Trivia

A poster of the Boris Karloff film Isle of the Snake People (1971) is on display when the villain recreates the glory days of 1970s New York City. Such a recreation is complete with movie posters (Taxi Driver (1976)), neon signs, naughty businesses, billboards advertising products from the time period and even a sign celebrating the end of the Vietnam War.

Goofs

Erin says "Mercado" is Spanish for table; mercado is Spanish for market. It's running gag that Erin is really bad at Spanish. Earlier, she mistranslated what the theater janitor was saying when he went past on a gurney. See more »

Avoid Like The Plague
11 July 2016 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I went into this movie with an open mind hoping that it would not be as bad as the trailers and TV spots suggest. It is. I really wanted this movie to surprise me, to make me laugh to make me care for the characters and have some investment in the story, but it failed to achieve any of that. What I saw was a two hour mess of a movie. An unfunny, poorly written, poorly edited, contrived cash-in on a beloved classic which has some of the poorest dialogue and worst performances I've seen in a while. The computer generated effects were like something out of a live action Disney picture. The music, in particular the theme tune was uninspiring and added no impact or energy to the movie. I honestly can't think of any redeeming qualities that this film has. After waiting so long for a new Ghostbusters film this comes as a major disappointment. Some things are just best left alone.
