The original Ghostbusters will always be a classic that means something special to me. The good news is, there's a whole new generation that's about to feel that way about this one. And more power to them.
Time Out New York -
It turns out it's okay to cross streams: Here's a summer movie starring a girl squad proud of its big brains and tacky jumpsuits. You could call that a supernatural event in itself.
The Guardian -
Though hats are respectfully doffed, this is a four-woman show, deftly managed to allow all the leads - McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones - a chance to showcase their own distinct brands of comedy.
The getting-to-know-them is the best part of this Ghostbusters: these women are a true democratic caucus of funny. That leaves the aforementioned bloat - CGI bigness and the current vogue for drawn-out showdowns - the only nagging glitch, although it's all slickly rendered by the visual effects team.
Following a ghost invasion of Manhattan, paranormal enthusiasts Erin Gilbert and Abby Yates, nuclear engineer Jillian Holtzmann, and subway worker Patty Tolan band together to stop the otherworldly threat.
