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 Grandad 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
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.
