Synopsis: When three scientists lose their grants, and are kicked out of Columbia University, they start a ghost extraction and termination business. What starts out as a great entrepreneurial venture turns for the worse when the forces of the ancient God Gozer seem to be more than the Ghostbusters can handle.

Fact: Had Ghostbusters had their original desired cast the change in credits would read:

John Belushi - Dr. Peter Venkman

John Candy - Louis Tully

Eddie Murphy - Winston Zeddmore

Sandra Bernhard - Janine Melnitz

Paul Rubens - Gozer

Trivia - Ghostbusters was Larry Kings film debut.

Movie Mistake: The window facing the city in Dana's apartment switches back and forth from day to night during her gate keeper possession scene.

My Take: It appears that there are two lines in this film that have made Premiere Magazines top 100 movie lines and I used neither of them. #68 "Dogs and cats living together! Mass hysteria!" and #19 "Well, there's something you don't see every day.". I always remembered the kick ass quote and use it sparingly to this day. This was a fun movie but I never quite got the mass hysteria that went along with it. Ghostbusters was the highest grossing comedy of all time until Home Alone came along and shattered that record. Like I said, a good movie but not even close to being one of Bill Murrays top five.
