    Some Men Are Pretty Mad About Female "Ghostbusters"

    Who you gonna call? Probably a Men's Rights Message Board.

    Even back when it was in the rumor stages, the Internet was expressing strong opinions about Bridesmaids director Paul Feig's proposed all-female Ghostbusters remake.

    Columbia Pictures

    With many of those opinions ranging from "That sounds like a great idea," to "Oh man, what a great idea." A very understandable contingent of critics voiced the "Why reboot a classic?" opinion, which remains a great question, especially as Hollywood gets so unapologetically mired in reboot and sequel culture.

    However, a still (thankfully) smaller contingent has really honed in on the real problem with the new installment of Ghostbusters.

    This doesn't sound like gender-based pandering. Not at all. http://t.co/c4KzAwA5D5

    And by the cast as "all female" & "reboot" also must makes it seem like just a weak gender pandering than actual effort. #Ghostbusters

    @loudmouthjulia and I'm ok with reversing course and doing female ghostbusters, but why do you need all four of them to be women?

    Why are they turning the #Ghostbusters franchise into Charlie's Angles? Reboots are crap anyway but think I've already written this one off.

    Well my day just got ruined... #Ghostbusters. All female cast burns me out. A gender mixed team with a female lead wouldn't bug me but this?

    Mark my words, the Ghostbusters reboot will be both pandering to feminazi's and completely unfunny to anyone not already a Michael Bay fan.

    With a rumored cast of Bridesmaids' Kristen Wiig and Melissa McCarthy, and SNL's Leslie Jones and Kate McKinnon, funny should be a safe bet.
