I think they put enough in there to make it work. We get that Ray blames Egon for the demise (perhaps even perceived sabotage) of their main enterprise, we get that he probably gets calls from whackjobs all the time and probably has a longstanding need to set the record straight.

There's also the layer that among all of the Ghostbusters... Ray and Egon were probably the best of friends. The only two science minded of the team.

Also, looks like the movie is up to 90 million domestically. Basically, it pulled the same box office this weekend as it did last weekend. Overseas, though, it's not really pulling in much of anything.

Ya it works alright.

I forgot to mention Sigourney Weaver...
Spoiler:
Her “scene” just felt like a comedy sketch. Like they just filmed that for fun. Was that really all they want her for?

A better part for her would have been if she arranged for them to meet up in Summerville or something. Anything. Annie Potts only appears briefly but she actually had a role.

Spoiler:
Definitely Sigourney's part was a letdown. As i ruminated earlier... it appears to only exist as some kind of afterthought to "correct" something "problematic" about GB1. I giggled in it, but it definitely wasn't anything close to what it should have been.

I was kind of hoping the fake spoilers about her pulling up with the guys and her own jumpsuit would have been true. Show her and Venkman still being lovey, wedding bands on both in the Gozer fight (and she has a very personal stake in the Gozer fight) and maybe a funny moment or two with her and the new Gatekeeper... that would have been enough.

I avoided everything about the movie for the last week but ya that fake spoiler would have been cool.

Spoiler:
So I’m assuming that the original 3 kept their equipment and jumpsuit since they didn’t meet everyone else before.

I know Ray mentioned that Egon took everything when he moved away but they clearly did not get there, suit up and hide until that very moment.

Which is cool. To imagine in there everyday lives they each have their proton packs in storage.

GB: The Videogame revealed her to be a Shandor descendant, right?
