Of all the Hollywood franchise revivals that are coming through the pipeline in the next fear years, it's safe to say that the Ghostbusters reboot is one of the ones that has the steepest uphill climb. Though the film has a respected comedic helmsman in Paul Feig (Bridesmaids, Spy) and a cast fronted by some of the leading ladies of comedy (Kristin Wiig and Melissa McCarthy, for starters), the new take on the paranormal investigators has been a lightning rod for controversy since it got the green light.
