When she published Bridget Jones's Diary in the mid-'90s, budding British writer Helen Fielding not only stumbled on a blockbuster of a novel, she also created a thirtysomething every woman character whose obsessions with men, her weight, and her various inadequacies touched a real nerve with female folks all over the globe. So it's no surprise to finding this engaging story up on the big screen (with Renée Zellweger as Bridget), accompanied by a punchy, ladies-only soundtrack -- the exception being Brit pop star Robbie Williams, who offers a rousing, big-band style take on the Sinatra classic "Have You Met Miss Jones" and the lightly romantic original "Not of This Earth." The rest of the tracks focus on some of today's most commanding female singers, including Grammy winner Shelby Lynne (the booming new "Killin' Kind" and the previously released "Dreamsome"), Sheryl Crow (the rousing new track "Kiss That Girl"), and Tracy Bonham, whose "Just Perfect" has an Aimee Mann-like lilt. Elsewhere, onetime Spice Girl Geri Halliwell shakes her groove thang on a cover of the Weathergirls' hit "It's Raining Men" and Australian-born singer Jamie O'Neal sheds her country leanings on a version of Eric Carmen's '70s power ballad "All By Myself." Rounding out this addictive disc are a couple of vintage tracks from the '70s -- Diana Ross and Marvin Gaye's soulful duet "Stop, Look, Listen (To Your Heart)" and Chaka Khan's insanely appropriate disco tune "I'm Every Woman" -- and one track's worth of score material from Scottish composer/actor Patrick Doyle. And to up the Bridgetness quotient, the disc is also enhanced to include a "Bridget-o-Meter" (a self-graded quiz); half of the first chapter of Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason; and links to a web site that includes an author biography, photos from the film, and notes on the artists.

This is not the soundtrack for the film. But it's nice. Just be aware.

This is an excellent CD. I really enjoyed it. However I was a little disappointed because a few of the songs are not the same as the movie. I found them on an import copy. The only way to get them is to go to other sites online. This second CD has all the songs and a few more. Good choice is to buy both.

Great songs but what happened to Van Morrision's ''Somebody Like You''? He sings it in the movie but someone else does it on the CD.

Love the Cd. But what happened to the fun song that is playing when Bridget is grocery shopping on her birthday? It starts out: ''I feel fantastic....'' Does anyone know who sings that? It's really fun and upbeat. But the Gabrielle song is really great. Really beautiful. The whole CD is great.

''It's Only A Diary'' by Patrick Doyle is beautiful ... the melody is lovely orchestrated in the most pleasant tempo.
