Storyline

Connor Mead, a successful fashion photographer and a Lothario keen on casual sex, goes to his younger brother's wedding to convince him not to marry. He arrives at his dead uncle's estate during the rehearsal the night before the wedding; he starts in, taking his brother aside, trashing marriage. Later in the men's room, his uncle, who taught Connor all he knows about women, appears to him, confesses to have been wrong, and tells Connor that three ghosts will visit him that night: the ghosts of girlfriends past, present, and future. Connor has already set the breakup in motion. Can he learn anything from his life and fix what he's broken? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Goofs

When Connor goes to his prom dance we can hear "The Safety Dance" by Men Without Hats setting the action after 1982. After the prom, Connor goes to with his uncle to a place where we can hear "Get Down Tonight" by KC & The Sunshine Band (released in 1975). Approximately two years later, Connor says "I got the new Poison," and shortly thereafter, "Nothin' But a Good Time" (released in May 1988) begins playing. Therefore we can assume that the dance was in 1986 and there were no anachronisms present. See more »

I really enjoyed it!
13 May 2009 | by See all my reviews

I payed my money and saw this movie expecting a laugh and to leave with a smile on my face. I wasn't expecting Oscar acting, a great storyline or something that would leave a lasting impression on me.

The performances were good, I especially enjoyed Michael Douglas's glam OTT character. The main actors also impressed and I was drawn into their romance as the film went on. So much so that I shed a little tear at the end.

When I left the cinema I was smiling and during the movie I laughed out loud along

with many other people. I got what I paid for and had a good night.
