Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that there isn't much to shock tweens and up in this mock-horror film. There are numerous ghosts running rampant through NYC, but it's played for comedy over scares (like when the Titanic disembarks). Still, ghosts are the "bad guys" and get eliminated with laser guns by a crew of wisecracking guys. At one point a baby is kidnapped by a ghost and a sinister spirit tries to inhabit his body. The baby is rescued, of course, but there is another real person, hilariously portrayed by Peter MacNicol, who wants to steal the baby in order to woo its mother.
Some kissing and "making out" that is more suggested than graphic.
The Ghostbusters crew attacks the slime and the ghosts with laser guns that shoot light and goo. A baby is kidnapped by a ghost and is threatened with possession by Vigo.
Some mild insults.
Ghostbusters try their hardest to bring out the best in New Yorkers, defeating negative energy with positive.
The city of New York gets great publicity.

Bill Murray and Sigourney Weaver have wine with dinner. The slime substance has some mood-enhancing effects.
