Ghostbusters (2016) Extended Edition
Erin Gilbert and Abby Yates are a pair of unheralded authors who write a book
that ghosts are real. A few years later, Gilbert lands a prestigious teaching position at Columbia University, but her book resurfaces and she is laughed out of academia. When ghosts invade Manhattan, Gilbert reunites with Yates, teaming up with a nuclear engineer, Jillian Holtzmann, and a subway worker, Patty Tolan, to save the world from a mysterious evil and powerful demon known as Rowan who can exercise control over human forms.
“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
“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
“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.” – The Wrap
