The Ghosts of Girlfriends Past Reviews

September 29, 2011
This flawed, fractured fairy tale fails to scare up many chuckles or much charm. As Ebenezer Scrooge himself might say, "Bah, humbug!"

December 17, 2009
A parade of clumsy slapstick, unerring homophobia, and Big Fat Life Lessons.
December 7, 2009
As superficial and melodramatic as one might've expected...
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
September 27, 2009
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.

Matthew McConaughey proves better than the material put before him in the intermittently intriguing Ghosts of Girlfriends Past
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
September 17, 2009
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/4
September 12, 2009
Although there are some sweetly sentimental moments, they are not nearly enough to redeem what is otherwise a fairly mean-spirited film.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/10
May 28, 2009
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
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
May 25, 2009
The comedy is reduced to pratfalls and embarrassing situations, and much of it comes across as just mean-spirited.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4
May 22, 2009
Director Mark Waters finds the movie's laughs in the supporting players: Michael Douglas, Emma Stone and Lacey Chabert.

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

May 15, 2009
A slick, standard Hollywood studio produced romantic comedy that utilizes a clever conceit and some expert supporting comedic performances to help it squeak by.
May 15, 2009
Quirky supporting characters enliven this by-the-numbers romcom.

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

May 15, 2009
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.

May 12, 2009
Let's be clear: this is trash, not very funny and sometimes jaw-droppingly insulting.

May 11, 2009
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5
May 10, 2009
'Ghosts of Girlfriends Past' lacks energy and originality, plus the characters are too shallow to care about. But Michael Douglas is delightful.
May 9, 2009
Not as bad as you might think, but...

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.
