Ghostbusters Reviews

Page 2 of 3

Stuffed with wisecracking, punning and essential deadpanning care of the film's most notable star performer Murray (who has such delivery down as a fine art), the film also packs in a half-decent narrative.

With his deadpan delivery and snide quips, Murray more than holds his own amid the myriad state-of-the-art special effects.

Essentially a $30 million version of Abbott and Costello Meet the Mummy but not at all a bad time, thanks mainly to Bill Murray's incredibly dry line readings and director Ivan Reitman's maintenance of a moderately coherent tone and plotline.

The story of a trio of incompetent 'experts' in the paranormal (Murray, Aykroyd and Ramis), who set up as ghostbusters after they are canned from their college sinecures, is less cynical a construction than it sounds.

The perfect marriage of big-budget sci-fi spectacle and character-based comedy schtick.

Dan Aykroyd's inventive comedy concept for Ghostbusters attracted an all-star comedy team to bust out an classic of mainstream '80s cinema.

Murray and scribe Ramis defy all logic and turn it into a movie you'd want to watch over and over.
