At long last Bridget Jones (Renée Zellweger
) -- a 30-something, self-doubting, self-analyzing, career-minded, calorie-counting London singleton -- has found romantic bliss. For six glorious weeks, she has been the girlfriend of the exquisitely flawless human rights lawyer Mark Darcy (Colin Firth
) and nothing could be better. Or -- could it? Despite Darcy's apparent devotion, Bridget still finds herself asking questions about life, love and the proper way to put away underwear. Having finally found her man, Bridget is faced with the challenge of keeping him. She can't help but wonder: what exactly is it that comes after the happily ever after?
And just as she's starting to figure it all out, enter the competition: Darcy's drop-dead, legs-up-to-there, never-says-the-wrong-thing new colleague. Suddenly jealousy, uncertainty and temptation -- in the form of Bridget's former boss and womanizing heartthrob Daniel Cleaver (Hugh Grant) -- threaten to upend Bridget's dream in a comic maze of bad advice, silly mix-ups and total disasters that could only happen to her.
