Bridget Jones's Diary mistake picture

Continuity mistake: When Bridget is getting dressed for her big date with Daniel, her tights are over her undies; later, when he's going up her skirt, the tights are clearly under her big ugly undies. (00:17:50 - 00:26:00)

Mark Darcy: I don't think you're an idiot at all. I mean, there are elements of the ridiculous about you. Your mother's pretty interesting. And you really are an appallingly bad public speaker. And, um, you tend to let whatever's in your head come out of your mouth without much consideration of the consequences... But the thing is, um, what I'm trying to say, very inarticulately, is that, um, in fact, perhaps despite appearances, I like you, very much. Just as you are.

Trivia: When Mark Darcy returns from America in order to kiss Bridget, she asks him: "So you're not going to America then?" and he says "So it would seem." Incidentally that is also the last line of the BBC version of Pride and Prejudice, which also starred Colin Firth. Helen Fielding, the author, openly admits that she got her inspiration for the story from Pride and Prejudice. It was written for TV by the same bloke, Andrew Davies, who helped write the screenplay for Bridget Jones's Diary.

Question: Does anyone know why Mark Darcy's mother's name was changed from Elaine (in the book) to Geraldine (in the film)?

Answer: Lots of times in book-to-movie situations and even in some remakes, the producers/writers/directors change names or events. It can be because of personal issues, legal ones or it can even be spur of the moment. it can also be unintentional,when they change it without the specific INTENTION to change it. I think in this case it was more likely that the character/or their name didn't have too much of an impact on the story line, so they didn't feel a pressing need to keep it the same.
