The first Ghostbusters was a masterpiece. I can assure that it is a movie you can see any day and at any time. It was written by the pair Dan Aykroyd and Harold Ramis. This 1989 sequel had some problems, even though it completes the first part, it was more like the same thing, just being cemented now on screen.
The take to which the writing pair took was a fun beginning where the team of Ghostbusters were struggling to get work as ghost busting was no longer a viable thing. This for me dragged a little, but the moment the ghost busting begun, it was just cool to see the four gear up. Even with that said, I believe the first movie is not complete until you see this second one.

After saving New York City in the first film five years ago the amazing Ghostbusters, consisting of Egon Spengler, Ray Stantz, Peter Venkman, and Winston Zeddemore are now broke to the core.

The Ghosbusting team were sued for unimaginable fees for the property damage they caused when they were saving New York. To add to that, they were further banned from investigating or partaking to disrupt or interfere with anything supernatural. This forced the team out of business.
When a friend calls them when her baby 's carriage moved by itself, uncontrolled to the middle of a busy intersection. The team decided to investigate. This led them to see a pink slime flowing under the city, their disturbance caused a city blackout. The team was arrested, but during the court trial ghosts were released in the courtroom.
This caused them to have their ban lifted and they began ghostbusting duties.

Here is some nice trivia:
Aykroyd conceived Ghostbusters idea for Saturday Night Live, with himself and John Belushi taking up the mantel. The skit was tagged "Ghostmashers" and the duo will be travelling through time and space, on their adventure.
After the death of Belushi, he and Ramis rewrote the script, with the first movie going all out to be nominated at the 57th Academy Awards.
This sequel was not that lucky to get nominated for pretty much the prestigious awards, and it also didn’t get included in the AFI's 100 Years...100 Laughs list of film comedies as the Ghostbusters was listed as 28th.
The first Ghostbusters was selected to be preserved by the United States Library of Congress.
Ghostbusters three never got to see the light of day, adding the Death of Ramis and the age of the characters, a reboot was something many expected.
The 2016 reboot (Ghostbusters (2016)), was not as amazing as the first movie, neither was it even as good as this one. It was an all-female cast, that for me dove too much into irrelevance than it should a good story.
