Renée Zellweger plays lovable everywoman Bridget Jones, who occasionally overindulges in cigarettes, food, alcohol and spewing words into her diary while on a journey to find true love. Just when she thinks she's found a keeper in her charming boss, Daniel Cleaver (Grant), she catches him with an attractive, younger, thinner woman. As Bridget picks up the pieces, she begins to see a family friend—stuffy human-rights lawyer Mark Darcy (Firth)—in a new light. When Daniel reenters the picture, his rivalry with Mark culminates in a hilariously knock-down, drag-out fight for Bridget's love. In the end, Bridget ends up with the right man—one who loves her exactly as she is, quirks and all.
