Ghostbusters is primarily a showcase for Murray, who slinks through the movie muttering his lines in his usual cheeky fashion and getting off an occasionally hilarious crack that proves he's thoroughly enjoying himself.

Despite its flaws, I feel real affection for the original Ghostbusters. How could you not? It's goofy, funny, homey - it's genuine comfort food.

I had to watch the first Ghostbusters after seeing the god awful remake- it still holds up as a good kids movie, and is genuinely funny.

Very popular 80's movie about a group of scientists who are also paranormal hunters called Ghostbusters. Loads of action and special effects add to this adventure, which I thought was very well done. NIce to see all the comedic talents of Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Harold Ramis and Ernie Hudson as well as RIck Moranis Sigourney Weaver, and Annie Potts. Ghostbusters is hauntingly fun.

Dr. Peter Venkman: Well, I... I think so, but I'm sure there are no animals in there.

Dana Barrett: Look, this wasn't here! There was *nothing* here! There was this... space! And there was a building or something with flames coming out of it, and there were creatures writhing around, and they were growling and snarling. And there were flames, and I heard a voice say "Zuul"! It was right here.

SAPPHIREBEAR15 Jun 22, 2012

After losing their academic positions at Columbia University, a trio of misfit parapsychologists — Peter Venkman (Bill Murray), Raymond Stantz (Dan Aykroyd), and Egon Spengler (Harold Ramis) – establish a paranormal exterminator service known as "Ghostbusters" at a retired New York City firehouse. While still facing dire straits after setting up the company, they are summoned by the Sedgewick Hotel to investigate a haunting. At the hotel, they capture their first ghost and deposit it in a "containment unit" located in the basement of their office. Paranormal activity soon increases in New York City, and the Ghostbusters become celebrities containing it, while at the same time becoming increasingly burdened by the hectic schedule. To satisfy increased demand, they hire a fourth member, Winston Zeddemore (Ernie Hudson).
