We kick off December with the 2001 film Bridget Jones’ Diary, because, what better way to start the holiday romantic comedy season than with a fun-loving, kind of sloppy, hopeless romantic female icon like Bridget Jones? It’s been awhile since the phenomenon of the book-turned-major film starring Renee Zellwegger, Colin Firth and Hugh Grant was the talk of the town, so we reflect on the big questions: Is Mark Darcy delightfully frumpy, or just super boring? Why do British romantic comedies always try to pretend London is snowy at Christmas? Are Bridget’s friends terrible people? Is Bridget’s staple of a ‘real’ woman still relevant today? We’re gonna ponder it all over a couple bottles of wine. Jones-style.
