    My wife and I finally had three hours of alone time from our kiddo...the only movie showing that matched up with dinner plans was Ghostbusters so we went in with open minds.

    It sucked. I actually felt bad for the 4 ladies....they actually gelled well as a team, but the script, the jokes were awful. Really awful. That's all.... 2 out of 5 stars.

    I saw it recently. I don't blame the women. I blame the men. And the dog.

    'Can I bring in my cat to work?'
    'No, I'm sorry I'm allergic to cats'
    It's actually a dog.'
    'You named your dog 'My Cat?'
    No, his name is Mike. Mike Hat'

    I haven't cringed that hard in a long time.

    And then when they tell him not to listen - he covers his eyes! He so stupid!! He thinks we HEAR with our EYES!!

    This is the level we're playing at. Then he starts showing off the logos he made. Movie felt like non-stop improv exercises. WTF does any of this have to do with Ghostbusting?


    It also really took me out of it when - after their first ghost encounter- they put their ghost video on Youtube and everyone thinks it's fake.

    Isn't there other data that prove its real? Audio, video, readings, data, etc. All this equipment they carry around and yet none of it proves a real paranormal encounter? WTF is it for then?

    And why YouTube? Is there no scientific body she can take this evidence to? Like, a professor at the COLLEGE YOU WORK AT for example? They just post proof of the afterlife on YouTube - are for some reason surprised by the stupid comments - and then give up on that idea.

    I like how this movie kept saying 'Don't compare it to the original' 'We're doing our own thing' - and then when you see it's like 80% references and cameos.

    The original was shot like a horror movie. It was the gravity of the situation that made the jokes pop. This was sitcom bullshit. Cram as many jokes in - relevant to the story or not - and hope something lands. It's like they had no faith in the conceit. Which is a travesty because the conceit is genius.

    I thought it was decently well acted, the script was just garbage. I knew after the first queef joke it was going to be a long 2 hours. It makes the real Ghostbusters movie seem like high brow comedy by comparison.
