Movie Review: Ghosts Of Girlfriends Past

All the film critics panned this film which is one of the reasons I had to watch it.

I'm not exactly sure why it was so unfavorably reviewed. Granted it wasn't a deep thoughtful movie. It was silly. A sexed up take on Dickens' Christmas Carol. Sure this type of story has been done over and over, but with a cast like this, the plot shouldn't even matter,
It wasn't the best of movies that I've seen but it wasn't the worst either, in fact, it was kind of cute. That kind of light, fluffy, romantic comedy that you need on a Saturday night when its pouring down rain. (Which it was doing last night)

Matthew McConaughey's Connor is just the perfect ladies man, wooing just about any woman in a skirt, ok, every woman in a skirt, but failing miserably when it comes to winning the one woman he really loves, Jennie (played by Jennifer Garner)

He's shown how he was led down the wrong path by the ghost of his Uncle Wayne, who was the man responsible for him becoming the idiot playboy that he is, the teenage girl he lost his virginity too, his assistant and a silent blonde beauty.

Its a feel good movie with eye candy for the ladies and the men. Its definitely better than what the critics have led us all to believe and its certainly worth a buck @ the dollar theater or to be queued in your Netflix.
