Bridget Jones’ Diary

On day 2 of our 25 Days of Christmas Countdown we move from a movie specifically about Christmas to a movie only tangentially related to Christmas, Bridget Jones’ Diary. Most of this movie has very little to do with Christmas, but because it’s opening scene and subsequent scenes at the end of the movie take place during the Christmas season it feels like a Christmas movie to me. That’s pretty much all it takes to make a movie a Christmas movie in my head. Some scenes set in a snowy winter holiday season that are somewhat integral to the movie. Bridget Jones’ Diary fits that bill. Mostly it’s a delightful romantic comedy with some Colin Firth and Hugh Grant eye candy, but I feel justified in adopting it as a Christmas movie if I want.
