Ghostbusters (1984)

In this classic 1984 comedy, three odd-ball scientists (Bill Murray, Dan Akroyd and Harold Ramis) get kicked out of their cushy positions at a university in New York City where they studied the occult. They decide to set up shop in an old firehouse and become Ghostbusters, trapping pesky ghosts, spirits, haunts, and poltergeists for money. But when a woman (Sigourney Weaver) stumbles upon a gateway to another dimension, one which will release untold evil upon the city, the Ghostbusters are called on to save the Big Apple.

Ghost Busters is a lavishly produced ($32 million) but only intermittently impressive all-star comedy lampoon of supernatural horror films.

The leads' chemistry is almost, well, spooky, Dan Aykroyd's nerdy enthusiasm rubbing deliciously against a persona-perfecting turn from Bill Murray - and there's even the odd surprise.

"Ghostbusters" is a head-on collision between two comic approaches that have rarely worked together very successfully.

This movie is an exception to the general rule that big special effects can wreck a comedy.
