"Find out why. And then we can decide if we're gonna but the skip ahead you know fifteen seconds. Or whatever for the spoiler of bridget jones baby. But at the end of that movie bridget. And mark darcy ak colin. Firth get married and whose baby was os. His don't even remember. I think they like figure out like genealogical that it is calling for that. I truly was only half paying attention. He kind of calling firth raise. Patrick's dempsey's baby okay. So if you were like doing a power ranking of the three bridget jones what's your what's your ranking. I would say the first movie. I like the best and the baby one. I like the least also especially because like it came out five years ago and it is really no less problematic than these ones from the early two thousands. That is more than one book is the book. Is it a series it is. I know that at least the first two like bridget. Jones diary and bridget jones. The edge of reason were also the name of the books. I don't know how long this series went on for. But that's a that's a great pivot into a little bit of context corner steph with these helen fielding. I mean it's nothing that is like completely earth shattering. But the bridget jones is like written and based on the life of helen fielding. Who wrote the books. Who isn't bridget. Jones exactly has a lot in common with her she worked in publishing and then she made a career pivot in her thirties to work as a tv producer which is incidentally where she meets the director of this. Movie sharon maguire. They were both working at bbc in like the nineties. Helen fielding started writing this column it. All sounds vaguely like british sex in the city. Basically were helen. Fielding's starts writing this column anonymously about her life. As a single thirty-something it gets popular. She fictionalized as more of it and turns it into this novel. Which becomes bridget. Jones's diary the book becomes really popular than she gets. I mean the fact that this movie is like a romcom in the early two thousands directed by a woman unfortunately is pretty huge unbelievable. And and i feel like there are some choices where i'm like. Oh i'm so glad that there was a female director for this. I don't necessarily trust a male director to just be super obsessed with the protagonist body. And like all this other shit that i thought was at least more tastefully handled but anyways helen fielded sharon maguire friends. They're on this. Come up together What i think is most interesting. Is that helen fielding so because this movie is turning twenty years old pretty soon There's been a lot of like anniversary reflections. There was a whole documentary on the bbc that You can't watch the states. So i don't know what happens but basically helen fielding has been reflecting on bridget jones. You know twenty. Five years. After conceiving the character and watching this movie back and she gave like this really interesting quote ever like to share about her experience watching back this movie with her kid Who i think is like in their twenty s now so this is from december of last year. So this is from a guardian article and it goes like this quote bridget. Jones creator helen. Fielding is now shocked by the sexism her character face. The writer has revealed looking back twenty five years fielding said she would not be able to write the story now watching the hit film of her first book recently with her children. She was staggered Helen fielding says the level of sexism. That bridget was dealing with the hand on the bum in so many of the scenes made it quite shocking. For me to see how things how much things have changed. Since then fielding told radio host Fielding added that she was particularly struck by a scene in which bridget's fictional boss demands a shot of the boobs. See old attitudes. That were just part and parcel of her life. Depicted onscreen again was alarming. Although her heroine played by renee zellweger is not a passive victim. In the end she turned around and stuck to them. so i don. I just thought it was interesting to see like well. This is not the triumphant feminist tale. Like that even like the authors understanding of her own work which is to an extent a reflection of how she saw herself and her own life at that time has changed over the years and with all the not. I mean with the progress. That has taken place. Since bridget jones as a character was conceived in the mid ninety s the authors. Like god that so bad. That was so an in ways. She didn't even realize as she was writing to character. So i thought that was like kind of a cool. I don't know you most writers don't give you that kind of level of insight into their own work later on. Yeah yeah because you do see stuff that again. We with our twenty twenty one lens. We very clearly notice things that again just normalized in that era that just strike us so alarmingly as just being very problematic like yes she subject to so much sexual harassment. And like there's a creepy like uncle figure character whose Harassing her and that is like played for laughs arguably in the movie but not. Because like i don't think the writer like oh let's laugh at women getting sexually harassed it's more just like that was the mentality of that era and same thing with their boss to or like that. It's a weird. That was like i wrote on like self boucher me test where you see her be hit on by two of her bosses but one she doesn't find attractive and so it's creepy and then once she does find attractive so it's like hard dream come true right and it's like well. There's a level of self awareness happening there. And yeah i've i've bridget as very much like a product of her environment. Almost of like it's kinda. Hesitate to falter for how hard she hasn't herself because that is all the. That's the only message and feedback. She's getting even from people who love her even from like her friends and family. They're like you're so what's wrong with you and so it's