The Bachelor Reviews

Harvey S. Karten

An old-fashioned comedy that shouldn't work but does.

The Bachelor makes for a fine date movie.

As much as I hate to admit it, The Bachelor is funny.

Entertaining enough in a diversionary sort of way that audiences should find it relatively easy to enjoy its lightweight and charming proceedings.

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.

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

Its satire is too broad to carry much of a sting.

The problem are a beginning and middle that are equally warm-n-fuzzy -- there's no spark, no energy, no humanity.

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.

The Bachelor doesn't generate enough laughs or sighs to hold together.
