The soundtrack of "Bridget Jones: The edge of reason" is a mix of pop songs, old classics and music that is meant to make you laugh, thinking about the movie. It's a predictable selection, for sure, but who cares? Isn't it funny and delicious to listen to Barry's White "you're the first, the last..." or "I'm not in love", by 10cc, on the same album? This CD brings three highlights, in my opinion. The first, probably the best song on the compilation, is the version of "everlasting love", sang by Jamie Cullum. This guy has an amazing voice and really makes the song sound better. I also love the emotional cover of "Sorry seems to be the hardest word", by Mary J. Blige and at last, but not least, the duo between Rufus Wainwright and Dido, "I eat dinner" -- absolutely funny.
I have the three CDs of "Bridget Jones" movies and whenever I feel like, I listen to them,to remember the movie, which is also great. Check out the international version of the album, with 3 extra tracks!
