Clichéd, witless and irritating, The Bachelor proves Chris O'Donnell is no Buster Keaton. Read critic reviews

Movie Info

Jimmie (Chris O'Donnell) and Anne (Renée Zellweger) are in a committed relationship, but the pressure is mounting on Jimmie to propose. Rather than lose Anne, Jimmie decides to ask for her hand in marriage. But when he delivers a lackluster speech to her, Anne turns him down. Jimmie soon finds out that he has one day to find a woman and marry her; otherwise he will lose out on his hefty inheritance. What ensues is a crazed search through Jimmie's past to find a suitable bride.

    The plot is not exactly original but this is a fun movie and I enjoyed it. Chris O' Donnell stars as a bachelor who must marry in 24 hours in order to inherit a one-hundred million dollar inheritance from his grandfather. But there is a big catch - this grandson must marry by 6:05PM on his 30th birthday, must stay married for at least 10 years, cannot spend more than one night a month apart from his wife, and must have children. Otherwise, all assets, including the billiards factory, will be sold. Only there is a problem: neither his present girlfriend nor his ex-friend are willing to do this. Also starring Renee Zellweger, Brooke Sheilds, Sarah Silverman, Jennifer Esposito and Mariah Carey. Also starring Artie Lang as Marco, O'Donnell's best friend and partner in crime.

    Batman`s Sidekick. Unlike his role as Robin, I like watching Chris O`Donell other Movies. This Movie is like a Fun Slide so are we Singles. lol It was nice to see he didnt want to marry the girl because out of Egoistical reasons. In my opinion this is not really a typical Chick Flick. I think guys will enjoy it too. Great Cameo appearence by some great singers and actress. I like the tiny bit with Brooke Shields. alot of lolsThe Scene where he(Chris O`Donell)decides to rest in the church and <u>awakens to find hundreds of brides waiting for him</U>reminded me of the Dummy of Jeff Dunham: Achmed the Dead terrorist and HIS 72 Virgins. Must have been heaven for Achmed. lol <i>Fav bit and a beautifull Scene</i> Jimmie runs up the street, climbs a fire exit ladder and shouts for Anne. With the would-be brides, Marco and Jimmie's colleagues in hot pursuit, the priest then conducts the service over the police loudspeaker from inside a police car as brides attack the car. Anne convinces them to be happy and let it be her day. They cheer and everyone has cake. Marco gets a surprise when he finds his wife joined the crazy brides, but they're OK with it. The clock strikes 6:05 p.m. and all is well...until the bridal bouquet is thrown for another couple.
