Bridget Jones's Diary | 2001 | R | - 6.4.8

A single, 32 year-old editor (Renee Zellweger) realizes she needs to do more with her life than watch sitcoms and listen to 80s music, so she has a fling with her boss (Hugh Grant) -- but another man wants her heart. Also with Colin Firth, Jim Broadbent, Gemma Jones, and Embeth Davidtz. [1:35]

SEX/NUDITY 6 - Mostly played for laughs: Sexual innuendo, including references to oral sex, and some passionate kissing. A couple kiss while in bed, and a man and woman kiss on the couch and then roll around on the floor kissing. Then the man reaches up a woman's skirt to pull off her underwear (we do see her underwear) but stops. We see a man and woman in bed post-coitus; the man is shirtless and the woman is in her bra. We see a couple, both obviously naked, in bed with covers up to their chests. A woman and man have sex, with the man on top of the woman; we see the bare buttocks of the man and the sides of the two naked bodies. Twice a man puts his hand on a woman's clothed buttocks. We see part of a woman's bare buttocks as she's putting on a skirt (we see her underwear). We see a woman taking a bath, but she's reading a book and it covers her breasts. We repeatedly see a close-up of a woman's buttocks while she's wearing see-through black tights. We see a woman in her undergarments. A woman wears a transparent outfit; we see her bra and underwear through the material. We see one lion humping another lion (on television).

VIOLENCE/GORE 4 - A woman falls out of a car. Two men engage in a fist fight, a man hits another over the head with a garbage can lid, a man throws a man onto a table, a man tackles another and both go through a large glass window pane and end up with cuts on their faces. A man punches a man in the face, giving him a bloody mouth. A woman is shot in the chest; we see the bloody wound and see blood on the wall.

LANGUAGE 8 - About 30 F-words (one written across the screen), several anatomical references, a few scatological references, several mild obscenities, some religious profanities, a few insults and racial slurs.

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
