“Ghostbusters” reboot: Ticket sales are OK. Hope the movie is funny.

I still haven’t gotten the chance to see the reboot of “Ghostbusters,” starring a lot of very funny ladies perhaps best known for appearing on “Saturday Night Live,” as opposed to a bunch of funny men, some of whom were best known for appearing on “Saturday Night Live.” But as I wrote in my column in the Palm Beach Post today, I have a vested interest in it being good, or at least funny on a completely basic and stupid level, because humanity won’t stop showing us its worst, and because don’t we all need a laugh right now? I sure do. I can’t keep watching “Mickey Mouse Clubhouse” with my kid and wishing the pain away. So far, it’s doing OK in ticket sales – not great, not a bomb. I can’t help but think that the brutal hype before it even opened has made some people wait to see what everyone else says. Me, I’m going today, I hope.
