The kids soon discover that their grandfather was one of the original ghostbusters and they find all of his ghostbusting stuff. They eventually figure out how to use it and try to capture the ghosts of the town. Carrie Coon plays the mother and does a very good job of portraying the emotions her character feels as she learns why her father left her at such a young age Her two kids are played by Finn Wolfhard and Mckenna Grace. The movie also includes some of the actors from the original Ghostbusters such as Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Ernie Hudson, Sigourney Weaver, as well as Annie Potts. At the very end of the film, there was a tribute to Harold Ramis, one of the original Ghostbusters, since he passed away in 2014. Overall, the movie was really good and they did a very nice job at including parts from the old films while also adding in lots of new details.
