Someone forgot to tell Sean Connery that Bond is not a Scot.

Did not like the fake British accent of Renee Zelwigger in Bridget Jones Diary. That movie was annoying also in it was like 1955 with the woman all depressed and obcessing about getting a man. There is one with Joan Crawford called "The Best of Everything" where she has to be maculine and cannot have a fulfilling life but has to just be a "career woman" and all the other women in the movie decide to give up their careers for the "man they love," and this Bridget Jones Diary was like going back in time. It was funny sometimes, and Hugh Grant was great he was so creepy, but aren't there any English actresses?

Perhaps they should have put Kate Winslet in the lead role. On a purely shallow level, she's about twice as gorgeous.
