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

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 »
(at around 1h 16 mins) During the "Flip City" song montage, when the large monster ghost is coming through the arch (at the time done with stop-motion animation), if you look to the right of the screen at the top of the arch (in the sky next to it) you can see where the green screen the puppet was shot against wasn't completely edited out.

You know, I have met some dumb blondes in my life, but you take the taco, pal! Only a *Carpathian* would come back to life now and choose New York! Tasty pick, bonehead! If you had brain one in that huge melon on top of your neck, you would be living the sweet life out in Southern California's beautiful San Fernando Valley!

There are no opening credits, other than the title - which is represented by an animation of the movie's logo - The ghost bursting out of the first movie's barred circle logo and holding up two fingers. See more »
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.
