This was not a remake of the original GHOSTBUSTERS, so if that is what you think, you can get that right out of your head now. It did pay homage to the original, and quite heavily. There was the Stay Puff Marshmallow man. Several of the original actors made cameos, except Rick Moranis who was quoted as saying, "I hope it's terrific. But it just makes no sense to me. Why would I do just one day of shooting on something I did 30 years ago?" (As told to Ryan Parker in and interview for The Hollywood Reporter), so maybe he wasn't as missed as he could have been. Even Slimer was in this movie, and he had a date.
Chris Hemsworth was really fun. He played the not so bright Kevin, a receptionist who doesn't even know how to cover his ears. The ladies are all women from Saturday Night Live, except Melissa McCarthy, who is funny in her own right. The jokes are quick witted and often brilliant. Kate Mckinnon is a straight faced actress who delivers her lines on point and without breaking character. Leslie Jones is wonderful as a subway worker who knows all about the city, and who runs from the first ghost she sees, then again I am sure a lot of people would run if they saw a ghost. Kristen Wiig is funny as usual, but I felt she was the one character who fell a little flat. There isn't a whole lot of plot, but I didn't expect there to be (if you have watched the original there wasn't much of a plot there either).
Lastly, I have to say, stay until the end of the credits, it was worth it.
So, hate or love the movie, I liked it, and if you didn't get the chance to see it in the theaters, watch it when it comes out on AmazonPrime or Netflix, it was a fun movie and I laughed a lot, giggled a little, and drooled a tiny bit over the fun Mr. Hemsworth.
