Primarily a parody the original Star Wars trilogy.

It technically holds up well, but there are references which wouldn't make sense to a younger person. Bits and pieces feel old, but a surprising amount of it doesn't.

Recommended as a one-off watch for those who have seen and appreciated other bubblegum 1980s comedies. Otherwise, pass on this.

Definitely not as good as Ghostbusters (1984), but an adequate film nonetheless.

Failed scientists begin a ghost capturing service, and the need for their services grows, threatening all of New York city.

I don't have a lot of movies anything like this which I could consider listing as mandatory, so this one gets in pretty easily.
