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

(at around 1h 16 mins) 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 »
(at around 16 mins) When Ray and Egon are "examining" Oscar, the tape recorder Ray is holding jumps between his left and right hands between shots. However, this could easily be the result of him resting his elbows on the table and putting the recorder down and picking it back up several times. See more »

Boys! Boys! You're scaring the straights, okay? Is there any way that we could do this tomorrow?

There is a brief scene in the end credits of the Ghostbusters being honored at an apparently restored Statue of Liberty. See more »
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?
