Ghosts Of Girlfriends Past

Matthew McConaughey stars as freewheeling womanising bachelor gearing up for his little brother’s wedding, when things get a whole lot more interesting. In the spirit of Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol, a ghost (Michael Douglas) visits him and takes him back through his romantic history, forcing him to confront his feelings about the one that got away (Jennifer Garner). But will that be enough for true love to prevail?

Mostly clunky and vaguely unsavory.

“I was always attracted to assholes!” says Jennifer Garner in a film that both celebrates and slates its Neanderthal hero. As much as you’d love to hate it, this jaunty supernatural romcom remains a polished, amusing, surprisingly sweet diversion.

A junky-looking romantic comedy that’s neither remotely romantic nor passably comic.

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.

Scrooge is replaced by a serial womaniser in this rehash of A Christmas Carol.

An amusingly sentimental whiff of a romantic comedy.

The movie clumps through one witless if not wince-evoking sequence after another without the relief of laughter.
