Ivan Reitman's sequel to the phenomenally successful Ghostbusters is looser and more self-assured than the original. The film opens with a title reading "Five Years Later" and finds the ghostbusters living in hard times. A restraining order has forbidden the boys to partake in paranormal warfare, and as a result they have had to seek other lines of work. Ray (Dan Aykroyd) and Winston (Ernie Hudson) spend their time performing at children's' birthday parties, and Egon (Harold Ramis) is busy conducting experiments investigating the effect of human emotions on the environment, leaving ghostbusting behind. Venkman (Bill Murray) and Dana (Sigourney Weaver) have split up. Venkman now hosts a local cable show called "The World of the Psychic." Dana, now divorced and the mother of a little baby named Oscar, works as an art restorer in a museum -- and this is where the plot kicks in. While Dana is restoring a portrait of a 16th-century tyrant by the name of Vigo the Carpathian, the portrait becomes hexed. The evil Vigo wants to return to life by taking over the body of Dana's little child. Vigo has enlisted Dana's boss, Janosz Poha (Peter MacNicol), to compel Dana to cooperate. Soon dirty sludge and slime flow through the streets of Manhattan, and the ghostbusters have to reunite to save the city from a funky paranormal evil. Paul Brenner, Rovi

TITLE: Ghostbusters 2
GENRE: SciFi/Fantasy supernatural near term
CAST: Bill Murray, Sig Weaver, Dan Aykroyd, Har Ramis, Ric Moranis, Ann Potts, Ern Hudson and Peter MacNicol
PLOT: Evil returns and this time we learn that there is good slime and bad slime. An entity from the past is lining up the ingredients for his return to rule all mankind. His power is manifested in bd slime. After some lab experiments our heroes learn how to harness the good slime. The Battle Royale again takes place in NYC and again requires the help from a larger than life being.
RETURN ON INVASTMENT: 9 of 10; Everything is the same as last smash hit, or is it? No a lot of the music is different which with Aykroyd's involvement you wonder how could it go that wrong? The addition of MacNicol is wonderful and his portrayal as a disfunctional character is at times grating but overall brilliant and inovative.
DVD BONUS: None, they got most of it on the first one.
ADDED NOTES: Since there is a child involved in this one, it would be interesting to take the franchise way over the top and do a true SciFi depiction of the 2nd or even 3rd generation team in action (oops, can I get a cut of revenues for that idea?)
