In the sequel to Bridget Jones's Diary (Renée Zellweger), we meet the title character where we left her: happy and content in the arms of her longed-for lover Mark Darcy (Colin Firth). Mark, meanwhile, is appreciative, considerate and tolerant (almost) of all jealous fits. Indeed, Bridget can't think of a reason why all the women in London - including Mark's new assistant, "the long-legged menace" - don't try to lure Darcy away from the plump, opinionated and often inappropriately behaving Bridget, who constantly harasses with her claim: "I never tell anything but the truth."
As soon as "long-legged danger" appears on the scene, Bridget's pink clouds, on which she has been floating, suddenly turn gray. Increasing bouts of self-deprecation begin to negatively affect her love with Darcy. Just when it seems that the troubled surface of their relationship is not going to calm down, Bridget's former boss, Daniel Cleaver (Hugh Grant), an experienced conqueror of women's hearts, appears on the scene. Bridget quickly extricates herself from the awkward situation and falls into a romantic mistake - but still manages to navigate her way through the tangle of embarrassments and problems that accompany any working woman, especially when she has become a symbol as "an independent heroine who can handle life..."
