Has anyone done an edit for... Ghostbusters 2016

Is there an edit that “saves” this film for fans of the original? Something that takes an over-the-top ridiculous dumb comedy movie into a serious movie with some comedy that doesn’t treat everything as a joke or every male character as an idiot? I would love to give this movie a try but I don’t think I can bring myself to watch the original.

Unless you’re good enough at editing you can re-write the entire script and recast every character I don’t think there’s much hope at saving this one.

I guess I’m just trying to find an edit that removes the over-the-top dumb moments and makes the film more tolerable than the official version.

I watched one that was posted on FanEdit.org a few years back. However, while it got rid of the sillier moments, it only improved the film by a small margin. I agree with stwd4nder2 that the underlying film isn’t great. I am not sure there is much that can be done to fix it via a fanedit.

TM2YC did it on Fanedit.org. He titled it “Ghostbusters III.”

I saw, I’m not a fan of titling it that. It kind of ruins the immersion when you know its a reboot and not a sequel.
