Ghostbusters Love

Advertisement - Guide continues below


Ghostbusters has a lot of love. We've got the usual romantic plots we often find in comedies, with the lead guy chasing after a girl who's way out of his league. Then that love plot is tied in with what we see in adventure stories, where he rescues her from a monster to win her love.

To top it off, we've also got a couple comic love-subplots going on. Whoa, who knew Ghostbusters was a romantic comedy? Besides romantic love, Ghostbusters gives us the brotherly love between the Ghostbusters themselves, while also rekindling a love of New York City that'd been lost in 1980's.
