Spoiler Free Movie Review - Ghostbusters

Who you gonna see?! "Ghostbusters"! It's fun! We enjoyed it.

It was really cool seeing the shout outs to the original "Ghostbusters" from 1984. Be aware it is not a remake but a reboot. There is no mention in the film about "those guys who wrecked New York" but if you are a fan of the first two movies you'll see references.

Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Leslie Jones and Kate McKinnon as the team are very good. I do have to admit that McKinnon got on my nerves somewhat. Chris Hemsworth is a hoot as their receptionist. Watch him, he sneaks in some good physical comedy. Also watch for cameo appearances by Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Harold Ramis, Sigourney Weaver, Ernie Hudson, and Annie Potts.

The story deals with a person who wishes to open a portal to ghosts. So of course the Ghostbusters get called in. However, stay through the credits!

I didn't find it scary so younger kids might enjoy it. However be aware of your child's limits and what they can tolerate. The comic relief might not work for them.

The special effects are well done. I doubt if it will get nominated for many awards outside of the technology ones. But remember some of the most entertaining movies never won awards but certainly were fun.

So go. Have fun. Eat popcorn.
