    so I saw Ghostbusters today, and it was not as bad as i thought it would be. it was far worse. the jokes are not lame. the jokes are non-existent. they don't even use the music: they turned the music into rap, and not even good rap. i think they realized that because they kept the volume real low. they only play the original music at the end during the credits and cameos. the CGI is crude: staypuff doesn't look like marshmallow: he looks like a balloon. slimmer looks right (because they literally lifted the same scene and CGI from the original) but they gave him a girlfriend. the black girl is the only member of the cast with personality, and the only girl cute enough to be worth looking at is the gay one.

    How did they think anyone would believe those street scenes of Boston, are NYC: they are too clean, and too empty.

    the only funny scene is the Howard Stern / Joey Boots reference

    its a pity because the girls are exceptionally entertaining on SNL. i don't know what happened to them in this movie.

    i know the movie will book bank, but only because there is nothing else to bother watching. they will get paid for being lame and mediocre.

    The stay puff guy was a baloon. Remember all the floats right before that scene? I even saw it referred ro as a balloon in a review.

    I pretty much agree with all else you said.

    Btw they are planning a sequel.

    these girls were the worst role models possible: all failures in life; all as unfeminine as possible. You would have to paint them in fresh steaming horseshit to make them more unfuckable (and Kristen Wiig and Kate McKinnon are two of the hottest girls to come out of SNL in a decade - even tho McKinnon has zero use for cock).

    she was the only entertaining member of the cast. People should get off her ass. if not for her there would have been nothing at all to watch.
