** Subverted in the third movie, where Pam runs for a position in the local council on a racist and homophobic "family values" platform. When threatened with losing Bridget over this (since Pam was also demonising single mothers), Pam changes her campaign to become much more inclusive and open-minded [[spoiler:and wins.]]

Added DiffLines:

* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: In the third movie, Mark defends a blatant {{Expy}} of Pussy Riot from extradition to their home country. This backfires when the band members stage a protest in central London - blocking all the roads just as Bridget is going into labour.

** A mid-thirties version in Rebecca in the second book. In the film, she's actually quite sweet and friendly towards Bridget.

Added DiffLines:

* [[CoolUncle Cool Aunt]]: In the books and the third movie, Bridget is made godmother to most of her friends' children and is referred to as "Auntie Bridget" and even joins them in dancing to "Gangnam Style".


Added DiffLines:

** The third movie seems to paint Jude's husband as this when she yells at him for picking Mark as the godfather to their youngest child...when Bridget was already the Godmother.


Added DiffLines:

** Then when she lost weight and got pregnant, Una remarks that she thought Bridget [[YouAreFat "got fat again"]].


Added DiffLines:

* TookALevelInBadass: Mark, during the climax of the third movie [[spoiler: where he comes in time to see Bridget, punches a glass window of a door to let her in her apartment and then carries her to the hospital]].
* TookALevelInKindness: Richard Finch in the third movie. Once Bridget's crude and sexist boss who makes fun of her and [[{{Tsundere}} has a crush on her]], is a lot nicer and more supportive of Bridget in the third movie; he even defends her to their [[TyrantTakesTheHelm new boss]] and cheers when her [[spoiler: son]] is born.


Added DiffLines:

** Richard Finch: Finds Bridget an idiot? Yes. Makes fun of and humiliates Bridget? Yes. Has a crush on Bridget? Why yes again.
