Erin is up for tenure at Columbia University; and then she is shocked to find out that her old friend, Abby, has put her book on Amazon for sale. This book on paranormal activity made Erin the laughing stock of her field. She confronts Abby to ask here to take the book down. Abby agrees to do it, but only if Erin comes with her and Holtzman to find a suspected ghost. During this, Patty, an MTA worker, makes a ghost discovery of her own. She finds Erin, Abby, and Holtzman to tell them about her ghost. All four band together to fight ghost. During their investigation, they realized that paranormal activity is increasing and must find the cause. However, this hobby becomes a job when all 4 women leave their employment or is fired. They find a place, hire a sexy but dumb receptionist Kevin, and improve their inventions. Their feats are posted to YouTube but no one believes them. Well … that is … until they start calling. So who you gonna call?

Although it has the same title, it is not a remake of the 1984 classic Ghostbusters. It does get creepy at moments to frighten the audience, but it’s done with humor. This movie can easily stand on it’s own, but you need to see the first film to get some of the cameos. Unlike some films, the best jokes are NOT in the trailer. Each women is given a distinct personality, strength, and weakness to make the audience connect to the character. Although this movie makes you LOL (as in texting it but not laughing), it quickly makes up for itself with puns, action, and suspense. This is a good matinee movie to see in 3D. And stay past the end crawl.

I give this 3.5 out of 5 stars

Too sexy for academia – Erin

Come here often – Holtzman

You were never invited – Abby

You are just a bundle of joy. Aren’t you? – Patty

Hey, that man went out the wrong door – Kevin

This world cannot be cleansed soon enough – Rowan
