We find Bridget where we left her--blissful and besotted in the arms Mark Darcy. Mark is accomplished, supportive and tolerant of (nearly) all of Bridget's tiny jealousies. But the entry of Mark's intern causes a leggy threat, Bridget's pink clouds begin to turn gray as her attacks of self-doubt sorely test her relationship with Darcy.

Berardinelli, Internet CriticFull Review Average The Edge of Reason has no such impressive pedigree. Whether the problem lies mainly with Helen Fielding's novel or with the translation to the screen (and, not having read The Edge of Reason, I don't have an opinion), the fact is that the second Bridget Jones movie is inferior. Die-hard fans are advised to wait for the video. Everyone else would be better off pretending that this movie doesn't exist. In the long run, you'll have a higher opinion of everyone involved.
Roger EbertFull Review Good Standing back from "Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason," I can see that the perfection of the first film has been replaced here by a series of comic episodes that could as easily be about anything else. The movie doesn't have the dire necessity of Bridget 1's quest for true love.

OPINION OVERVIEW The following is the original "What's Worth
Watching" write-up for this movie.
We collected 319 moviegoer opinions. This is certainly a movie of most interest to the ladies and THEY LOVED IT! With over 250 of the 319 opinions coming from the ladies and nearly all of them rating it very high this is certainly a movie I can HIGHLY RECOMMEND FOR THE LADIES.
As for the guys, is this a movie they can take their lady to see without being bored to death? Absolutely! Approximately three-quarters rated it "Very Good" or higher and almost all of the remaining quarter rated it "Good," which certainly isn't bad. So guys, take your lady to see "Bridget Jones." She will appreciate (always a good thing) you going to see a "chick flick" with her and you will enjoy it as well.
At long last Bridget Jones (RENÉE ZELLWEGER ) – 30-something,
self-doubting, self-analyzing, career-minded, calorie-counting London singleton
– has found romantic bliss. For six glorious weeks (71 ecstatic shags), 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 equally flummoxing 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 heart-throb 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.
