Starring Renee Zellweger, Colin Firth, Patrick Dempsey, Emma Thompson and Sally Phillips, this film follows the story of Bridget who is trying to focus on her career and life as a single woman, only to find out she’s pregnant. 

After reconnecting with old flame Mark Darcy and spending the night with American dating guru Jack Qwant at a music festival, Bridget is 50% sure on who the baby’s dad is. 

As she does her best to figure out the identity of her unborn child’s father without Mark or Jack knowing, Jones must try and keep the pair away from each other.
