The release of the eagerly awaited BRIDGET JONES sequel has been put back till next year (05), because producers aren't happy with the final cut.

THE EDGE OF REASON - which reunites Renee Zellweger, Hugh Grant and COLIN FIRTH from the first film - was due to hit cinemas in November (04), but fans won't get to see it until January (05).

According to British magazine NOW, producers WORKING TITLE have decided to tamper with the movie after disappointing test screening results in Los Angeles.

Viewers reportedly bestowed favourable, but not glowing feedback - complaining the comedy was too slapstick, with Zellweger's character too much like a female Mr Bean.
