Ghosts of Girlfriends Past, a Mr. E Movie Review

(Run time: 100 min. - Directed by: Mark Waters - Starring: Matthew McConaughey, Jennifer Garner, Michael Douglas)

Mathew McConaughey and Jennifer Garner star in the romantic comedy Ghosts of Girlfriends Past. Ghosts of Girlfriends Past is a romantic re-telling of the holiday classic, A Christmas Carol and Director Mark Waters does a great job bringing us through this warm hearted love story.

Connor Meade is the hottest photographer in town. He's also the hottest lover in town! All the woman he comes in contact with seem to be throwing themselves at his feet. So much so that he has to break it of with three of his latest girlfriends, all at once, and...on a conference call with each other!

Connor's views on life and love continue to be revealed after he arrives at his brothers wedding, where he's the best man. Jenny, played by Jennifer Garner, is the bride's maid of honor and happens to be Connor's first love. She's the one that got away. During the rehearsal dinner Connor refuses to give the traditional toast or to be the wedding photographer and in addition proclaims for all to hear that love and marriage are a myth. Then, after a series of unfortunate events Connor starts to cause a riff in the wedding's plans that might not be repairable.

Once alone, Connor is visited by the man who taught him everything he knows about playing women, his idol Uncle Wayne, played by Michael Douglas. Uncle Wayne tell Connor that he will be visited by three women who hope to shed light on his womanizing ways before it's to late.

Matthew McConaughey is the perfect actor to portay the player Connor Mead. He's got all that one would need to play a believable chick-magnet all while having just enough character to be the sensitive type. Jennifer Garner was great as Matthew's co-star adn love interest. A cute and a very talented actress that too was believable as the "I've been hurt, but, never again" leading lady. As for Michael Douglas, I think he played the player role as if he pulled it from his own playbook. (Because he probably did!)

I can definately recomend Ghosts of Girlfriends Past to just about anyone wanting to sit down to a movie and be satisfied when the credits role. A great story, a great cast, and a good movie watching experience. Check it out!
