Felt like an Adam Sandler script in terms of laziness regarding both humor and actual plot development. Too much improvisation that seemed to always end up devolving into a competition on who can do/say the weirdest thing. Effects seem to bother a lot of people but I can't say I was too concerned about it. They didn't knock my socks off but I didn't hate them. I like the people involved but I just can't get behind it. It's corporate led garbage that had controversy that inflated it's importance.

I loved all the cameos. Bill Murray as the scientist guy. Dan Akroyd as a cabbie. Ernie Hudson as the funeral parlor guy. And Harold Ramis as a ghost. After his scene he went back to spinning in his grave.

Just to get it out of the way, I was never on board with the hate campaign. It never bothered me that this was a female remake. If I had to describe this film in one word, it would be a toss-up between "lazy" or "uninspired". It was like they made a movie out of a Disney channel sitcom and filled the cast with SNL members. It's relentlessly jokey, desperate joke-a-minute type stuff. No characters. No grounding in reality. Fart jokes, crotch jokes. Very low brow. For middle-schoolers only.

Objectively awful reboot full of network tv style humor. Everything revolves around cheap one off jokes involving feminism, race, or situational humor. Very cheap looking CGI. Bad pacing, lame comedy, and zero suspense compared to the original comedy horror film. This is a needless reboot that seems to have been driven more by politics than good film making. Unfortunately the entire cast is wasted on this. This is about on par with Fantastic Four when it comes to ill conceived reboots.

Ray Parker Jr. called me last night to ask if people would think he was a misogynist because he hated Fall Out Boy's remake of the Ghostbusters theme. I told him yes. I told him it would also make him a racist. And a pedophile. And a ghost.

This is a movie that I'm glad exists. I'm glad it spits in the face of the unreasonable hatred from adult virgins moaning about ruined childhoods, by actually being fun in spots, and never becoming BAD. There is totally an audience for this movie that is going to have a lot of fun with it, and if it translates into even a small percentage of this film's audience seeking out the original, I can't hate that. But it's a lot of so-called "relevant" comedy, which sometimes hits and sometimes misses.

The effects look nice and I chuckled a few times. Other than that, it's absolutely horrendous. There aren't really any jokes, and the leads have no chemistry and are absolutely devoid of any semblance of comedic timing. It isn't migraine-inducing Transformers bad, but nearly every single second misses whatever mark they were trying to hit, which leads leads to a bland and boring experience. The whole time you'll be wondering why this was made and why you're watching.

"That wasn't so terrible at all", the last 'self aware' line of a film seemingly confident it had proven it's critics wrong. Unfortunately I felt the opposite. For the record, I couldn't care less that it's 4 females, nor do I worship the original. I simply found it to be completely unfunny. Nothing it tried seemed to work for me so ultimately it was a big let down. I'm happy for those who enjoyed it, but I must be the wrong audience for this film as 'terrible' sounds pretty spot on to me.

SPOILERS! My favorite part of this movie was when Bill Murray showed up as a skeptic and Kristen Wiig tried to prove that ghosts are real by releasing a ghost and the ghost threw Bill Murray out a window and killed him and everybody sorta laughed and the movie cut to the next scene and we were all supposed to forget that a murder had just taken place that the main character was responsible for. Yay Ghostbusters.

This film is pretty bustin'. The funniest thing about this film is all the man babies getting ~REAL MAD~ about their precious lil childhood film. Of course, if you ask them, it's not about sexism/misogny (these words act like 'Bloody Mary' on the internet -- say them enough and an MRA will appear), but about the 4000 other words they have taken the time to write. In the end, a fun film. Wanna see McKinnon in everything.

Now that the dumbest debate on the Internet has died down, it's finally safe to say, that the only real problem with this remake is Paul Feig. He approaches this franchise the way Joel Schumacher did with Tim Burton's 'Batman'.

