I had no idea that the bachelor was a remake from a Buster Keaton film. I have never seen the bachelor but I knew the premise. To sum it up James will inherit 7 million dollars if he can marry by today at 7pm. He has a girl that he loves he just doesn't know how to tell her.
What I liked about this film was the last 20 minutes. It was filmed wonderfully with some good stunts especially for the year. Which from what I can tell Buster does all his own. While directing the film and starring in it as well! My problem was the first 25 minutes it was very slow in the beginning and very predictable. Not that it was horrible just didn't compare to the last half. Otherwise I would have given this a better rating. This was my first film of his. I did watch the short Neighbors, which had some very good stunts as well. Overall these are well done but it's nothing I would give repeat viewing's to.
