Murray's Venkman is hilarious, and Weaver, Aykroyd, Ramis, and specially Moranis (who is a laugh riot!) etc are equally refreshing! This is an exciting, fast-paced, special-effected action/comedy CLASSIC! A definite entertainer!!
Apart from the performances, the direction is brilliant, the soundtrack is absolutely perfect, the special effects are amazing even by today's standards, and the theme song is indubitably THE most popular theme song of them all! So if you haven't guessed yet, to miss this movie is a crime!
Oomph!-meter (from 5): ****1/2 I was six years old when this movie hit theaters, and as such it definitely has a place in my heart. That may or may not affect my objectivity in this review, but tonight I watched "Ghostbusters" for the first time since I was a kid, and I found it to be the perfect 80's comedy.
Is the movie a bit cheesy along the way? Sure. But it's also iconic, and more importantly it's just plain fun. There's so much to pick up on with this movie when you watch it as an adult vs. as a kid. I laughed and laughed at the sight of the Stay-Puft Marshmallow Man. Sure, that scene is funny at any age, but you really have to be an adult to appreciate the absurdity of the towering monster roaming through the streets of New York with a huge smile on his face.

She's quite the looker in this movie--a big improvement from the Alien movies when she didn't have hair.
All in all I have to give this movie 10 stars. That's a rarity for me, as I seldom give a perfect score to any film. But "Ghostbusters" is just too fun and too well made not to warrant this distinction. This well done, well made film is a pleasure to watch, no matter your age! However good an idea it may have been to unleash Mr. Murray in an ''Exorcist''-like setting, this film hasn't gotten very far past the idea stage. Its jokes, characters and story line are as wispy as the ghosts themselves, and a good deal less substantial. When three parapsychologists
