The Bachelor got critically slammed when it played in cinemas, probably because reviewers couldn't help comparing it with the movie on which it's based, the brilliant Buster Keaton comedy Seven Chances. But on its own terms, The Bachelor is a modest and enjoyable picture about Jimmie (Chris O'Donnell), a happily single young man who suddenly gets an ultimatum from his grandfather's will: marry by his 30th birthday or lose an inheritance of 100 million US dollars. This is revealed the day before that very birthday. Unfortunately, Jimmie had already proposed to his girlfriend Anne (Renee Zellweger) and been turned down; she can see in his eyes that he isn't ready to get married and refuses to accept him until he is. So Jimmie needs to find a bride--fast. Though the commitment-shy man is a hoary clichè, The Bachelor successfully exaggerates Jimmie's fears to comic proportions. O'Donnell is his usual affable self, but it's Zellweger who seizes every scene she's in and makes something really enjoyable out it. The movie's greatest weakness is that she's such a small part of the second half. Still, there's good supporting performances from Hal Holbrook, Ed Asner, James Cromwell and Marley Shelton (as Zellweger's sister), and Peter Ustinov and Brooke Shields both have very funny scenes. The Bachelor skirts some dangerously chauvinistic territory at times, but by and large it's a pleasant comedy with some genuine good humour. --Bret Fetzer, Amazon.com --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

This movie is a little slow in getting going, and the intro. is not that good - perhaps even a bit too silly to be funny, but I would suggest 'sticking with it' as there are some really funny scenes in this, and as previously mentioned; the scene with the hoards of brides is absolutely hilarious! The best scene by far though, being the wedding that 'almost' happens to Brooke Shields - she is brilliantly funny in this!
Not a laugh a minute, but certainly has some good fun moments!
Jimmy is the typical male; he doesn't want to settle down just yet and tie the knot because he's happy doing what he is doing; basically, he's afraid. This changes however when he meets the lovely Anne and after a year or two of being together he finally decides to pop the big question. He takes her to the 'Starlight Rooms' the place where everyone purposes to their wife and just as he is about to ask her, that feeling of uncertainty creeps in and he makes an absolute bodge of it and she leaves the next day on a photography assignment.
He also finds out the next day that his grandfather has died and finds out that the only way that he can receive his hundred million dollar inheritance is to marry before his 30th birthday, which unfortunately happens to be the following day! He now has twenty four hours to find himself a bride so that he can get his grandfathers money. How far will he go and what will Anne have to say about it?
Overall, 'The bachelor' is quite a nice film with some good acting and quite a few genuinely funny moments that make it a perfect movie to whittle away a few spare hours and dosen't require too much brain. Worth a watch.
Renee Zelwhatever was so cute in this movie and those Chris O'Donnell baby blues are swoon worthy
Great movie great cast.
