Firstly I've got a strange way of doing scores out of ten - I won't bore you with the details except to say that I never give 10's so really I kind of mark out of 9.....so my 4/10 here is more like a normal person's 5.5 out of 10. What I'm trying to say is that The Bachelor is not bad at all. It is only occasionally funny, and it goes over stuff we have seen on countless other movies. It is also very predictable. But I enjoyed Sordi's performance and watching the flawed but likeable mamma's boy character he embodied stumble through the story. I particularly enjoyed his performance in the sequence towards the end with him dancing awkwardly. I also enjoyed the film's insight into 50's Rome and culture. This is one of those films that takes you off to another time and place and you can lose yourself for a while.
