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

The scene involving a woman's mink coat coming to life was originally written & storyboarded to be in Ghostbusters (1984) where it was set on a fashion show runway. See more »
When the Ghostbusters drop in to the museum, Ray and Winston both have lights on their "slime throwers". These lights switch from on and off between many shots until the end. However, slime was not a constantly thrown thing, we know the proton packs have activator switches on the wands, so why not the same with the throwers. In other words, on when they're being used, but switched off to conserve power. See more »
[Louis Tully is the Ghostbusters' defense lawyer]
I think you guys are making a big mistake. I do mostly tax law and probate stuff occasionally. I got my law degree at night school.
Well, that's fine, Louis. We got arrested at night.

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?
