John came to Hollywood to get that one big break in life. Years have passed since and all he has to show for are a menial job, unpaid bills and airhead friends and he's getting sick of it all. Is there a way out of this downward spiral?
James Shannon III (Chris O'Donnell) is seeing his single friends get married one by one. He isn't too worried until his girlfriend Anne Arden (Renée Zellweger) catches the bouquet at his friend Marco's (Artie Lange'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 granddad James Shannon's (Sir Peter Ustinov's) will stipulates that he gets nothing of a multi-million-dollar fortune unless he's married by 6:05 p.m. on his 30th birthday: tomorrow. Not being able to find Anne, Jimmie begins backtracking through his past girlfriends to find a wife.Written by
One of the brides mentions that she "went to Princeton where Brooke Shields went." Brooke Shields played Buckley in this movie. See more »
As the bride mob is chasing Jimmie, the overwhelming majority of the brides are seen wearing white sneakers/tennis shoes. Either every bride anticipated running after Jimmie or the extras playing the brides were told to wear comfortable shoes fit for running. See more »
It's a wonderful thing, as time goes by, to be with someone who looks into your face, when you've gotten old, and still sees what you think you look like.

An "edited for family viewing" edition was released on video in 2001. This edition was not rated by the MPAA. See more »
Before I begin my comment / review of this movie, I must tell you that Renee Zellweger is a favorite actress of mine.
With that in mind, I have to say I was a bit disappointed with "The Bachelor". I found the plot and storyline to be very transparent, as well as the script. This movie did have some fun moments though. I found Mariah Carey and Brooke Shields' cameo appearances added a nice touch. Chris O'Donnell and Renee Zellweger were alot of fun to watch.
If you're looking for a fun, light hearted movie, you will enjoy it.
