Ghostbusters makes its long-awaited return, rebooted with a cast of hilarious new characters. Thirty years after the beloved original franchise took the world by storm, director Paul Feig brings his fresh take to the supernatural comedy, joined by some of the funniest actors working today--Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon, Leslie Jones, and Chris Hemsworth. This summer, they're here to save the world!

Went to see this with husband and 15 year old daughter. Holly loved it...especially Kate McKinnon's character (the blonde). My husband loved it too. I liked it. Each individual character was great, but there was something missing with the chemistry of all of them on the screen. Very predictable, but with some really funny moments. And who doesn't like looking at Chris Hemsworth.

There were plenty of nods to the original, including cameos from the original cast, but it still was its own story. The intro scene was creepy as all get out and will give you a jump scare. Be sure to stay till the end of the credits, there is a quick scene about what the sequel might be about! Also as the ending credits roll you get quite a treat from Hemsworth.

Don 4 Sheep

Holly 4 Sheep
Sharon 3.5 "I ain't afraid of no ghosts" Sheep


  1. Thanks for the review - I wasn't sure if it was worth the cost or to wait tile it's on DVD - now, if I get a chance I'll go (& wait thru the end of credits)

  2. Definitely going to see it. Thanks for the review (and thanks for Don and Holly's ratings too). PS - I really appreciate the tip to stay through the credits. I normally do anyway because I'm just geeky enough to find them interesting, but I need to be able to promise hubs there's a "prize" at the end, LOL.
