Movie synopsis

Mark Waters (MEAN GIRLS, JUST LIKE HEAVEN) directs this spin on A CHRISTMAS CAROL starring Matthew McConaughey as Connor Mead, a womanizing photographer with major commitment issues. Begrudgingly attending the wedding of his little brother, Paul (Breckin Meyer), in snowy Newport, Rhode Island, the caddish Connor encounters Jenny (Jennifer Garner), a former love he hurt in the past. He also runs into the ghost of his Uncle Wayne (Michael Douglas), the playboy who essentially raised the two boys and whom Connor has tried to emulate. Wayne tells his nephew that he’ll be visited by three ghosts over the course of the evening: the ghosts of girlfriends past, present, and future. Reviewing his love life while simultaneously attending his brother’s wedding weekend leads to some comical moments as Connor tries to reconcile the two. He also has to fend off Jenny's potential new love (Daniel Sunjata) if he wants to win her back.McConaughey has the heartbreaker swagger down pat, and proves in this film that he can make any character charming. Garner brings a vulnerability to Jenny, who can’t seem to help caring about the roguish Connor despite her best efforts. Douglas is fun as the ghost of Uncle Wayne, keeping his 1970s swinger mentality while attempting to guide his nephew away from making the same mistakes he made. Meyer and his bride, played by Lacey Chabert, are an interesting casting choice considering how small in physical stature they both are compared to McConaughey and Garner--and just how much younger they and the rest of the wedding party look. Noureen DeWulf appears as Connor’s beleaguered assistant, and Emma Stone is amusing as the ghost of girlfriends past, decked out in '80s garb and perpetually stuck at age 16.

Editorial reviews

"GHOSTS OF GIRLFRIENDS PAST is an amusingly sentimental whiff of a romantic comedy....There is an actual cautionary tale here."

A Good Romantic Comedy

Created: 22/09/09
Matthew McConaughey (Fools Gold and many more) plays Connor Mead, a womanizing playboy who's philosophy in life is to make love, not fall in love.

When he is invited to his brothers wedding he runs into his lifelong friend Jenny (Jennifer Garner) and the ghost of his uncle whom he has modeled his life after (Played by Michael Douglas).

On the same premise as the movie Scrooge, Conner is shown his failed life by three ghosts.

The premise of the movie is an old story and I was expecting to be disappointed, however it turns out that McConaughey and Garner bring a quality to the movie that made it entertaining.

I recommend anyone who wants to see a good comedy / romance film to go ahead and watch this one.

Ghosts of Girlfriends Past

Created: 19/11/10
Ghosts of Girlfriends Past is a 2009 American romantic comedy film whose plot is based on Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol. Mark Waters directed a script by Jon Lucas and Scott Moore. Filming spanned February 19, 2008 to July 2008 in Massachusetts with stars Matthew McConaughey, Jennifer Garner and Emma Stone.[2] The film was released on May 1, 2009.[3]

Ghosts of Girlfriends Past 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 movie shares the traditional plot points from the book.

Ghosts Of Girlfriends Past Review

Created: 22/09/09
This movie surprised me, yeah it had all the romantic comedy trappings but this seemed to have a message about the human condition. How our relationships mold into what we are. The take off on "A Christmas Carol" works more than I thought it would. If you like Matthew and Jennifer you already now what to expect form these two. It was a treat seeing Michael Douglas back playing Uncle Wayne the ladies man. It give this movie a 7 out of 10 on the overall movie scale but a 8 out of 10 on the romantic comedy scale. Most movies like this start off good and lose me towards the end, this one had me from the beginning.
