I knew it would happen. The producers are apparently mulling over a Bridget Jones sequel. I can see A LOT of problems with this. A) The actual book’s sequel wasn’t very good, if you ask me. I liked reading more about Bridget, but the plot itself (which was apparently based on Austen’s “Persuasion,” I think) was a bit ridiculous and not at all funny. B) There wouldn’t be a role for Hugh Grant. Daniel isn’t in the book at all, and for them to write him in would require a major rewrite of the entire story. And besides, they already expanded his damn part for the first one. C) It’s not very romantic. It kills the “happily ever after” you get at the end of the first book/movie. It would be wrong. I’m sorry, Helen Fielding, but I think you should leave well enough alone.
