Rated: PG Year: 1984 Cast: Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Sigourney Weaver, Rick Moranis, Harold Ramis
It's bedlam in the Big Apple when ghosts run amok in New York City. A ragtag team of professors-turned-exterminators sets out to capture the unruly haunters and prevent a disaster of Biblical proportions. Think "Old Testament" with "fire and brimstone coming down from the skies."
What Parents Like: Murray and company are in high comedic form and spirits as the wisecracking scientists. Weaver is a sultry demon.
What Kids Like: Get your proton guns ready. These phantoms pop up faster than the ghostbusters can zap and bottle them. The biggest demon turns out to be all fluff: the Sta-Puft Marshmallow Man.
