Factual error: Bridget appears to be making her first parachute jump. The mistake is that she would not be permitted under UK law to make her first jump the way she does. She would either have to jump with a static line attached to the aircraft, which opens her parachute automatically. Or if she took an accelerated free fall course, she could free fall but she would do so with two instructors jumping with her to steady her and open her chute if she panicked.
After Bridget realizes all that Darcy has done for her to get her out of prison, she realizes that he really does love her. so she rushes over to his work, interrupts another meeting and tells him how he feels. then they leave the room, and he asks her if he can ask her something. she ruins the moment by saying "as long as it isn't 'will you marry me'" and then she realizes that he was going to ask that. he gets embarrassed and tells her that the moment's ruined, but she convinces him to ask her again, and he does, and she says yes.
Trivia: In the film, when Bridget has broken up from Darcy, she is telling someone that she wishes he would turn up at her door, preferably dressed in a wet white shirt. This is a reference to when Colin Firth played Mr. Darcy in "Pride and Prejudice" (1995), and the shot of him emerging from a swim wearing a flappy wet white shirt made him a massive sex icon to women in their mid-thirties.
Question: Given that in the book she's lusting after Colin Firth, but the films star Colin Firth as someone else, does anyone know for sure what's being done? Is it someone acting the part of Colin Firth, or will it be another celebrity playing themselves? Given filming's probably finished by now, there must be a definitive answer...
