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 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.

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

It actually has a couple of qualities few modern romantic comedies possess: it's romantic and quite funny.
May 1, 2009
It's smart, charming, sticky sweet in places, and it's got a bit more of a bite to it than most romantic comedies.

far better than the last two opening summer weekend counter-programming choices (Made of Honor last year and the dreadful Lucky You in 2007)

Kind of cute ... it never takes itself too seriously and is filled with deliciously cheesy lines.

I'm almost embarrassed to admit I found Ghosts of Girlfriends Past the season's first genuine guilty pleasure.

In a movie as spiritless and stupid as this, you can't help but look for clues you've hit bottom.

Conor has the flamboyant confidence of a matador, but McConaughey draws out the right amount of sleaze and tenderness to transform Conor from a bullfighter to a rodeo clown.

May 1, 2009
As a romcom, it's average, but as a Matthew McConaughey romcom, it's above average. If you're a low-expectations moviegoer, this one might surprise you.

Jennifer Garner is sweet and radiant as McConaughey's childhood friend and former lover; Lacey Chabert steals scenes as the woman marrying McConaughey's brother; and Robert Forster and Anne Archer are good as her parents.
May 1, 2009
For a comedy that doesn't require a lot of heavy thinking, it tries hard not to dumb things down too much, nor skimp on character or storytelling either.
Full Review | Original Score: 7/10

Ghosts of Girlfriends Past doesn't do Dickens any favors, but in a year that brought us Bride Wars, it'll do.

Matthew McConaughey stars, Emma Stone takes over.

You've got to love a movie that so eagerly assassinates its leading man's cuddly image, and which also manages to blow a wicked kiss to Fatal Attraction.

Ghosts of Girlfriends Past might be one of the most unoriginal films ever made, but it works anyway.
