Viewers have almost two hours to become thoroughly disgusted

O'Donnell, former teen idol/Boy Wonder, has always proven to be far less beefcake than rice cake.

when it comes to delivering punchlines or finding the laughs in a speech, O'Donnell is way out of his area of expertise, and that's exactly what he's called upon to do throughout 'The Bachelor,' a wholly irritating stab at a fluffy romantic farce.

A terrible film that witlessly unfurls its limp narrative. If you've seen the trailer, you've seen the film.

If you go in hoping for a funny-sweet wedding comedy that deserves to stand with Four Weddings and a Funeral or My Best Friend's Wedding, The Bachelor will leave you standing at the altar.

Steve Cohen's screenplay, is pretty much DOA.

If O'Donnell could come off as half the jerk he's pretending to play the movie might have generated more than one laugh.

As desperate as its thousand wannabe brides.

You know a movie is desperately overreaching when Peter Ustinov, affecting a dreadful southern accent as Jimmy's grandfather, must yell into a megaphone for no apparent reason: 'The human condition!'

The funny thing is, nobody who made The Bachelor seems to notice that the script pinpoints its own formulaic emptiness before wheezing on to its foregone happy ending.

An innocuous waste-of-time.

A painful journey.

From the moment the credits roll to the 'I could see this ending coming from space' finale, you'll wish you were somewhere else less painful, like perhaps getting your gums scraped by an aluminum hand shovel.

Definitely has its moments but overall just fizzles.

Feeble and formulaic.

The Bachelor is just as dismal a failure -- the anti-date movie of the year.
Dustin Putman
January 1, 2000
Resembles a direct-to-video movie at almost every ill-advised turn because of its overall air of moronic silliness.

we care so little and know so little about the characters, we feel tiresome and slumberous

The biggest problem here was the script and direction.
