(2021) (McKenna Grace, Finn Wolfhard) (PG-13)
- QUICK TAKE:
- Comedy/Horror: Two kids discover that their grandfather was a former ghostbuster and must use his equipment to battle a new outbreak of ghouls.
Times have been better for Callie (CARRIE COON), a long-divorced mom who ends up evicted and thus moves with her 15-year-old son, Trevor (FINN WOLFHARD), and 12-year-old daughter, Phoebe (McKENNA GRACE), to Summerville, Oklahoma where her long-estranged father lived until his recent death and the local mining operation has been closed for years. Hoping to eke some sort of financial gain from his house or belongings, Callie instead finds a decrepit old farmhouse worth nothing and farmland that was never tended to.
Trevor, however, finds himself attracted to teenager Lucky (CELESTE O'CONNOR) who works at the local diner where he ends up getting a job. Meanwhile, Phoebe finds a kindred spirit in Podcast (LOGAN KIM), another student who's attending summer school taught by Mr. Grooberson (PAUL RUDD) who shows the kids old horror movies in class.
Things change when Phoebe discovers that her grandfather -- who the locals viewed as crazy and called him "dirt farmer" -- was none other than a ghostbuster decades ago. That comes in handy when she and Podcast encounter a ghost. As the supernatural activity in town then starts increasing, it's up to them and her brother to use their grandfather's old gear to battle this new outbreak of ghouls and something that could be far worse.
- WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
- It features kids in the leads, so that could be a draw, as might the previous "Ghostbusters" movies.
- WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: PG-13
- For supernatural action and some suggestive references.