kind of like well you know unless you have this like unless you're like reading through feminist texts day in and day out like what you know. What are you supposed to do as a normal person. If everyone in your life is telling you that you're like not worthy. I don't know i really feel for her. I and i and i'm glad she exists. So it's like. I don't know i love bridget's die. I don't love her diet but like i. I'm pro diary. An anti the plot of the movie. What also makes you wonder like. Since she's spent so much of her diary railing against mark darcy and saying how much she hates them and how awful he is. Why does she end up with him but also he wasn't a very big part of her life. She's spending a lot of diary space onto when she doesn't really talk to rate. It's yeah but you know what's so interesting. Hearing that quote is how many female screenwriters can now reflect on a movie. They had made twenty years ago. That's just so rare. Like the fact that it was i mean she co wrote the screenplay with a couple dudes but richard curtain like the fact that it was co written and directed by a woman in two thousand two thousand and then came out in two thousand one. Yeah yeah it's i i'm like i. I was really glad that she was kind of like down to interact on that level. And not because i like so many writers and i don't even like i mean it's like just people get defensive when you're like. Why is bridget jones. Like why is everyone so mean to her. she's like i guess that's just kind of how i felt th in likely she also kind of comments on I don't know there's some kind of like there is a string of articles that came out in twenty sixteen. When the bridget jones's baby was coming out that we're kind of just like bridget. Jones isn't a feminist. So do screw her. Like which i think is kind of like okay. That's kind of weak but helen fielding kind of talks about that in two thousand twenty where she says quote at the time. Bridget said being a feminist with a capital f was another.

"Free for god. I was like wow feeling lonely and turning on frazier energy. Then they're then there. There's so many element i mean. We'll get into it more. But like there's so many elements of bridget. That i really love and i feel like it's like you don't often get to see women personally and privately dealing with their insecurities even though a lot of their insecurities come from a very toxic place. But it's like bridget doesn't really put other people down very much. She's just really hard on yourself and their remote that there are moments in the movie. Rose like oh. That's she's like she's so wrong. But i also have felt the exact same way different points about like my body or a bad relationship or i just wish that the plot went differently. I love bridget and the plot is a disaster. Yeah i don't know that the that the movie thinks she's wrong about those things right right right bridget. Okay so after. He professes his feelings for her. She runs into him again when she's covering this Kind of high profile court case for her work and he's a he's a barrister defending the people in this case and he helps her. Get an exclusive interview with them and then she cooks a birthday feast for her friends. Which it's like. Make them cook for you if it's your birthday anyway But guess who shows up at her door unannounced. It's mark darcy and guess who else shows up at her door during this dinner unannounced. It's daniel cleaver and they both want to kiss bridget. So what happens next. Is they have a fist fight. In the street that lasts for the next three minutes of screen time really long. Tom runs into the restaurant. And it's like. I say that was fun. So mark wins. The fight but bridget is not impressed with him nor with danielle so she kinda of goes off and then she spends the holidays with her mom and dad who are headed to mark. Darcy's families like holiday lunch or something like that. I'm bridgette i'm not going. But then her mom was like by the way it wasn't mark who had an affair with daniels fiance. It was daniel who had an affair with marks his wife so then bridget's like. Oh my god. I had it all wrong. So she drives like a bat out of hell. This marks This even if that is all true. Bridget you are still his second choice. Like what are you doing. And that does not redeem him for any of the other stuffy like we having experienced pain does not mean that you can just be a fucking asshole to anyone romantically interested in until you die. He's like forty. Oh my god sorry okay so then so at this little luncheon or whatever. She professes her feelings for mark darcy but then his father announces that mark is moving to new york and that natasha is going with him and they are like now betrothed so he goes to new york for a bit and then bridget is all sad and then her friends are like. Hey we're we're going to take you to paris but right is there leaving. Who shows up again but mark darcy. He has right of and she's about to go on vacation to paris like screw him. Go to paris right. But she decides to stay behind and she's like okay. Let's hang out. But then he sees her diary in which she has written about how awful he is and how much she hates him so then he leaves. I'm bridget goes running after him in her underwear in the snow. It this i was like. Oh i've seen this a million clip -ccomplish and i mean let's say auger plays the hell out of it. It's fun true. The plot point itself not great renee zellweger performance. In the moment. I have no choice but to enjoy it. And she finally catches up with him and she's like oh my god i'm so sorry but he's like no it's fine. I was just buying you a new diary that doesn't contain all manner of vitriol directed at me specifically so that we have a fresh start with me and then they kiss and that is how the movie and beautiful also notes. Let's take a quick break and we will come back to discuss good afternoon. Would you like to try free. Sample of our double fudge brownie..

