* CharacterDevelopment: In the films, Mark Darcy getting over his stuck up and often embarrassed attitude over Bridget. In the third film, when Bridget has made a fool of herself on televison ''again'', Mark enters the scene and instead of acting embarrassed like he used to, simply looks at her with a loving smile.
