HARMANS CROSS MOVIE NIGHTS
Last month 44 people enjoyed the comedy Absolutely Fabulous – The Movie with 60 ‘celebrity’ cameo performances – all outshone by a brilliant Joanna Lumley.
We continue with the romantic comedy Bridget Jones’s Baby (cert 15) on Tuesday 14 February, starring Renée Zellweger, Colin Firth, Patrick Dempsey and Emma Thompson. After breaking up with Mark Darcy, Bridget Jones’s “happily ever after” hasn’t quite gone according to plan. Fortysomething and single again, she decides to focus on her job as top news producer and surround herself with old friends and new. For once, Bridget has everything completely under control. What could possibly go wrong? Then her love life takes a turn and Bridget meets a dashing American named Jack (Dempsey), the suitor who is everything Mr Darcy is not. In an unlikely twist she finds herself pregnant, but with one hitch…she can only be fifty percent sure of the identity of her baby’s father.
Empire magazine rated it as a 4-star film: ‘The third in the Bridget Jones franchise opens in a familiar fashion: Bridget is alone, an overflowing glass of white wine in clenched fist as she sadly sways on her sofa to the strains of All By Myself. Until suddenly she stops, switches off Sad FM and flips on House of Pain. And just like that Bridget is back: still bumbling and fumbling but immediately funnier and sharper than before... The real stand-out is Emma Thompson who wrote and created her own part as Bridget’s doctor and shamelessly steals every single scene with a wonderful collection of one-liners...You have to have a heart of coal not to laugh (a lot), cry (a bit) and leave wanting to see it all over again...More than a match for the original, the third outing for Bridget has a solid story with holes you’ll forgive thanks to the much-missed onscreen magic created by a director and her leading woman.’
Movie Nights are held at Harmans Cross Village Hall on the 2nd Tuesday every month. Tickets are £5 each and are only available at the door on the night. The hall and licensed bar will open at 7pm with the next feature’s trailer preceding the film at 7.30 and, with a 15 minute interval, the evening will end around 9.50pm. Looking ahead we move on to Sully – Miracle On The Hudson on 14 March and Hunt For The Wilderpeople on 11 April. More details in next month’s Dubber.