"Then bridget and daniel kiss they have sex. They become an item But then he starts to get a bit dodgy and he has to bail on this like family friends party that they were supposed to go to. But you'll never guess who is at the party. Who darcy oh. Oh baby and he's also we've seen him with this woman. Natasha who is a colleague of his. They're both lawyers or barristers is a lawyer. I don t good word really good and then when you find out whether it actually means you're like But anyway so this. Natasha woman is with him and she likes him. But i was getting confused as to like whether or not they were ever romantically involved at any point in this movie. It might just very confusing right. Okay i'd have hardy earlier. She said something to the effect of like. I'm working on it. Yeah like she's and then at the end calling. I is dad is like maybe she'll be our daughter-in-law and its like does that mean there together. I think they are supposed to be almost engaged if not engaged. The other thing that confused me in this movie is the other woman for both hugh grant and colin firth. Looking can't heart look really similar. And so like i i had to. I don't usually when i'm prepping for romcom. Episodes don't usually need to watch them movie twice but so many of the key players in this movie have the same haircut that i was like. Wait a second. Because there's like liza liza and then there's natasha and they have this same. Two thousand one hairball. Mom says yeah. I know which can be easily solved by putting a wig on one of them. No one on the set was these two women have the same hair like it's so this is also what happens when there are just too many white people in a move yes yes. Percent problem. easily solved by diversifying. Your cast even a little like your movie better and help the audience. England is a diverse place. It's just yeah y- yeah but the yes the to the to the two other women have the same hair and so i was also confused about what was going on there but i think that by the end at the beginning. She's working on it by the end they're engaged and i'm assuming that there's some like cut scenes or something because it's really skip over like the developing of their relationship quite there at least interrelationship enough that they're like a canoe together which is kind of intimate right but burns and richard and hugh grant or in separate canoes. That's how you know it's not gonna last true. And in that scene he makes a titanic reference. Because he says i'm king of the world amazing and we're like wow maybe fair but he's not. I mean to tie everything back together again in love actually another movie that both of those actors are in we see. Oh no it's not colin firth it's liam neeson never mind it's liam neeson who's watching titanic with his like stepson and i i thought it was my first but that is not too that is anyway too many old white guys. Okay so bridget. Goes back to london and discovers that daniel is cheating on her with this younger woman from like the new york office of their publishing and not only that they are engaged. So then. Bridget tries to get her life together. She tells daniel off her job. She gets a new job in television at a new station Which seem to be any better than her old job because her new boss also sexually harasses her. I was like god. This is like yikes there are elements of this story where you're like oh that's so depressing but also like reflective of life like. Oh what fresh hell. I'm gonna career change because my boss was making my life impossible and now i'm going to go to a new career or my life will be impossible but in a different way. I know it's. It's not the most optimistic film of all time. So then she goes to a dinner party. Where mark darcy just happens to be. He's everywhere and he's everywhere. And which like ninety percent of this movie is colin. I character either. Very coincidentally being in the same place as bridget jones or deliberately showing up unannounced to where she is i guess i would I feel like okay if we did like a full investigative thing into like colin firth entrance scenes. I feel like that's the thing you see a lot of him being like. Oh hello you know like totally uh-huh he knows you're there i he is like i guess it's not even seen entrance. Because he's just he's been there your suddenly there with he's been in then he just of turned around and he's like i feel like a cross genre. This is pretty common. I took it upon myself to watch