Physicists Abby Yates and Erin Gilbert are co-authors of a research book which posits the existence of paranormal phenomena such as ghosts. Gilbert has disowned the work and become a professor at Columbia University, while Yates continues to study the paranormal at a technical college with eccentric engineer Jillian Holtzmann. Gilbert learns Yates has republished the book, threatening her bid for tenure at Columbia. She reunites with Yates and, in exchange for Yates removing the book from publication, reluctantly agrees to assist her and Holtzmann in a paranormal investigation.
In all honesty, I haven’t seen the old ghostbusters movie. I believe its a good thing because I can give this movie a fair review on its own. At first I was excited to see the movie because Melissa McCarthy was in it so it had to be funny. Though little have I known… the actors that I didn’t know were more hilarious. The movie was very funny. The actresses were dorky cool. The movie could’ve been better but at the same time it was great all the same. I’m glad I went to see it when it first came out.
