Trivia

When Erin first visits Abby at Higgins University, a sign on the door to Abby's lab reads "Do not write (stupid) things on this door!". This is a call back to the original Ghostbusters (1984) film where on the door of the Ghostbusters university lab someone has written "VENKMAN BURN IN HELL". See more »

Addiction
6 February 2020 | by juczebzSee all my reviews

Hollywood producers and directors are addicts that are beyond medical help. They are addicted to the drug of remakes and sequels. It is just poor. Copy/inferior paste, copy/inferior paste, ad nauseam foreeeeeeeeeeever

People, I cringed for almost two hours trying to get to the end of this DVD. What did it add to the original? To the world? Nothing? Exactly.

And Chris Hemsworth! What does he contribute to cinema??
