    The original Ghostbusters will always be a classic that means something special to me. The good news is, there’s a whole new generation that’s about to feel that way about this one. And more power to them.

  • Calvin Wilson

    This reboot starring some of today’s finest comic actors — male or female — is a wonderfully hilarious and boldly imaginative creation in its own right.

    St. Louis Post-Dispatch Full Review
  • Barry Hertz

    Paul Feig’s female-led reboot of the long-dormant franchise is thrilling, hilarious, lovingly crafted and the wild, colourful, giddy blockbuster this otherwise staid summer movie season so desperately needs.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Tasha Robinson

    Ghostbusters is a lively, hilarious crowd-pleaser, which is all that's really required of a big summer action comedy.

    The Verge Full Review
  • Nigel M Smith

    Though hats are respectfully doffed, this is a four-woman show, deftly managed to allow all the leads – McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones – a chance to showcase their own distinct brands of comedy.

    The Guardian Full Review
  • Joe Walsh

    Yes, the cynical argument that Sony needed a franchise to hold its own against the might of Marvel may have something in it. But put the cynicism aside and what you have is a hilarious action-comedy that puts four great comedic women front and centre, with Feig dexterously balancing homage with originality.

  • Robbie Collin

    Its jokes, effects and sparkler-bright cast chemistry need nothing to fall back on.

    The Telegraph Full Review
  • Stephanie Zacharek

    The movie glows with vitality, thanks largely to the performers, who revel in one another’s company.

    Time Full Review
  • Joshua Rothkopf

    It turns out it’s okay to cross streams: 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 Out New York Full Review
  • Amy Nicholson

    The big CG sequences are less captivating than simply watching the four ladies kick it with a pizza. Wiig and McCarthy nestle into their comfortable roles as the soft-spoken priss and the bustling madwoman, leaving room for Jones to barge in with her big punch lines. But keep your eyes on the background. That’s where Jones’s Saturday Night Live costar McKinnon lurks, quietly transforming herself into a movie star.

    MTV News Full Review
  • Brian Truitt

    McCarthy and Wiig are solid as the two pals who have to mend fences amid paranormal goings-on, but Jones is great as the quartet’s boisterous voice of reason and McKinnon is the film’s biggest and quirkiest standout.

    USA Today Full Review
  • Sara Stewart

    Overall, though, Paul Feig’s (“Spy”) reboot of the 1984 classic is a goofy, big-hearted romp.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Lawrence Toppman

    This good-humored bonding story emphasizes the actresses’ gifts, rather than their gender.

    Charlotte Observer Full Review
  • Steven Rea

    McCarthy, Wiig, McKinnon, and Jones bring a spirit of spontaneity to their interactions; it's not exactly seat-of-the-pants improv, but it doesn't feel blocked-out and belabored, either.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Blake Goble

    Paul Feig’s Ghostbusters is sturdy summer entertainment, at once a freaky comedy and an unexpectedly effective action film.

    Consequence of Sound Full Review
  • Ann Hornaday

    Sunny, slimy and profoundly silly, the new, lady-centric reboot of Ghostbusters immediately silences the backlash and bluster that’s preceded it.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Moira Macdonald

    What’s crucial here, as in the original film, is the chemistry between the cast members. And though McKinnon’s the standout, the four women click together like Legos.

    The Seattle Times Full Review
  • Jesse Hassenger

    As enjoyable as this movie is, sometimes it feels like it’s holding back; no one’s id runs wild. But the limitations of Ghostbusters make Wiig, McCarthy, McKinnon, and Jones even more valuable. They make a big franchise-starter warmer and more endearing than it needs to be.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Dana Stevens

    The real reason to see it — as was the case with the original, and with the past two Feig/McCarthy collaborations, "Bridesmaids" and "Spy" —has to do with the universally excellent cast who establish an easy tone of camaraderie and loopy banter.

    Slate Full Review
  • Andrew O'Hehir

    Feig’s Ghostbusters is a goofy, free-floating romp with an anarchic spirit of its own, a fresh set of scares and laffs and a moderate dose of girl power that is unlikely to seem confrontational to anyone beyond the most confirmed basement-dwelling Gamergate troll. Full Review
  • Manohla Dargis

    Sliding into theaters on a river of slime and an endless supply of good vibes, 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 Times Full Review
  • Robert Abele

    The getting-to-know-them is the best part of this Ghostbusters: these women are a true democratic caucus of funny. That leaves the aforementioned bloat — CGI bigness and the current vogue for drawn-out showdowns — the only nagging glitch, although it’s all slickly rendered by the visual effects team.

    TheWrap Full Review
  • Tim Grierson

    This Ghostbusters doesn’t lazily insert the actresses into the original characters’ roles, instead taking the time to come up with new dynamics — and far more pathos — for this quartet.

    Screen International Full Review
  • Kimberley Jones

    The actresses are so quick and so supple, the force of their individual personalities and their irresistible camaraderie hoik the film up from its middling story and scripted jokes. I would have happily stayed in my seat another two hours to continue keeping their company. Just in a better movie.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Steve Persall

    Ghostbusters is back, it's not bad, get used to it.

    Tampa Bay Times Full Review
  • Jordan Raup

    While it doesn’t quite reach the height of laughter or thrills of Feig’s best work, Ghostbusters has a persistent dose of rollicking, scrappy fun that the ideal summer blockbuster should contain — all the way past the last credits.

