Movie Night with Miss Jones

Every Saturday I buy the weekend newspaper "The Weekend West". I get hundreds of pages to read as well as the TV magazine for the week, and once in a while I even remember to enter some of the competitions, and I've won 3 or 4 too!

This Saturday I entered 3 of the competitions online, and on Monday I got a phone call to say I had won 2 tickets to the preview of "Bridget Jones's Baby".

SSo yesterday, Wednesday, my husband and I went to the movies. I met up with him after work, collected the tickets from the Box office and we still had time to have a bite to eat at an Italian restaurant in the Cinema complex before the 7 pm start.

I had seen the previous two Bridget Jones movies - Bridget Jones Diary and Bridget Jones - the Edge of Reason and enjoyed them.

Both movies were actually shown on TV last week and today as a refresher for the new one I presume, but I found "Bridget Jones's Baby" a lot funnier. 
I laughed from beginning to end (I do have a good sense of humour, so that could be expected) but I wasn't the only one!

Twelve years later, the upper class English gentleman Mark Darcy played by Colin Firth, and the other man in Bridget's life, Jack Qwant (Dr McDreamy no less), the sexy Patrick Dempsey battle to win Bridget's heart and the right to father her son.
The actor Hugh Grant doesn't feature in this movie.




Thanks to the "Weekend West" and to "Two Pommie Sheilas" for the tickets.

  1. Sounds like you had big fun (and Italian food, yum, we´re about to try a new place with a shared Pizza)!
    I have to admit I haven´t seen one of the movies, though...

  2. What a fun middle of the week outing you must have had and enjoyed. I've HEARD of the first Bridget Jones movie, but not the second one mentioned. I've seen a few ads for this latest one, but McDreamy caught me by surprise, since he looks NOTHING like I remember him looking.

    Congrats on your win, and I am glad you enjoyed the movie.

    1. I agree Elizabeth, McDreamy is not so dreamy, he's grown old...still he's not too bad looking. Thanks and have a lovely weekend!

    1. Always great to win something, I would have preferred the Lotto, but...I don't play either, so I can't win!
      Have a lovely weekend Wren.

  4. How cool to have won the tickets! Have you won anything else useful? Or funny?
    I also want to see the movie, specially now after reading what you thought about it.

    1. Thanks Sara. I have won movie tickets (I think this was my third or fourth time), music CD's, beauty products and the biggest win was a trip to Turkey for 2 when we lived in Germany!
      Have a lovely weekend.
