Ghostbusters Review Roundup — Funny Feminist Action Or Flimsy Fan Service??

no title

The new Ghostbusters surely ain't afraid of no ghosts… but should they be afraid of film critics??

After getting an unnecessary amount of flack from self-appointed protectors of the original film and misogynistic Internet trolls, the highly-anticipated Sony reboot is finally hitting theaters this weekend!

To the delight of its defenders, the Paul Feig comedy is scoring generally positive early reviews — but that's not to say the gender-swapped reboot didn't have any ghastly misfires.

Even the critics who praised the film's heavy laughs and action agreed it suffered the overbearing presence of the original 1984 film — and sacrificed good storytelling opportunity for fan service. (Way too many cameos!)

Some critics also noted that leads Melissa McCarthy and Kristen Wiig didn't have the same magic as they did in past Feig collabs like Bridesmaids and Spy — but the presence of Leslie Jones and scene stealers Kate McKinnon and Chris Hemsworth made up for the lull in chemistry.

All in all, the reviews say audiences can expect a summer blockbuster full of spooky fun with a side of girl power — but maybe not much that's going to stick with you…

Ch-ch-check out the review roundup (below)!

Cats and dogs living together, mass hysteria!

The new Ghostbusters flick starring Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Kate McKinnon, and Leslie Jones is still a month away from opening, but it's already received quite a bit of backlash… and the women aren't having it anymore!

The GB cast members already appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live! last week to SLAM misogynistic trolls, but they're not stopping there as they recently did an interview with Entertainment Weekly where Wiig dished:

"You can't get better than the original. But it's a different movie, it's a different cast, it's many years later, and we've also done things that are different. It's not just about it starring women."

Jones then chimed in, saying:

Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Kate McKinnon, & Leslie Jones Destroy Misogynistic Trolls With The OG Ghostbusters — Watch!

Who you gonna call? Why, the original cast, of course!

There's only about a month until Ghostbusters gets rebooted with an all-female cast, which means there's less time than ever for misogynistic trolls to judge the movie before even getting a chance to see it.

Luckily, Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Kate McKinnon, and Leslie Jones don't seem too annoyed by their haters… because they know they're really just 45-year-old men living in their parents' basements! LOLz!!!

The Saturday Night Live regulars stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Wednesday to chat about the upcoming horror/comedy, and ended up getting a surprise of their own when the OG 'busters joined them onstage!

During the eight-way interview, Bill Murray, Annie Potts, Ernie Hudson, and Dan Aykroyd officially gave their slimy blessing to the ladies while admitting they were a little nervous about the remake themselves at first.

We can't imagine Bill saying he found the new film to be funny if it really were a dud… so we can't wait to see it when it possesses theaters July 15!

no title

We hope they didn't cross streams!

The Ghostbusters reboot has been getting a lot of backlash from fans, who — for one reason or another — think the film will tarnish the beloved franchise.

But director Paul Feig isn't letting those ghouls rain on his parade — especially on Ghostbusters Day!

To celebrate the anniversary of the original film's 1984 premiere, the director shared an EPIC photo on Twitter featuring both the old and new casts of the ghostly comedy!

He wrote in the caption:

"I mean, c'mon, how can this picture NOT make you happy? This is an epic group of people. Happy Ghostbusters Day!"

The snap featured Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Leslie Jones, and Kate McKinnon alongside original stars Bill Murray, Ernie Hudson, Annie Potts, and Dan Aykroyd — not to mention Ray Parker Jr., who wrote and performed the original Ghostbusters theme song!

What's even better is that both casts will appear together on Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Wednesday night! AH-Mazing!

Ch-ch-check out the cross-generational snap (above) to temporarily forget about the film's gender-fueled criticism!

Melissa McCarthy & Kristen Wiig Go Bold With Color While Leslie Jones & Kate McKinnon Play It Safe In Black At Elle's Women In Comedy Event

The Ghostbusters women attend Elle Women in Comedy event.

The guests of honor!

Elle's July cover girls Melissa McCarthy, Leslie Jones, Kristen Wiig, and Kate McKinnon were obviously at the mag's Women in Comedy event in LA Tuesday.

While Leslie and Kate played it safe in monochrome looks, their fellow co-stars were a bit more adventurous.

Melissa brought a healthy dose of color via her bright pink custom Judy B. Swartz dress. We love those bell cuffs!

But we were confused by Kristen's fancy silk Monique Lhuillier pajamas with pants that pooled on the floor.

Do people not hem slacks anymore? Is it not cool or something?

Well, three out of four ain't bad!
