What kind of an idiot let Paul Feig and Katie Dippold write this film?
25 October 2017 | by ZiggiSee all my reviews

This crap is too much. After watching this garbage I felt like someone urinated on my childhood (a safe place where Ghostbusters was admired as fantastic cinema).

Go ahead and search Paul Feig (director and writer) and Katie Dippold (writer) and you'll figure out in two seconds that these clowns should never have been allowed to go near this film.

The acting sucks, the plot sucks, the editing sucks, the effects suck, the casting sucks, the attempt to do role reversal sucks, the directing sucks, the writing sucks, the staging sucks.

The only good thing in this film is the few seconds you get to see Bill Murry on screen.

I'm actually sorry I watched this because now my beloved memory of Ghostbusters is tarnished
