Ghostbusters (1984)

Synopsis: Hilarity ensues when bullshit artist and clueless academic buddies go into the pest control industry.

Blurb From the VHS Jacket: “Let’s Get Slimed One More Time” (taken from – no VHS/DVD jacket)

What Did I Learn?: When a supernatural being asks if you’re a god, the correct answer is “yes”.

You Might Like This Movie If: You loved this oddly-named 1970s TV show...

Really?: 1) I’m still not entirely sure what an ancient Sumerian god has to do with the ghosts in New York City. 2) How does one obtain three mortgages at a 19% interest rate on a single house?

Rating: Ok, the plot is a little silly, but who wants to watch Ghostbusters as a supernatural thriller, anyway? The movie provides many good laughs, and I had almost forgotten the nearly-perfect chemistry that existed between Bill Murray, Sigourney Weaver, Dan Aykroyd, etc... 9/10 stars.
