I had watched this show as a kid and loved it. But after growing up and seeing the new Ghostbusters, I realize that this movie actually sucked. I couldn't even make it the whole way through. The jokes fall flat, the acting is miserable, and it is super sexist. The main character is some sort of creepy pervert who uses his business to force himself into a woman's house and then tries to physically forced himself on her. It was pretty gross.

I don't know if it was just over hyped or if it doesn't hold up as well as people think but I only laughed hard a few times. The story was great but for a comedy there was a lack of laughs. Maybe I just don't have a soul or something. Edit: I've watched more classic comedies and I understand the type of humor now. I have a new appreciation for this movie

Ghost Busters, the original, will always remain a five star classic. However, this supposed Hi-Def version I just bought is a horrible copy. The resolution and graininess is simply awful. I would expect this quality of a low Standard Definition old style Video Tape...really sad. I'd loved to see a remastered 4K version of this classic.
