MPAA Rated PG-13 for supernatural action and some crude humor

Sex & Nudity

Violence & Gore

  • A ghost throws man out of the window.
  • Abby tries drops Holtzmann while being possessed but saved by Patty.
  • Kevin fights police while being possessed by Rowan
  • A man is shot in the groin


  • One use of s**t, a few damn's and hell's, a few a**, a couple b**ch. Extended use (approx 30 sec) of the middle finger in one particular scene. Overall, probably a little more than the original.
  • Extended version uses alternate takes of certain scenes as well as additional scenes, which adds one use of the F-word, a***ole, and religious profanities, thereby steering the film away from kid-friendly.

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • There's one scene in a bar where the Ghostbusters have a beer. One of them is slightly merry.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • Adult supervision is recommended.
  • Ghost scenes are on a par with the original. Nothing intensely frightening but could give younger children a fright nonetheless.
