2. Ghostbusters (1984)
Director: Ivan Reitman
Eli Craig says: I saw Ghostbusters when I was a kid, and I think, to some degree, there was a part of that which came out in Tucker & Dale as well.
It was another loser-hero story, and it's so big and over the top. I love Bill Murray's nonchalant wit so much, plus that line "He slimed me!" When he gets slimed, there's this nonchalance to the danger. It's like there's this imminent danger of this apocalypse happening and these guys are the biggest screw-ups in the world taking on and defeating this apocalypse. I don't know. There's something that will always resonate with me about screw-ups winning a war against evil.
