    Peter Travers Rolling Stone

    Is it the clumsy script or the switch in directors -- Beeban Kidron in for Sharon Maguire -- that has sucked out the charm of the original and replaced it with crude pratfalls and enough shag gags to stuff the next three Austin Powers movies? show more

    Mick LaSalle San Francisco Chronicle

    A great role becomes an unenviable chore, in which a superb comic actress finds herself trying to sell a series of unfunny comic situations by mugging and pushing with all her might. It's an unflattering spectacle for all concerned. show more

    Claudia Puig USA Today

    The Bridget Jones characters are worth revisiting. It's just too bad the story that connects them in The Edge of Reason is less fresh and clever than its predecessor. show more

    Joe Morgenstern Wall Street Journal

    In case you were holding your breath, Renée Zellweger's Bridget Jones is still sweetly earnest, chronically overweight and swinging once again from lovestruck to lovelorn. show more

    Steven Rea Philadelphia Inquirer

    Cute, cloying and catastrophically predictable. show more

    Jack Mathews New York Daily News

    Takes the worst and most annoying elements of the first film and treats them like grand assets. show more

    Kirk Honeycutt The Hollywood Reporter

    Begins by repeating many gags from the previous film. Only now they feel lame and routine. show more

    Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times

    A jolly movie and I smiled pretty much all the way through, but it doesn't shift into high with a solid thunk the way "Bridget Jones' Diary" did. show more

    Allison Benedikt Chicago Tribune

    The trouble with Bridget redux is also simple: Thai jail. show more

    Lou Lumenick New York Post

    Doesn't have nearly enough Hugh Grant and is a little short on laughs, but it gets by on Renée Zellweger's charms. show more
