I was expecting this movie to be better, since Matthew was in it, but it wasn't. I think what made it unpleasant, was Emma Stone. She was more than a bit too much. Jennifer Garner & Matthew did alright, but it could've been better if they didn't include the obnoxious Emma Stone's character. They could've done that part a different way.

Review Remember Harry, the Rat With Women? This time his name is Connor Mead, but he's still a rat. A modern Scrooge, who believes marriage is humbug, but is taught otherwise by the ghosts of girlfriends past, present and future, and one who spans all of those periods. Just like Scrooge, he's less interesting after he reforms...Matthew McConaughey plays Connor as a rich and famous Vanity Fair photographer whose ambition is to have sex with every woman he meets, as soon as possible. Sometimes this leads to a logjam. Impatient to sleep with his latest quarry, a model who just allowed an apple to be shot off her head with an arrow, Connor actually arranges an online video chat session to break up with three current girlfriends simultaneously, but is big-heaMichael Douglas is widely said to have modeled his hair, eyeglass frames and general appearance on the noted womanizer Bob Evans, but actually he reminded me more of Kirk Douglas playing Bob Evans. It's an effective performance either way you look at it...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. Just this weekend a new Michael Caine movie is opening, which makes me remember his Alfie, a performance that is to lechers as Brando is to godfathers...Maybe the movie's problem runs a little deeper. It's not particularly funny to hear women described and valued exclusively in terms of their function as disposable sexual partners. A lot of Connor's dialogue is just plain sadistic and qualifies him as that part of an ass it shares with a doughnut.

Review What happens when Hollywood marries Charles Dickens, that wacky 19th century romantic comedy scribe, to Matthew McConaughey, that wacky naked bongo drum player? To begin with, great expectations should be curbed. The result is not as good as it should be... but neither is it as bad as it could have been. The idea behind Ghosts of Girlfriends Past is at least intriguing: take a standard-order romantic comedy and overlay it with a popular classic (something that happens with Shakespeare on a regular basis). 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...Ghosts of Girlfriends Past is being used as counterprogramming for the testosterone-heavy Wolverine, and it will doubtless find favor with its target audience (at least those who aren't put off by the lead actor, who splits female viewers down the middle in terms of his appeal). The script is smarter and better focused than that of last year's early summer romantic comedy, Made of Honor, but it nevertheless lacks the kind of forceful, attention-grabbing chemistry that elevates a movie in this genre from a passable diversion to a lasting source of entertainment. As for the Dickens element, the film lacks the kinds of in-jokes that would make this a rewarding experience. It borrows the skeleton from "A Christmas Carol," but the rest is an invention of director Mark Waters and his screenwriters, and the meat on the bones doesn't satisfy as it should. Hard times for romantic comedy lovers, indeed.
