Corrected entry: When Bridget and Daniel are in the convertible going to the country for the weekend, her scarf flies off. If you look carefully in the wide shot, you can see a crew member's hand in the backseat pulling it off and then tossing the scarf to the back of the convertible to fly away. (00:32:00)
Corrected entry: No British woman measures her weight in pounds only - always stones and pounds (a concession to the Americans but it sounds really odd to us Brits). Yes, in the American printing of the book it's always only pounds as well, but that's for the same reason, and still wrong.
Corrected entry: Bridget has a large, fabulous flat in what another mistake contribution has identified as a trendy area of London - there's no way she could afford it on her salary of assistant at a publisher's office.
Corrected entry: When Bridget is making dinner, she turns on the food processor and the lid pops off, splattering her with food. Technically, this can't happen. Food processors are built with an interlock safety switch that will not allow the motor to engage unless the lid is seated and clicked into a 'locked' position. (01:01:00)
Corrected entry: When Bridget slides down the pole in the fire station and collapses on the floor, you can see the wire that was attached to her to control her descent. (00:51:50)
Corrected entry: At the end of the movie, after Bridget calls out her window to Mark and he doesn't answer she pulls her head back inside and closes the window. She then turns around because of the sound of paper flapping, however there is no wind coming in since she just closed the window.
Corrected entry: When Bridget is leaving Daniel's house after he has told her to go home and take a bath, she notices Lara's pink coat on the stand. However, it was not there when she came in and if she had come in while Bridget was there we would have seen her.
Corrected entry: Why did Mark (Colin Firth) just storm out from Bridget's apartment after flipping through her diary? I know it was to buy her a new diary so she could start all over again, but he could have at least told her where he was going...or at the *very* least, answered her when she was shouting out her window to him.redbaron2000
Corrected entry: When Mrs. Jones is on the TV show with the jewelery and that other lad, Mr. Jones switches off the TV and then it switches back to the TV again and it's on with out him even touching the remote.
Corrected entry: In the scene where Bridget and Daniel are driving on their way to the minibreak, there are 2 types of shots: the wide shot and then the close-ups.if you look closely, the wide shots are very sunny, but for the closeups it's raining. (00:31:45)
Corrected entry: In the scene where Bridget cooks for her friends, and Daniel turns up, the friends immediately grab their cigarettes and lighters and wait. When the camera cuts back they're smoking, yet when it swings back to them, they're sitting there, waiting to light their cigarettes.
Corrected entry: When Mr. Fitzherbert asks to see Daniel before he leaves, Daniel tells him he'll be with him in a second. But Mr. Fitzherbert talks to Bridget briefly, walks down the corridor and opens the door at the end, obviously too impatient to wait for Daniel.
Corrected entry: In the scene where Bridget is dressed like a prostitute in the bunny outfit, she is wearing black fishnet stockings. A few minutes later she is wearing plain black stockings, not fishnet.
Corrected entry: Bridget's mother Pam telephones her daughter up while she (Bridget) is preparing the birthday dinner for her friends. Pam reveals that she is beginning to have doubts about being with Julian, and at that moment we see Julian snatching his hand away from his manicurist. Julian's voice says 'Be careful, you ham-fisted cow,' but if you watch his mouth, he doesn't actually use the word cow but in fact employs another choice insult which must have got the censorship peoples' backs up a bit.
Corrected entry: Bridget is talking to someone at a party and behind her walks the waiter with a tray. She turns around to take a drink. The first time when she takes the glass it's a long drink glass. When she turns around back to the camera, she is holding a champagne glass.
Corrected entry: In the scene where Bridget and Daniel have just had sex, the phone rings and she answers with the sex goddess bit and then says "Mum!" Isn't this supposed to be at Daniel's flat? How would Bridget's Mum know his telephone number?
