Brief Synopsis: "Five years later, the Ghostbusters have been plagued by lawsuits and court orders, and their once-lucrative business is bankrupt. However, when Dana begins to have ghost problems again, the boys come out of retirement only to be promptly arrested. The Ghostbusters discover that New York is once again headed for supernatural doom, with a river of ectoplasmic slime bubbling beneath the city and an ancient sorcerer attempting to possess Dana's baby and be born anew."

Drezzy65 - Nowhere near as great as the first one, largely due to an uninspired cast (well, everybody but Dan Aykroyd seems to just be doing it for the paycheck), but still a very, very solid movie. The jokes aren't as good and the threat isn't as big, but Vigo the Carpathian is still one of my favorite movie villains to date.
