“Ghosts of Girlfriends Past” Plot Summary
A bachelor is haunted by the ghosts of his past girlfriends at his younger brother’s wedding.
Not a bad movie.
Not a bad movie, but I have to watch it another time. I thinks a second viewing will give me a better opinion. The story is a bit weak but Mat is a good actor and makes the film better. Mike D as uncle Wayne adds much comic relief. We see that Uncle Wayne should have never brought up kids, and this is the thesis which drives the story. I would wait and rent the movie or Video on demand it. The movie is not for kids. I would give Ghosts of girlfriends past a six out of ten. Maybe, I would like the movie on a second viewing. I found the characters a little to sleazy for my liking. There was not very likable character in this film.

Better than expected.
Ghost’s of girlfriend’s past was a film that I thought I was going to hate. The trailer it self looked retarded. Well, I saw it and it was actually a bit better than I expected it to be. I just had a few problems with the film. I didn’t like Matthew Mconaghay because he is a major whopping douche bag in this film. Also, I wasn’t quite convinced about the chemistry between Mconaghay and Jennifer Garner. Also, I thought that some of the moments in the film were a bit cheesy. But other than those things, I enjoyed Ghosts of girlfriend’s past. There were good performances by Emma Stone, and Michael Douglas. Douglas had a few unnecessary scenes. Anyways, I will get to the story plot. Mconaghay plays Connor Mead, a womanizer who travels down to his brother’s(Breckin Meyer) wedding. While there, he runs into his old fling Jenny(Jennifer Garner). While there, the ghost of his dead uncle(Michael Douglas) tells him that he will be visited by three ghosts. I am not going to go into any more of the plot, because if you have seen all of those Christmas carol films, you know what will happen. The film is also predictable. As I forgot to mention. I didn’t exactly love Ghosts of girlfriend’s past. But I will admit it, I liked it more than Fools Gold. Mconaghay is a jerk in this film. How can a film survive if you don’t even like the main character? It usually couldn’t, but like in A Christmas carol, the dude pulls through in the end. I think that the film was funny, though flawed. I think you should rent Ghosts of girlfriends past. Ghost’s of girlfriend’s past:**1/2 out of ****

a nice take on the A Christmas Carol story
Ghosts of Girlfriends Past, as the title suggests, is patterned from the classic A Christmas Carol with Ebenezer Scrooge turned into Connor Mead, a guy who gets a wakeup call to change his womanizing ways when he gets visited by four ghosts – his womanizing uncle whom he idolized, and the past, present, and future. Very much like the Christmas story indeed
The story happens during Connor’s younger brother Paul’s wedding, where he is the best man and his ex Jenny is a bridesmaid. As he sets out on yet another woman conquest, he instead finds himself face to face with a ghost of his past in the form of one of his exes, who brings him to his past while riding his bed ala magic carpet. There they dig into the reason why he transformed into this guy who believes that ‘Love is magical comfort food for the weak and uneducated. Yeah, it makes you feel all warm and relevant but in the end it leaves you weak, dependent and fat!’ He rediscovers the kid who loved Jenny right from the start and when heartbroken (because he was too damn slow in moving), turned to his womanizing uncle for advice on how never to feel that way again. His uncle told him that the power in a relationship lies in whoever cares less, and from then on, he always made sure to carry the power. He eventually finds his way back into Jenny’s arms but on the day that he found himself falling again, he remembered the words of his uncle and heeded them: ‘One day you’re going to wake up with some chick spooning and thinking about love and at that moment you have got to get up, not walk, you don’t get your shoes, you run the hell out of there because someday you’re gonna get crushed!’Back to the present, the second ghost in the form of his assistant makes Connor see what people really say about him when he’s not around. He makes a mess of things and just as he tries to fix them, he gets asked to leave, then he meets the unspeaking third ghost, who shows him the future where Jenny gets married to another guy, while his wailing goes unheeded. Then he sees his sad brother and follows Paul as he goes to someone’s funeral. It turns out to be Connor’s funeral, and the only people present are the priest and Paul. This is what awaits the man who runs away from love – he dies alone. This is the powerful message of the movie right here. Connor sums it up in the words he used to convince his brother’s fiancee not to run away: ‘You’ve got to risk love Sandra! I didn’t and look at me, I’m a lonely ghost of a man. It doesn’t mean that you’re never going to get hurt but the pain you feel will never compare to the regret that comes from walking away from love.’
