson) lets all know that a male is growing within her but the question of paternity is resolved only later. Can you stand the tension?

Stale one-liners abound, particularly when Bridget is on the job as a TV producer, giving all the dialogue to the interviewer, which results in embarrassing conversations. All of this makes us wonder why she is not fired on the spot.
