(****) "A great little romantic comedy and a whole lot of fun to watch."
Film Monthly's Best of 2004: "hits the nail squarely on the head and is an enjoyable view in the bargain."
(****) "David DeLuise stars with one of our favorite actors, Missi Pyle (Scarlett Lacey from "Sarah Silverman"), in this clever and funny Battle of the Sexes. The best date movie we've seen in years."
: "BachelorMan has the same traits as its lead character, the smiling schmoozer of a ladies' man who always gets his girls: It's a sex comedy that's completely transparent but irresistible, too."
(***) "The film is a funny (and sometimes crude) look at how the male mind operates when it comes to pursuing females... At the end of the film, which has a surprise I never saw coming, Ted offers his No. 1 bachelor tip: Never take tips on love and romance -- especially from him. Now those are words to live by."
(7/10) "Along with cleverly written comedic dialogue, there are plenty of sight gags that will have you rolling with laughter. DVD extras include fake commercials that are definitely worth a look, as well as the outtakes. Those looking for a romantic comedy to spend an hour and a half with could do a lot worse than this."
(***) "BachelorMan is quite funny... The performances here are pretty good. It's nice to see Missi Pyle in a leading role, instead of the supporting roles she takes in Hollywood in such films like Josie and the Pussycats, though in one scene of BachelorMan where Teds tries to take her newspaper and she catches him, she tilts her face in a way that looks like she's briefly channeling her character, Laliari from Galaxy Quest. David DeLuise, son of Dom, can be annoying in certain spots, but makes Ted extremely likable... it's a fine effort by everyone involved."
: "Cute, crude, funny and raunchy: the swiftly-paced tale of an unrepentant bachelor (David DeLuise, son of Dom), who falls in love with the sex-phone caller next door (Missi Pyle), while coping with intrigues at his sports reality TV channel. Better than you'd expect, over-obvious but good-natured."
Austin Celebrity Reviews: "The Super-Hero analogy works great in comparison to your usual boy meets/gets/loses/gets back girl genre that grows so weary. A great performance by a very energetic young cast and Ted's mom is just a hoot. Finally the toilet seat up or down question is answered in this fun film that never forces us to think too hard."
(***) "BachelorMan feels like 30 minutes of sharp, smart comedy stretched out to three times that length. It's the same problem that befalls most movies taken from sketch comedy (like the various "Saturday Night Live" films), except that when BachelorMan is on a roll, it's so fresh and funny it nearly makes up for the dull stretches... There are some truly hilarious bits." Reviewed on videocassette, L.A., July 26, 2003. (In Dances With Films and Palm Beach film festivals.) Running time: 90 MIN. (Our first negative 3-star review!)
: "Don't go expecting too much and you might be charmed." Yeah, go fuck yourself, Chicago Reader. How's that for charming...?
And -- since we're completists, from 'Mr Skin':
: "The raunchy comedy BachelorMan (2003) stars David DeLuise as Ted Davis, a single guy who spends his days and nights hooking up with beautiful women and being a hero to his friends. But when he falls for his gorgeous blonde neighbor (Missi Pyle), then quickly breaks up with her to return to his life of casual sex, he finds that all his mojo is gone. There's a non-nude cameo by softcore starlet Kira Reed, and we get to see skin from Bridget Ellen and Helen Woo. Woo-woo!"
