I can’t believe there was such an outcry on social media against having an all female team headlining Ghostbusters, they were fantastic as the 2st century warriors of the paranormal. The ladies were so much fun to watch, but Kate McKinnon stole the show, she was hysterical in all of her scenes. However, the three other women weren’t comedic slouches, not by any means. If you loved the original Ghostbusters, you will love this one as well, trust me.
The only critique that my husband had was that the beginning took a bit long to set up, I didn’t agree, I like getting a backstory, no matter how long it takes. Once the characters made their introductions, got connected and their purpose established, hilarity ensued. I have to give a shout out to Chris Helmsworth, he played his part beautifully, I had no idea he could be so funny. I loved the dynamic between the ladies and Chris, it was nice to see the shoe on the other foot for once. He plays eye candy really, really well.
We laughed and laughed, we thoroughly enjoyed all of the cameos done by the originals, not gratuitous in the least, and we are up for another Ghostbusters, the ladies definitely made it worthwhile.
