Bridget Jones's Baby (2016)

The opening scene is not bad. It's got a funny twist to it. It's over in a couple of minutes though. And then the rest of the movie, at least the rest of the first half of the movie, is a real snooze. It's over-acted and under-written. Trying to be R-rated in some its language does not save it, and adding supposed cute kids in dance scenes does not either. Ultimately, the story line is akin to the most-often stories told on the worst day-time television shows under the rubric of  "whose my daddy," but those episodes gratefully end in 10 minutes while this movie drones on. It might be tolerable if you're locked into an airplane flying to Kartoum, but if you watch it on Amazon, it's not even free yet. No matter how endearing you find Renee Zellweger, and who doesn't, this is not her great come back.
