Reflections on a V. Wet Shirt

What is the biggest difference between the Bridget Jones books and the Bridget Jones movies?  Answer: The absence of a very wet shirt.

For anyone who has not read The Edge of Reason, stop what you're doing, go get the book, and read pages 136 to 143.  You will thank me for it.

Why?  Because Bridget Jones interviews Colin Firth.  And despite the fact that she does so very inarticulately, can any of us blame her?  All I have to say is that she asked the tough questions that every woman wanted answered.

Obviously, they couldn't have this scene in the movie version (despite my keen ideas about how they could have done it), so they shot it as a DVD extra.  THE BEST DVD EXTRA IN CINEMATIC HISTORY!


  1. it's good to know that there is at least one redeeming quality of that horrible movie.

    Mmmmm, must go fantasize now. ;)

  2. Yes, exactly. That is the absolute correct response to this post. I certainly meant it to be a call to action, the action being "fantasizing over Colin Firth." :-)
