Bachelor, The

by Greg Muskewitz

"Singled out."
2 stars

The Bachelor is a full-fledged chick-flick, with Chris O'Donnell as Jimmy, a young, study man, who is none other than a bachelor — or, in his eyes, a “wild mustang.”

This mustang has no interest in being tied down by marriage until his grandfather, his only living relative, dies. As the will stipulates, he’s got 24-hours to find that Miss Right otherwise he’ll lose out on the $100-million inheritance. It’s a dull, stupid premise populated with a throng of annoying and unlikable characters. All-in-all, screenwriter Steve Cohen and director Gary Sinyor cannot deny that the ultimate message the movie delivers is that greed (in forms of money) is far more important than love. Or that money can buy love.

With Renée Zellweger (first under-used, then over-used, and then almost completely forgotten) and Marley Shelton.

[Not to be bothered with.]
