BACHELORMAN

USA, 2002 (MIFF 2003, International Panorama)

Director: John Putch

Ted Davis is a superhuman ladies man. He is worshipped by his pals who live vicariously through Ted's raunchy sexploits. Ted has all the lines, all the moves and a one hundred percent success rate in bar pick-ups. Needless to say he also has a fairly high opinion of himself as a high-flying, macho programming executive at TCSN, theTotal Complete Sports Network. He has earned respect advertising dollars and incredible ratings by formulating a succession of shows revolving around chimps, bikini-clad models and the hit series When the Elderly Attack! When he falls in love with a loud and brash phone sex-line operator his powers are put to the test and his life and career begins to unravel!

BachelorMan scooped the Audience Favourite Award at the Palm Beach Film Festival for its deliriously funny exploration of the fall of a stud. Combining the gross-out charm of the Farrelly Brothers with political incorrectness by the pants-load, the film promises not only some sure-fire tips for the single man (make use of them at your peril) but guaranteed belly-laughs.
