The problem with the movie was that it just wasn't funny, or Ghost Busters.
The director was ideologically convinced that by putting funny women into a scene, everything would be super funny.
So they ad-libbed half the script and winged the rest.
Because fuck taking those funny women, having them work through a tight script with a set pacing and jokes tailored to their delivery and type so as to develop the team as distinct personalities.
They are funny women, just point a camera at them and let them be funny!
Don't make them work hard, we're here to have fun and celebrate how ideologically superior we are!
Pshaw to all the neanderthals who demand we "respect the legacy" and "follow best practice script writing"! We are not making art here, we are making a political statement!
Society must recognise how funny and great women are by celebrating me letting them fool around and improvise a lot because I staunchly refuse to "give direction" or - heaven forfend- control what these women do because they are obviously so much better people than me, I dare not interfere with their helpless floundering as they try to make up dialogue on the spot to construct my fucking scene for me.
So yeah, that is basically it. Moviemaking took a backseat to ideology, there was no real script and a ton of scenes that were obviously forced improv, and the director hated the original movies.
I'm actually sorry for the actresses who had to go through this bullshit and justify to themselves and the world having their names attached to that.
