Despite all the controversy surrounding Writer/Director Paul Feig’s Ghostbusters, I found it mostly a lot of fun. Co-Writer Katie Dippold’s contribution to the banter of the female team of ghost hunters and Melissa McCarthy’s exhuberance moved the story along briskly and joyfully.
Instead of a dynamic experience, this was simply a pleasant diversion. And that is not the fault of McCarthy, Kristin Wiig, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones.
I give Ghostbusters a 3.4 out of 5.
