Whilst preparing to give an important lecture, Erin attempts to loosen up and inadvertently wiggles her bum in front of a male colleague who has walked in without her knowing.

Whilst discussing what their logo should be, their receptionist suggests a buxom ghost image.

A few innuendos throughout, and some blatant sexual themes, including ogling, and suggestive dialogue.

Throughout this film there are several scenes were the male receptionist is see topless.

not much worse than the 80s classic. Appropriate for children as the ghosts look very fake.

One use of s**t, a few damn's and hell's, a few a**, a couple b**ch. Extended use (approx 30 sec) of the middle finger in one particular scene. Overall, probably a little more than the original.

Extended version uses alternate takes of certain scenes as well as additional scenes, which adds one use of the F-word, a***ole, and religious profanities, thereby steering the film away from kid-friendly.

There's one scene in a bar where the Ghostbusters have a beer. One of them is slightly merry.

Ghost scenes are on a par with the original. Nothing intensely frightening but could give younger children a fright nonetheless.

MPAA/USA - Rated PG-13 for supernatural action and some crude humor.

BBFC/UK - Rated 12A (moderate threat, infrequent crude references, infrequent strong language).

Rated PG-13 for supernatural action and some crude humor
