Overview

Ivan Reitman's sequel to the phenomenally successful Ghostbusters is looser and more self-assured than the original. The film opens with a title reading "Five Years Later" and finds the ghostbusters living in hard times. A restraining order has forbidden the boys to partake in paranormal warfare, and as a result they have had to seek other lines of work. Ray Dan Aykroyd and Winston Ernie Hudson spend their time performing at children's' birthday parties, and Egon Harold Ramis is busy conducting experiments investigating the effect of human emotions on the environment, leaving ghostbusting behind. Venkman Bill Murray and Dana Sigourney Weaver have split up. Venkman now hosts a local cable show called "The World of the Psychic." Dana, now divorced and the mother of a little baby named Oscar, works as an art restorer in a museum -- and this is where the plot kicks in. While Dana is restoring a portrait of a 16th-century tyrant by the name of Vigo the Carpathian, the portrait becomes hexed. The evil Vigo wants to return to life by taking over the body of Dana's little child. Vigo has enlisted Dana's boss, Janosz Poha Peter MacNicol, to compel Dana to cooperate. Soon dirty sludge and slime flow through the streets of Manhattan, and the ghostbusters have to reunite to save the city from a funky paranormal evil.

    Almost as Unintentionally Funny as Bush's Presidency

    Have you ever cut your toe nails just a wee bit too short? And for several days, there was this kind of sensitve, painful feeling in your feet? Yes, so have I. This film reminds me of that feeling on ten toes. Bill Muarry deserves cred. But, this film is a crime against humanity so that those guilty should be tried in a cage.

    Safe Sequel

    Five years after the first film and the Ghostbusters are back together in a film which after the frenetic energy of it's predecessor is a much calmer beast. The performances from the regulars are watchable as before however it's Peter McNichols performance as Dana Barrett's art museum boss which is the stand out with some of the funniest lines of the film ''Why Am I drippings with goo?'' and his immeadiate disdain for Peter Venkman with the line ''I have seen you on the television...quite enjoy.'' After a strong first third of the film (after the courtroom scenes) it does slow down a little but doesen't make it any less watchable. The special effects are excellent and the script by stars Dan Ackroyd and Harold Ramis - despite some repetitive elements from the first film - is nevertheless enthralling concerning a slime substance that feeds off positive and negative emotions. Overall an acceptable sequel to one of the biggest films of the 1980's and one which will please GB fans and casuals alike.
