Behaving Badly DVD Trailer
Bridget (Judi Dench) is a professional and respectable upper middle-class wife to Mark (Ronald Pickup) and mother to Serafina (Joely Richardson).
But upon finding out that the husband she has been doting on for 20 years has been having an affair with much younger woman Rebecca (Frances Barber), he demands a divorce. Bridget is surprised by the news, but tries not to let it faze her.
Instead, without moaning, she quietly adjusts to her new independent life, using her days to hold down a part-time job, attend church and evening classes. That is until one day she realises that now single, her life has become emotionally stale.
Bridget suddenly decides to stop being so pleasant about the situation she has been thrown into. She decides to move out of the flat her ex-husband sent her off to five years ago, back to the family home, leaving a path of chaos as she starts to have her own fun and revenge on her family and friends.
