The All-Girl Ghostbusters Nose Ain't Afraid of No Reboots

Jul 22, 2016

In January 2015, when it was announced that a planned new Ghostbusters movie would feature four female leads, internet fanbros went crazy. And then, this March, when the first Ghostbusters trailer came out, the internet fanbros went crazy all over again.

And now the movie is finally out. (And guess what the internet fanbros did.)

So we invited practically every woman who's ever been on The Nose to see the film and join us today to discuss it.

Eight of them are here. Some of them love the original movie. Some of them don't particularly care about the original movie. Some of them have never seen the original movie.

All of them have seen the new movie.

This hour The Nose is all-girls (plus Colin) and all-Ghostbusters (give or take).
