Five years after the events of the first film, the Ghostbusters have been plagued by lawsuits and court orders, and their once-lucrative business is bankrupt. However, when Dana begins to have ghost problems again, the boys come out of retirement only to be promptly arrested. The Ghostbusters discover that New York is once again headed for supernatural doom, with a river of ectoplasmic slime bubbling beneath the city and an ancient sorcerer attempting to possess Dana's baby and be born anew. Can the Ghostbusters quell the negative emotions feeding the otherworldly threat and stop the world from being slimed? Written by

Peter Mosen appears as the date of the Slimed Restaurant Patron played by Judy Ovitz. Peter was a Ghostbusters superfan who used to do promotional work as a Ghostbuster, complete with his own Ecto-1 replica, for Columbia Pictures and NOW Comics back in the 1980s. He was profiled in The Real Ghostbusters Magazine, Fall 1990 issue. See more »
When Louis runs to the bus stop, you can see the bus in the background waiting for the cue, but, given the way buses run and the fact that his run to the bus stop didn't take that long, it could rightfully be assumed that the bus was pulling up to the stop at the same time, needing to slow down.

I guess that usually, we have to wonder why they make sequels. If nothing else, as long as the sequels aren't boring, obnoxious, pathetic, embarrassing, insulting, or otherwise bad, then they're acceptable. "Ghostbusters II" passes. Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Harold Ramis, Ernie Hudson, Sigourney Weaver, Annie Potts and Rick Moranis reprise their roles from the original. This one has the title characters battling a river of hostility-based slime that's possessing a painting. Peter MacNicol plays the man who brought the painting to New York, and subsequently gets possessed by it. "Ghostbusters II" is pretty ridiculous, often gross, but never unpleasant. So who you gonna call?
