It’s been quite a long time since I last saw Ghostbusters, but although it is meant to be a family-orientated film, there are some quite dodgy parts in this.
I can’t really call the character played by Bill Murray, Dr. Peter Venkman, a ‘good guy’. From the first scene, it was quite clear that he was a bit of a lech. At the same time, the actor did a good job of playing the character and he was a good source of comedy in this film.
It was interesting to see the differences in this film compared to films nowadays, such as the hairstyle of the actresses in this and the special effects that were used. It was quite strange to see Sigourney Weaver so young in this.
There were a number of recognisable actors in this film and there were some really good comedy moments. Some of the lines used were cringe-worthy, like when Peter talks to the woman played by Sigourney Weaver, but for a family film, this is quite entertaining… although it does have a couple of adult-themed things.
I watched this with my sister and my niece and both of them seemed to enjoy it. For me, it was another way of recapturing my childhood. It was an entertaining way to spend an hour and a half.
