Ghostbusters
1984
***
Director: Ivan Reitman
Cast: Dan Aykroyd, Bill Murray, Harold Ramis, Sigourney Weaver

Three scientists form a ghost capturing team just as paranormal activity is on the increase in New York City. Murray plays a deadpan womaniser and provides the jokes, Aykroyd and Ramis (who scripted the film) play it straight and give the expositional scientific gobbledygook. This fantasy comedy hit is sympathetically goofy but tonally all over the place. Followed by Ghostbusters II five years later.
