EW's GRADE
C

Details Release Date: Nov 16, 2004; Lead Performance: Various Artists; Genre: Soundtracks

Romantic-comedy soundtracks should boast flashes of wit and ardor, but Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason rarely has either. Most of the album consists of cloying touchstones like Minnie Riperton's ''Lovin' You,'' while many of the remakes — such as Mary J. Blige doing Elton John's ''Sorry Seems to Be the Hardest Word'' and Will Young's cover of Sade's ''Your Love Is King'' — are soggily sentimental. Robbie Williams' sly ''Misunderstood'' and Jamie Cullum's inventive cover of ''Everlasting Love'' are standouts, but there's little else to make even a love junkie like Bridget swoon.
