A poll, conducted amongst British men between the ages of 18 and 65 by the Office Of National Statistics, has revealed that at least 95% of the men surveyed thought that the decidedly shambolic, low key, fight between Hugh Grant and Colin Firth in the movie, Bridget Jones’ Diary, was “a right good tear-up” and mirrored the man-to-man tussles they had experienced themselves, while 5% thought that the two protagonists fought “like a couple of big girlies” and should have used weapons of some description.
A parallel survey, conducted amongst women in the same age group, revealed that 3% thought they “ought to know better”, 37% said that, had they been present,they would have shouted out “Just leave it Hugh/Colin. He’s not worth it!”; while the remaining 60% said they would “cheerfully drink their bath water”
