Ghosts of Gitlfriends Past
When he attends his younger brother's wedding, playboy Connor (Matthew McConaughey) is troubled to discover that the ghosts of his many girlfriends have come to give him a piece of their mind and teach him a thing or two about true love. As the apparitions visit him, he rediscovers old feelings for the first love of his life. Mark Waters directs this delightful romantic comedy also starring Jennifer Garner and Michael Douglas.
a coworker of mine (back when i was still working) told me about this movie and told me it was horrible - i didnt find that, i thought it was entertaining, familar (a christmas carol - 3 ghosts will visit you etc) and relatable in a way. Connors character is the perfect male schvoinois pig, its almost great, the one thing I dont like about the movie is that they are portraying that Connor has this side to him where he does love and respect women and really cares and without ruining the movie for anyone thats all im going to say but once you see the movie you will understand what I'm about to say: I think its these kind of movies that create the wrong images in womens minds. "hes an ass, but he'll be different for me" "i can change him" "i'll be different" and eventually they guys do change, but, (and this is pulling for 'hes just not that into you') you cant count on being the exception, you have to always pretend that you are the rule. I didnt think this movie was a total lost casue though I enjoyed it.
