This is a tribute to my 3 year old who has absolutely fallen in love with this movie. Finally a movie I don't mind watching 6 times a week. He loves the "big snow guy" and when "the monsters gonna come up out of the chair". There are a couple phrases he has picked up from it that I am not to proud of, but at least it isn't pornography or some of the stupid robot type cartoons they are watching today.

Anyway--absolute classic film that stars Bill Murray--my fav-, Dan Akroyd, Harold Ramis, Rick Moranis, Sigourney Weaver, Ernie Hudson, and Annie Potts.
"Who you gonna call...." This is just a fun family film that make the monsters that aren't to scary. This film takes me back to the summer of 84 when I was 10. I went swimming everyday and the song was popular that summer along with I wear my sunglasses at night, and Footloose. Just a great flick that brings back nothing but positive memories for me.

I also like the names in it Dana Barrett--is my surname!! That is always cool when there is a movie with your name in it.

Favorite scene: Venkman getting slimed, hands down!

Love it, love it, love it! I have a 14" Mr. Stay Puft marshmallow man by my computer that I bought a few months back. I saw a very big die-cast Ecto-1 replica at a store thsi weekend that I think I may get soon to put next to Mr. Stay Puft.
I remember seeing this movie at the theaters. My brother and I were at the hospital waiting for our 1st cousin to be born and we were waiting most of the day and were pretty bored, so we snuck out and saw Ghostbusters and when we came back he had already been born. So when he has a birthday I always think about that. Bill Murray was soooo funny in this movie. I loved all of his lines. I especially like Rick Moranis in this movie. He was so quirky. Annie Potts had a great voice for a receptionist/secretary...she reminded me of Rosemary on Hong Kong Foey.
I thought the 1st one was much better that the sequel, but I do wish that they would all get together and make one more. Everyone else is making trilogies these days, so why not the Ghostbusters?!

Egon and Venkman are endlessly quotable, I love the dry characters in moviees, and this one has two. Ramis and Murray rule.

Dr. Raymond Stantz: I think we'd better split up.
Dr. Egon Spengler: Good idea.
Dr. Peter Venkman: Yeah... we can do more damage that way.

Dr. Peter Venkman: Egon, this reminds me of the time you tried to drill a hole through your head. Remember that?
Dr. Egon Spengler: That would have worked if you hadn't stopped me.

What can I say, this is comedy at close to its absolute finest. Every line's a classic, and for once, comedy and special effects mesh perfectly together. There's almost never been anyone better than Murray as Venkman in the last 20 years. I personally always liked Spengler the best, how he always explains everything in a politcially correct and sometimes unintelliglbe manner ("There's serious metal fatigue in all the load-bearing members, the wiring is sub-standard, it's completely inadequate for our energy needs, and the neighborhood is like a demiltarized zone.") May Satan take the soul of hte idiot who wants to remake this.

My 7 year old son absolutely loves this movie. For a while he was wearing his backpack around the house, which held some of my vacuum cleaner attachments that he was using to capture "ghosts". I love the music from the movie, I love the actors, and as you said, it's a movie that everyone in the family can watch and you don't have to cover your kids ears everyother second of the movie.

They certainly do not make movies like they once used to and Ghostbusters proves that. This movie had no sex, gore or curses yet it such a remarkable movie and continues to be to this day. Everytime I watch it makes me feel as if I am back in 1984 while being 8yrs old. The dvd is quite good and well worth the $10.00 that many stores sell it for.
