Surely you know of this film at the very least as it spawned a highly successful cartoon (which I loved as a kid) and it was hugely successful and had big name actors in it. It's not truly horror really, just sort of a comedy with some elements of a horror film i.e. ghosts. The premise is pretty much dilvulged in the title, they bust ghosts. Things start to change though when Peter (Murray) becomes involved with Dana (Weaver) who happens to have a ghost named Zuul bothering her apartment. The struggle proves more difficult for usual for the busters and it ends up being an action packed spectacular fun ride from there on out. Kids of just about any age should be able to enjoy this and yet they take the story seriously enough so it doesn't come across as one big joke which is also why it's so rewatcheable. Anyhow if you haven't seen it, you should and that is about all I can say!
