About the Movie
One thousand brides, one hundred million dollars, Jimmie Shannon is about to discover the true value of love. When he least expects it, Jimmie Shannon (Golden Globe-nominee Chris O'Donnell "Scent of Woman," "Batman & Robin") falls in love with Anne (Academy Award and Golden Globe-winner Renee Zellweger "Cold Mountain," "Chicago"). After a three-year relationship, Jimmie reluctantly proposes marriage to Anne, but sensing his uncertainty, Anne rejects Jimmie. Then Jimmie's grandfather dies and leaves him $100 million--on the condition that Jimmie marry before he turns 30. The problem is, Jimmies thirtieth birthday is now 24 hours away, and he must find a bride or lose a fortune. Also staring Golden Globe- nominee Brooke Shields ("TV's Suddenly Susan," "The Blue Lagoon").

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: Its satire is too broad to carry much of a sting.
Rotten: O'Donnell and Zellweger are easy on the eyes, but we're asked to take it on faith that they have other qualities that would make a person care for them.
Rotten: You know a movie is desperately overreaching when Peter Ustinov, affecting a dreadful southern accent as Jimmy's grandfather, must yell into a megaphone for no apparent reason: 'The human condition!'
Rotten: Probably the best that can be said about The Bachelor is that it gave a lot of work to female extras.
By far, one of the worst movies I've ever seen. I'm dumber for having watched it.
awesome movie if you've never watched it I strongly suggest renting it
