Ghosts of Girlfriends Past

Release date: 1 May 2009 (London, UK)

This silliness is the latest output from Matthew McConaughey, who just seems to have forgotten: 1) how to act, and 2) land himself in a good film. Frankly, I'm at a loss where to even begin to rate this blatantly unfunny rip off of Charles Dicken's A Christmas Carol. McConaughey stars as Connor Mead, a superstar photographer cum womanizer. On the eve of his brother Paul's (Breckin Meyer) wedding to bridezilla, Connor is visited by three former girlfriend ghosts who make him realize he had the hots for Jenny (an underused Jennifer Garner) all along. Even Michael Douglas stops by looking for a quick pay cheque playing Uncle Wayne, a sort of Hugh Hefener character that starts Connor on his path to ill repute.

With little comedy and even less romance this is a ghost of a film from the get go and gets my rating of 3 out of 10.
