The Ghostbusters reboot has actually done surprisingly well, due to a stream of decent reviews.

The film’s trailer, as we have discussed before, attracted more dislikes than any other trailer present on YouTube.

A few media outlets have claimed the film is actually pretty good; The Guardian said to “call off the trolls – Paul Feig’s female reboot is a blast.”

Robbie Collin in The Telegraph said, “The 2016 vintage of Ghostbusters speaks to its time with the same withering comic accuracy and hot-air-balloon-sized sense of fun as the 1984 original.”

New York Times went with a “new cheerfully silly Ghostbusters is the rarest of the big-studio offerings – a movie that is a lot of enjoyable disposable fun.”

“Girls rule, women are funny, get over it.”

However, it hasn’t all been praise.

Richard Lawson, critic for Vanity Fair, called it “a flat, occasionally charming disappointment.”

“It spends so much time doing battle with its legacy that it forgets to be its own movie, putting a talented cast to waste and marking another disappointment in this dreadful summer movie season.”

But even in the wake of the responses the film has gotten, people on Reddit still have to prove that they hate the film no matter what.


One thing mega-fans can’t seem to grasp is the fact that it’s a film. 

A piece of consumable media that will mean nothing next year and the year after.

Even The Sun‘s films editor Jamie East tweeted:

Suck it up nerds.

And as someone who has literally no affiliation with any of the movies, I say bravo to Paul Feig. For pulling off a decent movie.

And to all those still b**ping about an all female cast:
