Ghosts of Girlfriends Past

Mattew McConaughey, Jennifer Garner, Michael Douglas, Emma Stone

Beautiful, successful, womanising Connor Mead threatens to ruin his brother’s wedding with his overt cynicism of relationships and marriage. His dead uncle (Douglas) visits him to tell him that he will visit girlfriends past, present and future in order to learn something about himself and love. During this lesson, Connor finds that the one woman he loves, and always has, is the one he may lose.

Here is another film to add to the list of ‘bad boy makes good’ movies. McConaughey and Garner do a good job with their roles, as do Douglas and Stone. But it’s not a pick of the bunch.

There should probably be another romantic comedy theme to add to my list of common themes – films about men who behave badly at weddings. Or perhaps, films about men who are dubious about love and marriage but as it turns out it’s only because they had their heart broken. Oh the lists can go on and on!!
