The Ghostbusters (2016) are the four main characters in the film's 2016 reboot of Ghostbusters.
This article will be focusing on the female team of the Ghostbusters.
Why They Can't Bust Ghosts
- As all of them are female Ghostbusters in the film, they have no purpose whatsoever. Instead, their creation is all about political agendas rather than being actual Ghostbusters or entertaining an audience.
- They feel like they didn’t exist since they mostly exist to add new materials not found from the original 2 films.
- All of them severely lack chemistry and charisma, and are portrayed as obnoxious in the film.
- The performances by the actresses are poor and the comedy that comes from them is not funny.
- The jokes that come out of the mouths are unfunny like flatulence jokes, burp jokes and poorly executed sex jokes.
- The four new Ghostbusters even stole the equipment to build the Proton packs instead of building them from scratch.
- They are spoiled, whiny brats throughout the film, especially Abby when she whines about getting only one wonton in her soup.
- Erin intentionally releases a ghost to Martin Heiss (Bill Murray's character), killing him because she was mad at him for doubting them catching ghosts. This makes them indirect murderers.
- And insult to injury, Jillian says that he wasn't Ghostbusters material after Martin's death. This line is a slap to the face of the fans of the original Ghostbusters, and an insult to Peter Venkman fans.
- Patty is literally a walking stereotype.
- These characters, unfortunately, started the infamous trend of SJW and radical feminism propaganda characters where female characters appear to be extremely mean and catty as hell and/or needlessly overpowered for the sake of "shoehorned feminism" and woke pandering since the late-2010s, which escalated even worse after the infamous #MeToo movement started in 2017.
- These characters along with the film have been declared non-canon to the Ghostbusters series due to being propaganda characters.
- Erin does save Abby from Rowan near the end in an admittedly awesome scene.
- Despite being a walking stereotype, Patty is a well-written comic-relief like Kevin Beckman. To demonstrate, she gets chased by a dummy and yells at Abby "GET OUT OF MY FRIEND! GHOST!!!" by ending up slapping her is very hilarious to some people.
