An unnecessary remake of the 1984 comedy of the same name, Ghostbusters is a cringe worthy comedy that pales by comparison to the hilarious original. Filled with corny jokes and lame characters, the only reason that I finished watching this film was that I had time to kill after our plane was diverted to Halifax, Nova Scotia during a snowstorm which made it too dangerous to land in St. John’s, Newfoundland on the way back from Cancun, Mexico (Klaus Ming December 2016).
