Trivia

During the 1990s, Dan Aykroyd's concept for a third Ghostbusters film revolved around the Ghostbusters traveling to an alternate, hellish version of New York City. Columbia Pictures balked at the proposed $150m budget. Ultimately, Ghostbusters (2016) ended up with a $144m budget, although inflation means it cost less than Aykroyd's proposed sequel. See more »

Goofs

When Erin first meets Holtzmann, Holtzmann is wearing green gloves. She takes off one glove but then both gloves appear in her jacket pocket. The position of the gloves varies between shots as well. See more »

Quotes

Tour Guide: The Aldridge Mansion is the only 19th century home in New York City preserved both inside and out. At the time of its construction, it was one of the most elegant homes in existence featuring every luxury including a face bidet and an anti-Irish security fence.

This is NOT the worst movie of all time.
11 July 2016 | by See all my reviews

Some people are saying that this is the wort movie of all time. It is not. It is merely a really bad movie with no redeeming qualities, and it insults your intelligence.

And, most of the YouTube videos made slamming it are 100s of times funnier than this movie.

Seriously, the movie is just not funny. In fact Batman and Robin (George Clooney and whoever played Robin) had more humor in it than this movie does, and that movie was worse than this one--that is how not funny this movie is.

Save your money. Read a cereal box. It will cost less and be funnier.
