A story that's too fascinating to pass by...

Murphy Howard

I enjoyed watching this film and would recommend other to give it a try , (as I am) but this movie, although enjoyable to watch due to the better than average acting fails to add anything new to its storyline that is all too familiar to these types of movies.

Mandeep Tyson

The acting in this movie is really good.


An interesting non-Christmas take on A Christmas Carol, but not that great of a movie. The dialogue seemed forced and sloppy and it was extremely predictable. On a side note, is it me, or does Matthew McConaughey play the exact same character in every movie?


This movie is in a way very close to my heart because it mirrors me in a way and my early days I love this movie for several reasons 1) I is a "Christmas Carol" themed moves of what life was, is and will be in the future if things are left unchanged 2) I like Jennifer Garner movies 3) and finally it is a reflection on what MIGHT HAVE BEEN for me because of what happened to the hero also happened to me except in my case it was a girl that humiliated me in front of my friends turning me into a woman hater Except I never went the screw them all route I just wanted nothing to do with girls until Linda (my wife) came and stole my heart and showed me how wonderful woman could really be Today I love girls but my one and only girl is my wife Linda who showed me what love is truly all about I have no regrets about canceling my War game date to go out with Linda when she phoned to ask me out Best decision I ever made It is sadly a reflection of life in general and how one slip up can ruin a persons life One has to get back in there and stick it out Michael Douglas as Connors mentor did a good job messing up Connors life's but in the end he like Marley saw the error of his ways and came to Correct them before it was too late One thing that does stick out a lot is no matter which version of a Christmas Carol you watch the First ghost always seems to have the biggest cheeky and care free attitude Love this movie


GHOSTS OF GIRLFRIENDS PASTI am not a huge romantic comedy fan… but I don't mind Matthew McConaugheys films. He is actually quite funny. This was a disappointment though.It was alright mostly, but it was nothing great. I was hoping for more comedy but there wasn't really a lot to laugh about. The situations that Matthew gets in could have been funny, but instead were just cringe worthy. He plays a completely unlikeable character.The story is a complete rip off of A Christmas Carol. A guy is a womaniser and he get's visited by 3 ghosts to show him in the past, present and future etc… It is a classic story, but I think they killed it with this. They should stop making this now. The story has been made so many times and there are some great versions and some terrible ones. Enough is enough. I think Hollywood needs to think of some more original ideas. No more rehashes or remakes. 9 times out of 10 they are not better than the original, so why bother?The casting was alright… The films stars Matthew McConaughey, Jennifer Garner and Michael Douglas. They all do reasonable jobs and were convincing in their roles. I just think Matthew needs to change the direction of his acting. I know he has started taking more serious roles now, which is a good thing. He was amazing in A Time to Kill. I still think that was his best film (that I have seen). Jennifer is a good actress, but has not really made anything that sticks out in my mind to make her a great actress… hopefully one day she will get that role that catapults her. Michael Douglas is a legend… he has made some fantastic movies in the past and I hope that he makes a lot more in the future.Ghosts of Girlfriends Past ran along at a good pace… I was not really bored throughout the movie. It kept me entertained, but I think it should have been so much more. Matthew seems to have made 1 too many romantic comedies.I will give this film 5 out of 10."So here's a couple of tips. When you first meet a girl you give her two compliments above the neck. Yeah, tell her she's got nice lips, nice eyes, nice hair... she's intelligent, her moral ethics, whatever crap comes to your mind. Then just when she begins to thinks that you're another - you know - vanilla nice guy that she can tool around with all night without getting naked... you insult her! Flip the power dynamic and your let her know that you're here to play."For more of my reviews, please like my Facebook page:https://www.facebook.com/pages/Ordinary-Person-Movie- Reviews/456572047728204?ref=hl


Ghosts of Girlfriends Past is a romantic comedy film whose plot is based loosely on Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol.It stars Matthew McConaughey and Jennifer Garner together with Michael Douglas.It features a wedding day and the day before, rather than the familiar Christmas and Christmas Eve from A Christmas Carol. The three ghosts share similar appearances with the original descriptions, and the film shares the traditional plot points from the book.Connor Mead is a famous photographer and confirmed womanizer. He takes a break from his playboy lifestyle to attend his brother's wedding, where he becomes reacquainted with Jenny Perotti, the only girl who ever captured his heart. After Connor delivers a drunken speech at the rehearsal dinner where he says that love isn't real, he's met in the bathroom by the ghost of his uncle Wayne, a Hefner-esque horndog who taught Connor everything he knows about picking up chicks. Uncle Wayne informs Connor that, over the course of the evening, he'll be visited by three ghosts who will lead him through his romantic past, present, and future. Just in case you can't get enough of the romantic comedy movies of Matthew McConaughey, Ghosts of Girlfriends Past is here to remind you that, yes, some films of his are even worse than Failure to Launch, Surfer Dude, and How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days.Although there are some sweetly sentimental moments, they are not nearly enough to redeem what is otherwise a lightweight film.It was simply formulaic,clichéd and predictable from beginning to end.
