Bridget Jones's Diary

Other mistake: The last name in the credits from the cast is called Melinda, when in actual fact, the character in the film is called Melanie.

Other mistake: When the two gents are fighting in the restaurant Hugh Grant tackles the guy through the plate glass window and they land on the street. Two points: 1) How do they not receive any cuts from landing on shattered plate glass. 2) Check out the glass laying on the street. It is cloudy, a main characteristic of breakaway stunt glass.

Other mistake: When Bridget's friends come over to her home they always need to call up first. She then can buzz them in by pressing a button that unlocks the building's main door. Yet when Bridget first runs from her flat after Mark with just her bare feet you can hear her feet crunching on snow. She then runs back inside to put on her shoes and a sweater. If she really needed to buzz her friends in then there should have been a hallway where she ran first and not the outside directly. [As an addition: when Mark comes to Bridget's door to show her the newspaper article, as he says ...'I may have come at a bad time...' you can see a hallway behind him. When she runs outside at the end of the movie there is, for some reason, a different set outside her doorway. For example, when Bridget opens the door to run after Mark, it looks like she is running into bright sunlight - lighting way too bright for hallway illumination and especially out of sync with the evening sky.]

Other mistake: When Bridget and Mark kiss at the end, he puts his coat round her. The coat is huge! It's obviously specially made because before it wasn't as big as that.

Continuity mistake: When Shazzer talks about introducing people with thoughtful details, Jude taps off her cigarette ash. Seconds later, she's seen with at least half an inch of ash on her cigarette. (00:16:55)

Bridget: You once said you liked me just as I am and I just wanted to say likewise. I mean there are stupid things your mum buys you, tonight's another... Classic. You're haughty, and you always say the wrong thing in every situation and I seriously believe that you should rethink the length of your sideburns. But, you're a nice man and I like you. If you wanted to pop by some time that might be nice... More than nice.
Mark Darcy: Right, crikey.

Question: I never understood the joke about the scene where Bridget was wearing the black dress and white undies. Everything looked fine to me, but she looked all embarrassed in front of the guy she was with when the two were fooling around. What joke did I miss?

Answer: The type of underwear she was wearing was larger than he expected a young woman to wear. They appeared to be what one might call "granny panties."
