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.

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

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

The humor never strikes the right champagne-bubbly tone.

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!'

Resembles a direct-to-video movie at almost every ill-advised turn because of its overall air of moronic silliness.

All in all, it's a decent date movie if you require one. Otherwise, catch it on the small screen for the sake of those character actors who we're glad to see working.
