Dr Loomis’s Comment

There are the weeks new releases with Ghostbusters sure to take most of the media attention. That said Ice Age Collision Course is released in the UK and should so well. Nothing that really interests me this week, the new Ghostbusters film is NOT one for me.

If you like Melissa McCarthy comedies such as Bridesmaids, Tammy, Spy or The Boss then you will probably love it.  I don’t like any of those convey belt comedies she does.

Mind you McCarthy is in good company as her films remind me of ones with Adam sandler, Owen Wilson and Ben Stiller in the sense that they are really poor comedy films relying on the same gags which are mainly slapstick or incredibly obvious.

That said I’m pretty sure Ghostbusters will do good business plus with all the merchandising will probably see Ghostbusters 2. Each to their own!
