[Ghostbusters grows] less amusing in its second hour… Mostly, however, the remake chugs along pleasantly, albeit with a few barbed digs at occasional sexism (“Ain’t no bitches gonna hunt no ghosts!” scoffs an all-too-plausible online comment when the girls post a video). And of course there’s Kate McKinnon.

It’s an unfortunate movie for an extraordinary group of actors—which is why it’s important to distinguish the experience of watching the new “Ghostbusters,” which is difficult to celebrate, from the essential fact of its existence, which is a cause for celebration. That’s why, as a critic, I’m in conflict with myself—I want there to be more movies that resemble “Ghostbusters” in its casting and in its revision of exhausted and unchallenged tropes, but not in its bland and constrained artistry.

The result is a handcrafted Etsy satchel bomb, lobbed at the same white-guy pandering popular culture that produced the original 32 years ago. Paul Feig’s woman-driven remake of the 1984 film is one of the more sneakily political movies released by a major studio this year, all the more so because it carries itself with such a poker-faced, “I’m only a movie—relax, bros!” vibe (which is exactly the kind of comment that critics get whenever they criticize the insubstantiality of superhero movies).
