Bridget Jones’s Diary , 2001
Director: Sharon Maguire
While Renée Zellweger tries to play the strong and independent woman who ‘don’t need no man’, she is anything but. Every woman desires to be fought over by two men, especially if those men are the (typically typecast) charming but mischievous Hugh Grant and the ultimate British gentleman Colin Firth.
This is a film where the girl chooses the bad guy and yet, somehow, the good guy sticks around in the sidelines until the girl realises that she is a fool. Windows are smashed, punches are thrown and blue soup is consumed all before we’re all whisked off our feet crying with happiness for once.
Best Movie Quote: “I like you very much, just as you are.”
