Bridget Jones’ Diary, Everyman Cinema, Winchester
October 6, 2016
Movies with Friends
Last week we attempted to see Bridget Jones’ Baby with Kevin & Allison but when the guys went down to buy the tickets for that night’s viewing, they were all sold out. This, however, didn’t stop us from catching a drink and bite to eat together. We enjoyed a lovely meal at one the many Indian restaurants in central Winchester, Rimjim. It was was well flavoured, very tasty and as always, very filling. Left feeling like we didn’t need to eat for a week.
We made plans to attempt to see again the following week; planning for Simon & Kevin to purchase the tickets two days before hand. It worked!!! We were going.
We meet up at ‘The Exchange’ for a drink, while we waited for Allison to make her way over from work. Subsequently found out that ‘The Exchange’ doesn’t have a kitchen, but you can bring in food or have it delivered.
After a couple of drinks, we headed down to the local cinema – The Everyman – to see Bridget and find out who the father of her baby was.
The movie was good, kept you laughing. The story line wasn’t too long, or dragged out, it had a good pace to that kept you engrossed and not looking at your watch. It was bit odd with Patrick Dempsey who is very American in such a very British movie. It didn’t quite seem to fit. (Plus as Sara says – he needs to go back to Meredith (Grey’s Anatomy))
It was good laugh and not bad for 2nd sequel, especially as it was 12 years since The Edge of Reason was released.
