Ghostbusters the best movie ever?  JUL 07 2009

Forget Star Wars. Caitlin Moran says that Ghostbusters is the greatest movie ever made.

The Great Ghostbusters Campaign must start today. Here. Starting with this inarguable, scientific fact: Ghostbusters is still the most successful comedy film of all time, with a 1984 box-office return of $229.2 million. But this, of course, in turn, makes it the most successful film OF ALL TIME, FULL STOP -- given that comedy is the supreme genre, and rules over every other format, such as "serious", "foreign" or "black and white".
