Ghostbusters mixes humor, action, spooks and even cleverly nerdy writing, into what it could be the 80s most memorable original film, that still holds up today as it did back in the day.

The first hour of this movie is awful. I pushed myself through it though, and discovered that the rest of the movie is quite enjoyable and humorous.
I would never watch this movie again and would never recommend it to anyone. You should never have to skip an hour of a movie to get to the enjoyable part.

The special effects are quite dated and some of the deadpan humor falls flat, but of all the films I've seen with a cult classic status, "Ghostbusters" is by far the funniest and most memorable and I'm sure it will remain a favorite amongst Earth's inhabitants for years to come. That being said, the "Ghostbusters" theme song really irritates me.

A classic that stands the test of time.

Very funny, characters well developed, still A fan after all these years, everyone has wonderful lines, The plot was original, it's hard to touch perfection, and great special effects, better than the remake.

A fun and original movie with a great themesong. The way Peter Venkman's character pursued Dana Barett bothered me a little, just as the put-down he had in store for Janine Melnitz.

Awesome. I just re-watched after watching the new movie, and was not disappointed. Fun, fun, fun!

So much better than that dogshit reboot and if you are smart you would ignore it and watch this instead.

Before the 2016 reboot that caused huge controversy online, even though it got a Certified Fresh on this website. And yes I also liked the reboot. we had Ghostbusters the male version. For what this movie is worth it's good. Im not going to say it's great. But I still think that it's a good film. It's especially good around Halloween aside from The Conjuring 1 and 2. I didn't like this film though as much as I did as the reboot. But for what it's worth I still think its good. Check it out when you get the chance.

This movie is perfect. There's not a thing I would change about it.

I understand that this is a popular movie, and I can totally see why so many people like it, but personally I just don't. Don't get me wrong, I love the premise. It's the characters that kill it for me. They're all so one dimensional and shallow that I find myself rooting for the ghosts

Ghostbusters (original) is why movies are made...When I was little I wanted to be a Ghostbuster, I saw this movie over and over, its amazing, everyone knows it.
½ October 10, 2016
the film is a classic, but as a film, while it was innovative at the time, is overrated in most aspects. A couple of scenes, specially the cheering crowds, and the use of Rick Moranis' character half of the time, are cringe-worthy, as some of the moments by the arrogant Bill Murray character, which after 32 years, I still don't get why is the most beloved character of the series... it's completely unlikeable by any standards.
