Benjamin Barry is an advertising executive and ladies' man who, to win a big campaign, bets that he can make a woman fall in love with him in 10 days. Andie Anderson covers the "How To" beat for "Composure" magazine and is assigned to write an article on "How to Lose a Guy in 10 days." They meet in a bar shortly after the bet is made.
..We left before the end and frankly couldn't give a tinkers cuss whose baby it was. My girlfriend and I decided to go home and read some old Beano comics from the 80's, as that would be fresher, funnier and braver than this new stinker. Why? (Okay, a deep breath now...)...Bridgette Jones Baby was:-
Twee; predictable; safe; lack-lustre and tired; unimaginative; uninspired; badly written; poorly directed; ( And poorly photographed for that matter-not the best cinematography I've ever seen)- cont.. Gauche and just absolutely, embarrassingly and bewilderingly bad. Just as bewildering was the laughter from the audience, mostly females, and of a type. By that I mean the type who laugh at ANYTHING that is slightly different, in action or intention, to what is a social norm' expectation. The Type who would wet themselves laughing when, in Last of the Summer Wine, Compo falls into the canal for the umpteenth time, but most people would see it coming and yawn, 'oh no. Not again' Avoid this film if you have a well developed sense of humour. But DO go, if you like people falling into mud quagmires and you laugh at middle class people saying 'C**k or F*** 3/10 (and that's generous)
