Cheerful and unpretentious, "The Bachelor" is a lightweight concoction that works best when it remembers it's supposed to be a comedy, less well when it tries to get at universal truths through the laughs.Fortunately, the film doesn't do that often, and when it does (as, for instance, when it tries to make some point about men's and women's views on romance), it moves on fairly quickly, before any real damage is done.It also never loses sight of its main strength: the chemistry between stars Chris O'Donnell and Renee Zellweger, who look so good up there together on the screen, you really hope these kids can make it work.

Stephen Sondheim's Broadway musical "Company" has a title that refers to the companionship provided by the main character's friends, but it also essentially refers to the acting company that's called upon to do so much singing, dancing and acting. In that respect, it plays to advantage that two of the couples in the enjoyable Silhouette Stages production at Slayton House Theatre are played by real-life married couples. The banter flowing on stage may have been rehearsed across their kitchen tables.
