Editorial Reviews

Based on Alain De Botton's international bestseller On Love, this clever and innovative romantic comedy directed by Julian Kemp is an anything-but-ordinary story about love and our addiction to it.

Brendan Patricks stars as Duncan, a man whose roller-coaster journey in and out of love has taken him to an emotional rock bottom. He just can t understand what, or who, has caused all of is relationships to fail. He s pretended not to care about ex-boyfriends that haven t quite disappeared, disastrously attempted to give fashion advice, and even been the first to utter those three special words - but nothing seems to work out. In a last-ditch effort to figure out where it all went wrong, Duncan takes a ride through the memories of his last five relationships. Each of his ex-girlfriends, quirky and idiosyncratic in their own charming ways, leave Duncan even more perplexed about love than the last. With a cast including Cecile Cassel, Naomie Harris (Pirates of the Caribbean, 28 Days Later), and Jane March (Clash of the Titans), Duncan discovers with delicious wit and charm just how modern urban relationships go wrong.

Bonus Features: An Interview with Director Julian Kemp and the Cast; Commentary with Director Julian Kemp; Behind the Scenes; Special Effects Compilation; Extended Probability Sequence; Delete Scenes and Other Silliness

"My Last Five Girlfriends" takes that most reliable of genres, the romantic comedy, and elevates it to amazing heights of intelligence and creativity. For this particular story, love is not a state of mind but rather an analytical process, one that can be so confusing, complicated, and heartbreaking that it ultimately may not be worth the time and effort. Duncan (Brendan Patricks), a British structural engineer, is at a point where he's desperate to know how love is supposed to work, his last five relationships having ended rather unpleasantly. What went wrong? If he had done something differently, would that have changed any of the outcomes? He narrates the film not as a reflection but more as a deconstruction, as if to say that, although he has already participated in the events, he's no closer to understanding them, and in all likelihood never will be.

That doesn't make this movie a tragedy, although it does imply, with great frustration, that no matter how many times one has loved and lost, there's no insight one can apply to a new relationship after the previous relationship's failure. Each of Duncan's girlfriends is unique both in back story and personality, which may account for this problem. Then again, it's quite possible that, for all the analyzing he does, Duncan is remarkably imperceptive. How else to explain his failure to find the right woman five time in a row?

Adapted from Alain de Botton's novel "Essays in Love," this movie is an astonishing achievement in tone and illustration, the ups and downs of Duncan's love life cleverly displayed through a whimsical series of symbols, visual gags, imagined scenarios, and cinematic tricks that in any other film might have seemed obvious. As he flies home, for example, he meets girlfriend No.

Easily one of the most inventive romantic comedies I've seen since "(500) Days of Summer," the British charmer "My Last Five Girlfriends" was a terrific surprise! Whereas the unique appeal of "(500) Days of Summer" came from a clever chronological scrambling of a relationship timeframe, the allure of "My Last Five Girlfriends" also stems from a bit of narrative deconstruction. With tongue firmly in cheek, some philosophical ramblings give way to a rich and rewarding film built around some magnificent visual set pieces. Julian Kemp's lively adaptation of Alain de Botton's novel "On Love" manages to adhere to feel of the book while really punching up the comedic elements through a deft use of fantasy sequences and special effects. Seriously, Kemp's stylized vision of his protagonist's mind is absolutely hysterical! And when is the last time you saw a romantic comedy where the DVD boasts a special feature about the visual effects?

"My Last Five Girlfriends" introduces Duncan. Within the first minutes of the film, we find out that Duncan has been unlucky enough in love to serious contemplate suicide. And, as you might expect when considering the end, Duncan (a spot-on Brendan Patricks) takes a moment to reflect on the failed relationships that have brought him to this point of crisis. These internal musings lead us through the literal amusement park in his mind. Each of the five segments (well there are five girlfriends--you got that from the title, right?) is rendered with delicious comic sight gags. The situations of falling into and out of infatuation will be easily identifiable to anyone who has been in love--the film just puts them into a smart visual perspective.

I saw this film in New York at the Tribeca Film Festival and was completely surprised. I was expecting a chick-flick and this is so totally not that! It's told from the dude's point of view and at times is almost a documentary. My girlfriend broke a rib laughing during the red shoe sequence. The hero Duncan goes through his last 5 (yes 5) girlfriends and looks at where it all went wrong. This is a great comedy and date film with some bizarre visual moments that stay with you long after the film has finished. My girlfriend seemed to like me more after the film - ha ha.

I had mixed feelings about this movie. On the one hand, it's got a few flashes or genuine creativity. At one point, the movie replaces an otherwise boring narration about a girl's history with Barbie doll animation. Still, I never really bought Duncan's (Brendan Patricks) character or his situation. All guys have had trouble finding the love of their life, but his life doesn't seem particularly bad or abnormal. In fact, he seems to go overboard in otherwise somewhat normal situations. The girls themselves are also fairly unlikeable characters. Some of them are good looking, but have fairly superficial personalities. I guess they're partially a victim of the movie's having to go through so many girlfriends in such a short time.

Three stars because Brendan Patricks is cute; this character could easily be EXTREMELY annoying, but he never is, not for one second.

The theme park gimmick is sort of clever, and the red boots are hilarious. I laughed out loud. Otherwise this movie is mostly tiresome and occasionally irritating - especially the WAY-TOO-LONG final section with Naomie Harris.

But then I'm gay; I like women, and I admire them a lot, but the notion of being attracted to them sexually is weird. I can usually get around that hurdle when watching straight movies, but for some reason I couldn't with this one.
