Plutôt décevant. Le film a un rythme inconstant, avec des temps morts et des blagues qui tombent souvent à plat. Avoir un cast féminin était une excellente idée, mais seule McKinnon se démarque vraiment. Aussi, une suite aurait probablement été préférable à un reboot (ça aurait ouvert des portes à plus de solidarité inter-générationnelle et inter-genre). Bref, ça vise à côté de la cible. Dommage.
2.1 stars. Twas alright! I was surprised, considering the amount of unnecessary furore the gender switch created, how much it adhered to the original formula. The script is peppered with some good jokes and it is worth watching for Kate McKinnon's captivatingly odd performance (which manages to just about transcend being a collection of quirks!) The ghosts, however, looked like they were from a hidden objects PC game
Every bit of dialogue or joke has no weight to the plot making scenes a mess of interchangeable parts. Story constantly stops for the improvised comedy leaving pacing all over the place and comes off more like a cringey SNL sketch than a movie. So many elements are just present without working towards whatever goal this movie was trying to accomplish.
The hate on this film is just ridiculous and sexist. It's definitely nowhere as near as the ORIGINAL GHOSTBUSTERS. The acting was not good as well but at least they tried. But Leslie Jones is funny (better than herself on SNL tbh). But the soundtrack is horrible.
all the people that shit on this movie simply for them being female are shitty people. too bad the movie just wasn't funny. the original ghostbusters, kids could watch it and like it but it had so many great jokes only adults would understand. this seemed aimed at preteens, the humour was juvenile and how many jokes can you make about being ghetto, being nerdy, and melissa mccarthy falling over. and the cameos..?
The original Ghostbusters lost its purity with Ghostbusters 2, and given that a franchise reboot was monetarily unstoppable, gender-flipping it was actually a novel, inspired, laudably risky idea. But instead of proving the girls can be funny too—which each lead had proved already—all it proves is that they can make painfully mediocre cash-ins, stretched thin on empty riff sessions. But more McKinnon movies, please.
2 - One for each unenthused giggle. Maybe if they soft-reboot this with a cast composed completely of disabled indigenous Muslim pansexual hermaphrodites of color, then it might possibly find its audience. Or they could just write a script that doesn't eat ass, either/or.
