    • Dana Barrett: Oh, good, that makes me feel so much better.
    • Dr. Peter Venkman: Oh, my *God*. Look at all the junk food!
    • Dana Barrett: No, goddammit. Look, this wasn't...
    • Dr. Peter Venkman: You actually eat this stuff?
    • Dana Barrett: Look, this wasn't here! There was *nothing* here! There was a space and there was a building or something with flames coming out of it, and there were creatures writhing around, and they were growling and snarling. And there were flames, and I heard a voice say "Zuul"! It was right here.

Ghostbusters is one of those rare movies where the original, fragile comic vision has survived a multimillion-dollar production.

Metacritic review by Roger Ebert

Chicago Sun-Times

Ghostbusters is a hoot. It's Murray's picture, and in a triumph of mind over matter, he blows away the film's boring special effects with his one-liners. Spotting a lusty, totally transformed, fire-breathing Slgourney Weaver, whose body has been overtaken by a spirit, Murray walks past her saying, That's a new look for you, isn't it? Thank you, Bill. And don't get outta here, you knucklehead. We like you in this kind of movie.
