Ghostbusters (1984) (3.5/4)


Who're ya gonna call? Hysterically funny movie about three former professors running around NYC capturing ghosts. Business is exceptionally good because we just happen to be on the verge of Armageddon and it's up to the boys to save the day. Great song. Some scenes were filmed at Columbia University and the story goes, instead of charging fee for the use of the property, Columbia gets a small royalty from the film that can only be spent on the upkeep of the lawn in front of their main library. Don't know if it's true, but it's very nice grass.