both sequels to this movie. Really uber no In the same thing keeps happening with his character throughout and but also like it happens also with hugh grant more and more like. It's i mean. I do think that there is i mean. We've we've kind of talked about this before. Like the whatever how it's supposed to seem inherently romantic when a when a man shows up unannounced without checking in about how you feel i because hugh grant character doesn't move to. He shows up at our house assuming that she's alone on her birthday. And then it's like oh egg on my face. I guess that you're you have a life. And i just never considered that before. Also she's had this she for all. That is very sad. How make out life out to be. She has a great group of pals he has a support system like holy people are. So i'm just like i just wish bridget jones had someone in her life. That was like you're great. Relax gets all good. You're you're a normal person and you're figuring shit out stop. Why are these identical men yelling at you all the time. They're both so terrible. I have a whole. We'll get a all the reasons that they're both such tragically different flavors of toxic. Okay so mark darcy. Is that this Like dinner party with a bunch of other couples and this is the scene where he's like. Okay bridget i know it's been like really mean to you up until this point but i just want you to know that i actually like you very much and i like you. Just the way you are. And she's very taken aback and confused by this also because she's like him. I think this is the part that and i guess because i i am admittedly not jane austen head. So jane austen heads sound off in the comments. I'm totally faith here. But it's this plot point that i feel like is especially jane austen in that. It feels like something that is weird to be happening in this century. Where like there's a lot of like female protagonists written by women in the eighteen hundreds who like create emotional intimacy but it's still a pretty toxic way with a pretty toxic person. I'm thinking of like pride and prejudice. And jane eyre of like oh like this guy has been nothing but cruel to me but he's only cruel because of his own shit so i guess i forgive him. I think that's a common thing and then bridge. Like i don't know i kind of is expecting bridget. Jones like the writing to comment on a little more but kind of just happens because well like the twentieth and twenty first centuries version of that is like men nagging women directly to their faces a flirtation tactic but not like just like he's very old fashioned nagging that colin firth. He doesn't really ever speak to her. And this till does seem right Just kinda glares at her and says something very awful about her to his mom at that party in the beginning right so again how do you how do you when he says as you are and also he insults her forty times and then he's like but all these negative qualities that i just made you feel bad about is why you're not like the other girls and you're Gosh i want more for her. Oh it makes my head hurt. Bridget's gray she. Just she should just get a cat and live her best single life. Keep watching frazier shortages. Free for god. I was like wow feeling lonely and turning on frazier energy. Then they're then there. There's so.

Kathy doll on the shelves. Are kathy figurines dressed up for mother's day. He kicked him here. We are on oh my gosh yeah so if you make the cake it actually is in the shape of kathy. Kathy character was known for her obsession with the four guilt groups food work work love and mom her honesty about her struggles paved the way for characters like bridget jones carrie bradshaw and liz lemon. I wanted kathy to be like garfield. It was but for women you know to be a little touchstone on working women's desk. You know it'll make her feel like somebody else's in. They're trying surviving but in the nineteen eighties he's no one wanted to be kathy even if they saw themselves in her greeting. Cards calendars did best. We tried many things. That did not work so well but it's fun to look at them now. Compare that to her peers peanuts calvin and hobbes newspapers are dying but they're merch is still selling when the kathy's drip retired in two thousand ten the trending topic on twitter that day was hashtag ways. Kathy should end the comic. Julie klausner suggested hoarding the experts arrived too late to find kathy flattened under a heap of diet aids cats and dating bucks which is so wrong.

