'Bridget Jones's Diary'( Universal )
Angles of the love triangle: British single gal Bridget Jones (Renee Zellweger) hooks up with her boss Daniel (Hugh Grant) for a naughty fling, his pickup line via e-mail being, "You appear to have forgotten your skirt." The affair takes Bridget from tragic spinster to wanton sex goddess; until she finds out he's seeing someone else. She quits her job to become a TV journalist and eventually warms to a smug family friend named Mark (Colin Firth).
Final equation: Bridget knows that Mark and Daniel can't stand each other and later learns that Daniel actually slept with Mark's wife (she was led to believe the opposite). In the end (of the first film) she finds love with Mark.
