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 (Chris O'Donnell) falls in love with Anne (Academy Award winner Renée Zellweger). 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, Jimmie's thirtieth birthday is now 24 hours away, and he must find a bride or lose a fortune.

Rotten Tomatoes® Score

Critics Consensus: Clichéd, witless and irritating, The Bachelor proves Chris O'Donnell is no Buster Keaton.

Unbelievable plot and stale stereotypes.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that in general, this film portrays women as marriage-hungry robbers of men's freedom, and men are portrayed as commitment-fearing wild animals who enjoy drifting from one woman to another. Parents may want to discuss these stereotypes with their teens.
