Before we get started here, let it be known that I love Ghostbusters II and consider it one of my favorite comedy sequels. That is NOT to be confused with comparing it to the original, because that’s blasphemy. With the reboot of Ghostbusters (aka the most pre-hated movie of 2016) coming to theaters Friday, the gang at Screen Junkies decided to go back to the first attempt to cash in on the greatness of the original 1984 classic with a new addition to their Honest Trailers series.
Check out here below the Honest Trailer for 1989’s Ghostbusters II, which strives to make the point that this sequel already ruined your childhood (not mine, though!).
Today is Valentine’s Day 2016, which, according to Ghostbusters II, is the end of the world.
In the 1989 sequel, Bill Murray’s Dr. Peter Venkman has gone from ghostbusting to TV host of World Of The Psychic. In one episode of the talk show, Dr. Venkman interviews a woman named Elaine (Chloe Webb), who states that according to her sources, the end of the world will be on February 14, 2016. “Bummer,” Venkman replies, before hearing how Elaine knows this is the date (from aliens, of course!).
Check out the scene here below from Ghostbusters II, and be sure to make this final day on Earth a good one!
