    Bridget Jones's Diary DVD (2001)Bridget Jones's Diary DVD : Since in the DVD making of the film featurette there is much made of the fact the book and film were inspired by the A&E/BBC production of Pride & Prejudice with Colin Firth as the sexy Mr. Darcy and Mark Darcy is based on Firth's portrayal and deliberately written as his modern counterpart, I couldn't watch the film without making comparisons. And that was a mistake to do because there really is little to compare except Mark Darcy is, initially, as aloof and inscrutable as Jane Austen's Mr. Darcy, if not as arrogant, and Colin Firth was deliberately cast to reprise and update his role. But it is hard to see what Mark Darcy sees in Bridget, and what attracts him to her as we never see his point of view. And unlike Elizabeth Bennet, Bridget doesn't engage him in clever verbal repartee (she's eloquent primarily in her first person narrative and diary entries), so we don't see why he falls in love with her. Firth does provide us with some more those smoldering Darcy gazes, a wonderful smile and great one-liner in the blue soup sequence and, I hope without giving too much away, a terrific kissing sequence sadly missing from Pride & Prejudice. If only we had seen P&P's Mr. Darcy kiss Elizabeth the same way Mark Darcy kisses Bridget. Whoa!! (Spotlight Review).
