“Nothing beats the rainy blues than watching this hilariously lovely rom-com in advance from universal pictures. the third instalment of the Bridget Jones films starring #ReneeZellwegger#bridgetjonesbaby is a truly entertaining film not to be missed this season. Find out who between #colinflirth and#PatrickDempsey is the real dad. It’s mind-boggling I should tell you. We were even given a baby test kit as a token, lol!. Thanks #Rezirb and Stanley Briz a for the premiere invite.. Showing now in your fave’ theater! 🙂

It is fair to say it was very well thought out and very well put together. The veteran actors gave a really natural performance and it did not feel forced at all. There was enough element of surprise and a great twist at the end.All I can say is it is a great film to watch at night with a bowl of popcorn. It will be different to what you expect, but actually even better! I would recommend this film.
