Product description

Product Description

Comedy double bill. In 'Ghostbusters', New York parapsychologists Peter Venkman (Bill Murray), Raymond Stanz (Dan Aykroyd) and Egon Spenler (Harold Ramis) decide to go into business as Ghostbusters when their scholastic grant is withdrawn. Initially scorned, the trio become celebrities after ridding a hotel of a troublesome ghoul, and are called in by musician Dana Barrett (Sigourney Weaver) when she experiences strange disturbances in her Central Park apartment. In 'Ghostbusters 2', the boys in the boiler suits have hit harder times having been sued by municipal authorities, and they are now reduced to doing the circuit of kiddies parties. However, it turns out that there is a physical embodiment of evil slurping around beneath the city, and the men find themselves re-employed once again.

From Amazon.co.uk

Ghostbusters:

Dan Aykroyd and Harold Ramis wrote the script, but Bill Murray gets all the best lines and moments in this 1984 comedy directed by Ivan Reitman (Meatballs). The three comics, plus Ernie Hudson, play the New York City-based team that provides supernatural pest control, and Sigourney Weaver is the love interest possessed by an ancient demon. Reitman and company are full of original ideas about hobgoblins--who knew they could "slime" people with green plasma goo?--but hovering above the plot is Murray's patented ironic view of all the action. Still a lot of fun, and an obvious model for sci-fi comedies such as Men in Black.

Ghostbusters II:

Much less fun than its predecessor, this 1989 sequel starts off on a bleak note by telling us our heroes from Ghostbusters have been on the skids for five years and Bill Murray's lead character never did hook up with Sigourney Weaver's lovely symphony-musician character. What's more, she has a kid by somebody else. Everybody's on an uphill climb, and Ghostbusters II never soars the way the first film did, despite having the same director, Ivan Reitman (Dave, Kindergarten Cop). The lame plot finds the boys attempting to prevent a disaster on New York City caused by too many bad vibes in the Big Apple. Yikes! Fortunately, screenwriters Dan Aykroyd and Harold Ramis have penned enough good one-liners to keep Murray busy, and if the ghostly special effects no longer surprise as they did in Ghostbusters, they're at least inventive.--Tom Keogh, Amazon.com
