Honest Trailers Goes After 'Ghostbusters II'
I grew up watching both Ghostbusters and Ghostbusters 2 religiously, so both movies hold a beloved and special place within my heart. Vigo the Carpathian and the river of slime are practically as iconic to me as Gozer and the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man. And while I can confidently say today that Ghostbusters still holds up as one of my favorite films, I'm willing to admit that Ghostbusters 2 has some problems. And given the hate that the new Ghostbusters reboot has been receiving online, the folks at Screen Junkies have released an Honest Trailer to remind fans that the reputation of Ghostbusters was already tarnished with the release of its 1989 sequel.

Some highlights in the video include pointing out that the movie basically apes the plot of the first film, setting Vigo's lines to heavy metal music, and a reference to the online reaction to the new Ghostbusters. But I definitely think they go too far in comparing Ghostbusters II to The Hangover Part II. It's not that bad.

So check out the video below, and relive the river of slime that is Ghostbusters II.
