The Bachelor

Continuity mistake: In the very last scene of the movie where Chris O'Donnell and Renee Zellweger are on the terrace taking their vows, Renee is holding a bouquet. In one shot it is a bouquet of pink flowers, then it changes to a bouquet of yellow flowers and keeps switching back and forth throughout the scene.

Continuity mistake: Near the beginning of the film, when Chris O'Donnells's Grandfather gives him his grandmother's engagement ring, Chris takes the ring out of the case to look at it. He is holding it between his fingers and examining it closely. We then see a closeup of Chris holding the ring in its case. When we see a long-shot of Chris right after this, he is still holding the ring in his fingers.

Audio problem: When the brides are chasing Jimmy down the streets of San Francisco, you hear the familiar noises of high heels. However, if you look closely, the brides are sporting tennis shoes.

Plot hole: Jimmy pays the baker double to deliver the cake to 'the [train] station.' So how did the delivery man know to deliver the cake to the exact spot in the city where Jimmy and Ann ended up?


Continuity mistake: During the scene in the Starlight room they show the waiter open the Don Perignon. There's a wide shot where you can see the singer with Jimmy and Anne in the background. In this shot Anne takes her glass to drink, but in the next shot, the glass is still on the table, untouched.

Continuity mistake: When Jimmy breaks up with Monique and Anne is sitting behind his back, Anne and her sis are talking about her ex-boyfriend. In one close-up of Natalie, you can see that she has stacked up the left over pieces of her cake, in the next shot, the pieces are normally lying on the plate.

Continuity mistake: At one point when the brides are chasing Chris O'Donnell, he is not wearing a tee shirt under his tux shirt. Later, after the chasing has stopped, he is visibly wearing a rounded collar tee shirt under his tux shirt.

Other mistake: It's after he proposes to Zoe, when they're in the limo and Milo is driving. He's talking and driving, but if you look through the window, the scenery in the background is clearly not changing.

Continuity mistake: During the scene when the tough cop ex-girlfriend is beating up the suspect, her sleeves take on a mind of their own. They move up and down without being touched.

Priest: It's a wonderful thing, as time goes by, to be with someone who looks into your face, when you've gotten old, and still sees what you think you look like.

Question: Can someone please tell me how this movie ends? Neither or have it listed and I'm going crazy.

Answer: He's being chased by hundreds of brides, but his friends get Renee Zellweger to meet him. He climbs up a fire escape ladder, and spots her in the crowd. She climbs to meet him, and they get married right then and there, with the priest using a megaphone to say the vows. The time reads exactly 6pm, or whatever the deadline was.
