A very funny and very terrible ghostbusters movie
I really wanted to like this movie. I really did. And I did like it more that I thought I would. But sadly it wasn't enough.
To be clear, I went with negative expectations. I didn't like the trailers one bit.
The ghosts I didn't like and the humor wasn't working for me either, so what was left? The story? Everybody knew the story was going to be something similar to the original. The thing is, the trailers have the worst jokes of the movie. Literally the worst ones. The nickelodeon-type green vomit... the classic "make fun of the badass hero line cliché"... the black woman being all "Hell no!" and ghetto about everything. That being said, I laughed out loud several times during the movie. And, as big of a fan of the original as I am, let's be honest, you don't laugh out loud very much on those. Is not that kind of humor. Is more of a "Have a smile on your face the whole time" kind of humor. This one has great jokes, great writing, and very good performances by all the main cast. Although Leslie Jones is still a little too "Hell no!" for my taste. But is balanced by the surprisingly hilarious Chris Hemsworth. The actual ghostbusting wasn't that good. Except for that McKinnon bit, which was as good as everything McKinnon did throughout the movie. So, in my opinion, you have not so good ghostbusting stuff filled with good jokes and funny performances. A movie with this dialogues and cast would have been great if only they would change the whole Ghostbusters thing.
No matter what people say, this movie definitely isn't a less than three stars movie. That's just fan hate.
