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

Feels like a blueprint concocted by the bean-counters at Columbia Pictures.

Effectively slimed everyone's fond memories of the original.

Best forgotten sequel.

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.

There's very little energy in the follow-through, and this time Murray's listlessness seems more anemic than comic.

No one has ever accused Ghostbusters II of being a great film, or even a good one, for that matter

Frankly, Murray, Sigourney Weaver and even Aykroyd deserve much better.

Time Out
June 24, 2006
The film is largely an excuse for a cast get-together, with the Ghostbusters, under judicial restraining order after the havoc wreaked in part one, suffering lives of semi-obscurity.

A terrible disappointment, a shockingly self-satisfied and unforgivably slapdash sequel.

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.

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.
