Storyline

Paranormal researcher Abby Yates and physicist Erin Gilbert are trying to prove that ghosts exist in modern society. When strange apparitions appear in Manhattan, Gilbert and Yates turn to engineer Jillian Holtzmann for help.

Armed with proton packs and plenty of attitude, the four women prepare for an epic battle as more than 1,000 mischievous ghouls descend on Times Square.

The movie is full of misandrists (like all those TV commercials), not a single one states an opinion that doesn't have to do with the presence of men in the world. You all (I can write in English) should go apologize to your fathers.
