Batman must battle former district attorney Harvey Dent, who is now Two-Face and Edward Nygma, The Riddler with help from an amorous psychologist and a young circus acrobat who becomes his sidekick, Robin.
Following a ghost invasion of Manhattan, paranormal enthusiasts Erin Gilbert and Abby Yates, nuclear engineer Jillian Holtzmann, and subway worker Patty Tolan band together to stop the otherworldly threat.
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. But when Dana has ghost problems again, the boys come out of retirement and are 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 reborn. Can the Ghostbusters quell the negative emotions feeding the otherworldly threat and stop the world from being slimed? Written by

I say that one line summary not in the meaning you should watch this film in
widescreen, but in that this film isn't as bad as some people say. Sure it
might not have the ultimate originality of the 1st (of course), but it is
still entertaining, one of the best of 1989. This time, we see 5 years
later where the Ghostbusters parted ways (Venkman to a Talk show, Spengler
to a child psychologist and Stanz as a book store owner) but are put back
together because of new activity in the paranormal that could end the world
(courtesy of a painting named Vigo). Then, comedy ensues with great visual
effects to match. Still pretty funny (the talk show scene with Chloe Webb
is utterly hilarious), but maybe just a tad lesser than the first.
