Agree with everything that was said in this video. It's not so much that the movie rehashed the same exact story line from the first movie, but it did so in a way that treats the first film like it was a fluke. I understand that having our characters start from nothing to becoming Ghostbusters worked wonders for the first film, but you cannot do the same thing over again without looking contrived.

The only film that I can think of that rehashed the first film's story line was Back to the Future Part III. That film may have hit the same beats, but it was different in ways that made it feel fresh for the characters and it didn't downplay the first movie.

For all it's faults, I will give Ghostbusters 2 credit for introducing the Slime Thrower. That's my favorite Ghostbuster gear. :)
