RomComs for Everyone!
Four VERY different types of romantic comedies in this edition of DVD Recommendations.

Ghosts of Girlfriends Past – From Warner Bros. Matthew McConaughey, Jennifer Garner and a nice twist on "A Christmas Carol,"
and some nice supporting work from Breckin Meyer, Michael Douglas, et al to put this in the plus column as I noted HERE.
Observe and Report – From Warner Bros. Seth Rogan and Ana Faris are the "romantic" leads in Jody Hill's mouth droppingly
crude and very funny white trash comedy. Enjoy at your own risk - a definite guilty pleasure!