God damn but did I have a hell of a good time with the film. It has its issues for sure - the villain is weak, character motivations and arcs are barely explored, and Feig doesn't have the chops for the third-act climactic action - but the script is full of great lines which the lead actors elevate with impeccable performances. References and cameos are meh but minor enough to not be an issue, and McKinnon is absolutely brilliant. Funnier than the original, but probably a worse movie. COME AT ME

Quite disappointing. The ghosts look great, but the script is weak and the characters are very underdeveloped. I love Kate McKinnon, but I can't for the life of me understand her or the director's or the writers' choices for her character especially. My 8yo niece wasn't that entertained either.

People need to cool their jets a bit. I didn't love it and it doesn't touch the 1984 gem, but there was an 8 year old girl sitting next to me singing the theme song and telling her mom the ranking of characters she liked best. That is what I did 30 years ago. Points.

Most of the first 30 minutes are rough, as it's where the movie's flaws - awful editing, poor pacing and a script with as many duds as zingers - are most evident. Thankfully, it gets better as it goes. Feig does a decent job with the material, but even he pales in comparison to the main cast. This is a good group of actors who elevate decent material and make it thrive. The supporting cast keeps it 100, too, but this is the McCarthy/Wiig/McKinnon/Jones show, and it's a pretty good one!

I kinda dug this. For some, it will be what they wanted it to be, and for others, not so much. Ghostbusters has a lot cheap CGI and a few crude jokes that aren't needed, but those factors didn't take away my enjoyment. McKinnon and Jones are great. It's a movie about female Ghostbusters and it seamlessly uses that to its advantage. I really didn't think this was bad, it's just definitely not the originals. A fun time nonetheless save for some awful jokes.

I don't know if it's a necessary remake, but much like the original it's a tremendously entertaining one, with a serviceable script that just provides an arena for the cast to play off each other perfectly and hit their own beats rather than trying to replicate Aykroyd & Co's. I'm trying to find some genuine faults with it and I'm coming up all Fall Out Boy. Oh, and someone please cast Kate McKinnon in every movie ever made in the future, TIA.

A positive surprise. A good reboot in that it follows the ideas behind the original and does its own take on them, instead of just copying. Like the original it's centered on an ensemble cast with good chemistry having fun while sort of following a script. Finding the references to the old movie and cameos of the original cast is a fun game to play while watching, but it really stands on its own. McKinnon is boss, and adds many funny quirks, like her character's constant flirting with Wiig.

Ghostbusters (2016) represents the precise cultural moment where bad remakes and bad politics joined and became mutually reinforcing. Widely touted as a 'feminist' reimagining of the original franchise, the virtue signalling is completely off the charts, reminding us every minute that women are just as good at science, kicking arse and saving the world as men, just in case you hadn't noticed. It functions best as an unknowing critique of the poor state of contemporary gender discourse.

i had many laughs and giggles. most of the time from an old jokes or from jokes from 1984 when the first part was made. If you haven't watched the origin for a long time... well you wont remember all. But as I'm watching it after this "comedy of 2016" i have worse and worse impression from Gal's Busters. I would be into it with NEW IDEA, with MORE AGRESSIVE PLOT, with SOMETHING THAT THEY WANNA SHOCK AUDIENCE WITH. Whole movie was like a cheap version of soup you ate at your grandma's 10years ago

This reimagining of the Ghostbusters doesn't detract from the original, and even manages to establish itself as its own thing...unfortunately, not for me. I sighed more than I laughed, especially at the unending parade of cameos (literally, there's one after the credits). The direction is horrible, and the film has a Nickelodeon original movie feel to it. The plot and the jokes are lazy. I didn't mind some of the design choices and McKinnon was the only one who truly fits into this new universe.

Once again the vitriolic atrocity of an all woman cast turns out to be wicked hyperbole. This film has tons of chuckles, mostly from the quiet snide comments from Wiig, McCarthy and McKinnon. Hemsworth has some good gags as well. It's not great, but its the second best Ghostbusters film.

Really fun! Like an '80s movie with all the pointless filler taken out and modern characterization and thematic resonance added.

