Renee Zellweger spotted shooting scenes for her new movie ‘Bridget Jones’s Baby’ opposite the Woolwich Arsenal tube in London, England.
Ladies, we have to ask: Is this a movie you’re dying to see?
We’ve spent many a night on some gal pal’s couch, downing wine and offering running commentary on all the scenes and costumes as one of the Bridget Jones movies played in the background. We have very fond memories of those films and an understanding that for some women, they remain a form of Holy Scripture, a series of truths handed down from heaven on the problems and foibles of being a modern woman looking for love. Sex and the City for gals who hate cosmos, bad puns and uncomfortable shoes. But is the world really crying out for more all these years later?
Bear in mind that we will happily traipse off to the latest Star Wars sequel when it opens, so we don’t judge if this is something you’re dying to see. We just have yet to hear any lady say “Did you hear about the new Bridget Jones movie? Can’t wait!!!”
Renee lost her actress mojo some years back so it remains to be seen if she’s still got the comedy chops to play this kind of character, especially since her image in the ensuing years since the last Bridget Jones film has gone from “perky ingenue” to “pursed-lip dowager with too much plastic surgery.” We will say that she looks good here. Whatever aggressive procedures she had done that rendered her unrecognizable for a time, the results seem to have settled down somewhat. And the costuming definitely strikes us as on point. That is exactly the kind of thing Bridget Jones would wear while pregnant.
