Ghosts of girlfriends past - Spoiler


I dont want my blog to be a stereotype and i like to post what ever i want so hear goes .........

Connor Mead is our hero. He is a photographer/womanizer/heart breaker and he is home for his silent unassuming (his only living relative) brother Paul's wedding to a somewhat hot headed doctor. He openly ridicules marriage chases after the bridesmaid and manages to rub his childhood friend Jenny Perotti the wrong way. The night before the wedding he is visited by the ghost of his uncle who was in his time an ace womaniser and whom connor calls " the prophet" he is also visited by 3 ghosts from his past present and future . From the past it is the girl with whom he had sex for the first time she shows him how as a kid he was gifted his first camera by jennifer and how he was really hurt when jennifer danced with another boy while he was waiting. The ghost makes him remember how he felt at that time and why he chose to start womanizing with his uncles blessing . The second ghost from his present is his own Indian assistant who hates him and plots against him with his dumped girlfriends he shows him what a crappy life he is running and she makes him discover that he still have feelings for jennifer . The third ghost from the future is super sexy hmm she make him feel the pain of watching jennifer getting married to another guy and she also shows ihim his funeral in which only his brother attends . The rest of the film deals with how he keeps all the bad stuff from happening and getting back with jennifer .

Phewww !!! that was my first movie spoiler ... i dont want to review or critisize a movie. Its just fine the way it is made. The fear of being rejected by some one we love makes us do different things ...some of us become womanizers/heart breakers, some of us become chronic bachelors and some of us become suspicious maniacs. How hard is it for someone to love again after being rejected/cheated ? I guess its pretty damn hard

Ah.. you piqued my interest.. I wanted to see the movie just for the lead actors. Like them both.

The story reminds me of Uncle Scrooge from "A Christmas carol". Don't know if you know it.. Its got that undertone.
