By Kathy W TOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on May 4, 2009
Just saw this one in the theater and it was a great flick with a lot of laughs. I thoroughly enjoyed it!

In a take-off of the Charles Dickens' Christmas Carol, the ghosts of past girlfriends and other voluntary spirits, attempt to help a cold-hearted womanizer bring back the sensitivity and love in his life.

We begin the plot with the much sought-after bachelor ladies' man, in-demand schmoozer, professional photographer Conner (McConahey). He loves all the ladies, every one he can get into, so to speak. As we watch love 'em and leave 'em Conner break the ladies' hearts, we begin to think of him as a loveable schmuck. Even though we want to slap him, there is something about him. We follow him to his brother's wedding at the country home he grew up, in a castle-sized estate. We find out that his parents died young, leaving 7 year old Conner to help raise his 2 year old brother. Both were raised by Uncle Wayne (Michael Douglas) at the mansion.

Young Conner grew up with young Jennie (Jennifer Garner). They seemed to be best friends but fell short on the boyfriend/girlfriend end of the stick when they got into their teens. Conner seemed afraid of being hurt and, under the expert tutilage of Uncle Wayne, turned into a ladies man.

Showing up at the wedding and voicing his extreme cynicism about love and marriage, Conner offends everyone. He is soon visited by the now deceased Uncle Wayne who tells him to mend his evil ways. To help Conner out, Wayne warns him of upcoming visits from 3 spirits, just like Jacob Marley and Ebineezer Scrooge.

And so it begins. As I said, it is often laugh-out-loud funny, coupled with sincerety and love. There were times I found a tear or two in my eyes. I thoroughly enjoyed the movie and would certainly want to see it again. It's a feel-good movie and enjoyable to watch the sincerity and love return to this man's life.

I really wanted to love this movie. The idea and cast give it the potential to be a hilarious romantic comedy, but sadly, it isn't.
I love Matthew McConaughey in pretty much everything he's ever been in. He's a good actor, but I really didn't buy him as a charmer in this movie. I really couldn't see why the women were falling for him. He wasn't even slightly charming or likable. He was just a jerk. It made me feel like the writers of this movie thought all women were just idiots ready to fall into bed with anyone.
Jennifer Garner is another of my faves in other movies. She wasn't bad in this one, but it wasn't enough to save the movie.

One thing I did like about this movie was Lacey Chabert. She was very believable as the nervous bride to be. She was freaking out about every detail as many brides do and was a wreck. She gave us some comedic moments and was cute as a button.

I'm glad I only rented this movie from Netflix, so I'm only out an hour adn 40 minutes of my life rather than $20. If you really feel the need to see this movie, rent it before buying it.

I found this movie highly entertaining and one I wanted to add to my collection. Matthew McConaughey is a good actor and this movie is a parody of "A Christmas Carol" which focuses on an aging ladies man who looks back on his life and determines his love for a woman with whom he once had a meaningful relationship but let slip away. This is definitely a "feel good" movie with a happy ending. The type of movie one likes to watch over and over again.

I love most movies with Matthew M. in and combined with Jennifer Garner it was wonderful! If you're a fan of romantic comedies, whats not to love? I don't know why other people rated it poorly, it's not meant to be a deep and awe-inspiring movie, it's just a funny diversion from the normal christmas versions. I added it to my small pile of must have movies.

It was better than I thought it would be, but you will be able to tell what's going to happen pretty quickly & they used the 'Christmas Carol's' past, present & future ghost idea but changed it to past, present & future girlfriends. I like both actors McConaughey & Garner that's why I gave it a try. :-)

Are you looking for another version of "A Christmas Carol"? You know, that movie with that Scrooge dude? Look no further (unless you want to see a good movie). Matthew McConaughey plays the Scrooge character in this movie. But...wait a minute...didn't Scrooge suck in a "drop dead you vile human being" sort of way? MM, the horror (or should I say whore) of the movie is vile because he sexes women. A lot of women. Unapologetically. And while the women don't like the fact that he loves them and leaves them, well, they like his "fact" enough to want to let him continue to love them even if he will leave them. He's rich, good looking, and smiles a lot. And has a lot of sex. And apparently any woman is up for grabs as long as he thinks that she is not gay or currently married. MM, we're to believe, is a really unhappy individual because he doesn't believe in "true love" of the marriage variety. But the movie doesn't make him unlikable (and it doesn't want to). It doesn't make him a true Scrooge. Sure, he finds his "true love" by the end of the movie and is a changed man. So what? He's sexed up half of America and Europe at this point and because he's now off the market the ladies (in the wedding party) are going to have to look for their good lay with the geek squad. The redemption of the Scrooge character is flat and far off and there are a lot of other characters that need a lot of redeeming themselves.

This movie makes everyone in it look like a piece of crap (even the bride's mother who #1 doesn't take the slightest offense at MM grabbing and fondling her breasts at the wedding rehearsal--wish I could get away with that!--and #2 in blithely discussing everyone's sexual adventures with each other refers to the potential of having sex with MM as a "I could have worse" scenario). This is supposed to be a romantic comedy? It's insulting is what it is.

Unfortunately for us we like look at good looking people even if they're doing bad things.
