Have you ever watched a movie that made you laugh so hard you cried? It’s not something that happens to me often, but it did happen to me twice while watching Ghostbusters. When I wasn’t crying from laughter, I was simply laughing. Considering how amazingly funny the cast is, I am not surprised.
I really enjoyed watching Ghostbusters, so much so that I would watch it again. Which is what I plan to do now that it is officially in theaters.
As for there being an all female lead cast, given how talented they all are and how good that is for our kiddos to see, I am totally OK with it. It in no way messed with the Ghostbusters legacy. In fact, the original film made for some fun cameos.
If you’re wondering if it’s OK for the kiddos, it’s what I always say…it depends on your child. While the ghosts aren’t scary or creepy looking, I did jump at one point (but that was because of being surprised not scared). Also, a scene did involve the use of the middle finger a number of times and the occasional bad word (but nothing that stands out for me as I think back on the film).
Despite some parts that were a bit cheesy (as it should be), I really enjoyed the movie. Even as I remembered the scenes that had me cracking up, I laughed again. I’d suggest that you watch the film in 3D and that you stay until all the movie credits are done.
Paranormal researcher Abby Yates (Melissa McCarthy) and physicist Erin Gilbert are trying to prove that ghosts exist in modern society. When strange apparitions appear in Manhattan, Gilbert and Yates turn to engineer Jillian Holtzmann for help. Also joining the team is Patty Tolan, a lifelong New Yorker who knows the city inside and out. Armed with proton packs and plenty of attitude, the four women prepare for an epic battle as more than 1,000 mischievous ghouls descend on Times Square.
Bitmoji users can dress their digital avatars in a tee featuring the classic Ghostbusters logo, don a Ghostbusters uniform and even turn into the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man. The collaboration also features a spectacular new theme pack with classic lines from the films – and a very special appearance from Slimer. Click here to check it out.
