In the course of the year recorded in Bridget Jones´s Diary, Bridget confides her hopes, her dreams, and her monstrously fluctuating poundage, not to mention her consumption of 5277 cigarettes and ´Fat units 3457 (approx.)´. In 365 days, she gains74pounds. On the other hand, she loses 72! There is also the unspoken New Year´s resolution--the quest for the right man. Alas, here Bridget goes severely off course when she has an affair with her charming cad of a boss. But who would be without their e-mail flirtation focused on a short black skirt? The boss even contends that it is so short as to be nonexistent.
