Ghosts of Girlfriends Past
Ghosts of Girlfriends Past is a 2009 American romantic comedy film whose plot is based loosely 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. The film was released on May 1, 2009. 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 film shares the traditional plot points from the book. Connor Mead (McConaughey), a professional photographer and womanizing bachelor, returns to his family's estate for the wedding of his brother Paul (Breckin Meyer) to Sandra Volkom (Lacey Chabert). There he encounters Jenny Perotti (Garner), a former girlfriend and childhood sweetheart who is serving as wedding planner. Connor offends most of the guests by declaring his disdain for romance and marriage and attempting to convince Paul not to go through with the wedding. That evening, he is visited by the ghost of his late uncle Wayne Mead (Michael

I tried watching this because I have had good experiences with romantic movies featuring both actors, but this movie was not good at all. Too sexual, and degrading to women. It's not even funny at all, just felt uncomfortable while watching it. Do not recommend it, not a feel-well movie at all.
This was an ok movie, Ill most likely watch it again. The beginning of the movie contains the bulk amount of sexual content, but it is a strong sexual movie.
I expected a lot more out of this. It was completely sexual and Matthew McConaughey's character is a player who treats women like dirt and all he cares about was sex. I expected a little sexual content but not near as much as this film had. The plot was weak and I wouldn't dream of watching it again.August 1st, 2012 · Details
