Girls Meet the 'Ghostbusters' Stars & Remind Us Why This Remake's So Damn Important

Like we said: amazing. This whole movie is flawless and perfect and we haven't even seen it yet. But on behalf of future female comedy stars and future female Ghostbusters everywhere, we're already sending a million thank-yous this movie's way.
