Celebrity photographer Connor Mead loves freedom, fun and women… in that order. A committed bachelor who thinks nothing of breaking up with multiple women on a conference call, Connor’s mockery of romance proves a real buzz-kill for his kid brother, Paul, and a houseful of well wishers on the eve of Paul’s wedding. Just when it looks like Connor may single-handedly ruin the wedding, he is visited by the ghosts of his former jilted girlfriends, who take him on a revealing and hilarious odyssey through his failed relationships–past, present and future. Together they attempt to find out what turned Connor into such an insensitive jerk and whether there is still hope for him to find true love…or if he really is the lost cause everyone thinks he is. Release Date: May 1st, 2009

After watching this movie I was left feeling mixed emotions, on one side it had a fun concept for a movie but it wasn’t really executed well. It felt a bit like 13 going on 30 but instead of going to the future it was the past, they even used the same girl that played a young version of Jennifer Garner in 13 going on 30 in this film as well. It turned out to be like a lot of other movies about regret and things that you should have done in the past. He’s now getting the chance to change his past and of course he will be a changed man in 48 hours…ya right! Overall it was just very predictable and kind of disappointing. I usually love Matthew McConaughey but I think he over acted a little bit, it felt kind of fake, like he was pretending to be this person instead of being the character. This is just my opinion and I would still say watch it because it was cute and an ok movie but I would wait till it hits DVD and rent it.
MY RATING: C
