A fun, comedic adventure at the hands of special effects and a talented cast all starting and ending with Billy Murray's performance.

Unlike the remake, the original "Ghostbusters" is actually really good. The comedy is amazing, visuals are really good for its time and leads are amazing. Again, unlike the remake, this film doesn't care about an agenda. It's just a terrific horror/comedy that will be cherished forever.

Ghostbusters is a timeless classic, but due to the movie being a new idea when it was made, the lore is slightly vague. I'm interested in finding more about this world's works on ghosts, the science behind the ghost-busting gear, etc.

All the characters are great, Bill Murray did a great job of playing the character you wanted to hate because of his sleazy attitude (Venkman).

This may just be a Perfect Movie. I really don't want to oversell it but it's hard no to. The humour is spot on and the concepts are well thought out, original and executed flawlessly. Hell, even the special effects hold up. I must have seen this movie 150 times.

It hasn't aged all that well and the entire story seems horrendously inconsequential, but Bill Murray provides enough laughs to tide the audience through.

Who you gonna call?
Nah seriously though, this was the first time I watched this movie and it was great. Much better than the new Ghostbusters film. This one had humor and action with overarching the,es that were very interesting. Very good movie!

The original "Ghostbusters" is definitely a silly movie but it also is aware that it is. Being completely honest, I didn't like this movie as much as most people who grew up watching it do. I think there are times it was funny and at times it just feels over the top. I think the best parts of the movie are the characters' chemistry and the soundtrack. It certainly has that 80s feel that people are still so fond of and I think it's definitely a somewhat enjoyable movie overall. It's worth checking out since it is so iconic in pop culture, but as a movie, it is just an okay one for me.

4.5/5. Ghostbusters is a hilarious and iconic movie that has some great characters and is well deserving of it's title of "classic".

I love this movie. I saw this in the theater when it came out. I've always been a huge fan of Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, and Harold Ramis. And, Ivan Reitman did a great job of directing these guys.
