Ghostbusters (2016) | Ratings & Reviews

"I was beyond excited when it was announced that Paul Feig was rebooting Ghostbusters with a handful of my favourite comedians. And naturally I was shocked that such a large chunk of the movie-watching world objected to the premise. I very much wanted this film to be so transcendental, so side-splittingly funny, that those people would melt on the floor of their parents’ basements in remorse."

Flicks, Leonie HaydenFlicks

"Both funnier and scarier than Ivan Reitman’s 1984 original, [although it] doesn’t do nearly enough to innovate on what has come before."


"For all its warm-hearted fun, well-crafted thrills, careful nostalgia and girl-powered gadgetry, this fast-paced family film doesn't always feel like a natural fit for Hollywood's favourite genre-bender."

Total FilmTotal Film

"Here’s a summer movie starring a girl squad proud of its big brains and tacky jumpsuits. You could call that a supernatural event in itself."

Time OutTime Out

"The 2016 vintage of Ghostbusters speaks to its time with the same withering comic accuracy and hot-air-balloon-sized sense of fun as the 1984 original."

The TelegraphThe Telegraph

"The new, cheerfully silly "Ghostbusters" is that rarest of big-studio offerings - a movie that is a lot of enjoyable, disposable fun."

The New York TimesThe New York Times

"Though hats are respectfully doffed, this is a four-woman show, deftly managed to allow all the leads a chance to showcase their own distinct brands of comedy."

The GuardianThe Guardian

"While the dialogue doesn't labour the point, this is a film about women brought together by a shared intellectual passion, shrugging off the mostly male authority figures who try to put them in their place."

The AgeThe Age

"Some of you are going to love it. And some of you are going to hate it. Me, I'm happy I chose the former."


"Despite the inspired idea of rebooting the Ghostbusters as gal-geeks, the movie's not great either"

New Zealand HeraldNew Zealand Herald

"It's all busy-ness, noise and chaos, with zero thrills and very little sustainable comic buoyancy."