This film's worst critics are those who grew up with the original as a formative part of their identity and tastes, but this is of an entirely different breed and should be evaluated as such. To try and capture the palpable sarcasm of the original would be folly, so Feig and co. are wise to steer this to their comfort zone. Much of the humor in this is reminiscent of Spy, which was warmly embraced, but because this is an established property, Ghostbusters gets the shaft. It shouldn't.

Ghostbusters has the polish of a somewhat interesting movie that fails to execute much in terms of what makes a good movie. The cast is pretty alright, with Kate McKinnon as the standout, but the dialogue and comedy is very hit or miss, favoring the latter. Couple this with a weird progression into a weirder last act, and its hard to know exactly what to think of this film. I can just say there were moments that I couldn't take. It just wasn't my thing, in terms of comedy or adventure.

It's a film I wish was so much better, but there's no getting around that it's largely shite. "Ghostbusters" rests heavily on the natural comic talents of Wiig and McCarthy; but with such a poor screenplay, a complete non-villian, a disorganised storyline and dreadful special effects there's so little here to enjoy. Add in pointless cameos, horrible riffs on the brilliant original and McKinnon's hate-worthy performance and there's sadly nothing noteworthy to recommend.

It's not transcendent (but neither was the original). It was a fun, silly blockbuster. Its problems were not unique to this movie -- the villain was a little underdeveloped and story that didn't really work if you thought about it too hard. But it was absolutely wonderful to watch a movie with female leads kicking butt without the need to be sexy or the need to pine over a dude. We definitely need more movies like that.

It's not very funny, only having a spot or two where I mildly chuckled, and there are certainly some TERRIBLE gags that make me question everything. There's also the dreadful FoB theme. The original Ghostbusters implemented its amazing theme poorly (sorry), but I dig the updated version of it here and think they used it well in the final action sequence. That chick got badass! It's actually a fairly entertaining flick with a little heart. Certainly flawed, but not bad. I enjoyed it.

2016's Ghostbusters will likely be remembered not for anything that happened on the silver screen, but for its pre-release hate and controversy. That's really too bad, because the movie is a good-not-great reboot that actually tries to do some things differently with its premise. Its cast is great, its screenplay is funny, and the special effects are good. It's messy, the action isn't tremendous, and the characters are amiable but not particularly deep. It's more than serviceable.

An unfunny and unnecessary remake of the 1984 classic that wastes the comedic talents of its lead actors. The witty sarcasm and charm of the original have been replaced with juvenile humour and cynical nostalgia aimed at Gen-X'ers. Hardly the political statement it was made out to be back in 2016, rather another forgettable remake from an era in Hollywood that was already overcrowded with them.

The originals were a child obsession, but I was excited for a gender-swapping remake. McKinnon aside, the casting feels off, and the script is mostly awkward and unfunny. Ironically this do-over re-uses all the worst elements, including the impotent antagonist, undermined in the final act, when they could have doubled down on the enfeebled misogynist schtick. Fun turn by Hemsworth who should've been the villain instead. Poor writing and a sadly missed opportunity. Innovative SFX on the blu-ray.

It's mediocre, thanks to writing that's often awkward and contrived and a plot that doesn't make a whole lot of sense (especially in the final act-where did the villain get these powers all of a sudden?). That's probably half due to the campy concept though, and the film with its solid main quartet does well at matching it with a goofy-fun vibe throughout that's enjoyable even when the jokes don't land (Jillian's lip-syncing and Kevin's interview are bits that definitely do though-I lol'd).

Like every comedy movie that isn't pure, the jokes get bogged down by some tepid action sequences. Can't see myself ever wanting to watch this again but it's certainly got a charm that the original ghostbusters doesn't have. If McKinnon isn't a star after this role than I don't know what could make her. Loved her on SNL(p sure my bro and I are the only ones still watching the program in 2016) for years hope she becomes the next big thing cuz she rules!

