Sexist and rediculous!
Verified purchase
What a bunch of sexist hoo-hah! Women with no self-respect throwing themselves at a wrinkled, fake tanned long haired objectifying idiot. But in Hollyweird, this is entertainment! Lord! Okay this movie is a ghost of past, present and future production AND a true challenge to see how far into the movie one can get before running to the toilet to throw chunks! The toilet is just where this movie should go. None of the Actors can save this mess. However it ended well if not believable. Wasted my money but may learn my lesson. What I did like was the music. Men may like the movie as there are lot's of boob scenes but as a straight woman, I was not impressed. PASS!

Great movie
Verified purchase
It’s a movie if your a Matthew McConaughey fan you’ll love this movie.
This is a guilty pleasure for me. Matthew McConaughey is a great actor and plays the role of Connor Mead with perfection.
I cannot think of another actor who could play the role as well as Matthew.

Fun romcom, bit cheesy at times
Verified purchase
Yup it's cheesy but I guess sometimes that is half the fun? I enjoyed this on a night when I was home without hubby. Matthew McConaughey's character is a bit uni-dimensional and trite, but Jennifer Garner plays it really well and I enjoyed the movie overall, despite seeing every part coming.

And the Oscar goes to...

If pre-artistic integrity and rampant misogynist Matthew McConaughey is your favorite Matthew McConaughey, then this is the movie for you. It is about a man learning that he is scared of love and has been filling that void by, well, uh.... filling.. uh.... tons of promiscuous sex. It won't make you cry tears of holy matrimony, but it is for sure the beginning of that terrible moment in the late 2000's where being a pick-up "artist" was a literal day job. Wow. Alright, alright, alrighty then.

Fun Approach
Verified purchase
A fun approach to Dicken's "Christmas Carol", which doesn't happen at Christmastime. Not necessarily appropriate for all ages, but ok for adults that are a little open-minded.

A friend recommended this movie to me. I rented it standard definition and 1.99 was too much! Talk about cliche'. Boring. Basic plot. User guy and the woman he wronged. Deep down he's always loved her, but he was wounded and unfathered in his past so when he finally gets to reconnect with his childhood sweetheart and makes it to her bed, he can't handle her love and he runs. She's always pined away for him and years later when they meet up again at his brother's wedding, she calls him on his crap and he turns over a new leaf---all for her---all after seeing the light through the ghosts of girlfriends past. Ugh. Save your money and your time. If you want a romantic comedy, pick something else.

You must like Matthew McConaughey. It's his movie.
Verified purchase
OK. There is no surprise in a movie like this. The boy and girl will live happily ever at the end. But to get to that end, this movie takes the viewer on a fun journey of ghosts, middle school and brotherly affection. Unlike a lot of rom-com's, Ghosts of Girlfriends Past follows mostly the male lead. So it's Matthew McConaughey's movie, and that's alright, alright, alright if you like him as an actor. You'll see a lot of him in this movie; he is in almost every scene. The Jennifer Garner character is really there to witness and legitimize his transformation from cad to committed. I liked it a lot, but I am a sap for romance.
