I watched this film for about the 5th time last night, and I forgot how absolutely amazing it actually is. It has the be the best RomCom in History! You opinions?

Good film, although I always felt that Renee Zellwegger was miscast in the role. Kate Winslet would have been perfect.
That said, it was enjoyable, but the book was better.

Yes, but Kate Winslet does not have that 'Outcast, loser' aura around her that made Renee's performance so believable. I think Renee was the perfect choice.

She would bring too much Hollywood into the film.

It is very enjoyable and cute; one of working Title's best.

Maybe not the best romantic comedy of all time (I agree that Annie Hall is better) but definitely one my favourites, it always puts me in a good mood.

I love this film So funny, so affectionate, and very British in it's eccentric way. Possibly the last great thing Richard Curtis was involved in...

I wonder what Snaze and Rawlinson think of Bridget Jones' Diary.

I noticed Hood_Man, I noticed. I was too emotional to respond. It was what I imagine a father must feel like when his son calls him 'dad' for the first time.

Agree on this and maybe on your point about Winslett. Interesting thing is they chose Renee at about the right moment in her career because if that had been now she would have been too much of a hollywood star too. Its a mute point now anyway as you just can't anyone else playing that part.

Everyone seemed to have given a thumbs up for Renee playing Bridget Jones', but the highlight for me has got to be Hugh Grant as Daniel - his entrance from the elevator was brilliant "R E S P E C T"

It's not the greatest rom-com in history, but there's definite laugh-out-loud moments and the material is great.
