These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
YMMV: Bridget Jones
Broken Base: Some fans loved the second film, others hated it.
Daddy's Girl: Bridget is this to Colin, this causes some angst for her mother who talks about their "grown-up club of two" and how they always talk about silly mummy.
Dirty Old Man: Uncle Geoffrey and Mr. Tits Pervert...I mean...Fitzherbert behave this way towards Bridget. A deleted scene reveals Mark's father to be a subdued version of this, in regards to his prospective future daughter-in-law's curves
Mr. Darcy: Well-built girl! I like a woman with an arse you can park a bike in and balance a pint of beer on."
Grew a Spine: What Bridget does throughout the 1st film also called back in one of the original scripts where towards the Ruby Wedding she chooses to wear a stylish black dress instead of the pre-Thatcher era outfit her mother picked out for her; this happens to Mark on a lesser extent in the film, pretty much he learns to act on his own wants.
Hilarious in Hindsight: That's Moaning Myrtle crying in a bathroom in her first scene. To continue with the Harry Potter theme, there's also Professor Slughorn and Madam Pomfrey being married.
It's hard to believe how bitchy Miss Honey is to Bridget.
This isn't the only time Rebecca Pryce had to deal with her man checking out curvy girls, bunny girls, or both.
I Was Quite a Looker: Invoked for Bridget's 2012 diary entries, where Bridget had fell into this trope between the death of Mark and her current life as a Mrs. Robinson type; she also lampshades the trope when describing the appearance of Woney as letting her "lovely dark hair go gray" and being struck with a bad case of middle-age spread, she like Bridget gets her appearance back in shape further on.
Mama's Boy: Many viewers and a critic have seen Mark Darcy as this, though his mother serves more as a background player and isn't manipulative or anyway unpleasant.
Cara Ann Lane: He is the epitome of a sensitive new age man, handsomely packaged in a nice suit. However, the catch to this characterization is his tendency to be manipulated and controlled by the women in his life. While exhibiting his sensitivity and awareness of the needs of others, he is hesitant to stand up for his own desires. His mother and his law partner/girlfriend both make most of the decisions in his life. The film suggests his ex-wife, who had an affair with Daniel (one of the factors leading to this fight), exercised similar control over Darcy.
Moral Event Horizon: In Edge of Reason when Cleaver sees Bridget getting arrested and just looks the other way.
She Is All Grown Up: Bridget grew up from a little girl who played in her underwear in Mark's paddling pool at his birthday party into an adorable, shapely woman chasing after him in a sweater, blouse, and her panties. Mark once used to be that little boy who was bemused/annoyed at that little girl and became...Colin Firth.
Values Dissonance: Bridget's mum brings a Masai tribesman back when she goes on holiday to Africa. She nicknames him 'Wellington' because she can't pronounce his name. Bridget is, of course, aghast.
A similar incident occurs (in the book, anyway) when Bridget's mother handwaves the possible reasons for Mark's ex-wife's adultery: "Well, of course, she was Japanese. A very cruel race..."
The Woobie: Jude and Bridget's parents can function as this. But there is something sad about Bridget being shocked that there is a man that likes/loves her the way she is and she clearly entered this trope even before she started lip-synching to "All By Myself."
In the original script, there are cutaway scenes where there is a glimpse into Bridget's friends and their own relatives, with Tom being closeted around his family who assumes Bridget is his girlfriend.
Shazzer and Rebecca can count in the second movie.
Shazzer has the utter look of helplessness when Bridget is caught as a drug mule, only to later find out that the guy she was friendly with was using her as a potential mule and that only her overstuffed bag prevented her from carrying the drugs, and looks really chastened and shaky when she sees Bridget again.
Rebecca counts as this trope when you consider she has been infatuated with her colleague's girlfriend and may have been in the closet somewhat.
Jerkass Woobie: Daniel can be considered this when he shows total regret for his own actions and is all aware of why his old best friend and old girlfriend/employee want nothing to do with him.
Stoic Woobie: Mark, when you consider that his so-called best friend slept with his first wife and that he became this close to settling into another loveless commitment if Bridget hadn't confessed her feelings for him.
