I dunno. I've just watched it and it doesn't seem *that* bad. I suppose I'll have to wait and see the movie before making any real judgements but the trailer doesn't totally blow it in my opinion.

Its interesting to note how guys are twice as likely to think it's crap with 62% ( B and D) while only 31% of women (B and D) think so.
I don't like this trailer as much as the clips that I saw on Ellen, those were actually funny :) Though I still don't want to see the movie.
My overall feel of the movie is that yea, it's not gonna be a good movie, but I think there will be some laughs-god forbid it's as bad as Warcraft. That was a waste of money :/1

In the original, the men got to spout off lines about their esoteric knowledge. The awkward pauses made things funny. When the city treated them like crap, you could see both sides of the argument. The slapstick was there, but wasn't the entire point. And the entire thing didn't look like a Technicolor acid trip either.
The new one relies on PC jokes, cheap gags, recycled references to the original, Scooby-Doo animation, sets so overblown-colorful that they make Guardians of the Galaxy look monochrome, and actresses who just don't make for strong leads.
Also, bad writing. Chris Hemsworth is a terrible substitute for Rick Moranis. He just can't pull off the nerdy with the same level of authenticity.
In fact, that's the word to describe the new one: it doesn't feel *authentic*. On top of that, the entire Ghostbusters concept worked so well because it embraced the 80s culture of when it was made. Now, it feels like a Disco Dan still trying to be cool long past its prime.3
