Three former parapsychology professors set up shop as a unique ghost removal service.
In rehearsal, Bill Murray (Venkman) teased Yugoslav model Slavitza Jovan (Gozer) about her pronunciation of the line "Choose and Perish", which sounded to him like "Jews and Berries"(!) and he'd say "There are no Jews and Berries here!"
Dr. Peter Venkman:
All right, I'm gonna turn over the next card. Concentrate... I want you to tell me what you think it is.
Early in the film (around 13 minutes) On their way back to their office, a medium shot of the sequence, revealing the inside of the portable video camera equipment where the videocassette would be kept, there is no tape. Ray (Dan Aykroyd) earlier asked Venkman (Bill Murray) where the tape was that they had erased the previous day.
Opening titles give the name of the movie as "Ghost Busters" (two words). But in nearly all media/ads and even packaging/casing for home video releases, it is spelled as "Ghostbusters" (one word).
On the 70mm prints, the shot featuring the cover of The Atlantic, during the montage, is composited differently: the shot opens 'clean', then the cover slides in from the right, holds and then wipes to the left. On 35mm prints, the shot opens with the cover already in place.