"I think the black prefix always like, oh, because it's kind of like, you know, it's just like it's just I think it's more of a bridge. I if is of all time rather than race just because. Yes, queenie is black, but that doesn't need to be a mauka necessarily. And also, you know, she's going through the same things that maybe Bridget tight put of gone through this in this generation, you know, like when Bridget Jones was happening back in the day. It was. Dating apps. It was say, you know, let me tops and be like lawyer dinners Novus issues different age. You know, it's publishing desperately trying to find a way to force like these comparison titles because it makes it easier just like on a very technical level for sales to understand like what what kind of numbers we for. But then, you know, the another was another book in the dependent by Kay Davies, which was the lesbian Virginians. And that was kind of I think these prefixes a kind of like that. I think then necessary does interesting because actually it makes more sense remarketing point of university. You all good marketing. It is your job. And everyone is to know about marketing. And actually, yeah, I guess it's not saying this is another Bridget Jones. This like Bridget Jones is with thing. And then and it's just like poor partly. She's not up for. She's interesting. Any of these things that she's unhappy somewhere in LA on a beach peanut all it is. But I love how you talk say much about the straddling of two coaches and being Maltese and being seventy different things and having to like mold yourself into certain situations. Did that come from any Soviets parents of your friends will you just having moments of being like a wish I could just be straight up myself right now, why do I have to change shape shift or anything that said, it's totally Mike's princes just because you know, I've always been in these middle class. Why settings? So when I go to secondary school that was very much caso tonight. So wait, it was like it would have been a private school, but it was funded by these haberdasher as and we had like houses and very strict uniforms, and I remember. The go-to six I think there was one black girl in each house. And so that was like a granted like four of us. And so this had been been longtime coming and then the same university of Sussex, which again, very middle class, and our member never ever ever in any way feeling like I had a place in in those institutions, and then not my confidence for sure, but also I didn't sign the process of what was happening because I was just kind of. Oh, this is it who's my mom. She always raised me. And my sister to just be tolerant and not see anything. She was your site your person in this world, whoever's the person in this world, nothing matters as you're kind. And I think she kind of did a did us a bit of a disservice because it meant that I was ever put finger y felt different. It was obviously because their differences, and it's fine to recognize difference. Bandages going to friends houses and. Stig over an NBA night, joining Worcester hair anything like the shampoo, maybe not he's not and not understanding that you know, that would make me feel oh, you know. Really tiny level. And they I mean, and then, you know, like time's up by hundred just as you go through life, and the straddling of coaches, it's just I think when you're equipped for it. It really knocks you for six is in terms of education, sex, beauty, beauty standards is like something that I will never, you know. Now, if people are other pitchers pitch is really nice to be to decide you talking someone else because I am so not used to understanding that language around myself.

"She's. She's lying to everyone around her, but you know what I love about the story is shows how black woman cannot be mediocre because we'll be judged for it. Our our good is someone else's outstanding. Excellent, fantastic, fabulous out of this world. That is our good for you to say, oh, she's she's doing okay, that woman is public doing bits Geno. I mean, glory. Glory be to God and goes eah elite festival apple some respect on blurb to God's. Yeah, good, Lori anyway. But it wasn't a coup glory was on the ground. The management glory is living. Her moment is money. I think that she's something else know what parents she's doing another job. Actually, she just lying for the grand. And then meets a man. Lays name, but my mind is actually rely him, but he reminds me of Thomas. He reminds he really wanted to do you think he he wanted to mold her into a specific type of woman in the near the end? Yeah, think you know what I think I think that he just wanted things to work really wanting to officially like this go. She's a. Particular age she's ever people. This is gone to let this is. Thomas is mom comes. Of nowhere and from pleasantness comes down to just like like also, do you want kids? Do you want me to Nigeria. The story base in these glory. Glory is an only child. Don't do nothing she any child is it doesn't really have much career projection. She doesn't have do. What's her name? Bridget Jones. She is Bridget Jones and Bridget Jones would be acceptable like people will accept glory. If she was white and Ohio mediocre nece, but because she's a black woman doesn't have because of the culture that doesn't. She's judge. Thomas is on parents judge her telling how you could do so much barren life and that. Full shot. She could piss. I was listening reading in this NPR groovy, but that why don't we accept that? And it's the same thing with so much stuff. It just reminds me of like how black women and black people cannot do cannot right one things that are mediocre. They have to be outstanding out of this world. Sation with my dad this week about legacy. I was we're not say conversation. It was more him telling me and it was actually quite interesting out like so reading this story. Obviously your parents are gonna look at you and be like, hey, I didn't put this money into your fee to come out here and be scrounging money of me for your rent. Okay. Where's your money kind of thing? Like having your big woman that you'll be age out here in money from your parents and she and her mom is giving money and not telling died. I know this stuff, and I just find that really, really strange. Parents always go into like always want the best view in a legacy wise. I'm going to ask these questions. Gloria was. -tations of people and myself. So for me to be like glory, glory had never had anybody to kind of she did those out anybody to base herself of these. I mean, as an only child, I would imagine, I'm not once. I don't know. But if you don't have many, many cousins, a huge family around you all the time. There's no soundboard internal thing. For example, I have a big family, but an I definitely I'm grateful for what they've what they've helped me chief, but I can honestly say nobody ever told me to do my homework since four. That was last time. Yes. There was a food and shelter. Basic things provided that would enable me to be an environment where I could sit down to home what, but where is that internal thing that pushes you? And I think that was so different from people to remember like, yes, it's within people to people, but you know that you know that when you school in teacher says, do your homework, you'll go home to your home, what to bring it in schools, eating school, like you're not caring about because people didn't say my dog as it. Trust me in London, no festival in my. I can tell you. Like one someone, the wind blew it away. I remember who it was a k. Darren said, yeah, because it was excuse the I was like what literally said, where's your home with Daren? The winds blew away and I was raw. So it was really hard to do come into really trouble..

