Plenty of agreeable nonsense to develop within the larger Ghostbusters universe. It's a sincerely amusing movie, warmly energized to give fans a steamy second helping of the good stuff.

A little of a rehash but still good.

Almost as sharp as the first film and only suffering slightly from the inevitable repetitions.

Kids will find the oozing slime and ghastly, ghostly apparitions to their liking and adults will enjoy the preposterously clever dialog.

Bottom line: with Murray on fire and enough clever dialogue to rival its predecessor, Ghostbusters II is good enough to put post-milennial comedy to shame.

A loose, assured sequel that has the breezy ambition of simply being fun and likable. And it is.

Even the special effects are more to the point of the comedy than they were in the first film. For some reason, this appears to leave more room for the sort of random funny business that Mr. Murray and his friends do best.

About equal to the original. Neither of them were classics.

Hammered together out of the junkiest of elements, the movie rattles along with a pleasing rambunctiousness, tossing off its quips and one-liners and scoring on a remarkably high percentage of them.

There's plenty to enjoy here and fans of the group won't care about the shortcomings.

The sequel is, on the whole, a fairly mechanical spook show, filled with grinning ghosts that are definitely ghoulish but hardly menacing.

An almost uniformly substandard follow-up that, since the original film remains so beloved by so many people, still gets to be disappointing even two decades and change later.
