Ghosts of Girlfriends Past

Posted: April 30, 2009 at 8:13 pm   /   Local, Movie Reviews

The most amazing thing I can think of about Ghosts of Girlfriends Past is that its star Matthew McConaughey manages to keep his shirt on for pretty much the entire movie. Ghosts of Girlfriends Past is a retooling of Charles Dickens’s Christmas Carol, instead of being shown his miserly ways, the main character played by […]

You have seen 17 Again before – just with different names for title. It is one of those movies that requires the audience to believe that a 17 year old Zac Effron could turn into a someone who looks like Matthew Perry 20 years later. If you don’t think that you could do that, then […]

In 2007’s Superbad, director Greg Mottola hit box office gold with a coming of age story of two high school losers with foul mouths and a funny story. While Adventureland is another coming of age story, it doesn’t appear to have the same qualities to […]
