I enjoyed this a lot. It was a nice homage to the original, but still held its own as an original story. I enjoyed the new characters a lot, and I laughed out loud many times. Give it a chance, with an open mind. It was fun, pleasant and I found it very entertaining.

Another failed Hollywood remake of a classic movie. This was lame. 0 stars.

This is simply a terrible movie on all fronts: the acting, the plot, the special effects, the "jokes" (such as they were), the music. ALL bad. Also there is a complete disrespect of the source material. I cannot suggest you stay away from this movie strongly enough. Please just go watch the original from 1984. If you want to see female Ghostbusters done correctly, and in canon, please check out IDW's comic "The New Ghostbusters" which the library has available! If you want to see how to do a Ghostbusters movie without the original cast, please check out Hank Braxton's fan-film "Return of the Ghostbusters."

is the ghostbusters movie with all four ladies is as good as it looks or is the original still better than all the rest of the ghostbusters francises? some people might think that it looks chessy and rather not spend there money on seeing it in the movie theaters! please dont hate my comments, ok?

No need to forget everything you knew about Ghostbusters (2016). What the ladies bring, and what this movie brings is all the familiar stuff from the original Ghostbusters (1984)... including... guest appearances from the original movie: Dan Ackroyd, Sigorney Weaver, Bill Murray, Ernie Hudson, Annie Potts, Slimer, Stay-Puft Marshmallow Man; all the other familiar things we remember, and MORE! This is a GREAT MOVIE in its own right... and it's FUNNY! Watch it! You'll love it! Forget what the CRITICS say... they're PAID to say those things.

Once again the remake train derails into another franchise with Ghostbusters, the 2016 comedy that seems to be made by people who have never seen the original film.

One star for some jokes that were rather amusing among a myriad of awkward too long lasting jokes made by characters who had no chemistry with each other in a world that was too visually cluttered with neon light ghosts. Ghostbusters 2016 ended up going far too deep into comedy while leaving behind elements of horror that made the original more enjoyable.

ghostbusters is mindless unfunny and stupid movie the jokes arint funny .the script is stupid and poorly directed. and everybody is miss casted in this horriable movie.

Who you gunna call for fun? This movie!!! LOL.

OMG, this movie is too funny! The first Ghostbusters was just too scary and they were not good role models. But this movie is great, plus it is in color. I wish the EPIC fight at the end could have lasted longer and it makes so much more sense than the ending of the first one. In 10 years time (or less!) this will be the version that people think of or remember. Sometimes the second version is just better and more in touch with the times.

The worst part was all the cameos of has-beens. They were just not needed and felt like they were squeezed in places that made no sense.

6 Stars!!!!!!

Whatever you do, do not compare this one to the original. If you do you will be greatly disappointed. I enjoyed the cameos throughout the movie. The part that seemed like the lull of the movie to me was the climax if I'm not mistaken. The scene where they were fighting the ghosts lost my interest really fast. Other than that it was pretty entertaining.

Kevin: Would it be okay if I bring my cat to work sometimes? He has major anxiety problems.
Abby Yates: You know what? I would love to let your cat live here with you, but I have a pretty severe cat allergy.
Kevin: Oh, I don't have a cat. He's a dog. His name's My Cat.
Abby Yates: Your dog's name is My Cat?
Kevin: Mike Hat.
Erin Gilbert: Your dog's name is Mike, last name Hat?
Kevin: Well, his full name is Michael Hat.
Abby Yates: I can't say that I'm allergic to dogs... so.
Kevin: You know, it's all right. He lives with my mum.

But I saw that you had a recommendation letter from Dr. Branum at Princeton. Uh... Their science department is really not what it used to be. And I would consider getting a referral from a more prestigious college.

I am a genius. I see things that no one else does. And for it, I am rewarded with nothing but scorn and mockery. Luckily, I am not the only one seeking revenge. Behind these are millions of souls, souls which have been cast aside. Souls who see the world as it truly is, as garbage. Garbage that needs to be cleaned up. They're mostly dudes. When these barriers are destroyed, an army of the undead will return to pester the living.