I'm ashamed to admit I enjoyed this. It's not a great movie! It doesn't deserve any awards! But it does get a lot of laughs. Chris Hemsworth should be ashamed. He's given up acting to be a Ken Doll? Someone who did kick ass though: Kate McKinnon! Who the hell is she and where did she come from? Melissa McCarthy was naturally lackluster at best. Kristen Wiig was a good lead, and Leslie Jones did well in the roll they gave her. But Kate McKinnon was in your face epic!

What I got outside of the parts where I wasn't drooling profusely on my keyboard over Chris Hemsworth (how I comprehend any movie he is in beats me, like he's so distracting) was a movie with safe jokes and a boring plot. Really, aiming for par is the smart move when you have this much trouble to stir just by existing as a movie alone, and I don't blame them for that at all. It just would have been nice if the script were better. Nice cameos and yay for lots of female characters with agency!!!

I was never a big fan/nostalgic for the original film, and I like the idea of a gender-swapped reboot, but there's a lot of bad things about this: The barrage of product placement, the unfunny attempts at "relevent" or "modern" jokes, the weird editing and pacing, the weak villain, the lifeless action scenes, the lacking sense of mystery. McKinnon was great though, and the only member of the ensemble who felt like she was playing a character and not just an exaggerated version of herself.

I'm not really sure what I expected here. Sure, it isn't as loathsome as the average Sandler comedy but it never sustains any laughs for any period of time. This is because the lack of script is exposed in almost every scene and it never builds a consistent tone as a result. There are no characters because everybody takes turns acting crazier and weirder in most scenes. It's also bizarrely oversaturated so everything is visually ugly and terrible to look at. It's just a mess.

I had a lot of fun with this movie. It didn't even try to be like the original - it made its own thing. I can respect that! I honestly like a new and more modern take on the Ghostbusters, it makes sense and it didn't feel forced. Of course, the story wasn't all that deep and the characters are mostly clichés but come on - it's a blockbuster comedy, what did you expect? Also Kate McKinnon is definitely my new girl crush and thank the gods for Chris Hemsworth in this movie.

Surprisingly enjoyable reboot; I'm not a particular fan of the original, so I was able to take it for what it was, and on the whole, I liked it. The plot is a bit messy (there are obvious signs of recutting), and the script is a touch more uneven than it should be, but the cast is spirited enough to carry it through; I don't quite see why Kate McKinnon has been so acclaimed for her performance, but Leslie Jones and Chris Hemsworth are both delightful (McCarthy and Wiig are quite solid as well).

Yeah it's an over hyped blockbuster, but like A GOOD BLOCKBUSTER. Great cast, good comedic writing, and the the special effects are on point in a nostalgic Disney Haunted Mansion kind of way. Now with that being said the story arc is lacking and aside from wiig the characters are underdeveloped (especially the villain, and Mckinnon's character while funny was very quirky without much explanation at all). Ultimately though its just a fun popcorn flick, that could have easily been better or worse.

Honestly, this movie wasn't good. It wasn't awful either. It just felt plain unnecessary. Like there was no need for this movie to ever be made or to ever exist. The funny bits were ruined by Chris Hemsworth cast in the role of a Jar Jar. People who hate on this movie for the all-female cast confuse me, though. They did their job just fine, and didn't insist at all on the fact that it was a female squad other than a couple quick jokes. I don't get the negativity on that.

For a film that was supposed to ruin numerous childhoods, GHOSTBUSTERS actually plays it pretty safe. It isn't quite as eccentric as the original--few summer blockbusters are permitted to go a degree beyond "offbeat" these days--but the chemistry of its cast is just as electric. Despite Sony's strange notion of making this film the start of some multi-film mythology, Paul Feig is smart to keep the focus on the humor and heart of GHOSTBUSTERS' workaday heroes.

I liked the first 5 minutes and the Swayze joke, the rest was awful. It's a CGI-heavy film with cheap-looking effects. The script is miserable, a carbon copy of the original film with all the life sucked out of it. The star-studded supporting cast only distracts, the cameo's of the old crew are pointless. The original movie worked because it was *original*, the actors had chemistry and the jokes were funny. This is just a sad, lazy nostalgia trip. And the black member still isn't a scientist...

