What You Need To Know Before Seeing Ghostbusters #Ghostbusters


Earlier this week I was given the opportunity to screen Ghostbusters at AMC Elmwood Palace in Harahan.  While I was watching Ghostbusters with my youngest two children (9 years old and 11 years old) and my best friend’s youngest son (9 years old), I felt like I needed to give some pointers for all of the moms and dads who will be considering taking their children to see Ghostbusters in the coming weeks.

What You Need To Know Before Seeing Ghostbusters #Ghostbusters

1.  It will make you scream!  Ghostbusters went from making us feel like jumping out of our skin to belly-laughing.  It was a roller coaster of laugh out loud/scream out loud amusement, truly a fun ride!

2.  It is not a remake or sequel to the first Ghostbusters.  Ghostbusters 2016 is a whole new movie with witty and courageous women.  If you want to teach our girls the true meaning of girl power and how to take the lead in a world that is not always very forgiving; then you are going to LOVE Ghostbusters.

3.  Go potty before the movie.  From the “middle finger” monologue that will leave you in tears laughing to the eye popping and screen popping ghosts; you will definitely need to enter the theater with an empty bladder.

4.  It was perfect for my 9 year olds.  The two nine year olds and the eleven year old that I took to see Ghostbusters LOVED it!  They did not get bored for one second.  They laughed just as hard and screamed just as loud as I did.  There is mild language and ghosts that pop out, so you will have to use your discretion for your children.  My nine year old has already asked to see it again 🙂

5.  Get there early.  You will definitely want to make sure you get to the theater in plenty of time to get your snacks and find a great seat before the movie starts.  There is not one minute of this movie that you will want to miss.
