Briget Jones's Diary is a Bitish film from 2001, based on the novel from the same name written by Heles Fielding. In this film, the star, Briget Jones (Renée Zellweger), is a 30 year old woman who works in a publishing company in London and has realized that time is passing by and she is still single and worried about her weight. her family tries that she get's emocionally involved with a pretender, Mr. Darcy (Colin Firth), a barrister, son of a friend of her parents. From the very beggining Briget thinks that is a very arrogant and offensive person. and he thinks that Briget is some kind of dorky.
On New Year's Day she decides to leave the bad habit behind, lose weight and find her own Mr. Right.
Briget Jones and Daniel Cleaver (Hugh Grant), his boss with who she has been fantasizing for a long time, starts to send masseges to her, and having dates to know each other better... But the reality is that hi is a womanizer who doesn't want anything serious with her. At the same time she find out that Daniel and Mark Darcy have a history together and as result of it they hate each other.
When she finally realizes that Mark is a good person with good intentions and Daniel isn't as much as she needs, she will be on a real crossroads.
I really like this film because it's funny and dinamic and at the same time it's sweet and romantic. I think that Renée is extrordinary in her role and also love Hugh Grant, even playing the role of the bad guy.
