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

During the initial scene where Sergeant Major Volkom meets Connor Mead, Volom complains there were never any films made about the Korean War. This is incorrect. There were numerous films made, including a major Korean-made film released in the USA. (Four American-made Korean War films were Pork Chop Hill staring Gregory Peck, The Steel Helmet staring Gene Evans, Fixed Bayonets! starring Richard Basehart and Gene Evans, and MASH with Donald Sutherland, both the inspiration for M*A*S*H and based on a book written by an in-theater MASH doctor. The major Korean-made film released in the USA was Tae Guk Gi: The Brotherhood of War. As a veteran of the Korean War, Sergeant Major Volkom would certainly have been aware of at least the first film, "Pork Chop Hill" (1959). As an actor who has been in the business since 1962, Robert Forster himself may even have been aware of the Gregory Peck film.) He also states the war "lost more men than 'Nam." Actually, it was around 2,000 less. See more »

Quotes

Connor Mead: I want to ask you something, when did casual sex become a crime?
Vonda Volkom: [laughs]
Connor Mead: Really? I mean, now a days being a single means, what? You've lost your way? That something is missing? Never mind that every night I swim in a lake of sex, and they fall asleep in each others arms, spooning.
Vonda Volkom: Connor, spooning is nice.
Connor Mead: Yeah, not as nice as forking.

Simple, plain and corny
1 June 2009 | by barrys82See all my reviews

Ghosts of Girlfriends past is the typical movie about a man in love with his all-time girl friend but he can't accept it and becomes the man that scores with all the women and dumps them the day after. A weird adaptation to Charles Dickens A Christmas Carol, I don't know if he'll be pleased to see what these people did to his novel. Its a romantic comedy that can take you away a few laughs. The idea of a story like this was interesting but they turn it to a very corny movie with a poor plot. The cast is good, the performances not so much, Matthew McConaughey is good but unfortunately he is repeating the same role over and over and its beginning to bore, Michael Douglas is great and so funny but I think he is being wasted with so little participation and Jennifer Garner is convincing enough in her role as Jenny Perotti. But not everything is bad, for example, the locations are great, the landscapes are beautiful. And I like the soundtrack, the 80's music is very cool. In conclusion, it is entertaining and enjoyable but not for a movie theater, please wait for it until it is on DVD.
