The remake of the dearly loved classic certainly didn’t go according to plan. Uninspired writing substantiated clichéd plot nodes and ruined the good work of the cast. Erin Gilbert (Wiig) finally triumphs in life when she’s up for tenure. Wary of her actions until she officially gets it, she is paid a visit by an ardent fan with her book on ghosts and supernatural, of which she has no idea, and immediately recollects it to be a spoof written by her conniving with her old friend Abigail. She goes to confront her and instead is taken with by Abigail and her outlandish partner Holtzmann to a haunted house where they encounter a ghost. Gilbert loses her tenure and is fired after a video of the same is virile and instead co-founds Ghostbusters with Abigail and Holtzmann.
