In BRIDGET JONES'S DIARY--based on Helen Fielding's novel--Bridget Jones is a pretty and neurotic thirty-something 'singleton' (in her vernacular) who vows to take control of her life after being humiliated by handsome, stand-offish barrister Mark Darcy at her parents' New Year's party. Determined to lose weight, and cut back on vices like wine, cigarettes, and workaholic-alcoholic-misogynistic men, Bridget begins a diary to chart her progress. Unfortunately, the P.R. executive hits a snag when her boss, gorgeous cad Daniel, instigates a sexy e-mail flirtation. Despite her tendency to bungle book launch parties, and any situation involving the ever present, ever-disapproving Mark Darcy, Bridget's winning combination of charm, vulnerability, and wit intrigues not only the seductively dangerous Daniel, but also the arrogant barrister.
