There is more attention to special effects than to humor.

Paranormal fun for tweens and up; some scares.

Andrew Lowry
Total Film

The leads' chemistry is almost, well, spooky, Dan Aykroyd's nerdy enthusiasm rubbing deliciously against a persona-perfecting turn from Bill Murray - and there's even the odd surprise.

Slant Magazine

The movie's tongue-in-cheek (and pre-subprime) satire of surging capitalist hubris is scarcely mitigated by the necessary fairy-tale ending.

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

Radio Times

The often dazzling, special effects-driven slapstick tends to overshadow the fact that there are some slyer, more sophisticated laughs on offer in this blockbusting family comedy.

"Ghostbusters" is a fun romp with a couple of comedy's greatest stars at the top of their game.

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

Flipside Movie Emporium

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

Antagony & Ecstasy

A comedy first, a horror film second... but a successful enough hybrid of those things that it would be wrong to try to limit it generically.

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