Will he be well succeeded?u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eu0026quot;The Bacheloru0026quot; is an absolutely underrated comedy, with an entertaining and delightful story based on a play. The situations Jimmie Shannon gets in with his ex are hilarious. The final scene when he is chased through the streets of San Francisco by hundreds of brides is unforgettable. Renée Zellweger is very sweet in the role of Anne Arden. My vote is nine.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eTitle (Brazil): u0026quot;Procura-se Uma Noivau0026quot; (u0026quot;A Bride Wantedu0026quot;)”
