Ghostbusters II
1989
**½
Director: Ivan Reitman
Cast: Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Sigourney Weaver, Harold Ramis, Rick Moranis, Ernie Hudson, Annie Potts, Peter MacNicol

Five years later most New Yorkers have forgotten that anything supernatural ever took place in the city and Ghostbusters have become obsolete. This gives the scriptwriters Dan Aykroyd and Harold Ramis an excuse to retell the same story. Murray gets to woo Weaver for the second time and the team again struggle to convince the Mayor that something sinister and paranormal is about to happen. Aside from a few funny gags, this is a pretty tired sequel. Followed by a reboot with a female cast in 2016 and a belated sequel Ghostbusters: Afterlife in 2022.
