Texan Rene Zellweger pulled off the English accent required for this role perfectly. It took awhile for me to get used to seeing her as a British woman, but the movie’s brisk pace and very funny dialogue helped. I have to confess, I like Hugh Grant a lot. I’m a big Monty Python fan, so I love offbeat British humor anyway. Some people think he acts the same way in every role. I don’t think that’s necessarily true, although he’s almost always very witty. Here he plays a real jerk, and as usual, he’s hilarious. “Bridget Jones” does take a little too-familiar turn at the end, but after all, it’s a romantic comedy, what do you expect? The genre itself almost requires a certain adherance to a little bit of cheese. I laughed a lot, and I wanted her to get the guy, so it worked for me.