"And that's why keeps getting told over and over so many different forms yeah so check it out yeah well i like that i mean not as super air but i feel like in a lot of rom coms even though they're like a woman's medium it's still a lot of times it's like the guy that needs to get his act together and it's nice when the female protagonist is like we're really on a journey with her she's sort of figuring it out yeah 'cause i i don't know sometimes i gets confused and wrong calms and you're sort of like who's movie is this i don't know and this clearly bridget jones's movie and her journey and her character arc was so satisfying from being a a hard drinking smoking quote unquote overweight spinster and afraid she's going to turn out that way to kind of finding out who she was and being okay with that means a little corny but it it was great you know i'm glad you forced me to watch it so do you feel about that yeah all right so we're gonna finish with two segments here what ebert said by not what the great roger ebert thought he gave us three and a half stars at a four okay that's not bad that's great it's funny everyone always goes like oh let's have star for why didn't get a perfect rating can't give many things perfect rating no three and a half stars in he says this glory be they didn't muck it up bridget jones diary beloved book about a heroin both lovable and human has been made against all odds into a funny and charming movie that understands the charm of the original and preserves it so apparently they did right by the book that's i kind of miss him like i missed those i as corny as is like all those nineties movies that are like so heartwarming and heartfelt like i kind of miss that vibe in movies.

"I think i read the book but i don't i've read several jane allston books so i think i might have just skipped over that one because i was so familiar with the br british mini series because of any series is so long i think they've taken so much of the dialogue directly from the book that you almost don't feel the need to read the book i hear that yeah because like i've also seen like a black and white version of pride and prejudice that's also really good and it has pretty much the exact same dialogue in certain points and it's that's why i feel like i've read the book the dialogue is so good movie like the things that the mom says i don't know it's very funny did you read the bridget jones book i didn't i was really into this movie as a teenager so i don't i think i was like barely aware of the book at the time and watch it over and over again well i watched it for the first time and i have to say i loved it really yeah i so i watched this week and as i was watching it has like maybe i should have picked notting hill 'cause 'cause there's like a lot of very like cringe worthy moments that i was like i don't know if checks gonna hate this no i thought it was great okay thought it was fun and cute because that kind of marginalize it but it was cute and all the right way and i don't know i liked it i know i think i'd always a hate to to categorize movies is like either like a man's movie or a woman's movie and they're probably aren't a ton of dudes or like oh yeah bridget jones one of my favorites so that's probably why.

"She loves like can watch that one over and over seen it and i didn't dislike it but i think having seen the british miniseries version it's just hard to appreciate that one because the the so the british miniseries has colin firth in it and a bunch of other actors whose names i don't know they're all really really good and i think it's cast in that great way that i think a lot of like british shows are cast where it's not a cast unattractiveness cats genuine acting ability and i think colin firth was like so striking in in that role that the author of the book bridget jones di horie like wrote the book with him in mind really stirred as the mr darcy british on siree yeah so that's how she that's why she then cast him also in the movie version of british does he really has part lockdown yeah he's feeling yes yes he so aloof he is well first of all i feel like a dummy because about three quarters of the way into the movie and i watched this two nights ago in my hotel room here i texted me i said did you know this was like pride and prejudice remake but whatever inspire by she's i can't dummy darcy oh i just thought his name was darcy because it was a no ma maybe that didn't realize it was a bit of a modernisation it's like it's not easy read like it's not like so direct that you're like oh this is obviously the story but it's obviously inspired by you read the book.
