Is the new Ghostbusters a masterpiece of film comedy? No, but I have no problem saying that it's better than the original.

The fact that the '84 version became a phenom is as strange, really, as the 2016 version becoming a war between idiot men and all kinds of women.

It aims to be a good family film for the summer movie season, and it fits right in with the buttery popcorn I ate while watching it.

It's funny, and nuanced in its funniness: hehs to haaaaaaas to lols.

So, how do the Ghostbusters of today shape up against the boys of yesteryear? Pretty well ...

The new Ghostbusters is not bad at all and it would make a fun outing for a 12-year-old.
July 15, 2016
It is daringly progressive, and it is a landmark in mainstream entertainment. It's just a shame that it isn't a bit funnier.
July 15, 2016
This is a mediocre horror/comedy that deserves neither high praise nor disparagement.
July 14, 2016
As is so often the case with special-effects-heavy movies, the character comedy quickly gets trampled by the effects (in this case, not special).

In her wily line delivery and cocksure swagger, McKinnon resembles nothing if not a young Bill Murray. Through her thick goggles is the impish spark that keeps movies like this in orbit.

These women are having fun just being together and getting to don matching jumpsuits and whale on undead spirits, and their evident joy makes us happy to hop in the hearse for a ride-along.

How will the reboot be remembered a couple of decades down the line? Not as beloved, or beloathed; more likely as beliked, if it's remembered at all.
July 14, 2016
Melissa McCarthy, Kristin Wiig, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones make a formidable comic team in their own right - though McKinnon steals the show as oddball physics geek Holtzmann (the Egon, if you will).
July 14, 2016
It's no flawless classic, but it's an exciting and often funny ride through a neighborhood where something strange is going on.
July 14, 2016
This might have worked if the 1984 film were less well remembered, but it looms large over this production, which does little to distinguish itself.
July 14, 2016
These characters might even be more fun to watch in a movie that wasn't as beholden to its source. I'm saying I want a sequel, and maybe you should too. This one's pretty good. But it had a chance to be great.
July 14, 2016
McCarthy, Wiig, McKinnon and Jones prove to be a relentlessly inventive comic ensemble. And Hemsworth is a revelation as a guy who's blissfully unaware of his sheer incompetence.
July 14, 2016
I would have preferred that they simply had shut their naysayers down by producing a better movie.
July 14, 2016
The real triumph of this new Ghostbusters is that it doesn't feel like an inversion, or an experiment, or a novelty. It just feels funny.
July 14, 2016
Hovering spirits of Ghostbusters past prove more treat than trick for Paul Feig's energetic reboot of the storied 1980s comedy franchise.
