(unlike the tame and family-friendly second movie)
People call the second film tame, and there are certainly some lighter elements to it than the first film, but it's fucking creepy at a lot of points, as well, and feels considerably darker: In Ghostbusters, Dana sees a dog in her fridge roaring at her. In Ghostbusters II, her baby is almost shoved in front of a speeding bus, her bathtub tries to eat her and then Janosz in drag steals her baby.

I've said before that Ecto-1A is the avatar for the confused, tonally discordant mess that Ghostbusters II is, both lighter and darker at the same time.
