From a script by Jordan B. Cahan, storyline revolves around a man who is hired by men who have been dumped to take their ex-girlfriends out on nightmare dates, thereby convincing the women to return to their boyfriends. But trouble arises when Cook’s character is hired to take out the ex-girlfriend of his best pal.

“Bachelor” marks Cook’s third Lionsgate pic after “Employee of the Month” and “Good Luck Chuck,” which bows in September.
