Ghosts of Girlfriends Past

Everyone knows what this movie is about.  It's about a guy who is a huge womanizer and lethario who "dates" every woman he meets and then the minute he feels like they are getting attached he leaves.  As is his nature or was up until recently, Matthew McConaughey, plays this part with expert precision.  The kind of acting that could only be possible if the actor cold draw from life experiences.  Well, Matthew, as much as I love you, and trust me I do, you were a classic womanizer.  Now that you have a child to set an example for, many times this does tame most men I mean can anyone say Colin Farrell?  Jennifer Garner is in top form and looks great.  Love Breckin Meyer as the brother and the ghosts of past, present, and future.  Will he get the woman he has loved since he was a child or will he continue to go through women faster than paper in a shredder?  Well you will have to watch and see.  The movie is cute.  If you have a friend that is acting like a butthead to women take him to this movie and maybe he will change his womanizing ways.  It is a good date move of course.  Your classic chick flick, but still fun enough for a guy to enjoy.  Worth the time.  I might wait for the DVD instead of paying full price.

** two stars for predictability.  Matthew is losing his cute southern boyishness as happens with all men as they age, so maybe playing the guy who won't settle down is not the part for him anymore.  Maybe he should do a movie where his character has more depth.  Not a complete waste of time.
