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!"
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
April 30, 2009
The potential is here for a comedy that could have been hilarious. But the screenplay spaces out some undeniably funny lines in too much plot business, and Matthew McConaughey, while admirably villainous as a lecher, is not convincing as a charmer.

The Dickens elements elevate Ghosts of Girlfriends Past above the level of pure formula; unfortunately, the presence of McConaughey in full sleaze mode makes it difficult to like this film's Scrooge, even after his redemption occurs.

Matthew McConaughey doesn't have a ghost of a chance in this mirthless romantic comedy that's anything but ROMANTIC.

Not as deep as Matthew McConaughey's dimples.

McConaughey's self-satisfied and oleaginous performance scrapes away the trace amounts of charm the film has to offer.

April 30, 2009
A bizarre conflation of chick flick and A Christmas Carol.
December 17, 2009
A parade of clumsy slapstick, unerring homophobia, and Big Fat Life Lessons.
May 1, 2009
There are a few laughs in Ghosts of Girlfriends Past, to be sure; you can even hear them over the sound of Charles Dickens spinning in his grave.

Kicking off the summer with this flick I was hoping for more sizzle, but wound up with a lot fizzle.

April 27, 2009
As written by Jon Lucas and Scott Moore and directed by Mark Waters, the movie clumps through one witless if not wince-evoking sequence after another without the relief of laughter.

This rom/com gave me nightmares.

When the movie is not immersed in the main character's subconscious it's almost unspeakably bad.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4

Even if you're willing to check your brain at the door and suspend your disbelief for 100 minutes, Ghosts of Girlfriends Past has just a few fleeting moments of hilarity, but ultimately falls flat as comedy, romance and drama...
Full Review | Original Score: 4.25/10

All those snappy supporting performers take the focus off the movie's romantic-comedy trappings.

This movie I think really did the impossible. It makes Failure To Launch look like The Thin Man.
May 4, 2009
It's a tired premise with some even weaker gags.
