If there's something strange in the neighborhood...
If there's something weird and it don't look good...
Who ya gonna call?
(best song made for a movie ever)
Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Harold Ramis, and Ernie Hudson make a perfect team. They work so well off each other, but this is truly Murray's film. This film showcased Bill Murray's full talent. We saw small tastes of it in supporting turns from Caddyshack and Tootsie, but this film made the world take notice to the awesomeness of Bill Murray in such an awesome film. You also get terrific supporting turns from Rick Moranis (who is perfect comic relief) and Sigourney Weaver (who is perfect eye candy and talent). Special effects look amazing. The smart science fiction and clever comedy go hand in hand. It's even a bit scary at some points. The snappy quotes get better one after another from "It's true. This man has no dick." to "If someone asks if you are a god, you say yes".
This is a defining 80's masterpiece. Gets better with each viewing. If you've never seen this film, you need to go home and either watch it online, watch it on Netflix (if it's on) pop in a Ghostbusters disc and enjoy. But there's no such thing as someone who's never seen Ghostbusters....right?.....RIGHT?!?
