The Ghosts of Girlfriends Past Reviews

Neil Pond
American Profile

This flawed, fractured fairy tale fails to scare up many chuckles or much charm. As Ebenezer Scrooge himself might say, "Bah, humbug!"

Cinematical

A parade of clumsy slapstick, unerring homophobia, and Big Fat Life Lessons.

Reel Film Reviews

As superficial and melodramatic as one might've expected...

Christopher Smith
Bangor Daily News (Maine)

A deluge of dim jokes and rote romantic interludes between Matthew McConaughey and Jennifer Garner that are intended to recall Charle's Dickens' "A Christmas Carol." God help us all.

What Would Toto Watch?

Matthew McConaughey proves better than the material put before him in the intermittently intriguing Ghosts of Girlfriends Past

Aisle Seat

Ideally, you want to see the male and female leads end up together in a romantic comedy; if not, it all starts to become kind of creepy.

John J. Puccio
Movie Metropolis

Although there are some sweetly sentimental moments, they are not nearly enough to redeem what is otherwise a fairly mean-spirited film.

Rich Cline
Shadows on the Wall

A watchable pastiche of A Christmas Carol, this rom-com resorts to corny slapstick a bit too often but also manages to find moments of real resonance

Sean McBride
Sean the Movie Guy

The comedy is reduced to pratfalls and embarrassing situations, and much of it comes across as just mean-spirited.

Sean Means
Salt Lake Tribune

Director Mark Waters finds the movie's laughs in the supporting players: Michael Douglas, Emma Stone and Lacey Chabert.

Killer Movie Reviews

The only thing of note is that its star, Matthew McConaughey, doesn't remove his shirt

Richard Knight
Windy City Times

A slick, standard Hollywood studio produced romantic comedy that utilizes a clever conceit and some expert supporting comedic performances to help it squeak by.

Time Out Sydney

Quirky supporting characters enliven this by-the-numbers romcom.

The Age (Australia)

McConaughey too once showed promise, but here he seems to be auditioning for a bad sitcom, while Garner misuses her gawky sincerity.

David Stratton
At the Movies (Australia)

I suppose your reaction to the film will depend to some extent on whether or not you find Matthew McConaughey a charmer. I don't, so I found Connor repulsive with no redeeming features.

SFX Magazine

Let's be clear: this is trash, not very funny and sometimes jaw-droppingly insulting.

The ending does a big flip flop, but if you go in with low expectations, you'll have a hard not laughing in Ghosts of Girlfriends Past.

ReelTalk Movie Reviews

'Ghosts of Girlfriends Past' lacks energy and originality, plus the characters are too shallow to care about. But Michael Douglas is delightful.

Not as bad as you might think, but...

MovieTime, ABC Radio National

There are many ways you can deal with the hypocrisies and faults of the male libido; Fellini spent a career exploring this terrain (think 8 1/2, City of Women) but there is nothing interesting on the subject here.
