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

While the role of Vigo was played by Wilhelm von Homburg, all his lines were dubbed by Max von Sydow. Wilhem was unaware that he would be dubbed and left the premiere in anger when he found out. See more »
Vigo possesses the Museum curator to capture Oscar for him so he can get out of the painting and into the baby's body. But despite the Ghostbusters retrieving the baby when they arrive at the museum and preventing the possession, Vigo is able to exit the painting and retrieve him himself anyway. Since Vigo is gaining power the closer it gets to Midnight when he can actually transfer his soul into Oscar, it's not far fetched to believe that this combined with his actual near possession of the baby could've given him enough power to briefly escape the painting to defeat the Ghostbusters.

You gotta do something, help me!
Don't talk to me, talk to my attorney.
That's me. My guys are still under a judicial restraining order. That blue thing I got from her, they can be exposing themselves.
And you don't want us exposing ourselves.

No, It's Not The Original, But It's Still Very Funny
This was another sequel that was fashionable to knock when it came out. It got panned because it couldn't live up to the first Ghostbusters. Well, what could? The first one was so original, so enormously popular than any sequel was bound to fail as far as matching it.
This second Ghostbusters was just fine, very entertaining and it was nice to see all the main characters back. It had a little nicer feel to it and was more family-friendly language-wise, so it even had some things going for it the first one didn't have.
The other major different in this sequel was watching Peter MacNichol, who reprized his "Renfield"-type character from Mel Brooks' "Dead: And Loving It" comedy with Leslie Nielsen. Here, MacNichol plays "Janosz Poha," another wacko with a thick Eastern European accent. He is hilarious, and elevates the enjoyment of this film. Otherwise, the rest of the cast plays and acts just as they did in the first film, which means you'll get a lot of laughs out of them The story just isn't as intense, that's all. No, it can't equal the original, but.....
The bottom line is this: Don't try to compare the two films. If you enjoyed the first, you'll like this.....period.
