TV Guide's Movie Guide

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.

Time Out
Top Critic IconTop Critic

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.

This movie is an exception to the general rule that big special effects can wreck a comedy.

Everyone's at the top of their game for this one. Even Ernie Hudson has never been this good since.

The epitome of 80s comedies and source of many a pop culture tagline.

There is more attention to special effects than to humor.

For six months in 1984, no one could escape this film; only when the hype died down could its wit and humor be appreciated.

It's nowhere near as good as it's supposed to be.

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

I had a good giggle watching Ghostbusters again, and I recommend checking it out for an evening of turn-your-brain-off entertainment.

The comedy here is solid gold, Bill Murray is in peak form, and the effects are a lot of fun.
