Ghost­busters (PG) This is the fast-paced, fun-filled, fe­male-charged re­boot of Ghost­busters, with the tal­ented Melissa Mc­Carthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McK­in­non and Les­lie Jones tak­ing over ghost­stomp­ing du­ties from Bill Mur­ray, Dan Aykroyd and the other boys. There’s still a man in charge of Ghost­busters, though: direc­tor Paul Feig. There’s a chal­lenge in re­mak­ing such a pop­u­lar film. While there are in-jokes for diehard Ghost­busters fans and cameo roles for Mur­ray, Aykroyd and oth­ers, it’s also an en­joy­able su­per­nat­u­ral com­edy for one and all. It’s a bit scarier than the orig­i­nal, with some of the ghosts nasty, but as the PG rat­ing sug­gests, noth­ing to faint over. Also star­ring a hand­some and dim re­cep­tion­ist named Kevin (the won­der­ful Chris Hemsworth, who keeps his Aus­tralian ac­cent).
