The film was a box office success, grossing $281,929,795 worldwide, which is staggering given its reasonable budget of $20 million.
Check out some of the funniest quotes below:
[From the UK release]
Bridget: Bridget Jones, wanton sex goddess, with a very bad man between her thighs… Mum… Hi.
Bridget: You once said you liked me just as I am and I just wanted to say likewise. I mean there are stupid things your mum buys you, tonight’s another… classic. You’re haughty, and you always say the wrong thing in every situation and I seriously believe that you should rethink the length of your sideburns. But, you’re a nice man and I like you. If you wanted to pop by some time that might be nice… more than nice.
Mark Darcy: Right, crikey.
