||A Christmas Carol – Charles Dickens
||Jon Lucas, Scott Moore
||Matthew McConaughey, Jennifer Garner, Michael Douglas, Breckin Meyer, Lacey Chabert, Robert Forster, Anne Archer, Emma Stone
||A celebrated fashion photographer and serial womaniser is a guest at his brother’s wedding where he causes mayhem, but he is visited by ghosts who take him back into his past, the adverse effects on his present and his likely future. With this new knowledge can he put it all together and repair his life?
||Scenes at the country venue during the preparation for the wedding and then the wedding itself. Time at college dances, and in bars and elsewhere in the past. Surprisingly little sex but some girls in underwear.
||I was a bit embarrassed even to be watching this. It won the Women Film Critic’s Circle Award Hall of Shame award. Says it all really. Several critics commented that it was even worse than Failure to Launch, and anyway what is it with the American fim industry’s fascination with very unpleasant men?
