Melissa McCarthy and her Ghostbusters castmates have heard all the horrible things, including the misogynist comments, fans have made about the film. To the harshest of her dissenters, she has a few words of her own.
shut up melissa. your acting is about as transparent as a greasy paper bag from a fast food restaurant. fans wanted another movie in the franchise but not like this.
i am also getting tired of her acting. i saw that spy movie and it was terrible and this one doesn't look much better.
Agreed. She looks a groundhog, and her only "acting" is to be the "comic relief" fat person in everything she's in. I think she needs to find a new career tbh.
So, these shallow people are responsible for rebooting one of the most entertaining stories in cinema? Can't wait to uncover those layers upon layers of pure comedy genius. Oh, wait.
But see your type of asinine comment is what garnered her response, you want to say the movie looks bad that's fine but you go and make a childish personal attack and expect people to just accept it, doesn't work that way. People have been saying incredibly cruel stuff about her and her movies, why do they feel the need to do that, I realize the internet is a safe place for you to act like and asshole but really its not necessary, the movie doesn't interest you then dont go see it simple as that.
i didn't attack her. i said her acting is crap. that's not an attack it's a fact. and get outta her with "safe place" garbage. i'd happily say that to her face. it's no like i was calling her names, making comments about her weight or anything else of that nature.
We have friends, we just don't like the reboot. Kind of a shit, immature comeback to be honest.
For once, I agree with you.
Ironically, all my friends think the new Ghostbusters looks just as crap as I do...
Exactly Foxtrot, we are friends and we also hate this shitty reboot.
Exactly. This movie was made by a bunch of sexist bastards. Ghostbusters was never about disparaging women, it was about a bunch of dudes who got together to stop Ghosts with their crazy beam guns, and not letting the streams cross. Apparently Hollywood has taken it upon themselves to womanize these "reboots", because rather than coming up with an original idea or making a new film, they're just going to reboot something with an all female cast to fight those evil men.
Shit comments from her and half the people hating on this movie for being band wagoners and well sexist bast***ds. A shit show all around imo.
considering the trailer has almost a million dislikes then that's a lot of people without friends.
They should all just become friends with each other, then each will have a million friends.
I hit dislike at the start of the trailer when it says "Four scientists saved New York"... Winston wasn't a scientist in the original movies. He was originally in the original draft, but they decided to have him not be one so that the others would explain everything to the audience in layman's terms. The crap that came later in the trailer didn't help either.
That has a lot more to do with the the internet hate club then anything else. The super cool hipsters literally hate everything these days.
You're an ugly untalented slob of an actress whose skills could put a plank of would to shame.
Sincerely, A Misogynist
Well at least you got right to the point and didn't try to hide the fact you're an a-hole.
The misogynist comments go a bit far and are almost laughable but that's not to say there aren't genuine complaints. I don't care if the leads are women, men or puppies, It just has to work and it has to be funny. A "Ghostbusters" level of funny. The trailers for these movies look incredibly slapstick and have a strong 'been there done that' vibe. The original Ghostbusters movie has humor that still holds up today, that's a testament to how good a movie it was. It has nothing to do with the fact that the main cast had testies.
I'm sure Melissa has a fine pair of testies..
Kidding aside, I thought the fuss was entirely about them being women? Unfunny women, but still women.
Well for some people sure, it's entirely misogyny. I do think Kristen Wiig and Kate McKinnon have the capacity to be funny. I just don't see it here.That's the biggest concern for me. I'm still gonna see it and give it a fair shot like I do with all movies. So we shall see!
stop calling it misogyny it's not... just because you hate a few women doesn't make you a misogynist you have to hate women in general to earn that label... jebus... you'd think that people wouldn't want to water down such a horrible word
nothing about them being women, it just looks bad. the actors, namely melissa since she should have her picks more decent roles, seems to have signed on just for the money. i think she could be a good actor but has fallen into the adam sandler role of crappy movies that seem to be mostly the same slapstick humor.
Was that directed at me? I didn't say everyone was a misogynist. Hence for my use of the word "some people". Mostly a loud bunch on the Internet. If you don't like a particular actress in this movie or the entire cast for that matter then that's perfectly fine. I personally know people that have said this movie NEEDED an all male cast, those are the people I'm talking about.
She means social media friends...clearly.
What is she 12? When/if the movie flops will she blame people without friends
"I think that’s very confusing,’ but then everyone said, ‘We don’t care what you think,’” she recalled."
She should since they are the people who will not pay to watch the movie
Their still playing that sexist card. As if this is getting anymore hate than what other bad movies that were based on something that has a nostalgic fan base got, like the Transformers movies, the new Ninja Turtles movie, The Dukes of Hazzard movie or the live action Scooby Doo movies. Maybe, just maybe, people are hating on it because it looks like sh*t and has nothing to do with the fact that the main characters are females.
Nobody likes a shitty, pandering reboot.
I hope you stop ruining legacies.
well I have lots of friends and all of them hate this piece of crap remake, still I hope she finds a gym ;)
A gym? she has such a high body fat percentage, a half mile walk everyday for a month would probably cause her to drop 15 lbs lol
Just another movie pushing the liberal agenda, i really can't stand these actors and actress nowadays.
This woman, Amy Schumer, Jennifer Lawrence are really awful.
I wasn't fond of that trailer myself. The originals are still good to this day. What she said was really childish.
Oh poor Melissa, I too wish something or you....weight loss
Is her role the Marshmellow man?
"They" as if the entire population doesn't hate this movie.
The sad part about this is that an all girls-team could have worked very well if done right. If they featured Sigourney Weaver and Annie Potts as Ghostbusters with maybe two (or three) new ladies being trained by Dan Aykroyd and Bill Murray, people would have been all for that because they had major roles in the previous films. Then have a foe so dangerous and powerful that everybody would have to get involved to defeat it.
They are gonna try to hide behind misogyny for the crap storm that will ensue after the films release. You watch. Well...wait DON'T watch. :)
All the people you've name-checked are credited on IMDB as being in the new film. What there role is, who knows, but considering one of the main reasons there's not been a Ghostbusters 3 with the original cast (Harold Ramis' death not withstanding) is Bill Murray not wanting to, then you maybe yearning for a film that was never going to be made - it has been nearly 30 years since the second one, after all.
I like melissa mcarthy but this movie looks more like a spoof of ghosterbusters than a rebot. The last trailer looks alot better but this was a obvious cash grab on the name alone.
I have friends, they don't like the look of it either.
Guess what these films all have in common;
The nutty professor
The Italian job
Nightmare on elm street
The Karate kid
Yep, they're all films where you're not allowed to watch the superior original anymore because a shitty remake has been made... oh wait.
If the new Ghostbusters film turns out to be garbage then so what? It wouldn't be the first.
And if you're worried about it casting a shadow over the franchise, then don't. The second movie did that nearly 30 years ago.
She should be cast as the next Bebop if they ever reboot TMNT to an all girl cast. Would save the company cash considering she would need minimal makeup done 👌
Haha, seriously though. . . with the way things are going I can almost imagine it being in the works if n4g is still around we will meet back here to cry
antagonizing the Internets is not a good thing. The movie IS made for geeks and people that want to relieve their childhood and for the new comers, there is something to be said about four bros, bumbling their way to save NYC from a ghost-apocalypse. Doesn't ring true when its 4 women, no matter how angry Leslie Jones gets.
In fact it would have helped if the original cast was there to sort-of hand over the baton, but we all know thats not possible. Anyway good luck with this movie. You're going to need it.
