Synopsis

British comedy double-bill, starring Hugh Grant. In 'Bridget Jones - The Edge of Reason' (2004), having finally found the perfect man in gorgeous lawyer Mark Darcy (Colin Firth), 30-something ex-singleton Bridget Jones (Renèe Zellweger) is now faced with the even bigger challenge of keeping him. When her self-doubts return and her womanising ex-lover Daniel Cleaver (Grant) reappears uninvited, Bridget gets entangled in a comic mix of bad advice, miscommunications and total disasters that could only happen to her. In 'About a Boy' (2003), Grant takes the lead role as aimless, commitment-shy, thirtysomething Will in this adaptation of Nick Hornby's bestseller. Living on the royalties of a hit song his father wrote 40 years ago, Will drifts through life, moving from one relationship to the next with little lasting effect. But when he hits upon the new idea of dating single-mothers, he soon finds himself entangled with the suicidal Fiona (Toni Colette) and her 12-year-old-son Marcus (Nicholas Hoult). As he and Marcus gradually develop a friendship, Will begins to reassess the selfish life he has been living.
