    Rated PG, 107 min. Directed by Ivan Reitman. Starring Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Harold Ramis, Sigourney Weaver, Rick Moranis, Annie Potts and Ernie Hudson.

    Blue Starlite Drive-In: The original Ghostbusters mined the comedy-horror genre way before it became the fashionably ironic and overused format it is today. The comedy here is solid gold, Murray is in peak form, and the effects are a lot of fun. Get slimed.
