QUICK TAKE:
Romantic Comedy: A 43-year-old single woman ends up pregnant, but isn't sure if the father is a long-time flame or a new man in her life.
PLOT:
While not entirely happy with how things have played out in her life from a romance standpoint, 43-year-old TV news producer Bridget Jones (RENEE ZELLWEGER) has pretty much accepted her situation. She isn't terribly upset that her ex, Daniel Cleaver (HUGH GRANT), has likely perished in a plane accident where no bodies were recovered, while it's been years since she had contact with the other significant man in her life, Mark Darcy (COLIN FIRTH).

She ends up running into him at Daniel's memorial service and then again at the christening for a friend's baby where she and he have been named godparents of the child. Upon learning he's getting a divorce from his wife, Bridget quickly accepts his invitation for a rendezvous in his hotel room, but sees that as a just a one-night fling, what with their troubled romantic past that never lasted.

She's found she has other options anyway, what with having just had a one-night stand with handsome American Jack Qwant (PATRICK DEMPSEY) while on a getaway with her news anchor friend Miranda (SARAH SOLEMANI). But when she discovers she's pregnant, she realizes she doesn't know who the father is.

In hopes of finding out, she has Miranda interview Jack on their news show, what with him being a billionaire from running an online matchmaking site. the line of improper questions pleases their new boss, Alice Peabody (KATE O'FLYNN), who wants to shake up the old-school way of covering the news. As Bridget continues through her pregnancy -- including repeated trips to see her obstetrician, Dr. Rawling (EMMA THOMPSON) -- she tries to figure out who impregnated her, all while having both men separately believe they're the father.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.
