The Bachelor | 1999 | PG-13 | - 3.3.6

A content bachelor learns he has 24 hours to get married if he wants to receive a $100 million inheritance from his recently deceased grandfather. With Chris O'Donnell, Renée Zellweger, Brooke Shields, Artie Lange, Ed Asner, James Cromwell, Hal Holbrook, Marnie Alexenburg, T.L. Brooke, Mariah Carey, Stacy Edwards, Jennifer Esposito, Rebecca Gray, Brian Leonard, Marley Shelton, Sarah Silverman and Katharine Towne. [1:42]

SEX/NUDITY 3 - Some sexual innuendo and kissing. Suggestive dancing in one scene. A woman grabs her clothed breasts in an effort to entice a man. A woman's nipples are vaguely seen through her top, a woman wears a bustier and garters, another wears only a garter belt and stockings (no nudity is visible) and we see many women in cleavage-revealing outfits.

VIOLENCE/GORE 3 - A man is "karate-chopped" several times, a woman slaps a man and a woman chokes a man. Some scuffles/tussles while potential brides fight over a potential groom, a man is pulled off his seat with a lasso and falls hard and women chase a man and we see a stampeding group of brides.

LANGUAGE 6 - One F-word (plus a few times someone starts to say the F-word but only gets as far as the first two letters), a profane finger gesture, a few anatomical references, many scatological references and many mild obscenities.

DISCUSSION TOPICS - Marriage, bachelorhood, inheritance.

MESSAGE - Don't think of commitment as a four-letter word.

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
