Ghost Busters - 7

This is a surprisingly funny film. I had seen sections of the film on TV but only now have seen the it in its entirety. Bill Murray plays his regular role as his early comedy films (apparently the role was written for him). I thought the funniest character is actually Dr. Egon Spengler, played well by Harold Ramis, he plays the serious one who pretends to not get his own jokes (I saw the smirk on his face). The plot doesn't really have to go anywhere, it is about the supernatural after all, anything is possible. But the dialogue and characters are hilarious. Apparently it gets watch mainly around Halloween, mostly because its strange not because it scary. Definitely a film to watch in a group and the lines are very quotable:
Dr Ray Stantz: I think we'd better split up.
Dr. Egon Spengler: Good idea.
Dr. Peter Venkman: Yeah... we can do more damage that way.
Dr. Peter Venkman: Ray has gone bye-bye, Egon... what've you got left?
Dr. Egon Spengler: Sorry, Venkman, I'm terrified beyond the capacity for rational thought.
Dr Ray Stantz: Everything was fine with our system until the power grid was shut off by dickless here.
Walter Peck: They caused an explosion!
Mayor: Is this true?
Dr. Peter Venkman: Yes it's true.
Dr. Peter Venkman: This man has no dick.
ps- The main character's last name is Venkman, mine is Veltman. Coincidence? I think n........probably.
