Ghostbusters casts unite on Jimmy Kimmel

Ghostbusters

The stars of the newest Ghostbusters are baffled by critics who’ve complained about rebooting the 1984 comedy classic with an all-female cast.

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Leslie Jones, Melissa McCarthy, Kate McKinnon and Kristen Wiig expressed their surprise and disappointment with people who said you shouldn't tamper with the original.

"I just thought, 'Really? Are we still there?'" McCarthy said.

"When people started asking me about the gender stuff, I would say, 'It's not a man thing, it's not a woman thing. It's a 'Ghostbusters' thing," Jones said.

Wiig agreed, noting that the movie differs from the original in several ways. “It’s not just about it starring women,” she added.

The original cast including Bill Murray and Dan Aykroyd appeared together with the new cast on Jimmy Kimmel live last week.

Original Ghostbusters star Bill Murray, who originally said he would skip the reboot, told Jimmy Kimmel on his show last week that he’s given his full support to the new cast, saying, “It was only ‘cause I knew these girls were funny.”
