Movie Review: Ghost Of Girlfriends Past

Following from the screenings of the movie, here's the review.

Celebrity photographer Connor Mead (MATTHEW McCONAUGHEY) loves freedom, fun and women…in that order. A committed bachelor with a no-strings policy, he thinks nothing of breaking up with multiple women on a conference call while prepping his next date.

Connor’s brother Paul is more the romantic type. In fact, he’s about to be married. Unfortunately, on the eve of the big event, Connor’s mockery of romance proves a real buzz-kill for Paul, the wedding party and a houseful of well wishers—including Connor’s childhood friend Jenny (JENNIFER GARNER), the one woman in his life who has always seemed immune to his considerable charm.

Just when it looks like Connor may single-handedly ruin the wedding, he gets a wake-up call from the ghost of his late Uncle Wayne (MICHAEL DOUGLAS), the hard-partying, legendary ladies man upon whose exploits Connor has modeled his lifestyle. Uncle Wayne has an urgent message for his protégé, which he delivers through the ghosts of Connor’s jilted girlfriends—past, present and future—who take him on a revealing and hilarious odyssey through a lifetime of failed relationships.

Together, they will discover what turned Connor into such a shameless player and whether he has a second chance to find – and this time, keep – the love of his life.

The Good:
  • Hilarious, charming, touching and romantic movie. A great combination I must say. Didn't know it could blend it so well.
  • Storyline was amazing, every scene had its flow and moment. If you miss a minute of it, you miss a big moment of the movie!
  • Great unexpectations. What's that? Just when you think you know what's gonna happen next, well you're wrong! But the thing is, you're happy that you're wrong. It'll make you burst into laughter for sure.
  • Characters were portrayed well. The actors and actresses were definitely suitable for the role play.
The Bad:

Well, there's almost none to it. I find it the best so far! But I'd say it wouldn't be the best for the underage especially in Malaysia, as many teenagers these days tend to pick up the wrong things. Also, you have to catch this movie early, otherwise, when censorship plays its role, you'll miss out even more...

My Rating:
10.0 of 10.0
for humor cum romance movie.


A movie that you SHOULD NEVER EVER miss. Put it on top of your to-do list and get started with it. Fans of romance or humor, this is utmost suitable for you. My personal recommendation for a-MUST-watch movie!
