More Info:
  • Andrea Gronvall

    Writers Jon Lucas and Scott Moore steal from the best, gleefully cribbing from "A Christmas Carol" to fashion a screenplay with heart and sharp one-liners.

    Chicago Reader Full Review
  • Owen Gleiberman

    The movie is cheesy, tacky, and gimmicky. But as directed by Mark Waters (Mean Girls), it's also prankish and inventive enough to be kind of fun.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Michael Phillips

    Despite my McConaughey resistance I got more guilty chuckles from Ghosts of Girlfriends Past than "Failure to Launch" or "Four Christmases."

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Lou Lumenick

    The season's first genuine guilty pleasure.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Carrie Rickey

    In terms of character, McConaughey is the toxin and Garner the antitoxin. It's not exactly chemistry, but as pharmacology it's effective.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • James Berardinelli

    Lacks the kind of forceful, attention-grabbing chemistry that elevates a movie in this genre from a passable diversion to a lasting source of entertainment.

    ReelViews Full Review
  • Roger Moore

    Ghosts finishes well, and the familiar McConaughey heel-grows-a-heart story arc is engaging.

    Charlotte Observer Full Review
  • Rick Kisonak

    Likely to exceed expectations.

    Film Threat Full Review
  • Betsy Sharkey

    An amusingly sentimental whiff of a romantic comedy.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Roger Ebert

    It's not particularly funny to hear women described and valued exclusively in terms of their function as disposable sexual partners. A lot of Connor's dialogue is just plain sadistic and qualifies him as that part of an ass it shares with a doughnut.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Mick LaSalle

    Has some laughs - more than a few thanks to Michael Douglas as a dead swinger (the movie's Jacob Marley) - and some moments of tenderness, too.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Perry Seibert

    It's the movie equivalent of fast food -- nobody needs this to be good, just adequate. And Ghosts of Girlfriends Past is nothing if not thoroughly adequate.

    TV Guide Full Review
  • Claudia Puig

    Ghosts can't make up its mind whether it wants to be a racy raunchfest or a sentimental celebration of soul mates. So it ends up being a sappy, sleazy hybrid.

    USA Today Full Review
  • Ty Burr

    Ghosts is better-than-average McConaughey swill, but not by much - that's its pleasure and its curse.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • M. E. Russell

    The dialogue is almost primitive at times, almost every female character is an idiot and McConaughey grossly overplays the bachelor-sleazeball antics at the beginning.

    Portland Oregonian Full Review
  • Todd McCarthy

    Mostly clunky and vaguely unsavory.

    Variety Full Review
  • Scott Tobias

    At least Douglas has a good time bringing the smarminess that McConaughey so studiously avoids.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Kirk Honeycutt

    The movie clumps through one witless if not wince-evoking sequence after another without the relief of laughter.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Peter Rainer

    I guarantee you, if Charles Dickens were alive today, he might well be writing movies but he sure as shootin' wouldn't have written "Ghosts."

    Christian Science Monitor Full Review
  • Kimberley Jones

    Ghosts indeed: This romantic comedy by name alone attempts to make funny – not to mention culturally relevant – the kind of swinging-dick misogyny that went out of fashion years ago.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Peter Travers

    Never comes as close as spitting distance to a laugh.

    Rolling Stone Full Review
  • Staff (Not credited)

    We don't needlessly hate on the romantic comedies, but this one takes the corniness and predictability of the genre to a whole new level.

    Premiere Full Review
  • Liam Lacey

    Isn't just ordinarily lame, it easily exceeds any normal requirements for witless sleaze.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Staff (Not credited)

    Douglas is the only one who looks like he's actually having fun with the dim-witted script.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Joe Morgenstern

    A bizarre conflation of chick flick and "A Christmas Carol."

    Wall Street Journal Full Review
  • Manohla Dargis

    A junky-looking romantic comedy that’s neither remotely romantic nor passably comic.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Jan Stuart

    The relentless vulgarities in Ghosts of Girlfriends Past would be almost tolerable if they were amusing, but Mark Waters's direction is so tentative that the film's single laugh happens more than an hour in.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Michael Sragow

    Ghosts of Girlfriends Past displays nary a wisp of life, let alone an afterlife.

    Baltimore Sun Full Review
  • Melissa Anderson

    Above all, it will make you long for a day when studio movies about relationships feel like they are by and for adults who have actually been in one.
