Paul Feig grossly misunderstood the point of the original Ghostbusters, and it shows. It wasn't just sticking a bunch of funny people together, it was carefully selecting a cast who could work well off one another and telling an interesting story with them. This movie does neither. Paul Feig seems to be under the impression that the Ghostbusters are supposed to be superheroes, and while they might seem that way to some, it's only in the same way that a firefighter might be considered a superhero. The Ghostbusters are exterminators, like cockroach exterminators. If you've got a ghost problem, call the Ghostbusters and they'll handle it to the best of their ability. That's the idea. They aren't supposed to be like the Avengers, having big epic superhero fights in the middle of an exploding city, that's ridiculous. Paul Feig doesn't know what the Ghostbusters are, and would rather insult anyone who points it out than own up to it.
