THIS ONE RIPS OFF ELEMENTS from SO MANY SOURCES, IT'S LIKE SOME KIND of SPONTANEOUS REACTION in the DUMPSTER BEHIND a SKIN-GRAFTING LAB...

TAKING ITS BASIC PREMISE from DICKENS' A CHRISTMAS CAROL, GHOSTS OF GIRLFRIENDS PAST GRAFTS the IDEA of GHOSTLY VISITATIONS onto a FRAMEWORK of FORMULAIC ROM-COM CLICHE's to PRODUCE a MOVIE WE'RE FAIRLY SURE ALMOST NO ONE WILL WANT to SEE...EXCEPT MAYBE MASOCHISTIC RAZZIE® VOTERS.

AND the FACT THAT IT FEATURES TWO FORMER RAZZIE® NOMINEES AMONG ITS CAST (MICHAEL DOUGLAS -- LOOKING 108 YEARS OLD -- and ANNE ARCHER) ONLY ADDS to ITS WOES.

JUST AS LIKELY an OUTCOME as THIS GETTING a HANDFUL of NOMINATIONS at YEAR's END IS the THOUGHT THAT IT COULD BE COMPLETELY FORGOTTEN by THEN.

BUT, WHILE ITS TRANSGRESSIONS ARE STILL FRESH in YOUR MIND, WHY NOT TAKE the OPPORTUNITY to EXPRESS HOW PISSED YOU ARE THAT SOMETHING LIKE GIRLFRIENDS PAST EVER CAME to BE MADE...

McCONAUGHEY: "Since you've got experience, Mr. Douglas, I thought maybe you could tell me -- What's it like being a RAZZIE® nominee??"

Did you know McConaughey's next movie is a comedy?

I think this technically is supposed to be a comedy.

But I have to say, to Family Guy's credit, I imagine sitting down and talking to McConaughey is probably EXACTLY the way Stewie's conversation played out -- He's really terrible.

The title of this movie alone is enough to send chills up my spine. Maybe it is just a personal reaction: "Ruh roh! Somebody found the bodies!"

I can assure you, if I made a movie called "Ghosts of Girlfriends Past"... well, it would be a bit different. With a lot more chainsaws.

Sounds like we could maybe collaborate on one of the great action thrillers in cinematic history.

I'm convinced that every studio in H-Wood has at least one screenwriter whose sole job requirement is to think up new twists to "A Christmas Carol". Because no matter how many versions and adaptations of that story have been made, H-Wood just HAS to make a few dozen more.

Remember back when Matthew McConaughey was known for his acting and
not his body?

I was planning on pitching a movie to the major studios: Basically, Michael Bay wants to remake the Leprechaun movies, and is visited by Warwick Davis, who then shows him the past, present and future of his career. It's a brilliant way to showcase clips of past Michael Bay projects, current Michael Bay projects, and potential future project concepts.

Suffice to say there will be plenty of explosions.

He (Michael Bay) has returned in the director's seat for the upcoming Transformers sequel titled Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, coming to theaters June 24.

The Mormons were'nt really popular in the beginning, they're now becoming more popular, even in Hollywood.

HeadRAZZ is sure on top of things. I was just gonna report that the film was sitting at 20% on Rotten Tomatoes. Seems like it might be a contender.

Also of note, news was out that Matthew McConaughey also expressed interest in playing Captain America in a forthcoming project based on the superhero, then in The Avengers. Let the fanboy bashing begin.
You think you know, but you have no idea.

Family Guy suggested that the high point of Matthew McConaughey's career was Dazed and Confused. Wasn't he the guy who said, "I love high school girls. I keep getting older, and they keep stayin the same age." That's a point of pride. I hope that's on his tombstone.

If that is the high point of his career, then there are some serious issues with his career. Perhaps someone should take it off life support.
