This week Sammi and Beau get a reprieve in the form of the crackling onscreen chemistry between Renee Zellweger and Colin Firth in 2001's 'Bridget Jones's Diary,' a loose homage to Jane Austen's 'Pride and Prejudice.' This week the only yelling is over how superhuman Colin Firth's eye acting is and Hugh Grant's questionable attributes, with the occasional eye roll directed at the soundtrack. 

 

Bridget Jones's Diary was directed by Sharon Maguire and stars Renee Zellweger, Colin Firth, Hugh Grant, Jim Broadbent and Gemma Jones.
