Jimmie is seeing his single friends get married one by one. He isn't too worried until his girlfriend Anne catches the bouquet at his friend Marco's wedding. Suddenly, his wild mustang days are numbered. He finally decides to propose to her, but he sticks his foot in his mouth and botches the proposal. Being insulted by the defeatist proposal, Anne leaves town on an assignment. After she's gone, he finds out that his recently-deceased grandfather's will stipulates that he gets nothing of a multi-million dollar fortune unless he's married by 6:05pm on his 30th birthday: tomorrow! Not being able to find Anne, Jimmie begins backtracking through his past girlfriends to find a wife. Written by
The Bachelor is very cute, Chris O'Donnell is very good in it. I've seen the old silent this is a remake of, "Seven Chances" starring Buster Keaton, it is very funny, and one of Buster's best, i never thought anyone would be interested in remaking it, but I'm glad they did. Renee Zellweger is also good in it, she makes The Bachelor worth watching. She is very pretty and believable as O'Donnell's girlfriend. The movie gets a little slow sometimes, but recovers afterward. there is an all star cast, i couldn't believe there were so many stars in it. All of O'Donnell's old girlfriends are really funny (the cop, opera singer, student, cook, stock broker, Buckley and Zoey.) So overall The Bachelor was an almost perfect movie.
