Reread Bridget Jones' Diary and it was as hysterical as I remembered it. Can't decide if I like the book or the movie better. I like the book in that it's a modern Pride and Prejudice; that aspect got lost in the movie since they dropped the whole subplot about the "greasy beperfumed" Julio being a swindler whom Mark has to thwart. I realized there are a couple of quite funny book/movie/real life overlaps -- e.g. Bridget talks about how silly it is to be named Darcy and stand about at a party looking superior, then later mentions watching the BBC miniseries of P&P which starred Colin Firth as Mr Darcy, and of course Colin plays Mark Darcy in the movie; also Bridget's new boss proposes doing a story on Hugh Grant getting caught with a hooker, and Hugh plays Daniel Cleaver in the movie. Too bad the sequel wasn't better.
