Ghosts of Girlfriends Past, starring Matthew McConaughey and Jennifer Garner, is now available on DVD. And Kidzworld has the inside scoop.

Connor Mead wasn’t always the womanizing jerk he is today. But one heartbreak and years of following in his player-of-an-uncle’s footsteps has made him the world’s biggest heartbreaker.


Brotherly Advice

Connor shows up at his brother Paul’s wedding rehearsal, hoping to talk him out of taking the plunge. “It’s you and me against the world,” Connor tells Paul. But he doesn’t realize that his brotherly advice is extreme misguided. That is, until he meets the ghost of his uncle in the bathroom.


Three Ghosts

Connor’s Uncle Wayne gives him a word of advice: “don’t live your life like I did.” While the single, swingers lifestyle may seem glamorous, it loses its appeal in death. Uncle Wayne tells Connor that over the next 24 hours, he’ll be visit be three ghosts: the ghosts of girlfriends past, present and future.


Jenny

The ghost of girlfriends past brings Connor back to his childhood, beginning with his first crush and true love, Jenny (Jennifer Garner). But when Connor froze up at the junior high Spring Fling, he missed his chance to be with Jenny. The ghost then reminds him how his days of womanizing began and evolved.


A Lonely End

The ghost of girlfriends present reveals his most recent breakups—three girls he callously dumped at the same time over a conference call. Finally the ghost of girlfriends future shows him what his future will look like if he doesn’t change his womanizing ways. Now it’s up to Connor to fix his mistakes, starting with the most recent, which could potentially end his brother’s engagement.


The Bottom Line

Ghosts of Girlfriends Past seems like it was written for Matthew McConaughey. He plays the arrogant heartbreaker perfectly. Unfortunately, the film is extremely typical and predictable, mostly because the plot mimics the classic Christmas tale, A Christmas Carol.