    The Film Stage Full Review
  • James Berardinelli

    This is a mediocre horror/comedy that deserves neither high praise nor disparagement.

    ReelViews Full Review
  • Ty Burr

    The movie is genial, sloppy, slightly above average summer movie fun.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Peter Travers

    The big surprise here is McKinnon, also an SNL MVP (her Hillary is already iconic). She's a live-wire whose every gesture, reaction and line-reading seems fresh and off-the-wall — a spontaneous eruption of hellfire hilarity.

    Rolling Stone Full Review
  • Jake Cole

    When it's good, this new Ghostbusters is funny, driven, sometimes even a bit scary.

    Slant Magazine Full Review
  • Anthony Lane

    Another hitch, for Feig, is that, whereas the cheesiness of the effects in the earlier “Ghostbusters” was part of its rackety charm, no current audience will settle for anything less than a welter of wizardry. And so he piles it on, until whole sections of the movie collapse beneath the visual crush.

    The New Yorker Full Review
  • Joe Morgenstern

    Silly is endangered these days, and normal has come under withering fire from stupendous, yet tedious, visual effects. Busting ghosts used to be a lot more fun.

    Wall Street Journal Full Review
  • Bill Goodykoontz

    The new Ghostbusters is a pretty funny movie, a goofy take on the goofy original that has some good laughs and a dopey story.

    Arizona Republic Full Review
  • Mike Scott

    It is funny at times, it is scary at times, it is downright silly at times, and it is action-packed at times. In its best moments, it's all of those things at once.

    New Orleans Times-Picayune Full Review
  • Kate Stables

    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 Film Full Review
  • Jonathan Pile

    The film works for the most part, and even though the laughs notably dry up as the CGI spectacular kicks into gear, its feelgood vibes will most likely have already won you over.

    Empire Full Review
  • Matt Singer

    Warts and all, the new Ghostbusters is still one of the best tentpoles of the summer (admittedly, that’s not saying much). It doesn’t tarnish the legacy of the original movie, and its own legacy might have been even stronger if it hadn’t worried about paying homage to the old Ghostbusters quite so intensely.

    ScreenCrush Full Review
  • Chris Nashawaty

    With a cast as daring and quick as this one, Ghostbusters is too mild and plays it too safe.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Eric Kohn

    While the new Ghostbusters successfully empowers female movie stars, that’s not the movie’s selling point. However, it’s the only justification for its existence.

    indieWIRE Full Review
  • Susan Wloszczyna

    The same weakness that has plagued a goodly portion of major releases this year that rely on past successes for their reason to exist rears up again: the lack of the new and fresh. Full Review
  • Rene Rodriguez

    The movie will disappoint basement-dwellers who worried a female-centric Ghostbusters would somehow ruin their childhoods, because it isn’t bad enough to hate. But the film is an even bigger letdown for fans of Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Leslie Jones and Kate McKinnon, who are forced to play most of this material straight, with no room for comic improvisation.

    Miami Herald Full Review
  • Roger Moore

    The script, by Feig and veteran “Madtv/The Heat” writer Kate Dippold, allows room for a sea of cameos with precious little that’s funny for any of the stars, or the “guest stars” to say.

    Movie Nation Full Review
  • Justin Chang

    A cheerful summer lark that briefly achieves comic liftoff but peters out well before its overblown Times Square climax, it proudly demonstrates that mediocrity — whether in the hunting of malevolent apparitions or the making of a mainstream comedy — is not, and never has been, an exclusively male pursuit.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Stephen Whitty

    The all-new, mostly female Ghostbusters reboot is in theaters, full of terrific special effects, icky green slime, a horribly haunted Manhattan and, yes, the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man. But the big laughs you’d expect from a "Bridesmaids" reunion of director Paul Feig and stars Kristen Wiig and Melissa McCarthy never materialize.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Peter Debruge

    While both funnier and scarier than Ivan Reitman’s 1984 original, this otherwise over-familiar remake from “Bridesmaids” director Paul Feig doesn’t do nearly enough to innovate on what has come before.

    Variety Full Review
  • Rodrigo Perez

    Not even the funniest actors on the planet could save what is an occasionally humorous, but largely unremarkable rehash.

    The Playlist Full Review
  • David Edelstein

    The new Ghostbusters isn’t a horror, exactly. It’s just misbegotten. It never lives.

    New York Magazine (Vulture) Full Review
  • Melissa Anderson

    There is an easy camaraderie and chemistry among the central quartet, a harmony that continues when Chris Hemsworth, charmingly stupid, enters as the phantom-vanquishing squad's receptionist. Yet the main performers rarely get to display their individual idiosyncratic strengths.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • David Rooney

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

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Mick LaSalle

    To put it bluntly, Wiig and McCarthy are funny, but Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones aren’t. McKinnon, in particular, is shockingly out of place, and she helps drag down the movie.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Peter Rainer

    All I can say is, I certainly hope this dreary, bleary comedy doesn’t end up serving as a referendum on anything. That would be a disservice to women, not to mention movies.

    Christian Science Monitor Full Review
  • Richard Roeper

    Ghostbusters is a horror from start to finish, and that’s not me saying it’s legitimately scary. More like I was horrified by what was transpiring onscreen.
