Paul Feig Comments On Where His Ghostbusters Movie Went Wrong

2016's Ghostbusters reboot was probably one of the most hated movies before it came out, and even after the movie was released, a lot of people weren't impressed with what they got. Paul Feig, who directed the film, opens up about where the movie may have went wrong and why the film failed at the box office.

Talking to Vulture, Feig says:

"I think it kind of hampered us a little bit because the movie became so much of a cause… I think for some of our audience, they were like, ‘What the f–k? We don't wanna go to a cause. We just wanna watch a f—kin' movie.'"

"It was a great regret in my life that the movie didn't do better, 'cause I really loved it… It's not a perfect movie. None of my movies are perfect. I liked what we were doing with it. It was only supposed to be there to entertain people."

Having watched the movie, I can say that the problem doesn't necessarily stem from the movie going for a "cause," but the fact that the movie just wasn't good. The movie didn't flow well at all, and the funniest part about it was probably Kate McKinnon. No one can also forgive the travesty that is Fallout Boy's version of the Ghostbusters theme:

We don't exactly know what the future of the franchise will be, but hopefully someone knows what to do with Ghostbusters. The lore and concept of it just has so much room for potential, and it's a shame that the reboot just couldn't live up to it.
