Bridget Jones's Diary

Embarrassing sex in ''Bridget Jones's Diary''

THE COUPLE Bridget Jones (Renée Zellweger, right), slightly pudgy queen of the singletons, and Daniel Cleaver (Hugh Grant, left), her caddish but charming boss

THE SCENE Hoping for a night of passion with Daniel, Bridget must decide: Should she wear the ''granny'' panties, the ugly undergarment that will flatten her tummy, or a pair that will allow a midriff bulge but will look sexier once she takes her skirt off? She picks the former, much to her chagrin when she does end up in bed with Daniel, who ridicules her choice.

EMBARRASSMENT QUOTIENT Fairly high for Bridget, though not as humiliating as having slept with the lothario in the first place, against her better judgment.

EW MOVIE GRADE B