Kudos for the effort and it's not terrible but the film is kinda 'meh'. It wasn't as funny as I expected (given the cast involved) and the big problem for me was believing there was any real danger or that the characters were really friends (also, they tried too hard with Chris Hemsworth's character). Majority of the laughs go to Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones (both of whom I love from SNL), and the spot-the-cameos is kinda fun too.

the odds of NO jokes landing is as likely as EVERY joke landing, so really in an alternate universe, this is the funniest movie ever !

Enjoyable and entertaining but a bit shallow in its plot and character development.

It's totally the whacky big budget shenanigans i was hoping for and captures the tone of the first 2 just updated for an audience 30 years on. I love the cast, and even enjoyed Jones despite finding her pretty terrible on snl when she gets the spotlight. Laughed nearly non-stop and when it unleashes into something like an especially over the top doctor who episode i was damn giddy.

I didn't even know that Pixels had a terrible cousin. An embarrassment for everyone involved. Is Kate McKinnon really supposed to be funny? I mean, seriously??

Unfortunately this film is hard to separate from the original it's remaking, or the controversy the films cast and production garnered from the start. Somehow a Ghostbusters' film became politically divisive with one trailer. Where keyboards clashed as Feminazis battled basement dwelling neck bearded trolls in the mine fields that are YouTube comments. Ultimately, just a "meh" of a comedy, closer akin to better version of "Pixels"(2015) than anything in tone with the original or its' spin-offs.

I fell asleep in the theater during the original and thought this reboot was actually better. It's some of the best cast of SNL plus Melissa McCarthy and Chris Hemsworth. What is there not to love? I did take a couple points off for being longer than it should have been. I'd like a sequel though.

No big whup and no big fat flop either, the female reboot of Ghostbusters settles for being a fine, fun time at the movies. So ease up, fanboys, these scrappy women are the best thing this gender-swapped Ghostbusters has going for it. Slime Ghostbusters all you want for its lazy reliance on CGI gimmicks and its lapses in pacing -- but there's no faulting the ladies. In a summer of macho bluster, they sure as hell know how to raise spirits.

I wanted to like this movie, but it just made so little sense, and most of the jokes fell very flat.

Completely forgettable, but since it’s a reboot of a beloved movie it must first be insulted and then forgotten. Poo poo film.

Thirty-two years after Ghostbusters first splattered the big screen with green goop, Hollywood (specifically, execs at Sony) has decided it's time for a reboot. Only this time, filmmakers have flipped the casting roles: They've tapped an all-female gaggle of 'busters and put a guy in the role of the objectified "pretty young thing" who's eventually possessed by a malevolent spirit.

I fell asleep during the final battle scene and did not bother to rewind to watch it. It just doesn't click and it is really badly directed.

It's the same as the original but without the magic.

It's way too long and Paul Feig, unsurprisingly, has absolutely zero knack for narrative, making him an odd choice for this project. There's a point where the Ghostbusters have suddenly solved the mystery, but we never even see them look for the pieces. Just bizarre, clueless storytelling. He's able to assemble some solid comedic elements but just can't fit them together at all.

The only problem with this movie comes down to toxic masculinity. This movie couldn't have come out at a worse time. We were in the run-up to Trump winning the presidency. It was the beginning of a very dark time in our past. Do I think the movie was perfect? No. I do think it had a ton of laughs. I laughed as much if not more than I did for the original movie. I felt that the four women all worked really well together and they took the characters in their own directions. I want part two.

Ultimately uneccessary rebooting of the Ghostbusters franchise brings nothing new to the table, outside of the stunt female casting of the 'busters, but the women's magical chemistry together, capped by a hilarious supporting bit for Hemsworth, makes you wish for a cleverer and more genuinely funny script. Picks up steam as it goes along, and benefits from effects that (largely) resemble the pre-CGI of the original film. Props to scene-stealer McKinnon, whose chemistry with Wiig is electric.
