The Ghost of Girlfriends Past


I have been wanting to see this movie since I saw a preview of it. I finally got to see it the other night. I was disappointed. It wasn't as good as I thought it would be. It wasn't BAD, but it wasn't great either. It's hard to come by very good movies now a days. For those of you that have not watched it yet, it is a comedy about a bachelor that goes to his brother's wedding. While there,he is visited by the ghosts of his past girlfriends.

"Celebrity photographer Connor Mead loves freedom, fun and women... in that order. A committed bachelor who thinks nothing of breaking up with multiple women on a conference call, Connor's mockery of romance proves a real buzz-kill for his kid brother, Paul, and a houseful of well wishers on the eve of Paul's wedding. Just when it looks like Connor may single-handedly ruin the wedding, he is visited by the ghosts of his former jilted girlfriends, who take him on a revealing and hilarious odyssey through his failed relationships--past, present and future. Together they attempt to find out what turned Connor into such an insensitive jerk and whether there is still hope for him to find true love...or if he really is the lost cause everyone thinks he is."
